Re "Clippers owner banned for life", (Page A1, April 30): I have been amazed to hear some trying to defend Donald Sterling by means of First Amendment rights and private property domain, i.e., the Clippers.

Let's not let the content get lost in the means of discovery or other legal minutiae. This is not a legal issue. It is a social and moral one that involves character representation of a powerful entity: the NBA.

The man's face should be nowhere near a basketball court, an NBA logo or the people he has tried to repress over the years. In the end, instead of keeping them down, he has only made them stronger via defense of his century-old ignorance.
