Whatever you think of Sterling's girlfriend, how does that change what he said? Her motives are irrelevant. Don Sterling is a hypocritical, racist creep, who deserves the harshest penalties.

I am totally outraged and incensed by the comments made by Mr. Sterling. I am going to protest, but I will still take a paycheck from the man.
Damned right! He should pay them triple for all the humiliation and embarrassment.

I know it's a bit late, but the remarks were part of a private conversation, and nobody else's business. The "woman" is a she-male who's real name is Vivian.(A common male name in England)
Again, their business.
The Clippers should ignore Sterling, step out on the court of the Staples Center, know that the 19K+ people, black and white, and whatever else, are there to see them play, and not to worry about Sterling said.

Yes, but Don Sterling was proven guilty all by himself when he opened his ugly racist mouth.

They say actions speak louder than words. But yet Sterling's words are being treated like actions.

Where was the appalled righteous indignation crowd when Sterling let go of a 22 year employee & NBA legend or it was proven he was a discriminating landlord. Why did the public still watch the games and the players protest when a retired player/colleague/legend is let go. The players still collected their paychecks and didn't turn shirts inside out. Firing a longtime employee in any company is frowned upon.

ACTIONS speak louder than words.

Strange world. A wire-tapped conversation between two top diplomats over how to put in the proper puppet in a new government (Ukraine) is ridiculed, while this appears a greater outrage than Holocaust.
And the NAACP gave him a prize for not being a racist. Did they take into consideration that he only donated money to DEMOCRATS?
He will still get awards and accolades from them when he hires them to vouch in his racial insensitivity therapy. Ask middle class black people about what scam these guys are. If he had a bottling factory to give away, he would.

Most would likely have a low opinion of you if they could hear recordings of everything you said in private for the purpose of remaining private. That goes for just about anyone. This young girl goaded him into a devolving conversation and then delivered it into the hands of NBA confederates.

You seem like an easy sell. Incredible.

Abraham Lincoln was much more racist than Donald
Sterling and/or Paula Deen.
Shouldn't we tear down the Lincoln Memorial and everything
that has anything to do with him?
Remove him from all history books?
Take down his picture from all schools.

Abraham Lincoln Quote

I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in anyway the social and political equality of the white and black races that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race. I say upon this occasion I do not perceive that because the white man is to have the superior position the negro should be denied everything.

If this ever goes to court I have a strong feeling as a non-lawyer that Sterling would win. His taped comments would not be allowed in most courts since they were obtained illegally. And like Marge Schott with the Reds his racism was well known before this shitstorm started.

The reaction of the NBA may be largely symbolic. He could probably even fight the fine against him.

Is Sterling a disgusting racist? Yes. Does that mean he no longer has constitutional rights? No.

I was thinking, much the same thing....Law Enforcement universally know, that recording is the plague....This guy is a creep, but when social engineering, terminal outrage and mob behavior take forefront....Justice is often the casualty....
