For the life of me, I don’t know how Donald Sterling ever became a successful businessman. Anyone dumb enough to spew forth the “alleged” vile and racist comments that were provided to TMZ, and released into our ever increasing viral world is nothing more than a clueless moron. This decrepit piece of shit symbolizes the same arrogant and outdated mindset brought forth by Cliven Bundy and his band of toothless, ignorant bastards.
Sterling’s views are no surprise.In 2009, Elgin Baylor filed several discrimination lawsuits against Sterling and The Clipper organization. There have been many other instances where this idiot stood AGAINST minorities. He was sued for housing discrimination in 2006 by the U.S. Department of Justice. He “allegedly” stated the following:
“Hispanics smoke, drink and just hang around the building. Black tenants smell bad and attract vermin.”
Of course this ignorant imbecile bought his way into a future of more discrimination by settling cases for millions of dollars. Was he concerned about “smell” when he was burying his toupee and greedy mug into the snatch of his girlfriend-I guess it was acceptable behavior, after all…she is only half black and half Mexican. Never mind that Sterling paraded his side piece in front of his wife that he is still married too. During the taped conversation, he tells the young lady that she is considered “White or Latina” and that she should not tarnish that image by associating with “Black.” It’s perfectly acceptable to fuck em, but just don’t take pictures with them or bring them to games that are DOMINATED by African-American’s that line his pockets on a regular.
Everyone from LeBron James to President Obama has spoken out against this insanity. Of course the tea party influenced trolls are incorrectly firing back with their normal tactics of deflection. Cries of First Amendment rights, “playing the race card again” and “get over it” attempt to take away from the discussion at hand. Suddenly, statements by Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Charles Barkley, and others are being used to justify Sterling’s ignorance-“See, these “Blacks” are racist too.” Give me a Hotdammed break!
The issue of racism needs to be dealt with head-on and NOT pushed under the same dirty rug that it has hidden under for decades.We also need action against those who insist on promoting it. The days of freeing your mind and expecting your ass to FREELY follow…are OVER. Every action, even words, generate a reaction. It’s time for not just The NBA to properly react to these hateful words, but for all of U.S. to stand united in our will to send the cancer of racism into permanent remission.~Daryl
