Should Donald Sterling's (ex?)-girlfriend be free from criticism? Is she blameless in the whole Donald Sterling "Don't subject me to black people*" rant?
This thread is not about Donald Sterling. Sterling's comments/attitude are reprehensible, no argument, but there are other already-existing threads for that. This thread is about V. Stiviano, the girlfriend.
What's her motivation? Is she doing this solely out of a sense of justice? Or, is she doing this with the long-range goal of a nice payday? What about her being his girlfriend to begin with? Does this possibly suggest a deeper less noble motive? We've seen the pics of him and her. His motivation for being with her is obvious... she's hot. What's her motivation for being with him? Some will defend her with weak defenses or try to feign objectivity by saying "We don't know", but my gut tells me she was attracted to him for one reason... money. For this reason, I suspect her motives. I have nothing to go by but gut feeling, but I suspect that the only reason she ever even said hello to him in the first place was the fact that he's rich... and now she's scheming to get what she can while she can.
Note: Does this question suggest to minimize Sterling's comments and attitude? No, it does not. Attempts to portray it as such will be flat out wrong. Just delving deeper into the situation for curiosity purposes.
