"Donald Sterling's callous remarks regarding African Americans are a painful reminder that, 60 years after the landmark Supreme Court decision in Brown vs. Board of Education, and 50 years after the enactment of the Civil Rights Act, there is still work to be done," said AJC Executive Director David Harris. "And that someone so deeply involved in the NBA, which exemplifies the racial tapestry of our country, would think this way is all the more striking."

AJC applauds NBA Commissioner Adam Silver for ordering an immediate investigation into Sterling's remarks.
