Bravo to the L.A. Clippers Team for Their Reaction to Owner's Statements: The Five Minute Response

Following the allegations that L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling made racist statements, telling others not to bring blacks to his games, the team has made a bold statement against such outright stupidity. Before game 4, taking to the center court of Oracle Arena in Oakland, California, they stripped off their shooting shirts with the team logo emblazoned on them and left them in the middle of the court. Afterwards, they commenced warm ups, nationally televised, with inside-out gear that barely showed the team logo at all. Not a word was spoken by the players, but their statement was eloquent.

Bravo! This is no time to allow racism to go unchallenged. Well done, Clippers teammates. You guys have class, even if the team owner does not.

And that's the five minute response.
