A pair of Golden State Warriors fans have won the Internet.
As part of the outcry against Donald Sterling's racists comments that leaked online over the weekend, these two gentlemen attended the Warriors-Clippers game in Oakland on Sunday afternoon.
And their signs say it all, don't they?
Sterling, of course, has been caught on taped berating girlfriend V. Stiviano because she posted photos to Instagram of herself and Magic Johnson.
The 80-year old owner ordered Stiviano not to be seen in public with any African-Americans and definitely not to bring any to his team's games. Hence, the inspiration behind the above signage.
At 2 p.m. EST today, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver will hold a press conference in which he announced some kind of punishment against Sterling.
He's expected to issue a hefty fine against Sterling and likely suspend the owner for some duration of time. At the very least.
A number of high-profile celebrities, meanwhile, have spoken out against Donald Sterling, who has a history of racial discrimination lawsuits and incidents.
Here is a look at what many stars have said:
If I was a Clipper fan, I wouldnât be one anymore. Itâs that simple. But if I was a Clipper player, a current Clipper player, you wouldnât see me on the court anymore in that uniform.Lil Wayne

When ignorant folks want to advertise their ignorance, you don't really have to do anything. You just let them talkâ¦ We've made enormous strides, but you're going to continue to see this percolate up every so often.Barack Obama

It's a shame that Donald Sterling feels that way about African-Americans. He has a team full of amazing African-American basketball players that are working to bring a championship to Clippers fans. The Clippers also have a strong minority fan base.Magic Johnson

Shaquille O'Neal: Everyone has their thoughts. When your opinions and thoughts become public knowledge, the question is, now what? Another question is: will his team shut down on him and take his remarks personally?...I think the league should take a long hard look on whether this guy should continue to be an owner or not.
