Predictably relatively little of this has been said about Donald Sterling, of the Los Angeles Clippers. Sterling bears the dubious honor of being The Bigot Everyone Can Agree On; the very few, halfhearted defenses of Sterling out there, like Kareem Abdul-Jabbars, are mainly asking whether our unseemly joy over finding someone we can all hate together serves as a dangerous distraction from problems with racism thats more subtle than a crazy old white dude outright telling his mistress not to associate with black people.

Whoa, this guy has problems.
