Donald Sterling, 80, the now- banished owner of the Los Angeles Clippers, reminds me of every guy I’ve heard say, “I can’t be racist. I’ve even dated black women.”
Sterling, who is white, can be heard on recordings, released by the gossip website TMZ and confirmed by the NBA, making racist comments to his mixed-race lady friend. This episode shows how some people can have ample cross-cultural contacts and still sound like a bigot.
