President Barack Obama has joined in the blasting of L.A Clippers owner Donald Sterling over his racist remarks, calling him an ignorant man who just displayed his ignorance to the public.
Obama was speaking during a news conference in Malaysia when the topic quickly shifted to Sterling’s remarks.
‘When ignorant folks want to advertise their ignorance, you don’t really have to do anything,’ Obama said. ‘You just let them talk. That’s what happened here.’
Obama, who labelled Sterling’s comments as ‘incredibly offensive,’ went on to add that Sterling’s racist comments is an example of how ‘the United States continues to wrestle with the legacy of race and slavery and segregation.’
