It seems the sports news is going nuts over the news that Donald Sterling is bigot. Donald Sterling is the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers. In a recorded conversation with his girlfriend/mistress V.Stiviano, he makes some very bigoted statements. He seemed to be upset that she had pictures on her Instagram account with basketball legend Magic Johnson. The pictures have since been removed. Here’s a bit of what was said:
V: Honey, if it makes you happy, I will remove all of the black people from my Instagram.
DS: You said that before, you said, “I understand.”
V: I DID remove the people that were independently on my Instagram that are black.
DS: Then why did you start saying that you didn’t? You just said that you didn’t remove them. You didn’t remove every—
V: I didn’t remove Matt Kemp and Magic Johnson, but I thought—
V: I thought Matt Kemp is mixed, and he was OK, just like me.
V: He’s lighter and whiter than me.
V: I met his mother.
DS: You think I’m a racist, and wouldn’t—
V: I don’t think you’re a racist.
DS: Yes you do. Yes you do.
V: I think you, you—
DS: Evil heart.
And there is also this baffling exchange about black Jews in Israel:
DS: It’s the world! You go to Israel, the blacks are just treated like dogs.
V: So do you have to treat them like that too?
DS: The white Jews, there’s white Jews and black Jews, do you understand?
V: And are the black Jews less than the white Jews?
DS: A hundred percent, fifty, a hundred percent.
V: And is that right?
DS: It isn’t a question—we don’t evaluate what’s right and wrong, we live in a society. We live in a culture. We have to live within that culture.
V: But shouldn’t we take a stand for what’s wrong? And be the change and the difference?
DS: I don’t want to change the culture, because I can’t. It’s too big and too [unknown].
V: But you can change yourself.
DS: I don’t want to change. If my girl can’t do what I want, I don’t want the girl. I’ll find a girl that will do what I want! Believe me. I thought you were that girl—because I tried to do what you want. But you’re not that girl.
Very disturbing to say the least. So what next? Will people boycott the Clippers games? Will Sterling be forced to sell his team? Will the black players decide not to play for him? Hmmmmm…..I doubt any of this will happen. I think this should be a wake up call to black people in this country and worldwide. Sterling’s black players are basically his million dollar slaves working for their master. And this goes for all professional athletes. Black athletes entertain the mostly white crowd. Most of the owners are white/Jewish and this includes most of the agents as well. This is NOT real news in my opinion. Do you think Sterling is the only bigoted NBA,NHL or NFL owner? If you do,you’re sadly mistaken. H just happen to get recorded. In a system of white supremacy this is to be expected. I know some people are calling this woman a gold digger,skank,whore,seeking revenge,set him up etc. Some of this may be true. Or maybe all of those things are true.I don’t even care about the fact that she is a biracial(black/Mexican) woman. Although it does make you wonder about why she was with a man who had these racist views. To each his/her own right? I just hope this wakes up all the black people who think we live in a post-racial society. Nothing could be further from the truth. And if black players don’t want to play for a racist Jewish bigot—-create your own league. This incident exposes how much black people rely on others to employ us. When we should be creating jobs for ourselves. We need economic empowerment. Then we wouldn’t have to worry about having to play for racists. When I first heard this story I literally yawned. Racist bigots control most of the corporations in this country. So why is this a shocking story in the first place? It’s because society now frowns upon OVERT racism. Calling people racist names is no longer tolerated. But having control over 90% of the wealth in this country is okay I guess. No one ever speaks about economic racism. The fact that black people are slaves because we don’t control or produce anything. Being able to dance,rap,sing,run fast or dunk a basketball will not lead us to liberation. Only hard work,dedication,organization,economic development that WE control will free us. Let’s concentrate on doing that. And not what some over hill bigots think of us. Trust me,he’s not the only one with those sentiments. We got bigger issues to deal with. Let’s keep it moving.
