First, Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy wondered aloud if African-Americans would be "better off as slaves." Then, Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling scolded a woman for posting photos with NBA great Magic Johnson and "associating with black people." In response, state Rep. David Lifferth tweeted, "We should have known Don Sterling was a racist when he gave money to National Association for Advancement of Colored People."
On Thursday at 12:15 p.m., Ogden NAACP president Joseph Nicholas, Saundra Stokes of the Inclusion Center and Pastor Corey J. Hodges join Jennifer Napier-Pearce to talk about racism 50 years after the passage of the Civil Rights Act.
