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

    Donald Sterling, the owner of the NBA's Los Angeles Clippers, told his girlfriend not to post pictures on Instagram of herself with black people and not to bring black people to his basketball games, according to an audio recording posted by TMZ.

    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.

    This is between him and his girlfriend, far as I'm concerned.

    Well that sounds like a great thing to say when a lot or most of your (and the league's) talent and fanbase is of another race or ethnicity.

    Time to boycott the NBA obviously it is very racist! Do not support it by buying the products! Do not watch the games live or on the TV.

    Stop the racism! I knew this 15 years ago when i stopped watching it!

    Lol ! Does that include the players ???
    ( Honestly some of the players SHOULDN'T show up )

    The NBA has a pretty solid solution to keeping out the Riff Raff, whatever the Color of their skin.

    Like Disneyland, decent seats ( Tickets ) are damn expensive !

    I thought the endless Bundy threads might have temporarily satisfied the Left's insatiable quest to play "FIND A WHITE RACIST!" Apparently not.

    Important to keep in mind that there are just as many racists of every nationality in the United States and around the world.

    .
    Well, this is just awful.
    I'm not sure TMZ is a particularly reliable/ethical source, though.
    However, this is a good reason for all NBA fans to shift their allegiance to MY team.
    Go Warriors!!
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    Exactly, which makes me wonder why any owner would ever make a comment like this. The man has shot himself in the foot.

    Most of his employees are black (at least on the roster). At least I think that would be so. If not, maybe that's why the Clippers suck.
