After the left crucified Cliven Bundy for statements he made which they perceived to be racist, they now have one of their own in the spotlight for far worse racial statements he made which were recorded.
Donald Sterling, owner of the Los Angeles Clippers, has been exposed via audio recording pleading with his girlfriend not to associate with black people, and if she just can’t help herself, not to publicize it.
Sterling has only ever donated to Democratic politicians, however he made no donations to our first black President. In what turned out to be an immense hypocrisy, his girlfriend is half black and half Hispanic.
Some of Sterling’s most deplorable comments in the audio recording included:
“It bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast that you’re associating with black people. Do you have to?”
“You can sleep with [black people]. You can bring them in, you can do whatever you want. The little I ask you is not to promote it on that … and not to bring them to my games.”
”I’m just saying, in your lousy f******* Instagrams, you don’t have to have yourself with, walking with black people.”
“…Don’t put him [Magic] on an Instagram for the world to have to see so they have to call me. And don’t bring him to my games.”

After Sterling’s comments were leaked, high profile celebrities have been coming out in droves to protest the racist remarks. Magic Johnson told TMZ, ”It’s a shame that Donald Sterling feels that way about African-Americans.” He also vowed not to attend a Clippers game as long as Sterling is their owner and said that he has effectively given the NBA a “black eye”. He may have given the NBA a black eye, but he certainly did more damage to his own reputation.
Even Obama took time out of his diplomatic Malaysian trip to comment on Sterling, calling him “ignorant”.
What’s your take on Donald Sterling’s racist remarks? Has he effectively committed career suicide? Will you be boycotting the L.A. Clippers like Magic Johnson? Sound off in the comments section!
