Re "Clippers owner banned for life", (Page A1, April 30): I in no way condone what Donald Sterling said. However, we must understand and accept that African-Americans are not the only target of racism, and Caucasians are not the only perpetrators.

There are people of every race, ethnicity and religion who demonstrate racism, bigotry and prejudice toward other races, ethnicities, and religions. I'm Caucasian and I have experienced it from other races. I'm sure sometime in my life I have done it to another person unknowingly. We need to learn to accept each other despite our differences.
