As the NBA prepares to address the racist comments allegedly made by Donald Sterling, a former NBA superstar says we have to use this incident to work to eliminate racism.
In a Time Magazine article, Kareem Abdul Jabbar writes that we can’t be “content to punish Sterling and go back to sleep.”
But for now, he says fans and players should have confidence that the league will do the right thing:

Karrem wrote “In our quest for social justice, we shouldn’t lose sight that racism is the true enemy.” He went on to say Sterling is “just another jerk with more money than brains.”
