Yeah, this is escalating quickly.

Jeez. If I heard a recording of a guy telling his hot girlfriend "you can fark DoctorCal, just don't bring him to Clippers' games", I'd be elated.

One look at that dude creeped me right out.  I wouldn't want to be anywhere near him no matter what he says.

Does that mean that Mr. Johnson is the real racist?

Stop the presses! Some people don't like other people. Oh my god!

Get used to it, people. There are 7 billion plus humans in the world and we're never going to merge into one giant love fest. People waste too much time trying to vilify those who don't share their utopian fantasies. Move along.

By the way, I hate dogs.

I'm sure that Faux News will defend this guy any minute now by releasing an unedited version of the audio which makes it clear that Sterling said "flack," not "black."

Racists exist, therefore we shouldn't try to do anything about it.

Got it!

I'll never go to a Clippers game too, but mainly because LA is pretty far south of me and when I do find myself in southern CA, "going to a basketball game" is the last idea that comes to mind.

Now that ESPN has picked up on the story...which is surprising because I figured they'd deflect the story to save their golden goose of shiat.

ESPN, quit trying to make the NBA happen.

Shiat just stopped being polite and started getting real.

I enjoy that ESPN is acting if this is a surprise. This is a guy that has lost multiple racial discrimination lawsuits. It's common knowledge he is a racist kook, but ESPN/SI has to carry that water so it can still get access.

I hope this fires up the Clippers, they win the championship, then they deny the handing of the trophy to the owner moment (or is that just in the NFL?) and flip him the bird. Entire time, and Doc, and Magic comes out of nowhere with the behind-the-back no-look bounce-bird, and this all gets posted on instagram.

Well he's always been a racist this changes nothing, he will still be rich and racist even after he sells the team even more so after he's sold the team.

What does that have to do with Donald Sterling being a racist?

You do know that America is demonstrably less racist than it used to be, right? And that racists are not as vocal as they used to be? And that racism continues to go down? And that when people condemn racists for saying racist things, it often produces results?

Sorry. Are we brown people just being too uppity and standing up for ourselves? Why do we always have to take the passive position and just pretend like this is ok if we ignore it? The only way we ever got change was fighting for it, and making sure this ugly truth about America was out in the open.

You wanna be rich in America? Great. But we are finally sending a message that those with influence and power are not above repercussions. Escpecially on race. Which if you hadn't noticed, is still filled with a lot of white racist farks who have a lot of money and power. The civil rights movement isn't over just because you once read about it in a history book, you lazy ass.

Please explain your "thinking" on this...because I seriously don't understand how it works.

Are you really so lazy that you can't judge people on an individual basis?  I mean, why judge people not for what they've done but for the amount of melanin in their skin?

I'm seriously asking.

Well, that's refreshingly open racism right there.
 
2014-04-26 07:54:23 PM  
While I understand in the presented context it seemed racist -at times-, I'd still prefer to know the full story rather than supplied evidence against the owner.

"Because you're white, that's why..."
"Why are you being racist?"
"I love white people."
"But why are you being racist?  Do you know that I'm white?"

vs

"Why can't I be a spokesperson for the NAACP?"
"Because you're white, that's why..."
"Why are you being racist?"
"I love white people."
"But why are you being racist?  Do you know that I'm white?"

 That, and the conversation sounded edited to hell.  Regardless, there will be massive political/social fallout, so the job is done.  Relationship is over so she did as much damage as she could.

Speaking of racism, can we expect you to get upset on behalf of every non-black player in the NBA, which according to Charles Barkley in his response to Sterling, is 'a black league'?

That must have been a huge shock to the NAACP's first president and one of its founders Moorfield Storey:

Was his comment accurate? No. Was it malicious? No. Was Sterling's comment malicious? Yes.

I Don't get it. If they weren't being paid, they would presumably need to find another job to support themselves. I agree with you that over 90% of NBA players of any race wouldn't play on a volunteer basis. 99% probably.
