Don Sterling, owner of the Los Angeles Clippers, has revealed he is a racist bigot. This isn’t a one-time thing, revealed by a gold-digging gal pal who publicized private conservations in which she set him up, but a pattern of bigotry going back many years. He was known as a racist back in 2006, was sued by tenants in 2003 for discriminating against blacks and Hispanics, and was even sued by the DOJ for refusing to rent to black and hispanic renters. Was he a Democrat because he has only ever donated to Democrats or a Republican because he more recently registered as one? We don’t know because we can’t see into his heart. But what is revealed of his heart by his words is not pretty, and it doesn’t have a party.
It’s bigotry, plain and simple.
And that’s ugly as sin.
