A lifetime ban for admittedly horrific racism, but only a year for actual physical contact, by someone who should know better? My guess is that if the guy hadn't been a part owner of the team, he'd be banned from NBA games for life.

It's not just Americans, but it works that way in many countries. The Haves vs the Have Nots. It's human nature, really.
