Obama Responds to Alleged Racist Comments by Clippers' Don Sterling
CNN ^ | April 27, 2014 | Kevin Conlon and Shelby Lin Erdman

The racism controversy embroiling Don Sterling, the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers, has reached half way around the world to Malaysia, where President Obama is on a diplomatic mission to Asia Pacific nations. At a press conference with Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak Sunday, Obama was asked about racist comments Sterling allegedly made about African Americans. "When ignorant folks want to advertise their ignorance, you don't really have to do anything, you just let them talk. That's what happened here," the President said.

It's somewhat difficult to understand the attitude of Clippers' Owner, Don Sterling. Whatever his personal feelings about black people are, that is his prerogative and he can do and say as he pleases. But when you're a businessman and nearly 100% of the people in your company are black, you'd think just simply because you're making all that money from them in a open, public display, environment somebody with any business sense would learn to like them or just learn to ameliorate you're animus in public and private because it's going to pay a big price for it. My God. You're an owner of an NBA team, how stupid can you be to espouse an attitude like that?

The only real thing that bothers me is that it allows that cheap, racist bastard, who occupies the highest office in the land having facilitated such an act of amorality in the most fraudulent, felonious manner imaginable and he's going to preach to us about America, its racial sins, talking from up on high on what is moral and right.

Hey, Obama, why don't you GTF out of our Country. NOW!

Obama was supposed to be the great unifier. All he's done is undo years of progress in relations between the races.

Further proof that in today’s America, being a racist is the worst possible crime one can commit.

Because was having a private conversation in the privacy of hi sown home, or something very close to his own home.

You don’t get it. HE is the victim here, not any minorities or basketball players or “society”. It is outrageous that this issue is being missed.

I thought Obama’s quote was about himself.

Hussein, where was your indignation when Alvin Holmes, Black democrat legislator from Alabama, made statements on the floor of the Alabama statehouse opposing black/white marriage, and white adoption of black children? That’s right, he’s black, he gets to look out for his own race.

This from the guy who sat in Reverend Wright’s church for decades, and who invites noted anti-Semite Al Sharpton to the White House, among other things?

private conversation in the privacy of his own home

Big Brother monitors all private conversations. Remember that time driving by yourself when that selfish ____ in front of you decided to park blocking the road? The NSA recorded your reaction to that through your turned off cell phone.

“I was wowed by Barack Obama’s oratorical gifts and believe that the country is ready to embrace a black presidential candidate, especially one such as Obama — a ‘light-skinned’ African American ‘with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.” ~Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV)

It’s pretty obvious that he did not in fact know his conversation was being recorded. His privacy was and is being violated. The GF should be charged with violating the law.
