The L.A. Clippers have already showed they're content to be Sterling's performing monkeys by continuing to play so I could not care less. .

Considering how much his "slaves" are paid I don't think it matters. That includes the woman who released the recordings too. I'm sure she's was paid well for services performed too.

Al Sharpton got a pass many years ago on the racist stunt he tried ,trying to stir up some crap.Nobody held him accountable blaming whites on a incident he perpatrated,about a retarded girl who was supposedly attacked by some whites.Jackson was heard calling "Jews" himmies,he wasn't asked to step down from his Rev,ship..Racism is business,and they're always looking for some "white" guy to say something,but Blacks get a pass everytime..Who really cares,between the phrases Gay,and Racism I get tired of the Left abusing our mentality over and over with these tricks to keep us at each other,and I know Obama would love a revolution of some sorts to happen to keep his a$$ in office,thats how Marxist think.......

Not surprising Female is up on this. The queen of the low info crowd appears to be up on pop culture current events while not having a clue as to what is going on in the Ukraine, the US economy or how many people are without a job and losing their home.

By now, I’m sure you have heard a tape recently leaked to TMZ and Deadspin, or read a transcript of the recorded conversation, in which an unknown man condemns his girlfriend for associating with black people. It is, in fact, the top story in the news as we speak. However, at this early juncture, we must keep in mind that the the recording of this anonymous individual remains unauthenticated. But while it is as yet impossible to say who that voice actually belongs to, I have to admit that the person in question certainly made some compelling points.

The bottom line is that there’s a significant chance we may never know with certainty the identity of the man in that recording. Audio forensics is an imprecise field and the quality of the recording is not superb. However, the one thing we can say with certitude about that anonymous voice is that it is a voice of reason. Indeed, within moments of listening to the audio, I was struck by the speaker’s commanding tone and his courage to speak difficult truths.

I must say, it is hard to listen to this man’s words and not be left in a state of awe at his evident intelligence and his unassailable rationale.

Though it is not always easy to understand the voices amid the crackling and hissing of the tape—which, again, will likely render it impossible to ever positively identify the speaker—I nevertheless found myself convinced by the carefully elucidated and levelheaded thesis that African-Americans are, in many senses, individuals who should be treated as simple commodities in a marketplace to be used for one’s own monetary benefit. Unfortunately, it appears we likely will never be able to properly attribute such a well-constructed argument for a tiered class system among races—a hierarchy, if you will—to its rightful owner. And that’s a terrible pity.

I would probably say it was when I heard this voice of logic flatly state that black Jews are rightfully treated like dogs that I first thought to myself,“This mystery man sounds like he knows what he’s talking about!” When you listen, what you’re left with more than anything is a sense that these are the words of a sage elder. Whoever he is, and wherever he may be, I’d go so far as to wager he’s been around long enough and seen so much with his observant eyes to know that there are indeed certain social rules we cannot change, and should never even try to change, and that one of those rules prohibits whites from being seen with blacks in public. This is sound reasoning from a clearly one-of-a-kind intelligence, and I for one am deeply moved by his illuminating words.

For all we know, he may be—and I’m speaking purely hypothetically here—a very successful real estate developer just trying to maintain respect and standing amongst his peers. Who’s to say? In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if this unknown individual, based on the solidity of his reasoning contained in this tape, also advocated maintaining property values by, say, cleverly arranging his rental process such that black families and families with children could not live in his buildings.

Now, that’s exceptionally inventive and sensible if you ask me.

And, while we can only go by what we hear on this recording, it certainly sounds like he had his female interlocutor’s best interests at heart when he very patiently and magnanimously told her she could sleep with men of whatever race she wanted so long as she kept them off her Instagram and away from his business. By that measure, this man is not only remarkably knowledgeable, but also exceedingly generous. In fact, I listened several times and I cannot believe how inflexible this anonymous woman remained even when he compromised and permitted her to associate with light-skinned blacks like Matt Kemp despite how much—and I’m guessing here—it likely killed him inside.

The right is racist starting with their policies.

When someone thinks that the only way they can achieve in this world is by pushing someone else back with lies and promoting racism, they are nothing more than a bully with no respect or or caring of another human being. They are the trash.

Now the POTUS has weighed in on this! So while Crimea and the Ukraine are being invaded despite a treaty Clinton signed saying we would if they disarmed. Despite millions dependent on the state for food and losing their home due to long term unemployment. And despite continually lying to the American people when he was told many times that was not the factual.

I for one could care less what Sterling says but I sure would like for Oblamo to lead this country. My are we f ucked!

Well it should be very interesting to find out who was pointing that gun.
