    Default Donald Sterling banned from the NBA

    Source: http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/events...icial_response

    Quote:

    The controversy caused several of the team’s sponsors to leave[13], including insurance agency State Farm and used car company CarMax. The NBA has also barred Sterling from coming to any playoff games this season. On April 29th, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver announced that Sterling has been permanently banned from the league for life and fined a $2.5 million for the racist remarks. Denouncing Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling’s racist comments in strong language, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver announced the league has banned Sterling for life and fined him $2.5 million. In addition to the penalties, the Commissioner also stated that he will “urge the board of governors to force a sale of the team and will do everything in my power to ensure that happens.”


    Didnt you think racism was over, like disco? But its just keeps getting a reboot.

    Eh, the comment itself seems to me to be more stemmed from jealous boyfriend-ism than racism, but I haven't seen the video or tape, and I don't know the guy personally. So for all I know he hates Black people because he's jealous of them and certain stereotypes about them that would make his mistress walk away from him, never to return.

    Good. The NBA will be that much better without him.

    I don't think people appreciate how fast things have changed. This guy is 80. He grew up before the civil rights movement even really started. Segregation was in full force and Southern Democrats controlled enough of congress that they managed to block laws against lynchings which were not prosecuted well into this guy's adulthood.

    Maybe a lot of people from his time have changed their opinions on race. But I suspect it's rather just that they're intimidated.

    The NBA is disproportional black by an overwhelming majority. Wouldn't that in and of itself be evidence of racism? Either the hiring managers are discriminating (racism), or black people are superior at basketball (racism).

    There isn't anyway to legally prevent freedom of speech here. You could create laws that prevent employers from terminating and businesses from banning people based on their beliefs. You still couldn't prevent sponsors from pulling or customers from boycotting. Unless such laws were able to bring an end to the "I disagree with you, therefore you should lose your job" ideology.

    He also got a lifetime achievement award from the NAACP.

    Donald Sterling's opinion on race isn't much different than that of your typical black studies professor. He believes that his girlfriend being around black men will hurt her reputation. A black studies professor will tell you that black men are routinely followed around in stores, pulled over by cops arbitrarily, and discriminated against by hiring managers based on their name (i.e. black men have a bad reputation).

    Sterling claims he doesn't care if she privately hangs out with or has sex with black men, he just doesn't want the public to know about it. Suppose you believe that black men are good drivers, but you believe that cops are more likely to pull over black men. It would be in your best interest to avoid black drivers when carpooling, so long as it isn't obvious that you are discriminating. The same logic would apply to Sterling.

    The only disagreement here is whether or not one's self interests come before racial equality.
