Extended Donald Sterling recording includes more horrific racism (Reminder: Democrat donor)
SB Nation ^ | April 27, 2014 | Tom Ziller

Posted on 04/27/2014 2:48:54 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

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:

David West ✔ @D_West30

Sterling basically articulated Plantation
Politics...Make money off the Bucks/Lay with
the Women/No Association in Public good or bad

6:32 PM - 26 Apr 2014

2,408 Retweets 1,289 favorites

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.

Sterling is now definitely facing at minimum the same suspension that the late Marge Schott got, in my humble opinion.

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.

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.

Horrific racist remarks! Sterling's a racist! Crucify him! To the wall! Destroy him!

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

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

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

Here's the problem for the usual suspects: Sterling owns the assets.

He's done nothing illegal.

Typically, they will organize a boycott or intimidate a customer into ruining the target's business.

This guy owns an NBA team and about a thousand rental properties.

Rent strikes don't work, and there is no other professional basketball league to patronize.

A lot less leverage than normal here.

How would that work, exactly?

Not show up for games and violate their contracts?

Play terrible games and lose TV ad revenue for themselves as well as the Clippers?

The only option would be a lockout to oust Sterling, which no owner would permit.

For reasons I have never completely understood, the NBA Commissioner has near infinite power. All he’s got to say is that this hurts the NBA, and the guy has got to go.

I wish the media would spend a little more time on what actually happened:

A geriatric millionaire splits with his wife and shacks up with a hip hop girl a third of his age...she allegedly steals a ton of money from him...he sues...she calls him and drags on a long conversation with him, fishing and prying to get him to show his true racist colors.

There is a lot of bad behavior going on, by both parties...a lot of which is really a lot more important that mulling on why an 80 year old man is a racist.

Oh well.

No problemo. Money is being placed in the right pockets. Enough to keep Messrs. Jackson and Sharpton from circling the skies over the Sterling mansion. The MSM is already making reference to remarks “allegedly” made by Mr. Sterling. All is forgiven. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Mr. Bundy remains unforgiven.

The MSM always gives a free pass to blacks who commit crimes..they commit crimes against blacks all the time and you never see the suspect’s face and whenever that happens I always know why..meanwhile, Sterling went on a rant against Jews too, kind of ironic since he is himself Jewish, but like all liberal Jews, they despise Israel more than the arabs

I'll say the same thing I said in the Cliven Bundy threads.

Looks like the progressive Racism! dog whistle is working just fine.

Do these people have NOTHING better to do with their lives than wail and gnash their teeth over "language"?

I'm glad the Left wasn't able to download their Grievance malware into the hard-drive in my head.

So according to you, the owner of a team in a black dominated sport, with a ton of black fans, going on an idiotic and disgusting anti-black tirade is somehow a victim of racism? Wow.

That is the most moronic thing I ever read. Please post sober from now on.

Sounds like the Left tattooed the Racism! Trojan virus right onto your brain. Wonder what other malware they downloaded on you?

I have to admit that I don't have TeeVee to tell me what to think, so I have an edge on you there.

Some sleazy rich dude who employs "pretend slaves" who make more in one child's game than most people make in a year is duking it own with some slut who loved him for his big hard thick fat black wallet holds no interest for me.

I'm curious about why you're so concerned about a child's game. Don't we have bigger fish to fry here at Free Republic? Like, a couple of hundred Fedthugs with automatic weapons killing a peasant's cattle and threatening to shoot protestors...

Players, black players and their sympathizers in the league may not necessarily go on strike, but use the same tactics that members of police unions exercise when lots of members have the Blue Flu.

Five of six star players on each team would claim to be sick and not play in a game. National network games with no star players would be a big revenue hit for the networks and the networks would push Sterling out.

Good point, but I think it’s even better to call them “overseers” than foremen.

This guy has a long history of racist behavior and yet in May he was going to receive a lifetime achievement award from the LA branch of the NAACP. It makes me suspect he has been paying them to stay off his back for a while.
