Deadspin has posted a longer version of the Donald Sterling tape. It includes lots more racism.
Late Friday, TMZ released its nine-minute recording of a man alleged to be Clippers owner Donald Sterling making racist comments to his girlfriend about her being seen with black people. Deadspin has acquired and posted a longer recording of that same conversation -- a 15-minute tour through the mind of a horribly racist NBA team owner.
Deadspin has also included a transcript that's well worth digesting. It's all so bad that finding the worst bit is difficult. But this is a primary candidate, at least as it relates to the NBA:
[Girlfriend]: Do you know that you have a whole team that's black, that plays for you?
[Sterling]: You just, do I know? I support them and give them food, and clothes, and cars, and houses. Who gives it to them? Does someone else give it to them? Do I know that I have-Who makes the game? Do I make the game, or do they make the game? Is there 30 owners, that created the league?
I think David West said it best on Saturday:

The discussion between Sterling and his girlfriend also turns international, and Sterling defends his treatment of minorities based on how black Jews are treated in Israel. (Sterling is Jewish.) The Holocaust is also discussed, as well as whether Matt Kemp is light-skinned enough to appear on the girlfriend's Instagram account.
NBA commissioner Adam Silver promised a speedy investigation on Saturday. The existence of a second tape from a second source might speed that up.
Clipper players talk a lot of talk, but if they were sincere in their beliefs that what Sterling said was bad they would give back the millions of dollars they make for putting a ball in a hoop, something tells me they wont
He’s a Democrat, so it’s OK. If it were a white Republican, they’d have been ordered by their foremen (Hijackson, Sharptongue, and the rest of the racists) to go on strike.
What happened again with Marge Schott? I recall her making very blunt racist statements about 25 years ago. I think she remained owner in part till her death, but was kept away, far away from the mike. I don’t keep up with most sports.
Oh, I’m some MSM will show he donated to many GOP reelection
campaign. Therefore, he is not a democrat, but a racist Republician.
Oh no. Not horrific racism!
It was a private conversation about his private life and his business model.
It is none of our business.
So, i’m guessing that all of this guy’s girlfriends are blonde Nordic types.
Anyway, there must be some nice photos of Sterling hob-nobbing with actors and politicians.
So what kind of indulgence is Sterling going to be forced to buy in order that he be absolved of his sins by the Universal Church of Racial Politics?
You know, in some weird, twisted way, I sort of think this will be used to justify the Bureau of Land Management when it assassinates Bundy in Nevada.
(paraphrase)"To end racism old white people will just have to die."
Yeah Oprah makes sense. She's right. That's what it will take. "We're trying, we trying," Knockout Game teams.
Yep, a Dem going on a racist rant is all good..but libs try to deflect by saying he’s a Republican..yeah too bad that Donald Sterling lives in TEXAS, this Donald Sterling lives in Beverly Hills, they can’t even get that information straight..dumb ass libs, figures, they do everything necessary to try to blame racism on the right when the TRUE racism comes from their own side..Sterling also said some anti jewish stuff in that rant of his, odd since he is Jewish..talks about how black Jews in Israel are treated badly..there are NOT any black jews in Israel by the way, he’s talking about Ethiopians and I dont believe they convert to Judaism
lol. It gets better. His wife is blonde (or dyed). His (former) girlfriend (on the tape) is mixed black/Hispanic.
Exactly, its HIS team..if players don’t want to play for him that is their business, there are what, 30 other NBA teams to choose from..no one is putting a gun to these players heads forcing them to play for the Clippers..Sterling owns this team, its his and he can do what he sees fit..this whole “Suspend him” nonsense is that, total nonsense..suspending someone for their words, gee if that were the case MSNBC wouldn’t exist
it was a private conversation. he got set up...and sorry...tmz was wrong to get involved
Well, at least it gets the spotlight off of the rancher.
You do know that the basketball players have their own Union and could start some kind of strike or work slowdown against the LA Clippers.
Yeah they could do that, as a Laker fan, would love to see the Clippers go down in flames. I wonder what David Stern thinks of all this, he handed Chris Paul to them on a silver platter when the Lakers had given the Hornets a good trade, Stern vetoed the trade for “Basketball reasons” and traded him to the Clippers instead..we all know the real reason he vetoed the trade, karma is a well, ya know
