My first reaction when I heard about Donald Sterling’s racist comments was – well this appears to be a private conversation between him and his girlfriend; however when I listened to the recorded conversation in its entirety I understood why everyone was so upset.

As someone who is of African descent myself I found that the manner in which Sterling spoke about black people was both insulting and condescending. Here is a man who is still living in the plantation era; one who still believe that whites are superior to blacks and because of this superiority white and blacks cannot publicly be friends.

It is interesting to note that Sterling does not see himself as being racist. In his mind history has branded blacks as minorities and it will remain that way forever; they are not to be associated with in public. Sterling is an educated man but clearly education is no cure for stupidity.

Skin color does not define a man. It does not make you any better than the other person. We are all made up the same way there is no difference! Sadly there are people like Sterling still around and while we cannot change the way they feel we can stand together and refuse to support racism or anyone who is racist.
