Donald Sterling flap is also disturbing for what it says about sex
The Washington Post ^ | April 29, 2014 | Ruth Marcus

Posted on 04/30/2014 7:06:49 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Race is, hands down, the most repulsive aspect of the Donald Sterling scandal. But sex is a close second. To listen to the taped conversation between the octogenarian owner of the Los Angeles Clippers and the 30-something V. Stiviano is to glimpse the tawdry and inherently unequal arrangement between — well, let’s put it primly, benefactor and recipient.

The Sterling-Stiviano deal appears to involve a transaction as old as time. We’ve seen it before, yet we rarely see inside it in such unvarnished, ugly form.

Just look at the photos of the pair courtside, and you know what’s up: Sterling, puffy-faced and unattractive; old enough to be Stiviano’s grandfather, no less her father; but powerful and, perhaps more relevant, fabulously rich. Stiviano, striking in a Cosmo girl way, with a Mexican/African American background that makes Sterling’s reported aversion to having her associate with — or, more precisely, appear on social media to associate with — African Americans all the more bizarre.

They met, according to a lawsuit filed against Stiviano by Rochelle Sterling, Sterling’s wife of more than 50 years, at the 2010 Super Bowl. Donald Sterling allegedly proceeded to shower Stiviano with luxuries: a 2012 Ferrari, two Bentleys, a 2013 Range Rover, a $1.8 million home and $240,000 in living expenses.....

FWIW until 2010 V. Stiviano was named Maria Vanessa Perez.

Can’t remember what Ruthie Marcus’ position on the most powerfull man on the planet using a cigar as a sex toy on an intern, then leaving a DNA sample on her blue dress. But I’m guessing it was a lot more forgiving than her feelings about Sterling.

I never understood what this was about. The first time I saw a picture of Mz. Perez a couple of days ago, I thought she was black. I didn’t know why what’s his name was complaining about blacks if his bimbo was black. Today I read that Perez’s natural father was probably black. So I have no idea what all this seedy stupid headliner is about. She’s a prostitute. It can only go downhill from there.

How was the relationship unequal? A ton of feathers balances perfectly with a ton of lead, though the two sides are much different in size. His side balances with money, and her’s with the ability to fulfill his sexual fantasies.

Ruth is kinder than I am. The girl is a prostitute, the guy is repulsive, the sporting world is tawdry, the whole “scandal” is stupid, and there’s not much more to say about it.

I may be flawed in my analysis, but might I say that Sterling doesn’t sound like a cast-iron racist. What racist would say its fine to “sleep with black guys, I don’t care” but just don’t be seen with them in public? It sounds more like the real racists were the guys he was hanging around with who were calling him because of what they saw this woman doing.

To me, Sterling just sounds like he’s ‘keeping up appearances’ with the crowd he runs with. An idiot for sure, but is he being unfairly put through the wringer? For all we know, the people who were ‘calling him’ are other guys high up in the NBA.

A silly,stupid,(perhaps even lonely, but really a jerk,)old fool. Was being serviced by a young female gold digger who was in turn being was being serviced by much youger black bucks at his expence which she paraded in front of him. Just to piss him off. Somehow after speaking with her lawyer sets up a situation where the dotting dupe seeing what little loyalty to him he expected from her being destroyed. Vents his frustration over a taped phone conversation that suddenly gets made public.

I think I know why that codger needs a little hot pepper sauce. He’s eighty and fears death. I heard that in a Cher movie, hahahahaha. Irrelevance to some is death. If he doesn’t have a problem with her scr**ing whom she likes then why oh why does he have a problem with her bringing them to a game. He fears how he is perceived by others that is the worst part of him. Why does a man need more than one woman. He fears death. And to many, men and women, irrelevance is death in a form. PRIDE, RELEVANCE, FEAR OF DEATH. Any of those interest you?

One of my ancestors, in the 1700s or 1800s, married his 6th wife when she was 18 and he was 94.

He had 2 kids with her, and he lived to 107.

He had 22 kids total.

I'm expecting a SNL skit where the lady is adjusting the microphone and reading off a goldigger cue card while his back is turned. The way she went on and on during the conversation was so obvious. The funny thing was the whole Instagram being in the conversation. Just funny.

I also think his problem is how his friends will see him. He doesnt care if his whore is screwing other guys but he doesnt want to be cuckholded in front of his friends. As long as she is discrete its not a problem for him. The problem is the crazy bimbo is not the discrete type.

He has the JDL and the skinheads both thinking he is really talking about Jews. But Icke really just wants to warn the world about lizard people, like how one does when they have knowledge of the evil lizard people among us.

I hope Sterling calls him to testify.

I am sick of the news media spouting about his "racism."Doubtless, he is racist, but he is so much more ugly than that.

I believe it is a personal thing. In spite of his billions and power, this man has grown old and ugly (inside and out). Let's look at what he does because he can't make himself younger, stronger, better looking, more lovable:

--He uses his power to pick and choose who gets the privilege of paying him to live in his property.

--He parades a young woman in front of the world, obviously bought and paid for her services. This must be an embarrassment to his family, especially hurtful to his wife.

--He forbids his paid woman to be with younger stronger men of her own race---because it diminishes him?--because he CAN do it with his money and power? Who knows? Probably not even him

This man is a pitiful human being because he tries to substitute money and power for all the things he is not. I think he is not so much racist as he is resentful. He lashes out like a child who breaks his toys and demands more.

...”I blame Viagra with out that the old boy would never have strayed.”...

I totally agree. This man is and has been a narcissist and, possibly, psychotic, for many years..Now, I believe he is demented. However, the population of so called “leaders” in this world is full of people like him and they are nothing new..The book of Proverbs from the Bible describes them and the “gold diggers” who chase them perfectly..Their end is also described and it is not pretty.

Ruth Marcus is a hard-core lefty who would never see the same problem if it involved anyone she considered on her side. Should probably be out there offering to give him a hummer herself it was Bill Clinton to someone like that.

Ruthie speaks from experience when she uses the terms "puffy faced" and "unattractive."

I'm sure the IRS is taking great interest in the Sterling matter. I wonder if Donald paid the gift tax on all those gifts to his "friend"?

They will also be interested in the tax on "imputed income" from her rent-free house.

She's going to wish she never made those tapes. She will become more toxic than Magic once the SHTF.
