WE NEED A RACISM OFFSET CREDIT PROGRAM

See also

Donald Sterling, owner of the Los Angeles Clippers, got in trouble when his apparently high-priced girlfriend recorded a private argument and made it public, showing Sterling to be a rather vulgar racist, which hadn't been in doubt before. What she did is probably illegal. What he did is not, but he will face financial or at least social consequences.

There ought to be a system whereby people like Sterling, at least people of means, could contribute to society while protecting themselves: a racism offset credit program. Just as people can donate money to the Carbon Fund, receiving rewards (just like rebates!) and alleviating guilt (just like indulgences!), you could donate money to the NAACP (as Sterling has in the past) and get social credits. Maybe Sterling didn't donate enough so he couldn't get off this time. The system needs tweaking.
