|Me at L.A. Clippers Christmas Party
Whatever penalty Silver comes it up, it will pale in comparison to the long-term damage Sterling has cast upon his team. His players didn’t waste time letting their displeasure be known. Clippers point guard, Chris Paul, who also happens to be the President of the NBA Players Association, told a reporter the team considered boycotting Game Four of their playoff series with Golden State. Instead, they piled up their warm-ups at center court and had their shirts inside out so that the Clippers logo was not visible. Players on the bench wore black wrist and headbands similar to the protest at the Olympics in Mexico City.
As a mother of bi-racial children, it is distressing that this racist attitude still exists. If more parents raised their children like I was raised, the world would be a much better place... treating everyone with respect and only judging people based on their actions. I can only hope our new generation will be different and the old bigots will die off sooner rather than later.
