Donald Sterling and American Racism

We welcome listener thoughts on the National Basketball Association’s action against Donald Sterling for racial comments the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers made during a recorded conversation. Culture and media critic Sheri Parks joins us, and we’ll hear from Hopkins professor Nathan Connolly, who specializes in racism, capitalism and property rights.
