What about Bill Maher? He is a part-owner of the Mets -- that is when not calling Sarah Palin the "c" word or Michelle Bachman "a dumb t--t," or when not joking about Palin's son Trig, who has Down syndrome. Should MLB investigate his stand-up for foul language?

Did Magic call for a Clippers boycott when, for years, its owner mistreated Elgin Baylor, stiffed players and twice settled housing discrimination lawsuits? Or when, in 2000, Sports Illustrated named the Clippers the "worst" franchise in North American history?

About racism, consider this. A 2013 Rasmussen poll found that as between blacks, whites and Hispanics, blacks are the most racist -- even according to blacks. Should we screen players and fans for racism before they enter the stadium?

Meanwhile, non-racist media ignore 234 kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls. Once again, we aren't talking about the worst economic "recovery" in 80 years or the broken promises of Obamacare. Scandals like IRS, Benghazi or Fast & Furious have long left the front pages.

Black unemployment went up last month from 12 percent to 12.4 percent. We have sky-high teen unemployment, especially among blacks. National debt is up substantially. Entitlement programs remain on an unsustainable path. Fifty years of welfare state policies have de-stabilized families and created fatherless homes -- all of which exacerbate problems of crime, school dropout rates, under-education and government dependency.

Even President Obama said, "Children who grow up without a father are five times more likely to live in poverty, nine times more likely to drop out of schools and 20 times more likely to end up in prison."

Can black and white victicrats take a day off from being "offended"? Dolts -- whether Bundy or Sterling -- who are incapable of harm, say stupid things. The real issues -- under-education, lack of jobs and irresponsible breeding and parenting -- have nothing to do with Sterling's jealousy and will not be resolved by his public flaying.

Wave a magic wand. Remove racism from the hearts of the Bundys, Sterlings and Zimmermans. The effect on these problems is what? But no, let's talk "income disparity" or "climate change" or that "racism remains alive and well in America."

Let's talk Sterling.
