Donald Sterling is losing his plantation folks!

It just goes to show that you don’t have to be smart to be rich. The question is, how smart do you have to be? Here we are in 2014, not 1864, and yet some people still think like Donald Sterling when it comes to the question of race.


We’ve elected an African-American President – twice – but there are many who still think we are living 150 years ago.  []



“Though the colored man is no longer subject to barter and sale, he is surrounded by an adverse settlement which fetters all his movements. In his downward course he meets with no resistance, but his course upward is resented and resisted at every step of his progress.


If he comes in ignorance, rags and wretchedness he conforms to the popular belief of his character, and in that character he is welcome; but if he shall come as a gentleman, a scholar and a statesman, he is hailed as a contradiction to the national faith concerning his race, and his coming is resented as impudence.” [Frederick Douglass, September 25 1883]
