I agree with Maher. It was a private conversation between Sterling and one of his mistresses; he’s an asshole but that isn’t illegal.

Uh yeah, nobody said it was illegal. The NBA is not the government.

do you agree racism causes immense harm to tens, if not hundreds of millions of Americans?

If the NBA decides that racism is bad for business and because of it Sterling has to go, how is this not a perfect example of the ‘free market’ in action that should bring tears of joy to even the most fanatical Libertarian True Believer?

I agree with KAJ. This guy was a well known racist yet he participated in this sport with no objections. That’s the fucking travesty here. A country of pants pissing cowards afraid to speak truth to power.

i agree that Sterling did nothing illegal, but the NBA is also working well inside their legal rights to protect their brand.

I understand his point but the fact of the matter is the NBA is a private organization who deemed Sterling’s words harmful to their product. That’s what people don’t get about “free speech.” You can say whatever the hell you want and not worry about jail but if you think you can say whatever the hell you want and not expect a backlash, you’re barking up the wrong tree.

But good post (@thecommodore)! I’ll remember this the next time someone mistakes Bill Maher for a liberal

Sterling is essentially a franchisee of the NBA. The league has 30 franchises. As with any franchisee, he agrees to certain terms as an owner. If he violates those terms, he can be removed according to the franchise agreement and the NBA’s constitution.

This is nothing like the government forcing him to sell his other big holding, Donald Sterling Properties. Unless he couldn’t pay his bills, the govt. would never step into that situation, just as it wouldn’t step into the internal workings of the NBA.
