Over the weekend TMZ Sports broke the story of LA Clippers owner and world-class fuckhead Donald Sterling getting caught on audio recording by his then girlfriend V. Stiviano in one of the strangest racist arguments ever secretly recorded by a jilted lover. The main crux of his argument, if I’m interpreting this nauseatingly passive racist viewpoint correctly, is that people will have a hard time forgetting that she is mixed race if she’s constantly hanging out with her non-white friends, especially publicly and of all places at HIS team’s games. No, really.

Did you listen to all that? No? That’s fine, I’ll go ahead and break it down for you. Rich white asshat, Donald Sterling, who has a long and extremely well documented history of racist behavior (Seriously, you’re going to want click that link.), just basically spelled out the new racist agenda in America. Almost weekly, we get introduced to a new incredulous bigot who just doesn’t understand why these minorities can’t shut up about the centuries of oppression they’ve endured. There used to be firehoses and police dogs to handle this sort of thing for them, but now, in Obama’s new liberal PC America, that just won’t fly. Now, there’s a quieter, more insidious way to systematically stifle poor minorities with legal maneuverings all while publicly trying to push the idea that racism is over. But this is the tradeoff we’re all silently making for the sake of personal comfort. Donald Sterling wanting his biracial girlfriend to deny her heritage is the same as your sweet old granny who still says “coloreds.” It’s the same as a joke in the break room you pretend to ignore for fear of losing your job. It’s the same as the frown and eyeroll from someone at the mention of Obamacare who couldn’t begin to explain one actual reform that bill made. Thankfully the Internet is starting to do the job of flushing this type of shit out into daylight, so the equally ignorant viewpoints of “Oh well, that’s just that one rich white guy’s opinion,” or “Oh, well maybe that was taken out of context,” can finally be exposed for the dickless, enabling and damaging mindsets they truly are.

And now I negate my entire argument by embedding a pic of Sterling gently caressing the chin of Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. I can’t help myself. It’s my gift, my curse:

  1. rican

    A Democrat…

    • “We know he’s a Democrat because in the last 25 years he made exactly two contributions to Democratic candidates. That’s how we know. Those two things.” – conservatives on the Internet

      One of those contributions was to Bill Bradley in 1989 (probably a basketball thing), the other was to Gray Davis in 2002 (probably an influence thing).

      • National Review’s acknowledgement of the two donations was due to Democratic attempts to label Sterling a Republican, citing another man entirely named who is also named Donald Sterling.

      • Oh, well, I guess that makes it all right for rican and all the other conservatives to call Sterling a Democrat.

      • No, just to point out the irony of the reality of the matter, which was that the few, in reality probably meaningless contributions he made were, in fact, to Democrats. It wouldn’t have happened if they hadn’t tried to lie about it in the first place and harness the situation for political reasons, now would it?

      • So it’s okay for people like rican to do the same, to try to harness the situation for political reasons? I pointed out what I did because people coming to this page probably don’t know the whole Democrat/Republican backstory and I wanted to set the record straight.

        As for your claim of “Democratic attempts to label Sterling a Republican” that “they…tried to lie about,” etc., the National Review’s citation of commentators who tried to link Sterling to the GOP apparently consists of one (since removed) thread from the New England Patriots fan message boards. Is that where the Democrat conspiracies occur now? NFL fan pages?

      • As I said: I don’t think his political affiliations matter; such contributions are meaningless to a man his position, in terms of truly being able to ascertain political leanings. At his level, such donations are attempts to buy influence, not affect change. There are bigots on both sides of the fence. Hell, the reality is that people like Sterling tend to donate to both sides — I’m surprised he donated so little, but I won’t be surprised if down the line we learn of more donations, and they could well be all over the political map. You’re right in that rican’s comment was pointless.

      • Mitch

        If he had made those two political donations over 20 years to Republicans, you would be be screaming bloody murder and calling for his head on a stick.

        Something that Democrats love to ignore is the fact that the KKK was the militant wing of the Democratic party and that it was the Republican north that fought the Democratic south and ended slavery.

        Of course, that means nothing when you subscribe to revisionist history. I won’t even go into how the Democrats have screwed the black man into oblivion using his own vote.

