It’s good to know the National Basketball Association players and Adam Silver, the commissioner who oversees the league, are condemning the racist comments of NBA team owner Donald Sterling.

But what about the millions in Maine and this country who have the same attitudes but aren’t caught on tape, or think these nasty ideas but don’t say them?

And what about millions more who want equality but benefit from discrimination against people of color? Shouldn’t we also condemn them and the advantages they derive?
