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

    This whole thing is so stupid.

    There's nothing new here folks. Sterling has been doing this for 30 years on multiple occasions, and yet that didn't stop black players from signing there, or black coaches or executives for playing there. Doc Rivers knew all about Sterling's history, as did Chris Paul and the others. There is literally nothing noteworthy about this compared to multiple other racist rants this guy has gone on over the past three decades.

    But make no mistake, Sterling isn't one iota different than Sharpton or Jackson or dozens others, and they go unchecked and uncalled.

    Sterling has been an absolute embarrassment to the league on a variety of fronts for a long, long time. It's just the media and most folks who care nothing about basketball suddenly found a new cause to yank out that trusty race/victim card.

    I haven't opened a page of Playboy for a few decades... Maybe they are no better than the worse out there...



    Years ago Penthouse used to have some fine babes.

    If you mean he has been having a series of mistresses for 30 years I might agree.

    Oh I don't think you should try and make this about folks who don't care about basketball, fact is that folks who don't care much about basketball have this brought to the fore and are naturally repelled by it isn't playing any card... more like reaching for a barf bag...

    Rumors about his racism I can see, BUT until the recording it was a he said- he said thing. There appears to be one judgement against him for preferring Korean tenants in a building he owns but I doubt many folks knew of that gem. That was 2003, hardly three decades ago.

    Elgin Baylor's claims in 2011 were part of a wrongful termination lawsuit Mr. Baylor lost. No recording, no witness, no workie my right wing friend. Not 30 years ago.

    Now however there is no benefit of the doubt. Now the rumors have weight. Now there is a clear and indefensible utterance.

    Odd how he didn't want blacks in his apt building but did want one in his bed.

    Rich folks seem to get the benefit where less well off folks don't... affluenza anyone???

    No, he's uttered racist comments for years, not to mention multiple cases of sexual discrimination, scandals, etc.

    And not only does he like black women in his bed, his real name is Tokowitz. Go figure that out.

    This guy is a disgusting mess. Always has been.

    Wasn't that a settlement where it was cheap[er for him to settle than pay lawyers for a long drawn out suit?

    In cases like these, he wold have never recovered lawyer fees and time if he won.

    Yep. It never even made it to court.

    The courts ruled unanimous not to take the cases. He claimed he wasn't being paid enough, but look at how much better the Clippers did after he left. Looks like he felt like pay should be for attendance rather than by performance.

    I disagree. Did you listen to the whole tape, where she is race baiting him?

    Is there any actual evidence of this, or is it another case where it is cheaper to settle?

    Or...

    Could it be that rich people are often the targets of the judicial gambling game, where plaintiffs come up with stories to be awarded settlements.

    It doesn't pay to make up stories against people who don't have money to settle with, right?

    Being affluent is a curse as well you know.

    Yes.

    He's Jewish and changed his name because he knows about racism first hand. If you listen with an unbiased ear, it is clear he speaks of perception, but doesn't speak as a racist.

    Did you listen to the whole thing, or just the snippets the media plays?
