I just read the TMZ piece, having risen late today.

Talk about a ‘gift from above’...

Quite the dichotomy to another popular figure.

Some folks know how demokkkrats REALLY feel about africanAmericans. LBJ’s comments about giving just the right amount of stuff will keep them “N’s” votin’ demokkkrat for 100 years. Great society my butt. (or something close anyway)

MOST Jews in L.A are Dems, not surprising. Close to 90% I know of.

His “girlfriend” set him up. I don’t know if he’s racist or not. But he’s suing her for embezzling something like 1.8 mil from him. She said she’d get even. Here’s that story;

This can't be true. I'm sure that Donald Sterling was one of the militia men on the Bundy ranch.

The driveby’s have already had a week of whipping themselves into a frenzy over Bundy’s alleged racist comments, so we can't have something like this upsetting the narrative that we all know to be true.

Which is: ONLY REPUBLICANS AND TEA PARTIERS ARE RACIST.

End of story.

You know, it escapes most people, even conservatives, that the Republican Party was formed in large part because many Whigs and Democrats were ashamed of slavery and wished to abolish it. However, neither the Whigs nor Democrats were inclined to do much about it.

Yes, you read that correctly. The Republican party came into existence in order to abolish slavery and grant equal rights to all citizens.

So, it makes perfect sense that most of the true racists in this country would be on the Democrat side.

Yet the liberals have successfully pushed the meme that Republicans are racist, and that minority groups should find their political home in the Democrat party.

When it does not fit the agenda of news only fit to be heard one must acquit by blaming the non-racists. Thus certainly the lame-stream will correct their error on the television screen and declare this person a democrat.

Dims fought for slavery in the mid 1800’s
Dims came up with Jim Crow laws
Dims came up with poll taxes
Dims fought and even filibustered civil and voting rights
Dims destroyed the black family with welfare
Dims kept blacks “in their place” by forcing them into crappy
public schools.

But it is the Republicans that are racist?

No kidding this guy is a Dim!

He may be a Democrat but don’t put it past the Dems and their media allies to find some link between Sterling and the Koch Brothers or some other entity which connects him to the Republican Party.

I found 16 FEC gifts. 9 were Dem 7 were Rep. All Dem gifts were ~20 years old. He gave to Romney in 2012.

Know what? I don't care What he said. It was a private conversation with his girlfriend. Besides, this "racist" stuff is now applied to EVERYthing, from the weather to nature's own black oil (in the ground). It's meaningless anymore. I think we are all "racists" now, by the New Thought standard. So what, anyway? Who cares, as Hilary would say, at this point in time who cares? You can't legislate love. You can only legislate rules and enforcement. And we are all Enforcers now, it seems, from Mozilla to the freeking Twitter.... ...no help coming, America.... 😇

Yep, from some of the endless management training requirements the State of CA. puts you through, I heard more than once that it is illegal.

Donald ‘the Liberal Racist Democrat’ Sterling reminds me of the Rodney Dangerfield character in ‘Caddyshack’l, only much meaner and not funny at all.
Mr. Sterling gives regular white trash a bad name.

I noticed that all of the articles failed to mention his political leanings which meant undeniably that he was a Democrat. Its so easy now days to identify the bias.

No surprise here. Think about it, any group that espouses identity politics by race is, by definition, racist.

For example, why is it "racist" to say Jews love money, but it's not "racist" to say that a "good Jews" is liberal or leftist? Or is it "racist" if one say that Blacks love fried chicken and watermelon, but not "racist" to say that any Black person who isn't a liberal/leftist is an "Uncle Tom.?"

And why is it OK to vote for Gore/Lieberman because Lieberman is Jewish, or to vote for Obama, because he's "Black," but it's racist to vote against them for the same reasons?

It is, but thay has no relevance to this case. This was a voicemail Sterling voluntarily left her.

Yeah, but do you think the media will ever expose that fact? Sterling has to be thrown under the bus and somehow he has to be linked with some entity on the right before that’s done.

It’s OK then, since he’s a Democrat. “His heart’s in the right place.” How many times I heard that when hanging out in bars populated with leftists. They can say or do anything they want, even the most repulsively retrograde, repugnant Klannish spew, and get a pass from their cohorts so long as they toe the ideological line. The kumbayah is boob bait for the flyover bubbas, they only have a deal, Democrats and black people. You vote for us, we give you stuff. Whatever rationale supports that is good, whatever argues against it is bad. They supply the conversational patter and nickel words for a patina of intellectuality. Get too persuasive in opposition, the scarlet R gets trotted out and they start shouting you down. There is no persuading.

Every other week in the LA Crimes biz section there is an ad announcing some award Sterling has received or some award dinner he will be the honoree at. Today there was one.

He pays for the ads.

He owns every other high rise apartment/condo building west of downtown LA and he does spread some $$$$ around the community, but he’s very self-aggrandizing.

As far as I know he is still married to Shelly. The tape was done by his ex-girlfriend. Can’t tell the players without a scorecard.

He has held the clippers back forever and now his story is dominating their first round of the playoffs.

Interesting to see how they do today. perhaps the experience of Rivers and Paul can get them past this.

I’ve watched pro B-Ball since the early 60s and I think in addition to preference for star players, some teams get a nod during the play-offs. For decades the accusations were flying thatch league wanted NY, LA or Boston in the finals.

I coached and reffed some, and I don’t see how you can fix a game, but you can spread calls throughout a game and give some points to one ten or the other.
