    Talk about lousy timing. Lordy.
    There's still a lot we don't know about this story.

    1. The award is apparently to recognize a lifetime of very generous donations to benefit disadvantaged blacks and other racial minorities.
    2. Sterling has been under investigation by the feds for accusations of racial discrimination in housing, etc. as well as being sued by Elgin Baylor for racial discrimination in employment.
    3. The girlfriend is apparently being sued by the ex-wife for stealing upwards of $2 million from the family's funds.

    No one can condone the man's words on their face - they are outrageous - but I'm also concerned about the apparent hit job being conducted, using TMZ, and the rush to have the man tarred and feathered in the village square.

    I'm not entirely sure the NAACP will withdraw the award under those circumstances.

    Interesting.

    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.
    This is probably not what you were concentrating on when you started the OP, but I have to say what a weird relationship they must have. Obviously they don't care about each other at ALL.

    YOu can't post something like that with Sheldons face staring at us. It breaks the illusion.

    If that is the case, why all the furor now?

    Only because he's a little bit white.

    False.

    You should maybe add more words, otherwise you sound as irrelevant as everyone in the sports industry is.

    Yes, yes, everyone is irrelevant. Racism has no impact in the "real world". We heard you. It's not like a dog whistle at this point.

    I've noticed that no one has yet been stating this guy is a republican and attributing his statements to all republicans - which is clearly what would have happened by now if he were republican.

    That combined with this NAACP award make me think he is most likely a democrat.

    Which is the most important aspect of this story.
