can we stick to the topic without the political stuff?
Social issues are framed as much by policy as they are by one's personal POV, so tell me how you separate politics from social issues?
Seriously, if you're gonna take the forum titles that literally, we've been remiss by leaving cleaning agents and detergents out of the discussions in the 'Box, and by not talking a/b cocktails or recliners in here
Although I do recall a thread or two about futons some years back.
but what Dave was talking about had nothing to do with the current discussion. Obamacare? Voter Fraud? How does that have anything to do with NBA/Racism/Sterling?
John, it's all interrelated. It speaks to attitudes, perceptions and misperceptions, patterns, and truths vs. myths. Are we only allowed to have one-dimensional discussions here? Must we ignore the layers that are just beneath the obvious? C'mon, loosen up and embrace variety.
Indeed. Most everything, besides photos of cute cats, has a political element. I think in general most people try to separate political and otherwise posts here, most especially since the great purges of the a few years ago (ooh crap, that sounds politicalish doesn't it?)

That may be. Strange that the NAACP has been thinking pretty well of this guy up to now .
Dave, probably because of money. Money seems to change people's minds or make them turn a blind eye.
Donald Sterling donated money for years to the Los Angeles chapter of the NAACP, which honored the Clippers owner with a lifetime achievement award in 2009 and was planning to present him another in May until the controversy broke over his racially insensitive comments that went public over the weekend.
The amount Sterling has given to the L.A. NAACP branch was not revealed at a news conference Monday held by L.A. branch president Leon Jenkins.
My 89 yr old mother told me the NBA ban won't mean a thing to Sterling. At his age, he could drop dead at any moment. Then my 95 yr old father chimes in & says, if that 20 something chickie hasn't killed him with a heart attack yet, nothing will.
