Tirade - Sterling
I recently told a friend in England that racism is a subject that is best never to mention out here. The traditions are so deep that it's almost impossible to state an opinion without getting into very hot water. But I have a couple of questions regarding the recent revelation that the owners of the Clippers basketball team is a racist. How come the NAACP awarded him a a lifetime distinction in 2009, and was about to repeat it again this year? As he was known to hold these views going back many years, how come they have surfaced now? And is the UCLA medical center so replete with money that they can afford to turn away $3 million dollars from Sterling which he was donating to their causes? Just asking!
