The huge response and outrage from the public and the media after learning of the racist remarks made by L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling has caught the attention of the NBA. It seems they are investigating the issue.
“The remarks heard on the recording are disturbing and offensive, but at this time we have no further information,” NBA executive vice president of communication Mike Bass said. He also said the league is conducting a “full investigation.”
They need to get on it. Magic Johnson has already made a public declaration that he won’t be attending any games and I’m inclined to follow him!
Civil Rights Leader Jesse Jackson has called for the Clippers to boycott, while other prominent African Americans have taken strong stances against Sterling’s comments as well. Well-known rap artist Snoop Dogg posted a profanity-laced video on his Instagram account condemning Sterling.
