Words have consequences as Clippers owner Donald Sterling found out in a very large way. His 80 years of life experiences should have taught him this lesson. But old beliefs and habits die a hard death.

If his bi-racial (eye candy) ex girlfriend V. Stiviano is telling the truth it confirms Sterling's racism as well as his social awareness stupidity (or perhaps senility) to boot.

Sterling's reported remarks give a glimpse not only into the innermost feelings of Donald Sterling, but into a greater reality as well. A reality many refuse to recognize or admit, even if they recognize it exists. The reality that bigotry, racism, and intolerance does indeed still exist in 21st century America.

There has been criticism from fringe right buffoons with all the misinformation and BS that accompanies totally agenda driven rhetoric. As typical the truth lies beyond the rhetoric.

Mr. Sterling, banned for life from association with the Clippers, and fined 2.5 million dollars by the NBA, mifgt want to consider selling the team and forgo the ultimate pressure that is curtain to follow.

Words have consequences...

- Los Angeles Times - NBA Commissioner Adam Silver issued sweeping sanctions against Donald Sterling on Tuesday morning in response to controversial remarks about blacks purportedly made by Sterling. Silver said the Clippers owner was banned from any association with the team for life and fined $2.5 million. Silver added that he would urge other owners to force a sale of the team.

Silver said the lifetime ban would stand regardless of whether Sterling was ultimately forced to sell the team he's owned for 33 years. The commissioner said the NBA constitution allowed owners to eject Sterling if three-quarters of the owners voted in favor of such a move and that he would commence the process of expulsion immediately.

“I fully expect to get the support I need from the other NBA owners to remove him,” said Silver, who appeared visibly agitated throughout his remarks.

  1. Is there anything that Rush Limbaugh WON'T weigh in (pun intended) on? There certainly doesn't appear to be.
