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

    I saw a pic of his gf. She's pretty hot, and young. My first thought was that she's only with him for his money, so it's a convenient relationship for both of them. He gets the hot young gf, she gets the status of his money. Screams dysfunction regardless which angle you view it.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    My prediction:
    • People will scream bloody murder
    • NBA will hand down some symbolic, but meaningless, punishment
    • More people will scream bloody murder
    • Issue will fade away
    • Games will go on as usual
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    But as you know, public and professional pressure can be used to such an extent that it would render it potentially difficult for the organization to "move forward" or however else you may want to frame it. The property rights exist, but that does not mean that the freedom of speech won't cut it to where that person is free from pressure or extreme levels of criticism for not stepping aside.

    I believe I read that in his comments, he even stated he doesn't care if she sleep with them (referring to blacks) , just don't be public about it. So, not much of a relationship I am sure.

    -- "You can sleep with [black people]. You can bring them in, you can do whatever you want. The little I ask you is not to promote it on that ... and not to bring them to my games." (5:15)
    I kind of wonder if it wasn't so much as a racsit comment, as it was something more along the lines of you are portrayed as my GF, don't do things in public to cause a problem with that. I really am just speculating, though.

    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Whoa, I think you need to back up a little bit.

    I think we can all acknowledge that there are racist everywhere. I don't think this is some leftist conspiracy to find a white racist though. I think this is just an instance where if you are a public figure, and you say something racist, it gets heard.

    It's the difference between "Hey, my friend dave said something racist" and a well-known person in the public eye says it.

    That being said, I don't think the NBA should be boycotted or anything, that's way over the top of a reaction. But I will admit that this guy seems like a terrible guy to me.

    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.
    I am not surprised. He is a racist. Many slave owners had sex with black women and used black peoples body and souls to accumulate wealth great wealth.

    He is just a modern day version of that. I hope the team walks out on him or he gets kicked out of the NBA.

    If he is having increased hormones, as someone in this thread suggested as a possibility, he may not even be able to "get it up", and the public eye-candy-on-his-arm image is all he really cares about.
