The Silver Platter
April 30th, 2014
As far as I’m concerned there isn’t punishment enough for racists like Donald Sterling. Glad to see NBA commissioner Adam Silver render as harsh a penalty as he could. Now it’s up to the owners and the court system to do the rest. I leave you with a quote from the movie 42 that sums up my feelings on all of this.
Branch Rickey: You think God likes baseball, Herb?
Herb Pennock: What – ? What the hell is that supposed to mean?
Branch Rickey: It means someday you’re gonna meet God, and when he inquires as to why you didn’t take the field against Robinson in Philadelphia, and you answer that it’s because he was a Negro, it may not be a sufficient reply!
