Why doesn’t the ACLU help defend Sterling?

Can someone explain this to me, please? America is a country with freedom of speech guaranteed by the First Amendment of the Constitution.

The American Civil Liberties Union defends a person’s right to free speech, even when what the individual is saying makes the ACLU members’ blood boil.

Donald Sterling made some statements that the vast majority of Americans probably disagree with. While hurtful for black Americans to hear, in the long run, Sterling’s bottom line is impacted the most if he doesn’t want blacks at Clippers games and they do not attend and buy tickets.

Why isn’t the ACLU all over this?
