LA Clippers Stage Protest adminstush April 28, 2014 Special, Suss LA Clippers ashamed to wear the uniform! #Racism#Shameful #AreWeInTheFifities? #WhenWillWeAllRealise #OneRaceHumanity #LiveSTUSH Fam is it surprising or even noteworthy that racism exists in the upper echelon of major sports in the US? Should Donald Sterling be removed from his position as owner? The players in the National Basketball Association spoke out Sunday about racist comments attributed to Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling. The Clippers players staged a silent protest. As they warmed up for an NBA playoff game, the players removed their warmup shirts bearing team logos to reveal red T-shirts worn inside out, with the logos hidden. They finished warming up, removed the red shirts and played the game wearing their regular uniforms. The National Basketball Players Association demanded Sterling be barred from all playoff games this season. The players also want an accounting of past accusations of racism against Sterling; an explanation of what kind of discipline might be issued; assurance that the league commissioner will work with the association; and assurance the investigation will be conducted swiftly. And throughout the day, past stars including Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson, even the president of the United States, Barack Obama, condemned Sterling’s statements. Sterling wasn’t there to see the protest or his team lose 118-97 to the Golden State Warriors. He agreed to stay away from the game because of the controversy that heightened Sunday when the website Deadspin released an additional audio recording of a conversation that purports to be Sterling talking with girlfriend V. Stiviano earlier this month.