      • You are absolutely right that it was the Republican north that fought the Democratic south over ending slavery. ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY YEARS AGO. Things have changed since then.

        Also, love the part about how “Democrats have screwed the black man into oblivion using his own vote.” Some 90-95% of African-Americans vote Democratic, but nahhhhh, you know better than all of them. Or is that why Republicans are trying to disenfranchise blacks from voting—to save them from themselves?

      • Mitch

        You’re right, things have changed in the last 150 years.

        Gangs of African Americans can engage in racially motivated violence (knock out game anyone?) against non-African Americans and not fear prosecution for the act.

        And your statement “Some 90-95% of African-Americans vote Democratic” is absolutely correct. In fact BHO received over 100% of the black vote according to many reporting precincts. If whites voted 95% for a white candidate you would be playing the race card over it but according to you when blacks vote along racial lines it’s because of their superior intellect.

        The truth of the matter is that blacks and poor whites on welfare vote for whoever is going to keep the gravy train flowing. Too bad the money has run way out to keep that train filled to the brim so I hope you have a plan B waiting in the wings because socialism is just awesome until you run out of other peoples money.

      • You cannot possibly be as dipshitted as this post you just made.
        Pick an actual book sometime and turn of Fox news moron.

      • Revisionist history is believing Reagan was a good president dumbass.
        Southern strategy ring a bell… no of course not because house plants are smarter than your dipshitted self.

      • rican

        TomFrank’s ghost, just pointing out the irony of it all. If he were Republican Fish would’ve inserted the usual liberal bullshit implying racism is exclusive to the Republicans. But since he is not, I’m enjoying the hissy fits after my comment.

      • “But since he is not [Republican]…”

        Actually, no one’s established Sterling’s party affiliation yet, so once again, you’re getting the facts wrong.

    • Is he? I guess that means all the right wingers who defended Paula Deen won’t say anything.

    • Leftcoastnative

      The question shouldn’t be whether there are racists in the democrats party. (Of course there are). That’s just a distraction and a deflection from the gist of the issue.The real, substantive questions that need to be asked/answered are:

      (1) Which party is pursuing policies that reduce the economic well being of minorities? (i.e. the Ryan Budget)

      (2) Which party ignorantly places blame for soaring social program costs on inner city minorities and their “culture”, when statistics clearly show that the bulk of those payments go to low income, rural whites and retirees of all races?

      (3) Which party is incessantly trying to pass legislation that unfairly and illegally impinges on the rights of minority groups and women?

      (4) Which party is fighting against those racist, homophobic and militantly misosgynistic policies?

      • None of this political crap is “the real question”? The real question is what does the new commissioner do about one of his team owners?

        Not everything has to have a political slant, especially considering it’s all outrage by numbers now and the two sides are easily predictable. Christ, I’m a lefty and even I’m tired of the “Republicans voters are dumb, democrat voters are S-M-R-T.”

    • The Democrat Party is the Party of Slavery – always has been. The fact that this guy is a Democrat is, of course, not surprising. Hell, the Dems had a frigging Grand Kleagle as one of their highest ranking members for a looooooong time.

      • Please list all the Republican contributions to the civil rights movement in the past few decades. Take your time.

      • The Civil Rights bill signed into law by Johnson was passed by Republicans in Congress; Democrats voted against it including Al Gore’s daddy. The only serving KKK member in the Senate was Democrat Robert KKK Byrd.

      • The Civil Rights bill signed into law by Johnson was passed by Republicans in Congress; Democrats voted against it…

        Republicans controlled Congress in 1964? Try again. Southern Democrats voted against the Civil Rights Act. You know who else voted against the Civil Rights Act? Southern Republicans. (Yes, there were a few.) Wide majorities in both parties passed the Civil Rights Act. And Johnson, a Democrat, didn’t just sign it into law—he pushed for it vigorously, despite being told that it would cost him the South, and possibly victory, in the 1964 presidential election.

