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

    The reason what Sterling said was so horrible is the simple fact that it is part of a historical racist mindset that does go back to the days of slavery.

    Sterling's words could easily be translated to:
    Blacks are good for working, making you money, being friendly with and even sleeping with. But don't you dare elevate them to the same status as whites.
    That is what troubled the majority of people. And that harkens back to the slave days when slave owners would become friendly with their slaves, some to the point of having children with them, but if ever one of them became too familiar or did it in front of someone else, they would be put in their place. Those scars still exist in the black community so while some might hear it as the ranting of old rich crazy man, others hear it as the haunting of time we are not quite over yet.

    So you're Republican. Which coincidentally people with your political lean tend to vote. Glad we cleared that up.

    I don't care what party Sterling registered for.
    Me neither. But apparently it's important to Republicans to pretend he's a Democrat, even when the facts say otherwise.

    I know who he donated to.
    And who did he donate to and when? Be specific. I want to hear about the $4000-$6000 he donated 20-30 years ago, half of which went to a basketball player.

    Who has he donated to?

    To me, focusing on his politics is only making the matter worse.
    Then why are you focusing on it? Apacherat made a provably false statement. I corrected him. You seem to have a problem with me correcting him with the truth. Why are you so focused on the political party?

    Anyone can register with any political party they choose to but it doesn't mean they are a member of that party in good standing.
    ...so now you're telling people what party they belong to, despite what they have officially claimed?

    Yeah, you've lost. Sterling is a Republican. I don't really care what party affiliation he is, it doesn't really matter to me. But you're wrong when you try to pretend he's anything other than a Republican, based on the facts we have.

    I don't go to basketball games and I don't watch them on TV, but I know that a lot of black people play and are interested in basketball, so I am a little surprised that Mr. Sterling, whose girlfriend is half- black and half-Mexican, would say this.

    It will be interesting to see what the NBA has to say about this.
    It will also be interesting to see how the left reacts in that he is a democrat and heavy $$ doner to the DNC.

    I'm sorry that your prejudices make you believe that.

    It's already happened.

    They ignore that inconvenient truth and say it only matters that he is a registered republican.

    Reminds me of when a few right pundits were talking republicans into registering democrat so they could help control the democrat primary...
