Team owners, especially NBA team owners, should know better.
Not excusing what he said at all, but “girlfriend” Vanessa Stiviano was clearly keeping the conversation going while she knowingly recorded it for future use.
I wonder what could have set this off…?
Just speculating here, but it sounds like a young woman who needed some move-on money and look who she hashtagged…

Hmm… not Fox News?
And as the loony left is trying to tie Donald Sterling to the Republican Party in the Twitterverse, know he’s donated just $6,000, with no activity since the early 2000s. Sterling supported Gray Davis (D) as well as Bill Bradley (D), and since when would the NAACP take money from someone in the GOP?
V. Stiviano is clearly a product of our fame-for-no-reason culture and using “looks” to get rich is a tried-and-true tradition in Hollywood. She will probably have a very hard time finding a rich man now, then again considering her skimpy attire, it’ll be easy to see if she’s wearing a wire.
As for Donald Sterling, stay away from loose women and black people. All these former players and rap artists Tweeting their outrage: I’d love to hear what we’d come up with if we could secretly tape a bunch of black liberals in a room and savor the racism!
Oh, and “TMZ Sports”…?
Wife Of Clippers Owner Sues Woman She Alleges Had Affair With Her Husband
Sounds like Vanessa Stiviano needs a $1.8 million cash infusion, quick.
We do know that the woman on the tape — who we believe released it to TMZ — is the defendant in a lawsuit brought by the Sterling family, alleging that she embezzled more than $1.8 million, who told Mr. Sterling that she would “get even”.

Rochelle Sterling further claims Stiviano had Donald gave her a $1.8M duplex (8837 W 4th St, Los Angeles, CA 90048), $240K in cash, two Bentleys, a Range Rover and a Ferrari. All cars were worth about $500K.
If you listen to parts of the deceptively-recorded audio of Vanessa Stiviano and Donald Sterling, he’s clearly concerned about the pic she posted with Magic Johnson, NOT because he’s black, but because of the “call” he’d get from the “culture” that has problems with blacks.
I think it would be a given to ask Sterling WHO calls him and voices their Beverly Hills-Bel Air-Hollywood snobbish opinions about black people.
Of course, that’s NOT where the media will go because it could be very embarrassing to the Hollywood left for us to know just what they really think about blacks, especially those now piling on in group-outrage.

When Kevin Johnson, the former NBA star who is now mayor of Sacramento, was under investigation last year for alleged financial misdeeds and inappropriate behavior with female students, he had an important ally behind the scenes.Michelle Rhee, the nationally known education reformer who is now head of the Washington, D.C., public schools, had several conversations with a federal inspector general in which she made the case for Johnson and the school he ran in Sacramento, according to the inspector general. Rhee, who had served on the board of the school and is now engaged to marry Johnson, said he was “a good guy.”

Focus, Clippers (they lost that playoff game). Donald Sterling pays them and pays them well. Maybe more than they deserve because we all know professional athletes are model citizens….

Donald Sterling has a higher percentage of employees who run afoul of the law, probably only second to the mob or your local city hall.
After all, it’s not fair to lose an investment because of something that happened in the privacy of their home. Cuban cited the “slippery slope” for a reason.
The list is out there and it’s clear when racism is involved, attention seekers start throwing rocks from their glass balconies. Not a good idea.
This is about Donald Sterling, Vanessa Stiviano and the Los Angeles Clippers; not the Los Angeles Branch of the NAACP and a “black whore”. They SHOULD know the difference….
