Barack Obama Blasts Donald Sterling For ‘Ignorant’ Racist Rant

“When ignorant folks want to advertise their ignorance, you don’t really have to do anything. You just let them talk. That’s what happened here.” the POTUS carefully explained during his press conference.
Well said, Mr. President!
Obama Wants Adam Silver & The NBA To Respond Appropriately
Now that President Obama has responded, he also wants everyone to know that he has faith in NBA commissioner Adam Silver and other NBA officials.
During the press conference, Obama stated that he strongly believes that Adam and the NBA will work together to respond to Donald’s racist beliefs in the appropriate manner.
“I have confidence that the NBC commissioner Adam Silver, a good man, will address this,” the president told a room full of reporters. “Obviously, the NBA is a league that is beloved by fans all over the country. It’s got an awful lot of African-American players. It’s steeped in African-American culture, and I suspect the NBA is going to be deeply concerned in resolving this.”
Hopefully, the President is right. Even though the NBA has responded to Donald’s racist rant, it has yet to act just yet.
