Donald T. Sterling should be applauded for waking the American consciousness. It is a fact that African Americans are the largest consumer group in America, but what is never mentioned is the fact that African Americans are also the largest producer group. With the combination of the resources on the African continent, Black people are the world’s largest resource.
As in Africa, African Americans do not have control of their destiny. So what makes Mark Cuban the owner of the Dallas Mavericks any different from Donald T. Sterling or the treatment Micheal Jordan received at the hands of Abe Pollin and Jerry Reinsdorf. African Americans are still making billions for characters who see them lesser than dogs. | Ogbeni Ayotunde
