After listening to the video I felt sorry for Sterling; but then I read a full report of his history on Huff Post and I realized that Sterling may have become involved with his girlfriend Stiviano, to throw off the public opinion about him. He may have thought that he was using her to clean up his image and then it backfired.
Sterling is a classic representative of those wealthy millionaires who would have given all their millions to keep America from moving forward. If anyone is concerned about the prevelance of these views in America, they simply need to remember that they lost.

One of the greatest impediments to the anti-integration movement, is the fact that we are so integrated.
In 2011 KKK leader, Jeff Hall was shot by his own son. This 10 year old child recognized that the real enemy was not those innocent people in his neighborhood, or his school. They were not people who he may have been friends with, but the real enemy was the man who hated and intended to hurt them. Just like Stiviano, this young boy felt the need to destroy the bad guy. His methods were probably due to a lack of maturity, but the need for good to prevail against evil is written into our genetic code.
As a nation we need to find common ground to move forward. Know that our greatest allies may not look like us while our enemies may.
We need to start recognizing these brave “white” people who helped win this war and understand that it is not over.
I had an experience a long time ago which really brings the feeling of watching this exhibit home. I was out of my house for long periods of time, when a family member who initially came to visit decided never to leave. During my long absences this family member who was much older than I, became very comfortable; so comfortable that she seemed annoyed when I came home. I felt that I was a visitor in her house and because of her age and my tragic custom of respect for elders, I came home always trying to stay out of her way. Tried to lock my self in my room as much as I could, but then one day I came home and my bedroom had been redecorated.
When people BEGIN to encroach upon your space they reveal a lack of respect for you. They will not be comfortable with some of what you have, even when they have more than you do. It is as if you are not worthy to have anything.
I watched the students as they examined the 3000 year old pictures still with brown paint and the hair still braided but could not identify that these people from Africa were Africans. Many wonder what is the big deal, but what if Africans invaded London, find a way into the monarchy and begin generations later to pose as Queen Elizabeth or one of the royals from this century. There is something quite indiscreet about this. We have to learn to be concerned for our own history, because this is where the future begins to take shape.
For the mass population which does not follow the discoveries of scientists, you may wonder what’s the big deal, but this was my response:
That is the problem with modern science, the “evidence” or the interpretation of it is fluid. There is an ever randomly changing narrative. One which seems to weave its way into the subconscious arguments of race, cultural dominance and politics. It is constantly seeking and evolutionary advantage, a “fitness” or adaptive pro, against the back drop of an archaic big-boned inferior African con. The problem with this narrative, if it is the story “we choose to tell ourselves,” is that there are many gaps in the story. 40,000 ago we were able to survive because of interbreeding with Neanderthals, but the story of evolutionary superiority doesn’t unfold for a full 35,000 years. Until then, cave dwellings, cannibalism, vandalism of advanced civilizations to the point of collapse, illiteracy, unsanitary conditions, plagues and an absence of basic living structures. That is obviously the story these scientists have chosen to ignore. It is quite easy to send us into neolithic, and paleolithic eras away from the very recent past; but the real fitness advantage was a gruesome disregard for order and any moral establishment.
Interesting how history seems to recycle itself and if you wait long enough it will.
As it was said half a century ago: America can be conquered from within.
About the time of homo habilis our ancestors evolved a large brain that required cooling.
selection pressures for relatively hairless skin and an abundunce of heat dissipating sweat glands.
Bigger brains require even more cooling. A marked increase in the number of sweat glands and a reduction in body hair could have provided that, Nina G.Jablonski
The birth of our genus has long been a conundrum for paleoanthropologists, to say the least. Only a few scattered and fragmentary fossils older than two million years have been argued to belong to the genus. Then, around 1.8 million years ago, not one but two or possibly even three Homo species appear, mostly in East Africa. The smaller brained, more primitive ones are called Homo habilis, or “handy man,” a name given by Louis Leakey and colleagues in 1964 to specimens from Olduvai Gorge because of their association with the first crude stone tools. Some researchers group a few H. habilis specimens into a separate species, Homo rudolfensis. Then there is Homo erectus (the early African forms are sometimes called Homo ergaster)—larger brained, bigger bodied, more advanced, yet contemporaneous with little H. habilis. http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2011/08/malapa-fossils/fischman-text
