Move over Cliven Bundy, we have spotted a real racist. Donald Sterling now has the media spotlight pointed at him, and rightfully so. And yes Sterling said what he allegedly said.
What I really enjoy is how quickly the Left want to “correct,” when it comes to racism. The irony being that the Left are the biggest racists, as they claim they want to fix the problem they continue to create.
Though it shouldn’t be, Sports is a Liberal enclave; entertainment. The irony is athletes advance on a meritocracy, rising from nothing to something in a matter of years. But their “muscle memory” is based on poverty and ignorance, so these new-money millionaires still maintain a ghetto mentality.
That is why many formerly poor black athletes are broke shortly after they leave sports.
Bob Costas, Bryant Gumbel, Keith Olbermann, and just about all the rest dismiss the Liberalism of sports, the inequities of what they do, as they make millions off the athletes for doing very little. These bleeding hearts profiteers, despite witnessing the triumph of the human spirit daily always manage to find something wrong with America, except with their own.
Which brings me to LA Clippers owner, Donald Sterling.
The media are just now jumping on the fact that Donald Sterling is a racist. They act as if they had no idea about this man, while they simply chose to ignore his racist views. Because Sterling is one of them.
Sterling’s record on race is, shall I say, “less than sterling.”
In August 2006, the U.S. Department of Justice sued Sterling for housing discrimination in using race as a factor in filling some of his apartment buildings. The suit charged that Sterling refused to rent to non-Koreans in the Koreatown neighborhood and to African Americans in Beverly Hills. If this isn’t a Democrat policy, then I don’t know what is. Democrats want segregatd neighborhoods, with ethnically appropriate overseers.
If that’s not enough evidence of Sterling’s racist attitudes, try this.
The same DOJ suit alleged Sterling once said he did not like to rent to Hispanics because they “smoke, drink and just hang around the building,” and that “Black tenants smell and attract vermin.”
On the heels of this lawsuit, Sterling was hit by another when in February 2009, Sterling was sued by former longtime Clippers executive Elgin Baylor for employment discrimination on the basis of age and race. The lawsuit alleged Sterling told Baylor that he wanted to fill his team with “poor black boys from the South and a white head coach”.
The suit further alleged that during negotiations for Danny Manning, Sterling said “I’m offering a lot of money for a poor black kid,” and noted those comments while alleging “the Caucasian head coach was given a four-year, $22-million contract”, but Baylor’s salary had “been frozen at a comparatively paltry $350,000 since 2003”.
I guess Doc Rivers and the other black people playing for the Clippers were unaware of what I found out about Sterling in the time it took me to drink a cup of the black stuff?
In a typical Liberal move, Sterling tried to BUY his way back to redemption, as reported here:
Despite a June 26, 2006 Los Angeles Times article, detailing the Donald T. Sterling Charitable Foundation’s pledge to spend $50 million on a site on the eastern end of Downtown Los Angeles to provide services for Los Angeles’ homeless population, nothing has been built. According to an LA Weekly article from February 19, 2008, critics were skeptical that the homeless center would ever be built, and surmised that Sterling bought the property purely for its real-estate value. A follow up article from the LA Weekly states that the foundation has yet to even start attempting to deliver on its promises but continues to run full-page ads trumpeting its pledge in the LA Times.
Something tells me that homeless shelter might have a real shot at being built now!
I will have additional comments about Sterling’s NAACP awards…