        Sure enough, it did cost him part of the South that year when the Republicans nominated for president Barry Goldwater, one of only six of the party’s Senators to vote against the Civil Rights Act. That was also the year when Strom Thurmond switched to the Republican Party; previously, in 1948, Thurmond (temporarily) broke with the Democrats over Harry Truman’s civil rights platform and ran for President himself.

        What happened to the racist Southern Democrats of yesteryear? They mostly became the Southern Republicans of today. From Goldwater to Nixon’s Southern Strategy to Jesse Helms to the Willie Horton ad to Trent Lott’s nostalgic support for Thurmond’s segregationist candidacy to Rand Paul’s opposition to the Civil Rights Act, and a thousand other things in between.

        But you keep hanging on to Robert Byrd and the few years in the 1940s he spent in the Klan (but not the 60 years he spent apologizing for it). Yeah, that more than balances things out.

      • I like how you liberal fucks rewrite history; I don’t give a fuck what party this asshole is in I’m replying to a comment on what has Republicans don’t for Civil Rights I answered it Dickhead. Now suck my American rightwing dick.

      • Just FYI – June 10 1964, Everett Dirksen (R-IL), the Republican Leader in the U.S. Senate, condemned the Democrats’ 57-day filibuster against the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Leading the Democrats in their opposition to civil rights for African-Americans was Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV). Byrd, who got into politics as a recruiter for the Ku Klux Klan, spoke against the bill for fourteen straight hours. Democrats still call Robert Byrd “the conscience of the Senate.”

        In his speech, Senator Dirksen called on the Democrats to end their filibuster and accept racial equality.

      • He is a registered republican since 1998 is google so effing difficult for you dumbass fox bots.

    • “Update: Now comes the utterly shocking news that despite his campaign donations to the contrary, Sterling is—sit down—a registered Republican. The Los Angeles Times’s Michael Hiltzik tweeted as much this morning, and I confirmed through a source that a Donald T. Sterling who lives in Beverly Hills and was born on April 26, 1934 is indeed a registered Republican voter in L.A. County.”

      • I’m sure everyone here who called Sterling a Democrat based on flimsy evidence will return out of contrition to post comments apologizing for their rush to judgment, and promising not to trust their extreme right-wing sources so intuitively in the future.

        That’s how arguments on the Internet end, right?

      • All arguments on the Internet are closely based on “Waiting for Godot” if you want to know the truth.

        Full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

      • That “full of sound and fury” line is from Waiting for Godot? You sure of that?

      • Out, out, brief candle!
        Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
        That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
        And then is heard no more. It is a tale
        Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury
        Signifying nothing. — Macbeth (Act 5, Scene 5, lines 17-28)

  2. Cock Dr

    The d*ckbag didn’t conveniently drop dead over the weekend so the solution I guess is that no one goes to Clippers games anymore as long as he’s associated with the team.
    Feel bad for the players and other employees.

  3. How long before some ass hat goes on a rant about “reverse racism”?

  4. Deacon Jones

    Man, what a gold digging whore..
    Over 100 hours of taped conversations?!

    “Ya can’t make a ho a housewife!”

    • No kidding. Taping conversations with a wealthy sugar daddy is just a the gold-digger equivalent of an insurance policy.

    • oh i know

      So true! She apparently didn’t care what his views were when she was at Hermes or Chanel? Wonder if he has a black American Express card?? These 2 deserve each other…..

    • Jesse

      She’s an attention ho. She’s baiting him.
      He is setup by this snake.
      It seems she purposely did those things to make him jealous in order to get him to talk that way.
      He didn’t deserve to get secretly recorded
      How many folks of any ethnicity have private conversations
      and if revealed would shock people.

      • Yes, it’s really hard to make another woman your housewife when you already have one. The Sterlings (married 50 years) are racist slumlords, but what enrages you guys is that his trashy piece-on-the-side secretly recorded conversations? Yes, it’s an awful thing to do, but does a man really expect decorum from a mistress 60 years his junior who sleeps with him for sports cars?

  5. BlinkyTheFish

    Maybe he and Paula Deen can go on the road as some sort of old timey racist vaudeville duo.

    • JC

      “Donny? This is Paula. I got a whole troupe o’ dancin’ Negroes ready for the show! You just bring your wetback mongrel girlfriend and summa her people to clean up afterwards. Yee haw!”

