New Jersey has now been heard from among the responses being given to NBA owner Donald Sterling’s alleged racist rants.
U.S. Senator and former Newark Mayor Cory Booker told “Good Day New York” that Sterling should not be an NBA owner if the remarks proved to be accurate.
Booker called Sterling’s remarks “Awful.” “There’s a lot of ways to make this gentleman pay for having those views and I believe the right thing for him to do would be, should this prove true, he should not be an NBA owner,” Booker said, according to Politico.
Sterling owns the Los Angeles Clippers of the NBA, and Booker said his comments could hurt the franchise. "The bottom line in America now, whether it's incidents of homophobia or racism or sexism, this hurts,’ Booker said, according to NJ.com. “It's going to hurt your business."
