|Just how much of this is out of|
context ? 81 year old billionaire
sleeping with a 31 year old woman.
Surprised? I'm not.We have not figured out that in the Sports world there are two things underneath : Sexism and Racism ,The truth is racism is alive and well in america.. people love to deny this but it has been around since the beginning and from the looks of it is not going anywhere anytime soon. It's a big deal when some body stupid says something ridiculous . YES, IT's TAKEN OUT OF CONTEXT BY THE WHOLE MEDIA! What a sad state of affairs we live in that this is , and something () the president had to "weigh in on" after being asked about it 75,000 times. Los Angeles Clippers’ sponsors are pulling out after an alleged recording of owner ***Donald Sterling in a racist rant went public, and the team’s highly-respected coach hinted he may head for the door once the season ends. The controversy comes as the team is enjoying its best season ever, winning 57 games in the regular season and currently tied up in the of the playoffs. But the firestorm over an alleged lecture the 81-year-old billionaire gave his ## 31-year-old girlfriend for associating with African-Americans has cast a pall over the team. On Monday, giant CarMax ended its relationship with the team after nine years In our politically correct nation , you can't say dribble , I guess you are labeled either way Does he not have the right to his opinions about his girlfriend and the company she keeps? If a guy tells his ^^girlfriend to stop taking pictures and hanging out with another race, should he lose his job? His house? His business? Like it or not, not everyone is okay with inter-racial stuff......Look at his team makeup! He already received one NAACP Achievement Award and was due to get another one!This fallout is all political correctness posturing, nothing more......
NOTES AND COMMENTS:
*** The "purported racist rant " : TMZ did not explain how it obtained the recording, which it says is from April 9. So here is what the recording said “Why are you taking pictures with minorities? Why?” Sterling purportedly said to his girlfriend in the recording. “It bothers me a lot that you want to ... broadcast that you’re associating with black people. Do you have to?” “I want you to love them, privately.... But why publicize it on Instagram and why bring it to my games?” the recording continued. When I read what was said as well as heard it and about the entire "controversy" online I came to the conclusion that it really was not racist at all. To me it appeared like he was telling his mistress not to get defensive when people criticize her for not having pictures with blacks and other minorities on her instagram and twitter account and not to take pictures with these types of people as an obvious effort to prove that she is not a racist. He is basically telling her that whether she loves them or hates them, keep her feelings about them private. When these types of women take pictures with black celebrities TMZ and other idiots like them start spreading rumors about them dating and fing them as a reason. Maybe he does not want people thinking his woman is cheating on him with Magic Johnson or any other so called "Minority" (a racist label made to suggest a black or hispanic has a handicap by default) for that matter. ## What makes this bizarre is that Stiviano herself is black and Mexican, a fact that she reminds Sterling of during their argument. The situation is otherworldly, in that Sterling seems not to have noticed that his own girlfriend is black. The more you learn about the story, the stranger it gets. If you listen to the tapes, which have been made public by TMZ and Deadspin, it is hard to make sense of them. Sterling doesn’t want Stiviano to put up photos of herself with African-Americans on Instagram or bring them with her to Los Angeles Clippers games. He says he doesn’t care if she associates or sleeps with black people, just don’t put them up on Instagram. An odd distinction! His request was motivated, evidently, by the fact that one or more of Sterling’s friends called him to comment on the Instagram photos. While Sterling never says this, reading between the lines it appears that someone must have teased him about his mistress consorting with blacks. () The Most ludicrous comment came from the President himself Obama naturally used the opportunity to make a political point:President Obama on Sunday described comments reportedly made by the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers as “incredibly offensive racist statements,” before casting them as part of a continuing legacy of slavery and segregation that Americans must vigilantly fight. …“The United States continues to wrestle with the legacy of race and slavery and segregation, that’s still there, the vestiges of discrimination,” Obama said during a news conference in Malaysia, where he was traveling. ^^ . Sterling's girlfriend is a bit of a mystery , she seems nothing more than a gold-digger who has hitched on a 81 year old man , and has been cheating on him, yes she is a stunner, but there is no way to suspect she has had numerous affairs , The question is: Where are the imprints of the photo with Magic Johnson that so offended Sterling that he launched into the alleged racist rant that has him in so much today?From her first Instagram photo posted 13 months ago, with Stiviano asking of friends, “Where are they when you need them?” to the photo of Akon three weeks ago in the (sans Stiviano) to the photo posted 22 hours ago now collecting comments aplenty on Instagram, Stiviano’s feed shows nary a photo of Magic Johnson in the lot of pics of the beauty. Indeed, the reports that claim it was deleted must've been true.Stivianio's Instagram following has grown, however, from the 114,564 followers she had hours ago to the 121,856 followers she now enjoys. Expect that following to grow greatly as more news of this controversy continues, and folks who haven’t yet jumped on IG now set up their accounts and make Stiviano the first person they begin to follow.Meanwhile, reports of Sterling’s family claiming his girlfriend released the racist audio argument due to an act of vengeance to their $1.8 million embezzlement claims are also heating up the “Interwebs” – but not as much as her Instagram account.
