Oneida Indian Nation Praises NBA for Issuing Lifetime Ban to Los Angeles Clippers Owner Donald Sterling for Racist Remarks

The Oneida Indian Nation and the national Change the Mascot campaign it leads today praised the National Basketball Association (NBA) for issuing a lifetime ban to Los Angeles Clippers team owner Donald Sterling for recent racist remarks.

“In banning Clippers owner Donald Sterling, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and other NBA team owners have taken a courageous stand against racism in professional sports, acknowledging that professional leagues cannot be a platform to promote bigotry,” said Oneida Indian Nation Representative Ray Halbritter. “In taking such appropriate disciplinary action, the NBA has shown leagues like the NFL that they have a moral responsibility to take disciplinary action against people like Dan Snyder, who also continues to proudly promote bigotry with the use of a dictionary-defined racial slur as his team's name.”
