The fallout continues, and higher education, nor medical research, is safe. Today UCLA returned $425,000 from Donald Sterling's "charitable foundation" and terminated an agreement that would've seen $3 million over seven years. The money was intended for kidney research, though we think if you had kidney problems you probably wouldn't care where the money is coming from.
This news followed an ad that was posted in Sunday's LA Times that had a "Thank You," to a much younger looking Donald Sterling, from the UCLA Department of Nephrology. While it appeared to be a badly timed announcement, UCLA claimed that Sterling paid for the ad himself (link below). This was perhaps certainly a phony PR tactic of his own until this whole "decades of racism" thing blew over.
Spoiler alert: It has not.
