It seems whenever racism/white supremacy aimed at Blacks is left in the hands of whites to to resolved ,other issues are brought to the forefront and racism/white supremacy is pushed off the stove. Donald Sterling owner of the La Clippers, was recorded by his black/mexican girlfriend saying that he did not want her bringing blacks to his games.
“TMZ Sports has obtained audio of Sterling making the racist declaration during a heated argument on April 9th with V. Stiviano … after she posted a photo on Instagram posing with Magic.
Sterling rails on Stiviano — who ironically is black and Mexican — for putting herself out in public with a black person (she has since taken the pic down). But it doesn’t end there. You have to listen to the audio to fully grasp the magnitude of Sterling’s racist worldview. Among the comments:
— “It bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast that you’re associating with black people. Do you have to?” (3:30)
— “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.” (5:15)
— “I’m just saying, in your lousy f******* Instagrams, you don’t have to have yourself with, walking with black people.” (7:45)
— “…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.” (9:13)
Sterling has a documented history of allegedly racist behavior — he’s been sued twice by the federal government for allegedly refusing to rent apartments to Blacks and Latinos.” (http://www.tmz.com/2014/04/26/donald-sterling-clippers-owner-black-people-racist-audio-magic-johnson/)
Donald Sterling only wants to be around Black people if they’re shooting threes or dunking. This is the audacious hypocrisy of racism. What he has said about Blacks recently is nothing compared to his housing practices, dude was investigated by the DOJ. His racism is nothing new. The NBA, coaches and players knew he was a racist A LONG TIME AGO. Doesn’t that speak volumes of the NBA, coaches and players of the Clippers?
This is not DS’s (Donald Sterling) first time on the RWS train, heck he has been riding first class on the RWS train for years. This dude has a very long history of RWS. TMZ broke the news about his RWS (racism/white supremacy) behavior early this morning. It was all over twitter by 10am, yet every major media market was silent. Not surprised one bit?
The NBA has released a statement essentially saying “we are investigating”. Several players have spoken out and said “They are waiting for the NBA to handle the situation”. Magic Johnson said him and his wife Cookie, will never attend another Clippers game. Arsenio Hall, has stated the same. Kevin Hart has all proclaimed the same. A couple of celebs have voiced their outrage. All of it sounds like Charlie Brown’s teacher…whaa-whaa-whaa.
Here is what is going to happen first, the NBA is going to turn this into an “NBA issue”. Then the players after the NBA resolves the “NBA issue” will agree and support the NBA taking care of an “NBA issue”. ITS NOT AN NBA ISSUE!!!! ITS A BLACK ISSUE!!!! ITS RACISM/WHITE SUPREMACY!!!!
Blacks must lead the charge!!! Players and Coaches must take a firm stand against not only DS but the main issue which is RACISM/WHITE SUPREMACY!!! How do they take a stand? Tell the NBA we are not playing another game until they handle the Donald Sterling situation in a manner in which satisfies them (Blacks). Extreme? Radical? Nope. Reactionary. It is time for Blacks who not only are in positions of power but blacks who are in position of power and whom have been directly affected by the RWS to take a stand?
We Blacks must stop letting the very people who put us in the situations we are in, to get us out.
