donald sterling is racist
I mean, this is the same guy who said black people smell and attract vermin and ended up paying the biggest housing discrimination settlement ever. So I can't really say I'm surprised.
The strange part about this whole story that's going unreported is that STERLING'S GIRLFRIEND (then-girlfriend, actually) IS BLACK. Definitely not saying that this makes him not racist, it's just really bizarre that he's dating a black girl (her name is V. Stiviano)...and then telling her not to broadcast that she associates with black people. Also, she's, like, 24.
If you scrape the bottom of the barrel of any race or group, you'll find racists. The fact that people went after him on here for his being Jewish and insinuating that's how Jewish people are is an embarrassment to the education system. When you pit a minority group against.a minority group, the only people that lose are minorities.
Being outraged at the situation is correct, warranted, and needed. But saying "The Jews are racist" (paraphrasing) IS racist. Genius. I'm sure we can be more constructive than that.
This is very sad, but Sterling doesn't have it all. How can you be racist, but date a latino/black girl at the same time?
This old man is just very confused... Sad and pathetic. What a bigot.
The same reason slave masters consistently knocked up slaves. (Something that my family has traced in our own ancestory.) Its the hypersexualized, exotic, wild, savage imagery that society has only continued to advertise en mass. Its probably a continuation of his absolute abhorance of being around black people or even being thought to be personally connected to those he deems unworthy, aka, un&$#%#&@!able, while still making bank on their effort and hard work.
Seriously, &$#%#&@! this guy. &$#%#&@! this guy. And honestly, I would, and I expect any one else, to lambast any racist comment they hear, anywhere. Just letting comments like this go by without anyone telling them how horrible and stupid they are is the same as saying, "Its ok, tell me more." Apathy is acceptance.
The NAACP is a shilljob now.
NAACP pretty much always was. It was created by Jews including Sigmond Freud's Illuminati nephew, propaganda master Edward Burnays. And then for years and years it was run by Jews. The idea was to promote themselves, hiding behind MLK, who was also handled and promoted by Jews until his Drum Major speech.
Now Jews are the wealthiest economic group in the country, and blacks are still the lowest. But Jewish Hollywood makes some good gangster rap music to boost profits from drugs and private prisons.
MLK blown away what else do I have to say. Now NAACP was set to give Sterling a big prize, eh? l
Fun fact: Before Rahm Emanuel was Obama's handler and then mayor of privatizing 3rd world Chicago, and his brother Ari became the top agent in Hollywood, they used to march with MLK with their Zionist Irgun ethnic cleansing terrorist parents.
Why were Jewish supremacist terrorists marching with MLK? Because it was good for the ...
Some racists will have one or two none white friends, thinking that person isn't the same and different from his/her race. Being likely a acttractive in her 20's made it easier to look pass her skin color.
I had to read through a lot of racial BS in this thread just to find anything basketball related regarding the clippers.
Anyways....I have a theory. I think this will unite the team. The coach and guys that actually play will use it for motivation. This will make them angry and they'll play with a much needed mean-streak. They are winning this championship for Donald Sterling. I doubt any of them even talk to him.
Agree or disagree? I just don't think this makes them play worse.
The irony of the whole situation is that his girlfriend is half black and half Mexican.
..I thought. Some of these comments are very thought provoking and I'm happy to have the opportunity to read them. I don't want the Clippers to play. In my opinion, making a positive stand against racism would be a much bigger accomplishment than beating the Warriors. The Clippers would be taking 2 steps backward by for fitting the series but would be leaping 10 steps forward by standing up for what is just. Imagine the impact it would have on the world if these professional athletes decided that equality is worth more than money and entertainment. Until someone big enough to take an unbiased yet positive stance against racism does so, issues like these will continue to occur. I am a black man who has love and respect for all other races.
That whole conversation just makes Sterling completely insane. Blatant racist remarks aside, he doesn't even sound like he's got the capacity to run an NBA team at this point, its like he can't string consistent thoughts together. I think its fair to say just a suspension / fine would not be enough in the eyes of anyone associating with the NBA at the moment and people will only be happy when he is no longer part of the league.The Larry Bird comment from his girlfriend though? PAAARRR
Rumours about Sterling's unpleasant racial views have been an open secret for years, now it has really blown up. Lets first say that comments about Sterling being Jewish have no part to play in this investigation, we all know that lots of major businesses are run or were founded by Jewish people and I believe Adam Silver himself is jewish.
The problem here is that an owner has made comments that are directly offensive to an all time great player plus the majority of his players, coaching staff,fans and any reasonable person regardless of race. The pressure is growing on Donald Sterling from within the NBA dressing rooms, fans, media, the key could be what view do the other owners have as they effectively have Adam Silver answer to them. A lot of spotlight has also fallen on MJ as he is certainly the most famous team owner and again unfairly as he is a black american. The key will be what does Adam Silver think he can do and what will he do and how will other owners act. There are some very influential and high profile NBA owners who could well almost have to take sides.
