Kareem telling it like it is. Makes me even more proud that he's been my favorite player ever.

Wow!  That's probably the best thing written by anyone about this whole situation.  Awesome stuff.

Yup, Kareem hit the nail on the head.  Why now?  Why not before?    

The answer is that we live in a society now where words are much worse than actions.

He was quoted in one of those lawsuits as saying "black tenants stink and attract vermin" and "Hispanics just smoke,drink and hang around the building." Much more vile wording than telling his hooker not to publicly advertise her dalliances with black guys because it embarrassed him at the old boys yacht club.

According to Rush Limbaugh, this was all an elaborate scheme by Magic to buy the Clippers all along and he had the whore set Sterling up.  But Rush is batshit crazy so there you go.

Official players thus far:

Magic and his Anschutz pals;

Oprah and the guy from Java and a couple other billionaires;

In the interim, minimum value has now exceeded One Billion. Yeah, Sterling will end up hurting from all this.

What was brilliant about it? It ends in an tired bashing of Obama that has nothing to do with Sterling.

Or it was the sound of your post being confusing, badly written and having no point (other than "leave old racists alone!"), so sorry for bringing it up.

The double standard. Oh, and this was written by a black man.

Yes, he flies off the rails towards the end into Fox News hysteria and it discredits him.  Kareem Abdul Jabbar brought up the NSA issue much more effectively without sounding like a typical partisan jackass.  This guy just wanted to rush through the Donald Sterling scandal to get to the point that he REALLY wanted to make.  Not well written.
