Earlier in the year Utah banned a fan for life for saying racist things directed at Russell Westbrook.

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 a bullshit double standard, but ones many Americans seem to be okay with.
