    Do you know why they were giving him that award? Right around the time when he settled a suit for discriminating against Hispanics in rental housing, he made a big donation, which judging from the timing was basically "Look, I'm not really racist" PR.

    It's amazing that the right wants to defend this guy...seriously, it amazes the crap out of me. You're not racist, so you should be happy about him paying the price. I guess when trying to say "Look he's a Democrat" didn't work....

    Maybe he thought his girlfriend was sleeping with Magic Johnson and bringing the AIDS to him.

    I have to wonder why the heavy fine and suspension this time as opposed to before.
    Because major sponsors have sent a clear message...

    Nobody was deeply hurt. That's just ridiculous.

    2.5 million dollar fine? Not so sure about that one.
    The question is, what will be done with that money?

    They were giving him the award for a second time. The NAACP liked his money. A lot. Sheer hypocrisy. Now they're thumping their chests too. Pathetic, and very sad.

    They remind me of the Better Business Bureau...total sham, legalized racketeering.

    OK, let's take a little inventory.

    FACT: The girlfriend was with Magic Johnson and posted it on instagram, which set Sterling off on his rant.

    FACT: She made the tape of that conversation public.

    Then this: Report: Magic Johnson wants to buy the Clippers from Donald Sterling | ProBasketballTalk

    Is this a coordinated effort between Magic Johnson and the girlfriend to take over the team?
