Donald Sterling’s NBA Racism Rant Leads To Call For Universal Human Dignity

Donald-Sterling-and-V-StivianoLA Clippers owner Donald Sterling has been caught on tape engaged in a bizarre racism rant, according to media reports, where he pleads with his mixed-race girlfriend to stop bringing black people to basketball games, including the legendary Magic Johnson.


The internet has erupted in anger and disgust over the remarks, with Snoop Dogg pretty much summing up everybody's feelings over the issue when he posted a video saying, “F— you … you racist piece of s—.”

To me, this extremely offensive, disturbing event can be flipped around into an opportunity to open up a discussion for the need for universal human dignity — a concept that means every human being of every age, race, sex, religion, gender preference and culture of origin is recognized as a conscious individual with inherent worth.

And if you look across the landscape of our modern society, the NBA isn't the only place where people are being treated with a lack of human dignity… it's uncomfortably common across agriculture, food, medicine, finance, education, media and of course in the military industrial complex, as described in this article.

Denouncing the dehumanization of valuable souls

The apparent racism of Donald Sterling is really a view that devalues human beings in the NBA because of their skin color. It's a reflection of the same kind of dehumanizing viewpoints held, believe it or not, by the federal government itself in many cases such as:


• The dehumanizing of raw milk farmers and the government-led armed raids on raw milk operations.

• The dehumanizing of women, both black and white, who attempt to grow vegetable gardens in their own front yards and yet face arrest and criminal charges.

• The dehumanizing of parents who are forced into mandatory vaccinations of their children even when other disease prevention strategies are safer and more effective.

• The dehumanizing of African-American breast cancer patients who are exploited for medical profits while made to suffer from a disease which can be prevented with a simple, low-cost supplement known as vitamin D. (This fact is never told to black women by the medical establishment.)

• The exploitation of children by Apple Computer in Chinese labor camps where workers are essentially imprisoned to churn out high-profit electronics for the consuming public in America.

• The dehumanizing attacks against both gays and Christians — yes, BOTH are subjected to outrageous attacks from time to time — by those who practice intolerance. Today, being a Christian makes you subject to more ridicule and condemnation than being a “homosexual” in the 1990's, as the term was commonly used then.

    Racism is often associated with white people. I find minorities to be the most offensive while white people defend them. If a man makes a comment to someone and it is racial, that is on them, not me. I don’t think every time a person makes a remark that they should be shamed publicly. Jesus taught…reproof in private, praise in public…lets live it. Quit hounding people for this. Should we do the same shame thing to blacks and Mexicans? How would they handle being globally shamed every time they made a racial comment? There would be no time for news if we did
