KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia -- President Barack Obama on Sunday described comments reportedly made by the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers "incredibly offensive racist statements," before casting them as part of a continuing legacy of slavery and segregation that Americans must vigilantly fight.
"When ignorant folks want to advertise their ignorance, you don't really have to do anything, you just let them talk," Obama said when asked to respond to Donald Sterling's reported comments....

Its an election issue!
Quick to comment on this while more important issues get silence.
He has no special purchase on slavery or integration, or discrimination by race. None.
His entire life has been one of preference, privilege and unwarranted advancement because of COLOR.
His ‘ancestry’ is hate, division and just plain crazy in my opinion.
...just didn't want HIV Magic Johnson hitting on his girlfriend.
A beer summit should clear things right up.
The Clippers owner is an astonishing character. He is getting rich with the amazing Doc Rivers and an array of talented black athletes. He is married and has a mixed race black/Hispanic girlfriend. But he hates black people on principle. The principle being blacks are sub human.
I will support Obummer on this and I think a comment is warranted from him. He is black after all. Ok, probably not black. More like Arabic and Indonesian. But whatever.
But, with all the other things going on with Russia, Obummercare, Reid, Green silliness, economic destruction wrought by Obummers policies I get peoples reaction around here. Truly Obamma hates white christian america as much as the Clippers owner hates black people.
This is 2014. When will people get over race? Never I guess. We, humans are tribal creatures. It is sad but it is reality. Until we stop de-humanizing individuals and groups we will kill each other in bunches.
Humans have spent thousands of years butchering each other over race religion and tribe. It will always be so. Sad.
Wow. If that isn’t the kettle calling the pot black.
You should listen to the whole tape. He said he didn’t care if his girlfriend slept with black people, but he didn’t want her to publicly associate with black people. Weird.
“We, humans are tribal creatures.”
My favorite summation/explanation for all of human history in the fewest words.....
Would that it was headlined every day,everywhere to educate all......
Here's something really important for the president to get involved in.
The Democrats will try to hang a “he’s really a closet Tea Party member” tag on Sterling. C’mon folks the race card always works for them. Why stop now? We live in some dreadful times and sometimes I wonder if this isn’t a bad reality show coming to life.
Sterling v. Bundy — Cage Match
Or RINOS v DEMS — Cage Match to disown
Clipper’s owner is Jewish and NAACP Award recipient. The Revs Wright, Jackson and Sharpton can really go after
the Jews now, Sterling is a Billionaire LA Property owner.
More “legacy of slavery, race, segregation” for those who are interested.
‘White Girl Bleed A Lot’: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It’
I’m smelling a SETUP and DISTRACTION
Set up and Distraction?
Donald Sterling may have been set up by his girlfriend. Probably he was. But I can guarantee you this chump Mr. Sterling has said all kinds of crazy racist stuff and that prompted his half black girlfriend to set him up. After all, Mr. Sterling is getting rich off the efforts of his black coach and black players.
Mr. Sterling is a jerk and I can’t imagine defending him in any way.
Well then maybe we need to start using Obama, Wright, and Farrakhan all in the same sentence from now on when addressing the One!
I still am not clear on what he allegedly said. Sounds like his wife was out hanging out with AAs because they were AAs. Isn’t that sort of reverse racism? This sounds more like what I call a testosterone moment than racism. That word is so overused.
When is the mixed-race, race-baiting, sniveling POS going to learn to shut his ‘who gives a sh!t’ mouth!!
Obama been talkin' for 10 years and yet he talks on.
Sorry to disappoint, but this is about a foolish old rich man and a foolish young beautiful woman, in an illicit relationship that went wrong.
When is Obama going to release his private conversations so we can judge him.
