Everyone from members of the media to current and former NBA players and even President Obama have spoken about L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling’s racist rant (and subsequent ban from the NBA).

Notorious prankster Jimmy Kimmel went to find out what “real clippers”—not members of the basketball team—thought of the whole controversy, so he traveled to L.A.’s Legends Barbershop to talk with some of the barbers and its customers as he got his own haircut.

They had plenty of thoughts about him, side chicks, and even “racism rehab.”

Not only did the rant by Sterling, who has a long history of racism, not surprise anyone at Legends, they mostly figured that a large number of people think like him when they’re in private.

Go in for the haircut, stay for the conversation and good-natured riffing.
