NBA's Donald Sterling Tells Girlfriend, 'In Israel, Blacks Are Treated Like Dogs'
Owner Seeks To Justify Racist View of African-Americans
April 28, 2014
In a newly released audiotape of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterlings notorious racist remarks to his girlfriend, he seems to justify his views of African-Americans by noting how in Israel the blacks are just treated like dogs.
In the original, shorter tape released Friday by the TMZ website, which has caused a storm in the United States, Sterling is heard at a game complaining to his black-Mexican girlfriend, V. Stiviano, after seeing that shed posted Instagrams of herself with black former basketball star Magic Johnson. Dont bring black people to the Clippers games, he tells her. It bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast that youre associating with black people. Do you have to?
In the new, 15-minute tape released Sunday by the U.S. website Deadspin, Sterling, 80, is heard telling Stiviano, 38, You think Im a racist which Stiviano denies. He insists that thats what she thinks, that he has an evil heart, to which she replies, I dont think so. I think you have an amazing heart, honey, I think the people around you have poison mind, and have a way of thinking.
At that point Sterling - born to American Jewish immigrant parents as Donald Tokowitz seemingly tries to defend his views by putting them in an international context, singling out how blacks are treated in Israel.
Sterling: Its the world! You go to Israel, the blacks are just treated like dogs.
Stiviano: So you have to treat them like that too?
Sterling: The white Jews, theres white Jews and black Jews, do you understand?
Stiviano: Are are the black Jews less than the white Jews?
Sterling: A hundred percent, fifty, a hundred percent.
Stiviano: And is that right?
Sterling: It isnt a question we dont evaluate whats right and wrong, we live in a society. We live in a culture. We have to live within that culture.
In Muslim countries, everyone who is not a Muslim is called a dog. I have some old circa 1855 books of travels through Muslim countries. You soon learn that non-Muslims had to take other roads or risk death.
Mr Sterling’s views on theology.
Yet Israel has taken in a huge number of Christian and Jewish refugees from Africa.
It's not like he's starting some movement....like Farrakhan...or Michelle and Obama's bud, Reverend Wright.
Hey Donald... Universal law # 1.... Never trust a whore..
If they are treated like MY DOG, they’re pampered, fed, loved, and spoiled rotton.
Can they all just go away? More bread and circuses to distract the masses.
Obviously he is unaware of the extreme efforts made by Israel to rescue Ethiopian Jews in the past decade.
At this point, if the media was responsible, it would stop writing articles about new Sterling tapes. He’s a racist; we get it. Now the media is just promoting this whore he went out with and giving her press by continuing to publish transcripts of her tapes. But we all know our media can’t resist lurid stories involving Racism so they will continue.
Israel has also rescued plenty of African muslims from racist arab muslims in recent years as well.
Remember when "actions speak louder than words" was the way we lived? If our culture weren't so far down the drain, having a mistess, flaunted in public, would've cause outrage and censure....and Sterling's and everyone else's freedom of speech, even to say awful things, in private, would be protected.
I suspect this whole situation is going to do the NBA a lot of damage down the road, and rich smart billionaires who are less than perfect might want to find other toys instead of NBA teams.
Yet Israel has taken in a huge number of Christian and Jewish refugees from Africa.
...and ships them to Sweden.
Israel gave birth control to Ethiopian Jews without their consent
Israel has admitted for the first time that it has been giving Ethiopian Jewish immigrants birth-control injections, often without their knowledge or consent.
The government had previously denied the practice but the Israeli Health Ministrys director-general has now ordered gynaecologists to stop administering the drugs. According a report in Haaretz, suspicions were first raised by an investigative journalist, Gal Gabbay, who interviewed more than 30 women from Ethiopia in an attempt to discover why birth rates in the community had fallen dramatically.
One of the Ethiopian women who was interviewed is quoted as saying: They [medical staff] told us they are inoculations. We took it every three months. We said we didnt want to. It is alleged that some of the women were forced or coerced to take the drug while in transit camps in Ethiopia.
The drug in question is thought to be Depo-Provera, which is injected every three months and is considered to be a highly effective, long-lasting contraceptive.
Nearly 100,000 Ethiopian Jews have moved to Israel under the Law of Return since the 1980s, but their Jewishness has been questioned by some rabbis. Last year, the Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, who also holds the health portfolio, warned that illegal immigrants from Africa threaten our existence as a Jewish and democratic state.
The media continues to pile on. And Jay-Z attended a basketball game while wearing a pendant from the Five Percent Nation, which claims white people are the devil and the black man is "god."
But that's a non-story. /s
Guess he didn’t put up the for sale sign.... yet. So here lets put a little more fuel on the fire.
This morning on Good Morning America, Georgie said Sterling had/has been battling cancer.
The old Rich dude could have had any “girlfriend” he wanted, so instead of having a Gorgeous striking Blonde Bimbo, he picks a woman with a shady past who looks like a Thai Girly Man.
On top of that, hearing the “Girlfriend” speak, she sounds as dumb as a Box of Barbara Boxers. I hear she wants to be President someday. She’ll probably have a shot.
I can only blame it on Sterling’s bad Cataract Surgery and Deafness.
Having seen several photos of Ms. Stiviano, it's difficult to see how she can be described as "black." She appears to eyes are consistent with some American Indian (or East Asian) ancestry, as is her skin complexion. Her hair does not have the kinky texture normally associated with black African ancestry.
I haven't the faintest idea of what Sterling would mean by that statement. Israel has very few people whom Americans would describe as "black," i.e., of sub-Saharan African origins (excluding South Africans of European origin).
The only ethnic group which we would generally consider to be black would be the questionable "Jews" who escaped persecution in Ethiopia a decade or two back. However, some dark-complected Sephardic Jews with ancestry from Arab countries might be considered "black" by other Israelis.
Treated like dogs? Well, dogs are treated quite well in general in Israel, especially as compared to predominantly Muslim countries.
Seems as if Sterling is suffering from some kind of dementia, not that it should cause him to have his property stripped from by the tyrannical organization known as the NBA, which consists of a bunch of leftist political correctness enforcers.
Dementia...or, more likely in my view, he has swallowed a number of liberal conspiratorial propositions about Israel.
His expressed racism even has a strong liberal flavor to it.
This is going to COMPLICATE things.
Yes, it’s easy to be “outraged” to hear him attack ‘protected’ groups, but now that he’s attacking Israel, and presumably wants all Bankers (liberal code word for Jews) to be gassed, maybe he’s not so bad after all (at least in the eyes of liberals)?
Blacks are treated more decently in Israel than in America in many respects. I am raising a granddaughter who is black on her father’s side, and she’ll do better here. For one thing, Jews have all sorts of skin colors here, and for another, we’re surrounded by people who hate us, so are inclined to love one another unconditionally.
