Clippers' Donald Sterling Criticized For Black History Month Ad, Giveaway
Published March 2, 2011
WELL INTENTIONED? ESPN's J.A. Adande said, “Giving poor kids tickets to a game in March? What does that have to do with a month that was designed to celebrate the cultural and scientific achievements of African Americans in February?” Dallas Morning News' Tim Cowlishaw: “I’m going to buy the Clippers trying to make any connection at all. This is a franchise that’s been irrelevant forever, and now that everybody’s talking about them with their highlights and Blake Griffin, they’re saying: ‘Hey, we kind of missed Black History Month. Let’s catch up. Let’s throw it in March if not February’” (“Around The Horn,” ESPN, 3/1).
