NBA Owner Tells Girlfriend to Stop Associating with Black People Publicly (Audio)

donald-sterlingWow.  That’s about all I can say after listening to the 9 minute argument Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling had with his “girlfriend” that was released by TMZ Sports, where he told her that he didn’t want her associating with black people (or minorities in general) in public.

Which is ironic considering this woman happens to be half Mexican and half black – a fact Mr. Sterling seems completely unaware of before she informs him during the argument.  Sterling seems to have had a particular issue with this woman taking a picture with Magic Johnson and posting it on her Instagram account.

Sterling made comments such as:

“It bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast that you’re associating with black people. Do you have to?”

“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.”

“I’m just saying, in your lousy f*cking Instagrams, you don’t have to have yourself with, walking with black people.”

Here, just listen for yourself:

Outside of the fact that listening to both of these people go back and forth for 9 minutes is utterly painful (both of them sound like complete idiots), the comments made by Donald Sterling on this tape are inexcusable.

I’m not really sure what happens going forward.  Being an owner of an NBA team (though many have accused Sterling of being a racist in the past), and the NBA being predominantly African American, I’m very curious as to how the league will react to these comments being made public.

Honestly, on this tape, Sterling sounds like some deranged old guy who doesn’t even realize where he is.  How he’s an owner of an NBA franchise makes absolutely no sense.

So I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what the NBA does following this public release of these very racist comments made by one of its team owners.  But there’s one thing that’s for certain, there won’t be any, “These comments were taken out of context” defense from Mr. Sterling, because there’s no way anyone could misinterpret the utter ignorance that he displayed during this argument.

    • Suzie

      That was way too funny!

  • Florida Potter

    My advice to her: Take the money and RUN……………..

    • Beatrice Morrow

      She has to marry him first. then dispatch him, to get his money…..

  • Jim Bean

    The young black/Mexican girlfriend prostituting herself for the old wealthy guy’s money however, is not to be questioned.

    • Pipercat


      • Jim Bean

        Yes, on both counts.

      • Pipercat

        Fair enough!

    • glorrierose

      That just makes HIM a john.

      • Jim Bean

        That, too.

    • slugsucker

      Actually, she has a striking similar appearance to some well known transgender porn queens. So what’s “her” little dirty secret?

      • Jim Bean

        And you know this how? 🙂

    • slugsucker

      Also, what “girlfriend” records calls like this and then makes them public, especially through TMZ? Loser celebrity culture, just proves that money is far from everything.

  • Mike Minyen

    If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a thousand times, the ability to make and amass large amounts of money have nothing to do with intellect of even character for that matter.

  • Rahrule

    Why is anyone surprised, this is the sports world.

  • M3ow

    This old man is crazy and a disgusting human being! Most of this argument doesn’t make any sense. She should have punched him and left old wrinkle dick to wither and mumble incoherently to himself.

  • not a pinhead

    if she goes along with it, she is simply his permanently kept harlot. if she breaks up with him, as any self-respecting person should, she will lose her sugar daddy. either way, she’s screwed.

  • glorrierose

    Thing is, this isn’t just about race. It’s about a man thinking he can tell “his woman” with whom she can associate and what pictures she can post on her instagram wall.

    He’s being sexist as hell, as well as racist.

  • Marilyn Olsen Scheffler

    He doesn’t even make any sense when he talks. He obviously cannot make a point that is intelligent and doesn’t deserve to be with anyone in a relationship.

    • DaphneDuquesne

      You’re right, Marilyn. Mr. Sterling makes no sense at all. His comments are full of contradictions and ironies. Indeed, he’s so illogical and petty during this conversation that I wonder whether he even believes what he’s saying.

      Clearly, though, he isn’t accustomed to being with a women has the temerity to question his [stupid] rules. One thing is certain: Mr. Sterling’s so-called GF has royally f***ed him with her recording. I’m guessing that she just wasn’t that into him, in the first place. Now she can write a book and make her own money.

  • D.j. Maverick

    He can’t be dumb…afterall, he is wealthy and therefore MUST have “earned” it all by himself through his hard work and intelligence….oh wait, “if you work hard and play by the rules, you’ll get ahead” is all bull$hit too? Better to be a member of the lucky sperm club or the lucky human club because being in the hard working American club is relatively worthless now….

  • geo wells

    A glimpse into jewish psychology maybe?

    • geo wells

      very conflicted

    • meatwad_SSuppet

      of course

  • txgem

    She needs less plastic surgery and he needs a LOT more. Fat rich bastard + dumb goldigger over-botoxed girl = match made in heaven. Please stay in Los Angeles!!!!

  • Daniel Moore

    I am pretty sure releasing this tape recording will take care of the “relationship” problem.

  • Eg Kbbs

    So he made a fortune off his sports team (in a sport which, incidentally, has black people on its teams. Not to mention the stereotype is that teams are heavily composed of minority players). He takes money from tickets purchased from black people. Don’t know about his team, but it has been common for sports teams to get any number of tax breaks paid in part by black people. Just don’t let him see them.

    • strayaway

      For what it’s worth: In 2013, 76% of NBA players were black, 43% of NBA coaches were black, but only 2% of NBA team majority owners were black. The 2% was Michael Jordan’s investment in a Charlotte team.

  • Kathy Doubleu

    Money makes the world go round… that’s HOW he’s where he is. Hit him in his pockets and girl move on, you don ‘t need dirty cash

  • meatwad_SSuppet

    The stereotypes displayed here are completely founded. See what I did there.

  • Brenden T. Lee

    She is, obviously to me, an intelligent, caring young woman..It’s also obvious she is with him for his money or as a trophy. I’d walk my happy ass away from this f**king prick, Sterling. What a dick.

  • Rick Chesler

    How’d they get the recording?

  • CeeCee

    She does not sound like an idiot. She totally gets it.

  • Live_Peace

    She’s lying. She deserves jail time. Wipe the smug grin off her face forever.

  • auntielib

    The guy is a Democrat supporter and contributor.
    I guess that figures.

  • auntielib

    I notice that Barak spoke out against this fellow. But I missed the part in Barak’s speech where he pointed out that the guy is a Democrat supporter and contributor.
