Donald Sterling and the NBA

Donald Sterling has managed to put both feet in his mouth, and his arse as well.  Sterling today was given the full wrath of National Basketball Association Commissioner, Adam Silver, of a lifetime ban of being in any NBA game, visit any LA Clippers facilities, attend any NBA sponsored events or conduct any business dealings with the NBA in any capacity, except the possibility of being forced to sell his ownership with the LA Clippers plus a $2.5 million fine for his comments made on April 9 and posted by TMZ on the 27th that Sterling allegedly made comments to his mixed race girlfriend, V. Stivivano about her Instagram photo of Magic Johnson.  The audio comments which were recorded on tape and released by TMZ appear to show that Sterling made racist remarks, such as "You can sleep with [black people], you can bring them in...not to bring them to my games" and also "...Don't put him [Magic] on an Instagram for the world to have to see so they have to call me.  And don't bring him to my games."

I really am appalled that after years of progress in racial harmony, we have a moron who has managed to show that the Ku Klux Klan movement is still alive and well.  Sterling has fueled racial hate and bigotry in America to a new low.  With ignorant pigs like Sterling, Paula Deen, Melissa Harris-Perry (for making fun at Mitt Romney's adopted black grandson), and others then we may all face the ultimate wrath one day....from an much higher authority who created different races among men and women.