  6. Judge Chamberlain Haller

    People used to tell me it was embarrassing for me to be a Clippers fan due to their history of futility. Now they tell me it is embarrassing solely cause we have the worst owner in the history of the NBA.

  7. Paula Deen

    If anyone is selling their Clippers season tickets, please let me know.

  8. arty

    He has the right to say whatever he wants in the privacy of his own home. Even if he wasn’t in his home um…. hello? Freedom of speech???

    I personally don’t see what the big hubbub is over as his comments seemed to be fairly benign. She signed up for this “arrangement” and is being compensated for it handsomely. Leave it to the left to spearhead the public lynching of a man who has contributed a great deal to his community. I’ve been called worse picking up my kids at school

    • Slash

      Pretty sure this is a troll, but:

      Freedom to speak doesn’t mean freedom from criticism. You moron.

      • JC

        The lack of education on the First Amendment (and most other things) in the U.S. makes me weep for the future.

        Although, to be fair, every time some moron says “U KANT CRITISIZE HIM BECUZ FREEDUM OF SPEECH!” I get a giggle imagining that same person storming into the boss’s office, yelling racist/sexist/whatever insults, and then being genuinely surprised and confused about being fired, furriowng their brows in a futile attempt to understand.

    • This is probably just the crazy liberal in me, but it seems his right to freedom of speech ends right around the time he starts using it to try and dictate who can go where based on the color of their skin.

      • Actually, his freedom of speech ends with NBA rules that penalize owners for actions or comments that are considered “detrimental to the league.” Most major sports leagues have stipulations like this; it’s how Major League Baseball was able to suspend Cincinnati Reds owner Marge Schott from day-to-day operations for an entire season 20 years ago after her own history of racist comments were made public.

    • @arty – if you don’t understand what the First Amendment says or means, you shouldn’t refer to it in your argument. The First Amendment (the part about freedom of speech anyway) says that THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT may not dictate what you can or cannot say, and it was later interpreted by the Supreme Court to apply to state and local governments as well. It has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with what people say among themselves. That is left to the court of public opinion, not the government. So no, the First Amendment does not protect Sterling from the NBA investigating him, or his girlfriend recording his conversations, or the public demanding that he be removed from team ownership.

    • I’d say that the fact that he hasn’t been arrested for his incredibly offensive words means his freedom of speech has been perfectly respected.

      You do understand the bill of rights protects us from government persecution right? It’s not a magic suit of armor that prevents our actions from having consequences.

    • Here’s how the First Amendment works:

      Mr. Sterling or Mel Gibson or anybody can call black people and Jews names.

      And the rest of us can call them shitbags for doing it.

      • Mel Gibson (listening to the offending recording): C’mon Sterling, you don’t have to put up with that shit,especially from a cunt! Slap the shit out of her. Kick her a few times and make her suck your dick…”

  9. Slash

    Maybe biracial hot girls could advance their cause by not fucking rich old white racists. Just sayin’.

    Having said that, yeah, he’s a giant asshole. What a shock, a rich white old guy who’s also a fucking racist douchebag.

    • She’s also nowhere near hot. She’s actually kind of gross. That weird face of hers is a turnoff.

    • oh i know

      YES! I totally agree–except for the”Hot” part–He is a total dick but I’m sure he never pretended to be anything other than that, she knew what she was getting into. Check her Instagram account, she was paid well for her services.

  10. I’m interested to see how this latest embarrassment plays out now that David Stern isn’t the commissioner anymore. He seemed to turn a blind eye to Sterling’s questionable behavior for years. It’s nice to see Elgin Baylor get a little bit of public vindication, too.

    I was glad the announcers didn’t spend the entire Sunday game talking about it, although any game called by Jeff Van Gundy gets mostly put on mute anyway, so maybe they did.

  11. God almighty, that conversation between the old bastard and his crazy gold-digger girlfriend was about the stupidest thing I’ve heard… well, this morning, anyways.

  12. Facts_

    Donald Sterling was an Obama 2008 bundler and raised almost $750k for Obama.

