    One interesting Financial Juneteenth remark that Sterling made that also raised eyebrows was his
    comparison between blacks and Jews. Sterling says that while successful Jews often reach back to
    help their own to climb the ladder, many wealthy blacks do not do the same.

    “Jews, when they get successful, they will help their people,” Sterling said. “Some of the African-
    Americans, they don’t want to help anyone.”

    Donald Sterling is a jerk, but does he have a point?

    Would it have made you feel better if bill cosby would've
    said that?

    How'bout t.d. jakes? ...No?

    Maybe if it was ra un nefer amen,
    would that suffice?

    Just because the source of a statement is distasteful, does not mean that the statement should automatically be ignored. The opposite is true too.

    I've seen programs in place created by successful blacks with the explicit purpose to help others in the black community succeed as they have. Therefor, I would say Sterling is incorrect.

    Even a broken clock is right twice a day. If we were to eschew everything uttered or created by racists we might find overselves in dire straits

    Programs, of course.
