Donald Sterling: Get away from me you pig!

Donald Sterling: Get away from me you pig!

Postby John3:16 on Fri Apr 25, 2014 10:28 pm

L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling told his GF he does NOT want her bringing black people to his games ... including Magic Johnson.

TMZ Sports has obtained audio of Sterling making the racist declaration during a heated argument on April 9th with V. Stiviano ... after she posted a photo on Instagram posing with Magic.

Sterling rails on Stiviano -- who ironically is black and Mexican -- for putting herself out in public with a black person (she has since taken the pic down). But it doesn't end there. You have to listen to the audio to fully grasp the magnitude of Sterling's racist worldview. Among the comments:

-- "It bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast that you’re associating with black people. Do you have to?" (3:30)

-- "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." (5:15)

-- "I’m just saying, in your lousy f******* Instagrams, you don’t have to have yourself with, walking with black people." (7:45)

-- "...Don't put him [Magic] on an Instagram for the world to have to see so they have to call me. And don't bring him to my games." (9:13)

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.

I don't get being an NBA owner and being racist, aren't you sort of in the wrong business if you don't want to be around black people? Also, not shocked at this if true, as the article said he has a history, and he may be the worst owner in pro sports.

money talks. He makes a boat load of money off the backs of NBA players so it doesn't matter if they are black, white, mexican or martian as long as they bringing in him money.

Doc and The team needs to push him to apologize for his comments, or else they strike in the middle of the playoffs.

I see it a different way ... this is the excuse for CP3 choking in this postseason ... can't blame the coach or the team's roster this time so the Teflon don of the league needed an excuse

Please listen to the audio. It's one of the most grotesque things I've ever heard. He's pleading with her to be racist. "You can't be flexible," he says - and he means, "You can't force yourself to hate minorities"??

I'd say he should have to give up his team and ownership, but it will be nice to watch the team crumble.

The only thing that ever really surprised me about any of this is why Donald Sterling was ever allowed by other NBA owners to own a team. I mean that's the question people should really be asking here.

Will the NBA do anything about it? I'm afraid this will just get swept under the rug cuz it's "TMZ".

I'd like to see how the Clippers players react though.

It is going to be hot topic in the next few days. Rivers, Paul, Griffin and the rest of them will be bombarded with questions and pressed for their thoughts. And they thought the Lakers are a circus? This will be for them and a lot worse circumstances...

I'm not surprised by his comments. I expect the players, owners, and coaches to voice their opinions, but no one is going to do anything that could jeopardize their money or put their life under a microscope. In the end the media will milk this story for as long as they can, but most people in society will only care about it for a week.

Why the hell did Baylor put up with this all those years? Why didn't he leave? He likely could have gotten a good job elsewhere in the league with his cachet. Doesn't say a lot for him either. So Cal lifestyle?

Make no mistake.... the Machine will be initiated. Jackson, Sharpton and the crew will be on their way. This will turn into the typical circus for political points and then vaporize once all the political capital has been extracted.

My guess is that Sterling gets "suspended" and that will mean basically nothing.....

I hate racist people, Sterling should get a fined from the NBA, and I mean a huge one !

Btw if he really didn't like back people so much, then please send CP3 to us as we will kindly take it away from you.

ESPN doesn't have this story on their website.... don't want to upset that NBA gravy train.

I agree though give it a few days this will be an afterthought when the Clippers get bounced in the first round.

Best case scenario, Sterling is forced to sell the team, Chris Hansen and the Seattle group buys them and moves the team to Seattle. :man1:
In the real world, the day Steph awoke at 9 a.m. to begin his Ustream show, Kobe Bryant probably awoke at the same time, even if it was 6 a.m. in California, and lifted weights.

I hope this really doesn't offend anybody, but this is that typical oppressive behavior that was the norm back in the day.

Why Magic? Probably because he is Sterling's equal. Sterling has no problem with Rivers, CP3, Griffin, etc...because he "owns" them. He employs them and therefore has power and control over their destiny. Magic is part of the majority ownership group of the Dodgers. Magic is an owner just like Sterling...and that puts a black man on an equal playing field as this bigot. Of course Sterling no likey, cause he thought he can control his black girlfriend the same way he thought he can control his black employees....through money.

Donald Sterling is a modern day "slave owner" and he's proud of it.
