At Yale, John Kerry knocks Donald Sterling

(CNN) - Secretary of State John Kerry slammed Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling in address to graduates at Yale University on Sunday.

"You are graduating today as the most diverse class in Yale's long history," he said. "Or as they call it in the NBA, Donald Sterling's worst nightmare."

Kerry made his remarks as the featured speaker at Yale's Class Day exercises during commencement weekend.

His joke comes after Sterling repeatedly denied he is a racist in an exclusive interview with CNN's "AC 360" last week, despite remarks made in a private conversation with his friend V. Stiviano that were released online.

    Kerry has failed on every critical issue facing the country internationally and is a total embarrassment to the U.S......maybe attacking an 80 old crazy man will make him feel mancho and like one of the "cool kids".

    Isn't it ironic that the person who represents American values abroad has jumped totally on the PC bandwagon waging war against privacy and free speech which are at the heart of liberty, our nations most sacred founding value.

    Right wingers always have an excuse for racist rants free speech, what you say also have consequences he is loosing his team. What have we blacks ever done to white people to deserve this hate?
