Clippers Owner Donald Sterling’s Racist Comments Cause a Storm

Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling doesn’t want his girlfriend hanging out with black people, even if that black person happens to be Magic Johnson.

In a recording obtained by TMZ, Sterling  makes racist comments during a heated argument with his girlfriend V. Stiviano – who happens to be black and Mexican – over the posting of a Instagram photo featuring Stiviano and Magic Johnson, which has since been deleted.

On the recording Sterling states, “It bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast that you’re associating with black people.” He goes on to clarify some ground rules for Stiviano: “You can sleep with [black people]. You can bring them in, you can do whatever you want. The little I ask you is not to promote it on that … and not to bring them to my games.” Sterling has a history of racist behavior and has been sued twice by the federal government for refusing to rent apartments to minorities. He has also been sued by former Clippers executive Elgin Baylor for racial discrimination, though a jury dismissed the case.

The NBA is currently investigating whether the person on the audio recording is in fact Sterling, but the blowback from the recording has already begun. Magic Johnson took to Twitter to express his feelings on the matter.

Civil Rights Leader Jesse Jackson has called on the Clippers players to do something to express their outrage, stating that the players should do something during the game to “show a sign of indignation.”

The hip hop community has also responded to Sterling’s comments. Check Snoop Dogg and Meek Mill’s reaction to the recording below.
