He was afraid being humiliated. Now, who in the world doesn't think him a jerk, or worse?

Does the punishment fit the crime or just feed another round of incredible hypocrisy and self-righteousness?

Why did the NAACP honor him in the past and why were they planning to do so again? Now that's embarrassing!

Bashing him makes a lot of people feel good and superior. If his remarks had been kept private, no one would have cared, but blowing all this up turns him into a spectacle and a public enemy.  

There is no room for rationality. In the spirit of Alice In Wonderland, "first the punishment, and then the trial."

The NBA can now get back to business. No racists allowed, bla, bla!  The players can rake in their millions. Yea, the Commissioner acted, no matter what example was set! Everyone played their appointed roles.

Sterling is our new Salem Witch, lynched on the cross of anti-racism. I can't feel sorry for his pathetic behavior, but no one has taken the high road in this high stakes game of GOTCHA yet.

And no one will.