Plus with all the media interest and comments by leading public figures like Rev Jackson, how long before this gets mentioned in one of the Houses on Capital Hill or even gets brought up at a senior political press conference maybe even with the President himself.
My own personal view of Sterling might have been that he was perhaps "generationally racist" he still maye used terms that were now considered inappropriate but didn't realise the offence they might cause. Now I realise that was a far too generous view to take on someone who is clearly not a nice person and has biggoted views.
As you all probably know I'm UK based. Back in 1991 a former football club owner called Ron Noades who only died last year created a media storm when he said the following "The black players at this club lend the side a lot of skill and flair, but you also need white players in there to balance things up and give the team some brains and common sense". Noades was roundly condemned in the media and several of the team's top 3 players who were either black or mixed race left the team within a year via transfers they probably requested.
The team has never reached the heights it was at when Noades made these comments although he continued to be the owner until 1998 when he sold up and brought another club which he amazingly coached to promotion despite no coaching or playing experience.
This is the Michael Jackson video for the song They Don't Care About Us: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QNJL6nfu__Q
This is Jewish chess legend Bobby Fischer, saying that this MJ song is what brought on the wrath of the Hollywood mafia, because Michael included the lyrics "Jew me do me everybody sue me": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z5imiHYoBx4
Bobby Fischer and Michael Jackson both died shortly after.
TMZ, Jewish owned, edited out part of the conversation. Just like I was saying: Donald Sterling: It's the world! You go to Israel, the blacks are just treated like dogs. V. Stiviano: So do you have to treat them like that too? DS: The white Jews, there’s white Jews and black Jews, do you understand? V: And are the black Jews less than the white Jews? DS: A hundred percent, fifty, a hundred percent. V: And is that right? DS: It isn't a question - we don't evaluate what's right and wrong, we live in a society. We live in a culture. We have to live within that culture. http://deadspin.com/exclusive-the-extended-donald-sterling-tape-15682912...
It was a sad way of looking at the world. Think it is awful that racism like this exists in Israel, as it does all over the world. My only question is, how powerful is Donald Sterling? Does he control the world? Does everyone who is Jewish think like he does? In my personal opinion, the answer is no to the last two questions and Donald Sterling may be rich, though I do not see him as a world maker. It disgusts me that people think like he does and the way they treat the Black Jewish people.
I guarantee that a vast majority of Jewish people who watch or are involved in the NBA feel sickened by what he has said and what he believes in regard to race. You say this gives proof to a connection of "Jewish Supremacy", I say this is an old man who has a very old school way of looking at the world. His way of thinking may still be prevalent among some people, though I think that the vast majority of Jewish people I know are disgusted by his beliefs and what he was using to try and justify them.
70+% of US Jews support the Jewish Supremacist state of Israel. Because most white Jews apparently only really care when it is white Jews being treated like dogs. In which case they'll call it the greatest human tragedy in history, and make 5 movies a year about it, and indoctrinate non-Jewish children into feeling guilty about it.
I'm glad you are one of the 30% that opposes Jewish supremacist governments, but please don't run interference for the vast majority.
It's sad how much racist conspiracy is on this thread.
Listen to the rest of the tape on deadspin. I gave you the link. Opposing supremacist ideologies isn't racist. And opposing the KKK isn't racist either. Listen to Sterling in the full tape.
You took one Jewish man saying some &$#%#&@! up stuff and ran with it for two days to the point where you're talking about Bobby Fisher and Michael Jackson. You're clearly trying to promote your agenda, and I personally don't think my favorite basketball site is the place to do it. Think what you want, study what you want, but no one cares about your conspiracy &$#%#&@!.
I'll stop then, to avoid the derailer label. The full Sterling clip proves exactly what I was talking about.
If you felt the need to bring up the rest of this or the connection, I guess that is fine. However, what I really do not like is that you are grouping everything to what seems to be a full religious conspiracy. Plus you are trying to "fight against" other targets who I honestly believe are not of the same, old school mentality as Donald Sterling. You can believe whatever you would like, just found it rather sad that you are trying to get people to join what I believe is a conspiratorial crusade.
It is incredibly similar to the ignorant things that Donald Sterling is saying about a race. If you dislike all of the powerful Jewish figures, so be it. However, it seems very much that you are grouping everyone who is part of that religion or culture into the discussion, which I think is along the same lines of bigotry that indeed has been going after Donald Sterling for his comments.
Have really disliked Sterling for a long time, due to my knowledge of his stance on race before this came to light (not to mention his being a terrible owner of a basketball team). It really seems like you made this less about one basketball owners ignorance and than trying to use this as a platform to what I would deem as anti-semitic in agenda. Also being royally condescending and completely derailing a discussion about a solitary basketball owner.
"Overall, about seven-in-ten American Jews surveyed say they feel either very attached (30 percent) or somewhat attached (39 percent) to Israel, essentially unchanged since 2000-2001.”
