Al Sharpton: Remove Sterling or ‘We March’

By: Pam Wright - April 28, 2014

Reverend Al Sharpton is threatening to protest the NBA if L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling is not dealt with immediately for his racist comments.

“No one should be allowed to own a team if they have in fact engaged in this kind of racial language,” said the civil rights activist to TMZ Sports.

Sharpton, president of the National Action Network, is calling for the league to make an investigation into Sterling immediately and said, “We are prepared at National Action Network to rally in front of the NBA headquarters if this matter is not immediately dealt with.”

Sterling is under heavy fire after berating his girlfriend for hanging out with black people in public and telling her not to bring black people to his games after she posted a photo of herself with Magic Johnson on her Instagram. The comments came in a recording taped by his girlfriend.

“I’m totally outraged that they are stalling on this,” Sharpton said in a telephone interview to Bloomberg. “It does not take an investigation. Either he is the man on the tape or not. And he has not said unequivocally that he is not.”

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said in a statement that everyone should be allowed due process.

“All members of the NBA family should be afforded due process and a fair opportunity to present their side of any controversy. The core of the investigation is understanding whether the tape is authentic, interviewing Mr. Sterling and interviewing the woman as well and understanding the context in which it was recorded,” said Silver in the statement.

An outpouring of disgust over Sterling’s comments is rampant on social media.

    Say what? Niggers from coast to coast are up in arms about this, while not a single solitary soul mentions the increasing number of decent civilized law abiding white people who are murdered at the hands of these animals! I say enough is enough! Time for a race war and let’s cleanse America once and for all by permanently exterminating these cockroaches!

      Would that include a White man who walked up to a Black teen and shot in in front of his mother? Would that include a White man who shot a Black women through his door when she knocked on it or another White man who shot into a car full of young Black men. Why don’t you come to a Black neighborhood with your bs. and have that talk with Black men
