    Re: Clippers Owner Donald Sterling Tells Girlfriend: Don't bring Black People to My G

    The old coot didn't even say the N word in his private conversation with a bimbo. I thought this country valued privacy?

    Who knows why he dislikes some blacks. Maybe black heroes like Jesse Jackson & Malcolm X displaying their anti-Semitism and getting away with it still annoys him.

    This just doesn't seem like much of a story given that he's been very philanthropic with blacks, he employs lots of blacks (and pays them well), he didn't say the N word, and this was a private conversation between him & his gold digger. But it makes for good theater, I suppose.

    So what is your point? I'm just trying to understand what you are saying.

    My point is that he perceives the players in that way.

    It must be horrible for them to work for such a guy. I wonder why they didn't protest by simply not playing and telling him to keep the big paychecks he gives them.

    Speaking out against bigotry is always honorable.

    But they really didn't speak out. Why are they still working for this terrible racist? It would have been more honorable to refuse to play at all. The symbolism of inside out shirts makes for great theater, but that's about it.

    If he's a horrible man, then they should all pack up and go elsewhere.

    Huh? Prove that the game will go on?

    Are they boycotting the game to show their owner how horrible he is yet?

    They are not boycotting the game. They are symbolic showing that they are against the owners statements.

    Ah, the old symbolism. Well, that will certainly show him!

    Of course they aren't boycotting the game. The old fella pays them all too much. They'll keep accepting his money, tainted though it may be.
