Donald Sterling and Justin Bieber

What is odd, as my son pointed out to me, is how there was massive uproar in respect of Donald Sterling and his comments but Bieber has not garnered the same measure of vitriol from the same people. I don’t know, part of me feels sorry for him, we all did stupid shit at fifteen but it takes some gall to actively solicit the public acquaintance of a people whose ethnicity he knowingly mocked on camera. I hope that this is something of a learning experience for him. He’s probably not got friends or mentors who could advise him, but I sense that’s a common issue with young men in the public eye, and women too. None of them have those friends who put a hand on their shoulder and just whisper ‘no, don’t do that.’
