Racism is alive and well and usually it’s the elephant in the room. However with all the technology in the world today more and more people are being exposed.
The latest controversy involves audio of Clippers owner Donald Sterling and his current girlfriend V. Stiviano – having a heated discussion about her taken pictures with black people (including Magic Johnson) and posting them to her Instagram account.
The audio was obtained by TMZ Sports, Donald Sterling can be heard saying;
“You can sleep with [black people]. You can bring them in, you can do whatever you want. The little I ask you is not to promote it on that … and not to bring them to my games,” ….
“…Don’t put him (Magic) on an Instagram for the world to have to see so they have to call me,” Sterling is recorded saying. “And don’t bring him to my games.”….
It’s so ironic Sterling would say this to his lady when she herself is African-American and Mexican.
The full audio released by TMZ Sports is below, please listen to the audio and let me know what you think.
Seeing how mad the Clippers Owner was after his lady posted a picture with Magic Johnson on her Instagram I can just image how mad he was when he heard his private conversation was leaked for the whole world to hear.
To me Donald Sterling benefits off the hard work of his African American players and he benefits financially off his minority fan base so I feel it is absurd that he ask his mixed girlfriend not to hang out publicly with her minority friends and not to bring black people to his games. So for his views of society Donald Sterling is this week’s JERK OF THE WEEK!!!!!!!
What do you think? Do you feel Donald Sterling was justified in asking his lady not to post pictures with black people for the world to see?
