Was Sterling just used for media circus? Alex Jones thinks so
‘On Monday, former FBI informant Al Sharpton was interviewed by TMZ. He said if Donald Sterling was not punished for making politically incorrect comments in a wiretapped telephone conversation with a duplicitous girlfriend, Sharpton would call for an advertising boycott of the NBA.
‘A few hours later, NBA commissioner Adam Silver announced he had banned Sterling for life from the franchise and fined him $2.5 million.

‘A study published on April 22 (and currently under review) looked at how likely faculty were to respond to a request to meet with a student to informally discuss potential research opportunities—a scenario picked as a proxy for the many informal events that could boost an academic career and which fall outside institutions’ formal checks and balances. They found — overwhelmingly—that professors of all groups were more likely to respond to white men than women and black, Hispanic, Indian or Chinese students. Academics at private universities and in subjects that pay more on average were the most unresponsive…’
