Simply put, An Open Letter to All Regarding Donald Sterling is a 112 page must-read, thought-provoking audiobook, and one that should inspire a great deal of debate!
Author Bryant T. Jordan examines and breaks down, not only the exact words of Donald Sterling as recorded by V. Stiviano in the infamous TMZ and Deadspin recordings, but those of NBA celebrities such as Shaquille O'Neal, Magic Johnson, and Isiah Thomas. Jordan also examines the mass public's reaction to such thought-to-be-private words and even explores NBA Commissioner Adam Silver's public condemnation of Mr. Sterling's words and the subsequent punishment handed down to Sterling, and whether or not such a punishment truly fit the crime.
From quoting Martin Luther King to Tupac Shakur (aka PAC) to Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Bryant T. Jordan raises important questions such as:
Did the TMZ and Deadspin recordings really prove Sterling was a Hitler-esque racist or merely that he was an upset Sugar Daddy?
Did the media leave out important information that would have painted Sterling in a different light, in favor or creating ratings nirvana?
Did Sterling deserve a lifetime ban for uttering private words?
Are politically incorrect words worthy of a far worse punishment than actual criminal actions like assault, rape, and even murder?