  13. I agree with this man.

    • While I’m not sure I agree with him 100%, he raises interesting points. We all have biases and prejudices, and to say anything different is self-delusion or outright lies – where the rubber meets the road and things become “racist” is where opportunities are denied to people solely on their race. I think the word racism has come to be a catch-all term which ultimately does more to fuel the argument than to focus the conversation.

    • Stryfe

      YouTube is inundated with misogynistic and homophobic commentaries from angry black men. Throw this Uncle Tom on the list as well.

  14. Linda

    Who cares what political party this guy hails from? Nothing changes the fact that he is a disgusting piece of shit. First of all, he is old and gross with a much younger girlfriend who is with him because of his money and her incredibly low self esteem [although kudos to her for catching his douchery on tape]. So right off, we know this guy is a clueless motherfucker. The fact that he is still thinking, much less talking, this racist shit should surprise no one, yet I was still listening with jaw dropped. Fish is right, this type of situation is exactly what makes the internet awesome. This guys ass will rightfully get nailed to the while, at least publicly. Problem is we all have such short attention spans, by tomorrow another story will have distracted us. But for today, he’s getting his.

  15. AC

    Maaaaan. I’m a feminist who actually reads The Superficial “for the articles” and I especially LOVE breakdowns like this one, but when I get to the comments section, even I wanna say “just bring on the tittehs.”

  16. dan

    new week, new race hustle’ing comments

    carry on folks

    V Stiviano One day I will look back at Instagram & say,”I’ve been there & I’ve done that.” I do it all. Artist,Lover,Writer,Chef,Poet, Stylist, Philanthropist

    She forgot to add “bangs racist douchebags for money”

    How does spending rich guys money count as philanthropy?

  18. cant wait to see this pos sit courtside at his teams next game.

  19. laughinggrizzley

    Oh the irony, a money grubbing LA whore, who embezzled $2mil, getting back at her racist, bible thumping, gun totin, tea baggin, boyfriend…
    Wait, he a leftist loon Democratic fondler, I mean bundler. So it isn’t so! That alright, we have a homo sexual, Muslim, communist, African (as we know his ancestor never felt the sting of a whip) “with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one” (Hary Reid, yea, no racism on the Left). HAHAHAHAHAHHAAH

    • Mitch

      You forgot to mention Hillary’s negro dialect that she pulled out of her ass in 2008. Imagine if a white male presidential candidate pulled this kind of shit.

  20. ManWhoHasSeenAVagina

    Why is everyone ignoring the real issue here? Who cares if he doesn’t want his gold-digging girlfriend advertising her associations with blacks?

    The real issue is that he said she can bring blacks home and have sex with them, he just doesn’t want her advertising that. The dude just doesn’t want people knowing he’s a cuckold.

    Also, see above for Deacon Jones’ comment about all the hours of tape she has.

  21. cc

    Not to make light of a serious discussion, but did anyone watch the Ducks/Stars game? That was awesome.

  22. Listening to his arguments to Miss V., you can hear his true racist colors come out. But when you read between the lines, this is also about an incredibly insecure man who is fearful of some younger stud taking away his trophy girlfriend. Even his billion dollar bank account cannot provide him enough confidence and swagger to fathom a scenario of some black stud taking his girl from him. He’s a goddamn billionaire and he does not have the ability to bounce back and find another young, hot piece of ass? His penis must be really, really tiny.

    • Mike Walker

      He used to take women into the locker room and say “look at those beautiful black bodies.” On the tape, he tells his girlfriend “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 don’t see sexual insecurity as the overriding source of his racial issues. He probably doesn’t even fuck her anyway.

      • Don’t disagree with you because what the fuck do I really know what’s in another man’s heart and mind. But I hear a lot of people say things in which they mean opposite of what they say. For example, an ex-girlfriend use to say, “sure, go out and have fun with your friends tonight, I’ll be fine at home… alone.” When I know goddamn well, she is daring me to go out and is in fact telling me NOT to go out. That’s the vibe I get from Sterling when he says go ahead and fuck other guys. But I think you’re right after listening again.

  23. ace11

    If Blacks feel so strongly..then why do his players take his money?

