Reverse Sodom and Gomorrah

Before God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, he gave Abraham a chance to convince Him to spare the city.
Abraham thinks there a few righteous in the area, so they should not be swept up with the wicked.
How many?
They started talking about 50, and got down to 10. If there were 10 righteous people there, God would spare the city.
The next chapter shows there weren't even 10 righteous there, leading to the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.
The University of Missouri swept the up the few wicked with the many righteous.
A handful of incidents brought out the destruction of the president's career.
No pleading about prior good works could save him.
No number was small enough to avert the wrath.
If there's only one incident of racism anywhere, all must be destroyed.
