DrSansabeltNoShiatSlacks: What's the problem? He has his NBA plantation. He dates a biracial girl (1/2 black, no less) and he's a jew.


and a Democrat

He probably won't need it anyway.  I hear the Republicans want to team Sterling with that
cattle rancher from Nevada and form a "dream ticket" in 2016.

Arkanaut: Darth_Lukecash: FTFAIt is not known if the recordings have been doctored or altered.

Wow...is ESPN bending over backwards here? Or is it just me?

I think Sterling's lawyer has been trying to insinuate that it's a fake that Sterling's ex-girlfriend released to get back at him.


I'm willing to put down a 10-quid note at Lloyd's to say either him or the ex-girlfriend will go Full Metal Snowden/Manning/Assange and start to release info that the NBA Leadership (along with Stern) isn't exactly NAACP material.

That is normally legally covered covered by the phrase "Allegedly". No, they are really trying to kiss his ass

A Fark Handle: Smeggy Smurf: That's better.  Never forget that just as many people have no idea who is who in NASCAR, not everybody knows who is who in bouncy ball

but racism in nascar wouldn't exactly be news.  that's the standard.  i would assume everyone in nascar is racist, beats their wife/cousin/sister, and loves bass fishing.

/i kid. i kid.


At least in the NBA they can drive to the right.

Remember how the guy is a Democrat and a major donor? The media certainly doesn't.

If he were a Republican it would be in every headline, and it would have had 20 more greenlights here by now.

LOOK KOCH BROTHERS woo hoo

The interesting thing is where did the tape come from and is it legit. It's hilarious to see the internets jury just convict and sentence the guy becasue TMZ and Deadspin said so.

The first rule of being a FARK Independent is the party is mother, the party is father, we love the party we are completely independent of but attack the opposition of at all costs.

That would be so awesome/awful, watching a multi-billion dollar sports empire destroy itself.

Yeah, prolly.  It still boggles my mind that someone who has a problem with black people would be in the professional basketball business though.

srgrobe: Democrat


And that's important why?

Democrats can be just as racist as Republicans so what party Sterling belongs to is irrelevant.

But never more racisty than Republicans

It surprises you that a racist would want to "own" a bunch of physically-gifted black men?
 
2014-04-28 01:21:55 AM
I see the talking point de jour is that Sterling is Democrat. I know you are trying to score one for yor team, but not many Ds are going to defend this fool.
 
2014-04-28 01:38:01 AM
People only talk about a racists political affiliations when he is a Democrat. they leave racist Republicans'political affiliations out of it. This is not fair.

The media has been telling everyone that this isn't the first time this guy has said something "racist" and gotten caught. So why was the NAACP planning to give him the award to begin with?

Nevermind the fact that he's a white dude banging a black chick, which makes him not racist by definition.

Or the fact that as an NBA team owner, he has spent his entire life making profit for black players, which makes him also not racist.

NAACP is not any less racist than Sterling, they seem to understand each other.  If anything, I wouldn't be surprised they changed their minds not because of his comments, but because they found out about his gf.

I have heard NAACP members making statements against bi-racial relationships, and we had an incident in Flint where a white officer was disciplined for trying to ticket the husband of the NAACP branch president for actually breaking the law.  The NAACP is acting more like Malcolm X, and not enough like MLK.  It makes me sad to see this, because it means we aren't getting anywhere.

Turns out the Sterling is a registered Republican in LA County, so all you Fark Independents® can eat a big bag of dicks.
Also, the reason the LA NAACP is giving the guy an award, is because he bought it.
 
2014-04-28 04:33:28 PM
The fact that some partisan coonts made this about Democrats and Republicnas just shows why the politics gab is such a stinking cesspool of fools and hacks.

He owned her. He paid a lot of money for her. Goddamn right he was going to f*ck her. You think slave owners weren't racist? They banged their slaves all the time.
