L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling went on a racist rant to his girlfriend, V. Stiviano, about not bringing black people to his games. Believe it or not, he dissed Magic Johnson in his demand. TMZ had the audio recording published April 25 of what Sterling blasted to Stiviano about.
A bad argument between V. and Donald was caught on tape on April 9. The argument was the subject of an Instagram photo Stiviano posted of her posing with Magic Johnson. She has since removed the photo after the Clippers owner's racist rant.
This particular piece of audio doesn't hide the fact that Sterling has some serious racial issues. He yells at Staviano that it "bothers" him a lot that she wants to "broadcast" herself "associating with black people." He then asks her, "Do you have to?".
Donald told V. that he's fine with her sleeping with black people or doing whatever she wants to with them, but he urged her not to bring them to HIS games. Sterling's racist rant continued that her "f******** Instagrams" don't need to show her "with or walking with black people."
Another quote V. Stiviano got from Donald Sterling in their argument was: "...Don't put him [Magic] on an Instagram for the world to have to see so they have to call me. And don't bring him to my games."
The Clippers owner's attitude towards blacks -- as well as Latinos -- is nothing new. He's been sued for denying apartment rentals to both races in the past. He was also sued by former Clippers executive, Elgin Baylor, for racial discrimination.
News outlets everywhere, including News One, has cited the audio of the Staviano Sterling argument. What makes all of this so confusing is that V. Stiviano is part black and Latino.
The V. Stiviano and Donald Sterling spat was damaging to say the least. The Clippers owner's racist rant will get quite a reaction now that the audio proves what his real views are.
