Jessie Jackson & Keith Olbermann Call For L.A. Clippers Players To Boycott Over Donald Sterling's Racist Comments. Dominique Wilkins, Meek Mill Speak Out [Video/Audio]

Video And Audio After The Jump

L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling has created a firestorm that isn't likely to die down soon. Sterling told his mixed race girlfriend V. Stiviano, to stop being seen in public with black people. He even forbid her from bringing Magic Johnson to Clippers games and forbid her from posting photos of blacks on her Instagram.

Reactions to the comments leaked by TMZ in an audiotape they obtained has been swift and understandably harsh.

Keith Olbermann

Television host Keith Olbermann responded via Twitter by saying Clippers player should boycott until the NBA takes action against Sterling.

"Repeating: time for players to step up. Refuse to play till NBA moves against this racist j****** . NBA can't defend him," Olbermann wrote. "I was banned by the for criticism of the front office - in 1986. This made me the envy of every other LA sports media person."

Meek Mill also spoke out on Twitter.

Civil rights leader Jesse Jackson demanded that something be done by the NBA and the Clippers players.

"This is a racially insulting, demeaning statement. Because we have dignity, we have an insult level,: Jackson told TMZ. "The first issue is what will the NBA do about it. He's an NBA owner. Does he violate an ethic of conduct by by the NBA and it;s owners? They must respond and respond quickly. Second, the player's association must respond. Because you have players in the union who work for Mr. Srerling. Just as the players showed sensitivity to the Trayvon Martin situation with some symbolic expression. In the case of the Miami Heat they wore their hoodies. The players for the Clippers should show some sign if indignation."

Donald Sterling

Former NBA All-Star and current Atlanta Vice President of Basketball, Dominique Wilkins told TMZ that Sterling's comments prove racism is still alive in 2014.

As a VP for the Hawks it is appalling to wake up to this story. It is in no way anything that I know MY NBA at ANY level to promote, condone or harbor behind closed doors or openly. As a black man living in the South, this is not something that is a surprise. Racism is prevalent, still a problem and something that can NOT be taken lightly in ANY context! As a former Clipper, I feel for the community of LA. It is a melting pot of culture and ALL races. For Clipper fans, staff and players, I do hope this is dealt with swiftly and justly. It is just totally disappointing.

Meek Mill is a great civil rights leader for the new generation. He can shout rap a whole song about it and go triple fake wood.

1st of all how can people say f jesse j he was apart of the movement that helped blacks people of color in general so shut up....2nd the issue is not about the players its about donald sterling he's the one who said those remarks no one else...i believe that chris paul, blake griffin, jamal crawford, deandre jordan should still play like they want that championship thats why they play basketball to win right....yes there should be reprocussions but it needs to be done the right way not all ghetto and stuff we all the guys an idiot.....he couldnt even stay on topic in the conversation almost like he has dementia or something...
