Reaction to the racist comments attributed to Clippers owner Donald Sterling extended well beyond the confines of the basketball world on Saturday, as President Barack Obama was asked about the subject during a press conference in Malaysia. Obama, himself an avid fan of the NBA and the sport in general, conveyed both his condemnation of Sterling’s comments and faith in the league to address the issue.

Obama’s full comments on the subject were as follows:

The owner is reported to have said some incredibly offensive racist statements that were published. I don’t think I have to interpret those statements for you; they kind of speak for themselves. When people — when ignorant folks want to advertise their ignorance you don’t really have to do anything, you just let them talk. And that’s what happened here.

I have confidence that NBA commissioner Adam Silver — a good man — will address this. Obviously, the NBA is a league that is beloved by fans all across the country. It’s got an awful lot of African-American players. It’s steeped in African-American culture. And I suspect that the NBA is going to be deeply concerned in resolving this.

I will make just one larger commment about this. The United States continues to wrestle with the legacy of race, slavery and segregation. That’s still there — the vestiges of discrimination. We’ve made enormous strides, but you’re going to continue to see this percolate up every so often. And I think that we just have to be clear and steady in denouncing it, teaching our children differently, but also remaining hopeful that part of why some statements like this stand out so much is because there has been this shift in how we view ourselves.

We have Russia on the brink of starting WW111. The bonehead speaker of the house taking the piss out of his own party over immigration (wonder what the powers that be are blackmailing him on) and the only headline that seems to matter is the President of America vilifying a private citizen over some fucking stupid racist remark. Now Al the conman Sharpton wants to rally in the streets. WTF is happening to this country?

A man of position and wealth like Sterling knows FULL WELL the impact those words can and will have on our current environment. A most inopportune (convenient)? time to make a statement like that.

Just like Rumsfeld when he put down Obama. Rumsfeld isn't stupid, and for him to make a statement like that was also very suspicious.

'Sauron, realizing he could not defeat the Númenóreans with military strength, surrendered. Clad in a beautiful incarnation, he came to Ar-Pharazôn's camp to swear fealty to the king, and allowed himself to be taken as a prisoner to Númenor.
This was part of his plan to corrupt Númenórean civilization from inside.'

With all due respect... there is hardly ANYONE who listens to O anymore anyway. The HUGE population segment of the US understands how false he is, how insidiously he consistently lies about "virtually" anything concerning Truth and how immoral & anti-God/Jesus Christ he is.

Those who are confused by this comment will largely remain lost with the inevitable fall into eternal darkness of your/their spiritual judgement.

It wasn't a public statement, it was a private communication to his girlfriend.

If the NBA does ANYTHING to him over this, he should sue the NBA for $billions. If the black NBA players don't want to play for him, they are free to quit consistent with the terms of their contracts.
