The NBA has been pretty much the top story in the news over the last few days, but unfortunately it is not because of the current playoffs.
It’s because of Donald Sterling, owner of the Los Angeles clippers, who over the weekend had audio released where he asked his girlfriend not to bring black people to Clippers games, and asked her why she would even want to be associated with black people.
It just goes to show that as rich as one can be (he’s reportedly worth $2 billion), your money can’t make you any less ignorant. I mean, here’s a guy that, if reports are to be believed, has half of his net worth invested in a professional basketball team where a majority of the players that he employs…are black. Where a big chunk of the fan base that pays money to buy tickets to see his team play, are black. Where people that buy the jerseys of his teams players…are black.