The resilience of American Jews’ emotional attachment to Israel is remarkable in light of other trends identified in the Pew report. The survey finds that attachment declines from the oldest over-65 cohort (38 percent very attached) to the youngest cohort of 18-29-year-olds (25 percent very attached). Similar snapshots of American Jewry have led observers to erroneously conclude that attachment to Israel is declining with each passing generation."
Let's hope this positive trend continues and speeds up. You can play a powerful role if you choose to, but you will pay a high social price. Or you can keep quiet and perhaps enjoy the perks of the status quo. It all depends on where your heart is.
The conspiracy is that one tiny segment of one tiny tribe controls the entire national conversation. Disney, CBS/Viacom, Newscorp/Fox, AOL Time Warner, Comcast/NBC Universal, NYTimes, Washington Post, US News and World Report, Newsweek, on and on. When 10 men with a grudge against the world control the media, conspiracies are not only possible but inevitable.
And you'll never hear about any of them.
Watch, the media will ignore this central aspect, that Sterling is talking about Jewish/Israeli culture/racism/supremacism. The media will keep calling it "White" racism.
Donald Sterling: It’s the world! You go to Israel, the blacks are just treated like dogs.
V. Stiviano: So do you have to treat them like that too?
DS: The white Jews, there’s white Jews and black Jews, do you understand?
V: And are the black Jews less than the white Jews?
DS: A hundred percent, fifty, a hundred percent.
Sterling is a piece of human garbage, I'm not disputing that, but comon' no one ranted about the KKK for 2 days when Riley Cooper revealed himself to be a bigot. Sterling is bigo, but all your conspiracy spew is way off base to what the issue is...Michael Jackson, Bobby Fisher, Rahm Emmanuel?
It all ties together into a really simple puzzle. Ask a black guy from Chicago about Rahm.
Bill Simmons made a good point last night. David Stern nixed the Chris Paul to Lakers trade, while pushing Chris Paul to Sterling. They call that meritocracy, like Silver inheriting the NBA.
espn still not covering the existence of the missing 6 minutes from the Sterling audio tape.
The Clippers players need listen to the rest of the tape, then protest and sit out at least one game to make a huge statement and force the national conversation that is long overdue and simply will be buried by the media and political and wall street overlords.
Even if they sit one game and then try to win the series, it will be impossible for the media to ignore this high profile and righteous action, and more of the country will hear the full tape.
V: I don't understand, I don't see your views. I wasn't raised the way you were raised.
DS: Well then, if you don't feel—don't come to my games. Don't bring black people, and don't come.
V: Do you know that you have a whole team that's black, that plays for you?
DS: You just, do I know? I support them and give them food, and clothes, and cars, and houses. Who gives it to them? Does someone else give it to them? Do I know that I have—Who makes the game? Do I make the game, or do they make the game? Is there 30 owners, that created the league?
Silver's plan to raise the NBA minimum age to 20 reaks of the exact same plantation mentality. A big gift to the NCAA and the NBA's media partners like Sumner Redstone and Les Moonves of CBS and Bob Iger of Disney/ESPN/ABC.
Can Sterling get a fair trial by his fellow owners? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Jews_in_sports#Commissioners.2C_man...
(Me at times I can be an extremist in a sitaution of expressing my emotions when I'm fed up but I'm trying to think logical about it all.) If I were in the situation of an active Clippers player I'm going to play and let it be known "I am playing for myself, my family, my friends, my city, my fans, and that I will not sell them short of what they all wanted to see me achieve from Day 1, whether a stand must be made or not. I know my self worth and integrity to myself as a man first and foremost."
That would be my response in an interview setting.
Now did I handle the situation accordingly in the public eye? If so, This is all that matters most!
BTW I say racist jokes whether the person is purple, blue, green etc. but it does not make me racist as a person because it's NOT in my heart.

Ugly Truth Behind Donald Sterling's Racist Rant http://blogs.forward.com/forward-thinking/197236/ugly-truth-behind-donal...
"My initial reaction was outrage and disgust. How dare this despicable human being lie about his fellow Jews and Israeli culture to hoodwink his girlfriend into believing that it is acceptable to mistreat black people? I was outraged. After all, black Jews are obviously not treated like dogs. White Jews do not really think that black Jews are less than white Jews. Preposterous! The nerve of that man! Then I realized that, while Sterling’s choice of words was inelegant and imprecise, he wasn’t lying. Too often, white Jews do treat black Jews poorly. We do have a bit of a race problem in our communities." Read more: http://blogs.forward.com/forward-thinking/197236/ugly-truth-behind-donal...
Notice the collective narcissism expressed in this Jewish Daily Forward article. He only addresses the issue of white jews treating black jews like dogs in Israel. The Palestinians living under worse-than-Jim Crow apartheid are not even mentioned. A culture of bigotry, destablizing the world and lobbying for endless wars and billions every year in hand-outs from American taxpayers.
