    The NBA announced today that it has suspended Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling for life and fined $2.5 million after he was recorded making racist comments.
    NBA Commissioner Adam Silver made the announcement at a news conference in New York.
    The decision comes after days of public outrage directed at Sterling after an audio recording surfaced over the weekend that allegedly contained his voice saying racist comments to his then-girlfriend Vanessa Stiviano

    I thought this was a free country. There is not a business man in this country that owns a large company that does not have racist thoughts about minorities etc. Should we take all of there businesses away from them?

    The irony is the whole NBA power structure thinks the same, they've just got to appear to be making a stand. They're the new plantation masters.

    PC Police won again. Obviously this isnt over. Im sure theyll establish a position in the NBA and it will.be ainistered by Al Sharpton. Another cushy job for that fat pig. Players will be banned from using certain words and Sterling Im sure will have to go to some court apointed "be nice" meeting, supervised by Al Sharpton as well. :coffee:

    everyone. EVERYONE is racist. even if you odnt use the words, everyone has thoughts. he has the right to say what he wants. sponsers have the right to drop him, but how does the NBA have the right to ban him? you can bet if he said "dont bring whites to my games" not a peep would be said

    I don't really care, it's just concerning when someone voicing an opinion in a private conversation is penalized more than violent criminals. Rapists are fine, but a guy who made racist comments isn't welcome. Our thoughts are now more important than actions. We are living in the bizarro world.

    I thought he was being nice to the whore. She could still fuck and feed the enwurds just don't post pictures and bring them to games. Sounds like a good deal, could be worse.

    Hypocrite. I'd love to see where you've segregated yourself from blacks.
