Skip to comments.Racist Clippers Owner Donald Sterling Has only contributed to Democrats
Posted on 04/27/2014 1:39:00 AM PDT by South40
L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling, whom commentators have tried to tie to the Republican Party after his alleged racist statements, is in fact a Democrat, according to campaign contribution records.
Sterling is in hot water after TMZ released recordings purporting to be a weird psychosexual rant he directed at girlfriend V. Stiviano, accusing her of publicly associating with black people. The highly offensive comments have drawn condemnation from across the National Basketball Association as well as from many other sources; and inevitably, attempts have been made to link him to the Republican Party. These appear to be based on campaign contribution records for a different Sterling, who lives in the state of Texas. Clippers owner Donald Sterling lives in Beverly Hills, has a long history of bigoted behavior in his Los Angeles business dealings, and according to a 2011 RealGM report, was a very occasional Democratic donor in the 1990s:

The Clippers team said in a statement that the woman on the tape is the defendant in a lawsuit brought by the Sterling family alleging that she embezzled more than $1.8 million, who told Mr. Sterling that she would get even.
Mr. Sterling is emphatic that what is reflected on that recording is not consistent with, nor does it reflect his views, beliefs or feelings, the statement says. It is the antithesis of who he is, what he believes and how he has lived his life. He feels terrible that such sentiments are being attributed to him and apologizes to anyone who might have been hurt by them. He is also upset and apologizes for sentiments attributed to him about Earvin Johnson. He has long considered Magic a friend and has only the utmost respect and admiration for him both in terms of who he is and what he has achieved. We are investigating this matter.
“Sterling was reportedly supposed to receive a lifetime achievement award at the Los Angeles NAACPs 100th anniversary event on May 15.”
WHOOPSEE! I wonder how they’re gonna back-spin on this snafu! ROTFLMAO!!!
He will get an award from The NAACP for being a racist.
Proving their concern is fake.

I’ve told co-workers that make inappropriate comments around others (in jest) that those comments will come back to bite them when those others are in trouble. As soon as one of them is getting fired, or misses out on a promotion, you can bet those “jokes” will come up in a lawsuit...
He’ll payoff some ca$h and nothing will happen.
Maybe some day blacks will figure out what white Dems really think about them.
Almost all racists are Democrats. Most Republicans and all conservatives are indifferent to skin color. Decent people (conservatives) long ago adopted MLK’s policy of judging by the content of a person’s character and not the color of their skin, and only liberals are still obsessed with race.
What we're more concerned about is culture.
But the Left equates criticism of culture with racism.
Democrats have private faces and public faces.
The rest of America has one face, like Bundy.
Liberals love to lambaste others over race, those Americans less sophisticated in hypocrisy.
“Most Republicans and all conservatives are indifferent to skin color.”
Many I know are also indifferent to sexual orientation. That is until they start wearing leather underwear and feather boas and are making out in front of our children.
I’m against the gay political agenda. I’m under the impression that in a free country, however, that it’s not the governments job to chase down sinners who do so in a private place and with consent. But today, that goal is old fashion and it’s more about quotas and gaining gay power.
And with it, destroying all vestiges of Judeo-Christian culture.
If he has given big contributions to the Democrat Party, all will be forgiven and forgotten in 48 hours. Funny how that works ...
Gosh, I wonder how that could have been missed with so many highly intelligent investigative reporters in the MSM.
Below the surface on this one...I don’t like being criticized because my OPINION or view of the world is different than yours. What is wrong, on this basis level, for Sterling to say these things? That’s what he believes. Maybe we agree, maybe we do not...but are we saying he is wrong because “we” are right. This is mind control camouflaged in racism.
Ha....another “Hoist with own petard” event.
He will donate and all is forgotten
