Clippers Clippers Owner: "Don't Bring Black People To My Games",throws shots at Magic Johnson.

It's difficult for me to judge what's done in what's thought to be private but this incident has been revealed to the public and hard to ignore.

Clippers Owner Donald Sterling to GF -- Don't Bring Black People to My Games ... Including Magic Johnson | TMZ.com.

Quote:
L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling told his GF he does NOT want her bringing black people to his games ... including Magic Johnson ...Sterling has a documented history of allegedly racist behavior -- he's been sued twice by the federal government for allegedly refusing to rent apartments to Blacks and Latinos.*

He was also sued by former Clippers exec Elgin Baylor for racial discrimination -- though a jury was ultimately not convinced and shot down Baylor's case.
Um,I thought we were in 2014,not 1914!?!?

I know the Goof is an owner,but does he deserve some sort of fine? In the past for example Kobe Bryant and Joakim Noah(even Roy Hibbert) were fined big money for uttering homophobic slurs so how could an owner not be held to the same standard? I know Sterling's discrimination didn't occur during or on the NBA platform but the league was referenced in a relative manner. Shit,Silver & Co. just fined Ujiri 25k for using profanity at a team pep rally.

Listened to the whole audio, the man seems very conflicted and maybe just battling his inner demons. I hope he can get some help for his issues,as we all have our own problems.

Warriors will do anything to get the Clippers off their game. Including calling the paparazzi to run a smear campaign against the Clippers front office.

Either that, or he's a dick

Probably the latter but lol...

Who am I kidding,the league won't do anything like fine him and just hope it'll go away fast. Adam Silver works for the owners essentially so if those offended are lucky,they might only get an apology. I look no further than how Roger Goddell and the NFL has handled Colts owner Jim Irsay's situation in comparison to how quick that league disciplines or fines it's players.

League should investigate immediately with a suspension of ownership privileges ready to go at a moments notice in my opinion. This is some heavy stuff if you got a racist owner in NBA basketball. Not like the Clippers can go on strike in the middle of a playoff run. NBA can't walk away like it's no big deal. This story will go viral this weekend, it already hit the NY Daily news wires.

It's been well documented that he's a complete racist, it's come up enough times to be obvious.

He is what he is, a fossil with old beliefs, but he has money, so it'll get mostly ignored again.

Her Instagram page says she is an "Artist, Lover, Writer, Chef, Poet, Stylist, Philanthropist"

Wiki says that Sterling is still married.

I'm surprised Psi's the only other person who chimed in on Sterling being a notorious racist. This is very, very old news. In fact, Sterling is probably the last remaining relic from the "Worst Franchise in Professional Sports" era (Which is basically all of Clippers history; go check it out). Well, him and Clipper Darrell.

Listened to it to see if it's just tmz misquoting him for ratings, but he really is a racist bugger. I wonder if she's the one who recorded this to get back at him then?

Does the NBA have a code of conduct for Owners? there are few things I could see the NBA doing to take away a franchise from someone (or force a sale) but being oppenly racist is one of them. The openly part being the most embarassing for the NBA. They can't claim ignorance.
