It would be kind of fascist(probably not the right word) if sterling was punished for voicing his opinions in private.
I remember when my parents found out my brother was dating a black girl. The things that were said in my house were more violent and worse then what sterling did. A lot of oldschool immigrant parents(asian and latino) don't want their kid marrying black people. Do you think it fair for them to lose their job because of something they say to their kid in private?
