According to TMZ, Al Sharpton is outraged at the comments made by Clippers owner Donald Sterling and is demanding he lose his team.
“No one should be allowed to own a team if they have in fact engaged in this kind of racial language,” Sharpton said.
He also let everyone know that he and his supporters will be taking action if something isn’t done.
“We are prepared at National Action Network to rally in front of the NBA headquarters if this matter is not immediately dealt with.”
Sharpton’s comments stem from the owner of the L.A. Clippers allegedly making racially charged comments to his girlfriend, saying to not bring black people to the basketball games. However the Clippers organization has released a statement saying that the audio clip may have been doctored by a woman who’s currently involved in a lawsuit with Sterling.
Other black leaders have come out in protest was well, including Jessie Jackson and Obama, and condemned the remarks that were allegedly made. Sterling had been involved with racial controversies in the past, including a lawsuit from one of his players and being sued over housing discrimination which was eventually settled out of court.
Do you think he should be fired, or should more facts come out before such a drastic action is taken?
