Racist NBA Team Owner Banned for Life

America's National Basketball Association (NBA) has decided to ban Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling for life, after a recording of racist comments he made about black people was released earlier this week.

Those comments provoked a firestorm of outrage, as a string of sponsors either suspended or withdrew their support for the team altogether, and public figures including US President Barack Obama joined the chorus of condemnations.
