It seems racism is alive and well. Or is it?
Of course I am, as is everyone, referring to the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers basketball team, Donald Sterling and his abhorrent racist tirade that his plasticized mistress/girlfriend recorded and then released to the public.
I’ve even heard a conspiracy theory floating around that some other party was interested in purchasing the team and this was a set up, and that the league may actually be able to force Sterling to sell his team.That seems a little far-fetched but not as far-fetched as the theory I’ve concocted – but you’ll have to read on for that one.
Welcome to the “Sports Reich”, where league officials, in concert with politicians and racial “bomb throwers” can force a private citizen to part with his property.
Now, if racism today is oh so prevalent as we have been made to believe, why the outrage? If it were indeed commonplace – would this not be just another ho-hum whitey incident?
But his statements were/are not run-of-the-mill, are they? They are not “commonplace”. In fact, most of us (conservatives) have “evolved” to be relatively colorblind.
From what’s come out about Sterling, it seems that the sports community and certainly the basketball community have known this guy was, as he still is today, a dirtbag 30 years ago.
Yet the Los Angeles chapter of the NAALCP (National Association for the Advancement of Liberal Colored People) was set to give Sterling a lifetime achievement award. You don’t think they knew who this guy was long ago?
Darn right they did. But until their hand was forced – money evidently trumps racism – as long as it’s just quiet racism.
Now let’s juxtapose the nationally hysterical outrage of the Sterling incident to new information pertaining to Benghazi.
At the same time Sterling is garnering all this useless media attention, the truth about Benghazi is finally being brought to light and the evidence is proving that we were indeed right all along.
Of course the Benghazi massacre was never about the video. It was always a cover-up, about politics and protecting our saintly president prior to the election. This situation is beyond despicable and the Sterling incident should pale in comparison.
Yet I don’t hear the outrage from the media. After all, they were lied to about Benghazi also.
