Financial Juneteenth | Tre Baker explains how black people can own the Clippers and stop whining about Donald Sterling

by Tre Baker


Is Donald Sterling racist?  Yes.  Now what?  Fine him?  The team makes $15 million a year for him.  I doubt a $2.5 million fine will really hurt his feelings all that much.  This is deeper than punishing one man for the way he feels about a group of people.  Racism is more than one person not liking another person because of the color of her skin.  That’s plain old prejudice or bigotry.  Racism is bigotry with the power to do something about it.  That’s why people like Donald Sterling are so dangerous.  Because when they don’t like somebody or a group of people, they actually have the resources and power to affect their lives (e.g. housing and employment discrimination).  You can dislike me all you want, but when your hate interferes with my community’s well-being then we have a problem.

    i believe we should forgive mr. sterling and pray that he learn to love and appreciate the beauty in diversity.

    The Great Jim Brown suggested the same idea plus other idea’s on a nationalize television broadcast with prominent sports figures some years ago. That being said, a prominent female athelete on the panel jumped Mr. Brown accusing him of trying to tell Black Atheletes what to do with their money, which was nothing of the sort, same idea.

    So, Mr. Tre Baker, maybe you and Mr. Brown can talk about this concept and renew this strategy. Problem is, like when Mr. Brown brung the idea up, will the Pro Athelets follow or think like they did when Mr. Brown proposed it.
