The Donald Sterling situation is very interesting. He makes (supposedly) private comments to his girlfriend (who looks just as bad in this case, IMO, as Sterling supposedly does), is accused of being a racist, and is paying the price in the courtroom of public opinion. During his tenure as owner, however, he has hired four black coaches and one black general manager. In other words, his history of hiring minorities is as good, if not better, than many other owners. As the lynch mob continues to gather, count how many times these facts are mentioned.
