FROM THIS EPISODE

Donald Sterling is a product of Los Angeles. Raised in Boyle Heights, he made a real estate fortune on LA's Westside. Since he brought the Clippers home to Los Angeles 30 years ago, his so-called "plantation mentality" has been well known. Now, the city seems united in saying, "Enough is enough." But it took the Commissioner of the National Basketball Association to say it first. Is three decades of tolerating racism a product of LA, too? Also, forget your computer. Board games are back in style.

They're under investigation for the way they've handled complaints of sexual abuse on campus. We hear how a group of victims has come out of the shadows to reach the White House and Capitol Hill.

How Did Donald Sterling Last So Long? 19 MIN

There seems to be a consensus in Los Angeles that Clippers owner Donald Sterling is finally getting what he richly deserves: a ban from association with his own professional basketball team, and fellow team owners may demand that he sell.  LA Times columnist Steve Lopez calls the city's unified condemnation of racism a "bright moment" after a long time of darkness.