  24. mark

    he is obviously a dick and she looks like she used to have one. pretty certain that that, “v.” once stood for vince. or victor.

    • annabanana

      That’s what I’ve been saying ever since I saw her picture. She may be a “she” now, but there’s NO WAY she started out as one.!

  25. Ez

    Yall making too big a deal outta this. Black rappers say kill white folk all the time and we keep buying their shit. If you dont like this owner, support someone else.

  26. But…wouldn’t she look whiter, or Asian-er, if she was standing next to a black guy? Hell, if he put her next to Manute Bol you’d think she was a friggin’ albino.

  27. mary

    the sad part is even though we are all outraged
    1. there will be another racist expose
    2. Stirling will still be rich while we are trying to pay our car note

  28. Griefer

    Is Sterling still receiving his NAACP award?

  29. Sloppy Redneck

    As a Redneck l approve of his message ..

  30. Blah blah blah.

    I don’t care if this man is a Democrat or a Republican.

    I do care that he is an unreconstructed racist and apparently views the black men who basketball as subhuman.

    But just to show you the kind of world we live in: if the NBA forces Mr. Sterling to sell the Clippers, he’ll make a profit of close to a billion dollars.

    NBA: “Here’s your punishment: a billion dollars! Also, you have to hire a new hooker!”

    Sterling: “You guys are tough but fair.”

    Unfortunately I can’t boycott basketball because I never watched it, not when when I was a student at UC Berkeley. Never saw the point to the game.

    • The point to the game is to get a ball to go through a hoop. This is done by people on what are known as “teams” and by passing the ball around the…

  31. Hey Uncle Phil, I think I want to go and be a bear with you now.

  32. thatitchyoucantscratch

    Why is racism seen as such a moral flaw, worse than being a gold digging cunt who secretly and illegally records somebody in order to annihilate them?

    • mark

      yeah. she’s an awful and woeful degenerate too. they’re both horrible examples of humanity and don’t deserve anything good in life. and one more thing…”she” was once a “he”. maybe he’s into that thing/maybe he doesn’t know but at one point in the past, she had a wiener. blagh…she’s an ugly gold-digger!

      BUT SEE, THOSE TEAMS DON’T TREAT MINORITIES LIK- oh, sorry that was rude of me. I’ll try not to shout.

      But see, those teams don’t treat minorities like shit, or try to keep them out of their stadia–not even the American Indians you say they oppress/offend. The Cleveland Indians were named to honor their American Indian players, as any Tribe fan in Cleveland could tell you, or probably any of the dozens of people I’ve seen on the Pueblos or on the Navajo res wearing Wahoo hats.

      As for names like “Eskimos” and “Redskins,” I don’t know why people support continuing to use a racial slur for a team name. I really don’t want to defend it or judge it. Maybe a Redskins fan could offer some insight?

      Aside from the Redskins name though, ours is a heritage of cultural embrace, while this fucker actually understands the tragic stigma laid against even our society’s most admirable black people–if you listen again, you’ll see he admits as much–and then encourages his mistress to conform to that trend. So fuck this guy for his pro-discrimination attitude, but long live Chief Wahoo and the Tribe, for honoring those who, as you pointed out, lived here first.

  34. Rainbow Ray

    I agree. The indians might have to get violent like the blacks did. Its the only way they finally got respect. Violence scares the whites.

  35. 33-D. Cudi-Blackstone

    This guy doesn’t even deserve to be a owner of L.A Clippers due to this alleged racist remarks, it’s been slammed in top story 3 straight days now.

  36. Racism is like totally bad you guyz, like world peace and stuff you guyz.

    Fish is such a politically correct tool, give me a fucking break.

    • “Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and promoted by mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of shit by the clean end.”

  37. right

    The NBA will never prevail. You can’t force sale of property based on freedom of speech. The 1st amendment will survive intact. The hoe that illegally recorded him looks like a tranny.

  38. I’m sorry, but that is not Donald Sterling. It’s Mickey Rourke pretending to be Donald Sterling.

  39. Buttplug

    He should be given a break just for appearing in public with that nasty looking bitch.
