This is not the end of racism as we know it, but the lifetime ban imposed Tuesday on Clippers owner Donald Sterling by NBA commissioner Adam Silver was a good day for Clippers players, their coaching staff, their fans, the NBA and for anyone in general who despises racism.
Make no mistake, this was a stand-up-and-take-notice ruling. It will make other racists think twice about running their ugly and disgusting mouths. Way to go, Mr. Silver, you knocked it out of the park. Way out.
