Such a sad melodrama! This is a rich old man who is very self-centered (the bad hair dye, etc.) and who has been able to purchase his way to acquire anything he desired (young women, etc.). He obviously has no filters and just doesn't get it. About forgiveness, I agree with Charles Barkley when he said he will forgive Mr. Sterling when he stops dragging the NBA through this potentially long, drawn-out clinging onto what will eventually be the loss of his team. This is such a challenging time for everybody to look at themselves and see who they really are and what they truly represent and feel with regard to racism. We say one thing, but where are we, really, when situations like this face us. The dignity of Doc Rivers and Magic Johnson throughout this ordeal is incredibly impressive. The timing is rotten when this team is working so hard to achieve its goals and doing a great job of playing through it. Best wishes to them as well as to the rest of us in our individual evaluation of what is going on.

Forgive him. We all make mistakes.

Yes, forgive him. He is entitled to his opinions and can say what he wants, no matter how foolish or offensive.

One thing is for certain is that it is not wise to this part of the entertainment industry for clear life guidance on moralities. The moral outrage out of this sector of the entertainment industry in response to Mr. Sterling's comments is overdramatic. Sterling said something totally inappropriate and uncalled for, but those comments did not reflect any behavioral racism on his part in his actions for owning and leading an NBA team. Since when did the NBA become the morality police about private actions? If the rest of the league can legally force him out, then that is their prerogative. But whatever negativity stays in the front page news due to this whole drama is largely in part to the NBA's overreactions.

We should forgive him for what he said. But that doesn't mean that we should just move on and let him get off Scott free. He deserves the sanctions that were placed on him for what he said.
