Spike Lee: Sterling Has ‘Mentality Of A Slave Master, Sees His Players As Slaves’
CBS ^ | April 29, 2014

Posted on 04/29/2014 8:24:58 PM PDT by MinorityRepublican

Director Spike Lee compares Donald Sterling to a slave master following the Los Angeles Clippers owner’s alleged racist comments.

“He’s got to go because he’s tainting all the other 29 partners, he’s tainting the league and he’s tainting America,” Lee told CNN Monday. “And when you hear something like that, that is a mentality of a slave master. He sees his players as slaves.”

Sterling has come under fire for audio recordings obtained by TMZ and Deadspin where he allegedly tells his girlfriend, V. Stiviano, that it bothers him that she associates herself with black people.

Lee said that during All-Star weekend in Los Angeles in 2011, Sterling told him that NBA players wouldn’t have jobs if they didn’t play basketball.

Spike, you ignorant slut. Slaves are not paid. Slaved are forced to work. Slaves do not have the freedom to leave. Spike, did I mention you were an ignorant slut?

This is black nationalism.

Yes Sterling is a racist.

But he has a right to be a racist, whatever it costs him personally.

Being a racist does not violate any law. Unlawful racist conduct violates certain laws. As far as I can see Sterling has committed no crime.

I say that the constitution requires these mandigo guys to back off and take their defamatory black nationalism elsewhere, and let the NBA league commission handle it.

Ahh, further proof that America is the greatest nation in the history of the world. Just take a look at our “slaves”.

According to the esteemed Mr. Spike, pardon me, Mr. Lee, our nation’s “slaves” on the NBA plantation make more money in a year than “free” middle-class families are likely to make in their entire lifetimes. That’s even more remarkable than our nation’s poor dying from obesity - when you can claim that your slaves live better, make more money, have more women, and enjoy more freedom than the kings of old then your nation certainly must be some kind of paradise.

Lee’s abuse of the English language, to say nothing of his shamelessly idiotic racist posturing, does a great disservice to both modern Americans as well as anyone throughout the whole of world history that may have legitimately been called a “slave”. I’d like to see a day when race-baiting pieces of filth like Mr. Lee are laughed at by the majority like they should be in any sane nation.

There’s the money shot, right there.

Has any of the media trumpeted that Sterling is a Democrat?

Nonetheless, the huge distraction has been engaged while the country descends into the economic abyss and Obamacare marches on.

Sterling just gave them Democrat talking points they desperately wanted.

Sterling doesn't want his ex girlfriend bringing black friends to the game.

Spike Lee doesn't want white people coming into black neighborhoods.

Spike Lee calls for racially segregated neighborhoods. Black audience cheers."

So the difference in what Spike said and what Sterling said is exactly what??

I hate spike lee for putting me in position where it almost sounds like I’m defending Sterling but....

Doesn’t he pay those “slaves” millions of dollars? Didn’t they all sign a contract to play for him of their own free will? And once that contract is up, can’t they leave to skme other team?

So no, Spike, they’re not slaves and he doesn’t see them as such. He’s a lot of things but he’s not a slave owner.

But as much as I dislike him, I dislike you just as much for your overexxagerated hyperventilating race baiting. Will you, Spike lee, take responsibility when someone takes your words and attacks this guy, physically?

Of course not.

the "liberal" mindset is in fact not a mindset at all but a framework through which the afflicted...expresses FEELINGS

It is in fact a short circuit in the brain..which is activated by any number of common sense triggers

Common sense concepts of all sorts set off the trigger...the brain circuit is taken offline,....and the thought ends up in the rabbit hole of emotional reactions..

Its somehwat akin to the fight or flight response. Spikeys a dumb trendy puke

They're all getting good face time on this hype...jumping on the 'race wagon'... along with all those making issue of a very old man....who has 'bought' an unattractive scum gold digger because he couldn't do so without cash. The point in the entire tape is he didn't care what she does or with who her latest sexual conquest was....just don't flaunt it in public....which she was obviously doing....and he was addressing that with her...SHE made it a race issue.

The whole thing is a staged deal for the gold digger to make a killing.....monetary wise...and others who are jumping for the race baiting she set are just as bad as she is.

Hey Spikey, go back to the Brooklyn neighborhood you grew up in instead of living the high life in Manhattan. Remember, the neighborhood you recently complained was getting “too white”?

I’ll bet the slaves would’ve loved a minimum wage of a million dollars a year, luxury cars and mansions with huge beds, first-class flight to anywhere in the world, rich food to eat and plenty of it, air-conditioning, X-Box, big screen television with hundreds of channels and all that. What a stupid statement!

Celebrating 100 years!

“There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs-partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs. ~ Booker T. Washington (1856-1915.) ~ Educator, Author, Civil Rights Leader

It pays. Especially if you use it to make crappy movies.
