All the other 29 owners have to do is take a moment from frantically issuing their self-serving condemnations of Sterling's racist comments and look in the mirror. And for a complete group portrait of Sterling's enablers, they should invite former commissioner David Stern to sit front and center.

Abraham Lincoln was much more racist than Donald
Sterling and/or Paula Deen.
Shouldn't we tear down the Lincoln Memorial and everything
that has anything to do with him?
Remove him from all history books?
Take down his picture from all schools.
You think Donald Sterling and Paula Deen are racists?
Read on, oh uninformed one !
Any comment, Pointe Verda Beach Fl ?
Now, be nice !

Abraham Lincoln Quote

I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in anyway the social and political equality of the white and black races that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race. I say upon this occasion I do not perceive that because the white man is to have the superior position the negro should be denied everything.

Abraham Lincoln
(1809-1865) 16th US President

Fourth Debate with Stephen A. Douglas at Charleston, Illinois, September 18, 1858
(The Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln edited by Roy P. Basler, Volume III, pp. 145-146.)
