I was listening to radio in LA today, regarding Sterling's gifts to charity, everyone knows about it, because he frequently takes out large ads in the papers to let everyone know. Most likely a tax dodge, he can give all he wants, but evidently, it didn't change his heart.
Ich habe schon Pferde vor der Apotheke kotzen sehen.
Some recent celebrities who've fallen on the hatchet had their lives just about completely ruined over typical rants. I'm not so sure that money can buy happiness when these creatures make the gaffes that became public.
The guy is obviously racist, but so are most of the people criticizing him. Hell, the way racism is defined today, I'd be considered a racist as well since I neglected to vote for Obama.
It's always fascinating to see the racist comments that get overlooked when the subject is a black individual. In response to the Donald Sterling incident, Charles Barkley said "....We can't have an NBA owner discriminating against a league — we're a black league." Maybe so, but what do you think would happen to someone like Wayne Gretzky if he theoretically made a comment stating that the NHL is a white league. Statistically, that statement would be more far more accurate than Barkley's claim. But you can be sure that Gretzky would be labeled a racist and expected to attend racial sensitivity classes.
We live in a world that black people are typically excused from almost all racist comments...whether they are in public or private. However, if you're white (and double whammy if you're rich too)....you are held responsible for things you say in private if someone records it.
What a terrible person for paying his players millions and giving bonuses of cars and houses for their extra effort. What a monster!
I think you are really stretching this one way too thin.
Sterling above all else appears to have a female problem. She evidently recorded several of their conversations. What would be the motives of someone doing that? Do you think they are good? Apparently her attorneys will not allow the release of the other tapes. hmmmmmm.
The Problem is Democrats want everyone to believe that all racist are Conservatives and Republicans.
This guys a Democrat BTW.
And this story is getting the air time for one reason, so the left can perpetuate the false narrative that our whole society is innately racist and the only way to fit it is to vote for Democrats.
So to fix racism vote for the party that has a highly racist past ??
