LOS ANGELES (AP) — UCLA says it's turning down $3 million pledged by Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling and will return the $425,000 installment he's already made.

The University of California, Los Angeles announced the move Tuesday, saying Sterling's "divisive and hurtful comments demonstrate that he does not share UCLA's core values."

The NBA on Tuesday banned Sterling for life and fined him $2.5 million for making racist remarks.

UCLA says Sterling recently had pledged the $3 million to support basic kidney research by its Division of Nephrology.

Didn't have a right under the collective bargaining agreement of the National Basketball Association.

So, didn't we once have freedom of speech in this country? Wonder where that right went? He may be stupid but he has the right to be stupid since there is a lot of that going around.
