In this video, Dr Boyce Watkins talks about the debacle of Donald Sterling and the Los Angeles Clippers. Watkins says that black people ask for this kind of treatment because of their unwillingness to challenge racists when they show themselves to be biased in the first place. There is also a pattern shown by Sterling that represents the consistent disrespect received by African Americans in the workplace and outside of it.
