To laugh or to be insulted? That is the question. I’m just going to get off my high horse, have a good chuckle and leave the societal implications to someone else. It’s a lot easier to laugh at Donald Sterling’s ignorance anyway. Keep in mind, this was the same owner who attended Clippers games to heckle his own (former) player Baron Davis – who he signed to a $60M contract – and had to pay damn near $3M for a discrimination lawsuit at several properties he owns in the Los Angeles area. Crazier than the headline may actually be the blurb underneath it though. One thousand underprivileged kids will get in free. That’s fine and all, but how in the hell are they supposed to prove they are “underprivileged”? Are the parents supposed to present check stubs or something?
To The Don’s credit, February is the shortest month of the year. So maybe, in his Jim Crow mind, March 2nd is really February 30th in disguise. Yeah, that has to be it.
