Atlanta Hawks exec and former NBA Great Dominique Wilkins tells TMZ Sports he’s not surprised by L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling’s racist comments, claiming racism is still a huge problem in the United States.
The Rev. Jesse Jackson is calling for Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and the rest of the LA Clippers to employ some kind of “symbolic expression” to protest the racially charged statements made by the team owner.
TMZ Sports first reported that Sterling told his girlfriend, V. Stiviano, that he doesn't want her bringing black people to his team's basketball games. Read the story here.
