Some Twitter commentary on the racist remarks from LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling. The league has clearly abetted Sterling until now, and it will be interesting to see what response, if any, comes from the NBA top brass at this time. They are more likely to be sorry that Sterling’s comments came to light at such an inconvenient time (playoffs season), rather than that he made them, and holds such beliefs, at all.

*Edit:

By saying the NBA has abetted Sterling, I am referring to the issues raised about his previous actions and statements in the Think Progress article:

"The NBA can’t take away Sterling’s team. But it needs to do something, especially because it has already let Sterling off the hook so many times before."

    He loses his power and influence, though. He’s extracted from the team that he obviously treats like a plantation.
