I won’t defend Los Angeles Clippers’ owner, Donald Sterling, for his racial attitudes and beliefs. But I will defend his right to hold them. One’s thoughts are his own private property. And until a jack-booted squad of Thought Police kick in your door and arrest you for unsanctioned thoughts, I’ll keep my tinfoil hat in the closet where it belongs. But I digress.
The owner of the Clippers basketball team is under siege for making racist remarks in private to his alleged mistress. All hell is breaking loose as the entire world apparently demanded he divest himself of the team and be banished from basketball for eternity. I can’t wait to see the eBay reserve auction.
But in a supposedly free country, aren’t you afforded the prerogative to not like someone? For whatever reason? Apparently not, in this racially-hypersensitive world.
