For the record (not that it matters) I am African-American and happen to be a Los Angeles Lakers fan (not that that matters as well) but I'm more so concerned about the naive whites who are going to start defending this man. I've already read someone (not here) claim the "it's a private conversation argument"--Okay, it was a private conversation, but let's state the facts:
1) Donald Sterling was, is, presently, a racist per the previous information I've supplied.
2) Did I mention he was a racist? If anyone cares to read did anyone recall his Black History month tribute? In 2011 Donald Sterling was going to admit 1,000 underprivileged children for free. Seriously, to commemorate Black History month you propagate the generalization that all black kids are poor?
3) If you listened to the recording, it is obvious that he is surrounded by a racist circle of friends due to his animation regarding his girlfriend posting pictures of herself on instagram with the great Earvin "Magic" Johnson.
4) In 2003 he was sued by 19 tenents due to housing discrimination and settled out of court for an undisclosed amount.
Even though I'm not a Clipper fan if there should be any cause for African-Americans and Latinos to join together non-violently for a cause it would be to boycott Clipper games. In addition, I hope Adam Silver the NBA Commisioner chew his ass. Minorities not only players but fans and consumers make up over 80% of this game.
Then again I'm not going to be surprised if minorities continue to go to Clipper games a lot of people do not have principles these days and would rather see a Blake Griffin dunk than take a stand against an undercover rich Klan member (sarcasm).
