    While the guys comments were not smart, Sharpton's seemed even worse. Telling the NBA to take the franchise away from the guy? Say something someone disagrees with and you just have your property taken? Ridiculous.

    Actually the NBA does have that right. It is a private business and his actions in this case will hurt the product as you see here. The NBA owns the rights to who gets to play in their league and he will certainly get a heavy fine and maybe be forced to sell the team. You have no right to being a member of the NBA.

    When you create a working atmosphere completely antagonistic and unsupporting toward your talent and your fan base, you can bet your butt people are clamoring for him to be gone.

    Sterling has not exactly been the best, or most stable owner in the NBA, I wouldn't doubt he said this.

    On a slightly related note, I drove over some old furniture today to the thrift store, and in the car in front of me was Phoenix Suns head coach Jeff Hornacek unloading his crap. Pretty cool and totally unexpected...

    Very unfortunate, considering that his girlfriend is Mexican and black. He must not have much experience dating.

    It really isn't though. Comments of this nature stemming from the owner of a major sports franchise will quite obviously have greater implications than that.

    So, because racism exists throughout various nationalities and various parts of the world, criticizing examples of blatant racism in the United States is somehow off limits?

    Throughout the past month, there was a white supremacist who shot up three individuals outside a Jewish center, a rancher who tried to tell the world that African-Americans may have been better off under slavery, and an owner of a professional basketball team who went on a racist tirade.

    How about instead of making this political (the "left's insatiable quest to play the "find a white racist""), people just agree that it is wrong and they should be called out on it?

    Actually, I think that my point is much more helpful and productive than yours. Certainly much more trending toward healing.

    I don't go to basketball games and I don't watch them on TV, but I know that a lot of black people play and are interested in basketball, so I am a little surprised that Mr. Sterling, whose girlfriend is half- black and half-Mexican, would say this.

    It will be interesting to see what the NBA has to say about this.
    Having seen the pic of Sterling in the article, I'm left to conclude that the man is a little hormonally imbalanced considering his advanced stage of pregnancy.

    One can only assume the girlfriend is in it for the money.
