Racism is a hot topic right now, particularly in the United States where Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling is feeling the backlash of his racist comments in the form of receiving a lifetime ban from the NBA, a $2.5 million fine, and pressure to sell the team.

Wanderlei Silva, who is coaching opposite Chael Sonnen on season three of The Ultimate Fighter Brazil, has been a lightening rod for criticism because of his comments and actions while on and off the set with Sonnen. While some people find his actions unfounded, Silva recently put together a video pointing to Sonnen and many of the comments he’s made about Brazil as racist.

Silva added some commentary of his own following the footage of Sonnen, but does he make a solid case for Sonnen being a racist?

Check out the video for yourself and come to your own conclusions.
