So in the world of NBA ownership, you make racist comments about your fans, get caught, and then gain hundreds of millions of dollars from a forced sale.
Basically the Atlanta owner felt the fan base was too black and were scaring away the white fan base and he told his staff to whiten up the music, cheerleaders, and overall appearance of his product.
He has since apologized as racists once they racist ideology surfaces to the public. Mark Cuban jumped out all over this in basic support of Donald Sterling because deep down he knew this boys club of billionaire owners are a bunch of undercover racists.
Funniest guy on the planet.
This took place on 6/24/14 and hopefully these shows will pop up on Comedy Central sooner than later.
Mark Cuban apologizes to the family of Trayvon Martin family but stands by his remarks when talking about race and prejudices. He was a long supporter of Donald Sterling so he is setting the stage to soften the blow on his Jewish brother.
“In hindsight I should have used different examples. I didn’t consider the Trayvon Martin family, and I apologize to them for that. Beyond apologizing to the Martin family, I stand by the words and the substance of the interview,” Cuban wrote. “I think that helping people improve their lives, helping people engage with people they may fear or not understand, and helping people realize that while we all may have our prejudices and bigotries, we have to learn that it’s an issue that we have to control. that it’s part of my responsibility as an entrepreneur to try to solve it.?

Donald Sterling is a racist. I think that is the consensus across the board from anyone with a half a brain who heard the infamous taped conversations between him and V. Stiviano released a couple of weeks ago to TMZ. But listening to his interview with Anderson Cooper, I have come to realize that the media portrayal that he is some senile crazy rich old man, spewing age old thoughts on race, is a facade created by the mainstream media to shield that systematic racism is alive and well in 2014.
What kills me is that he says that this is his first mistake in 35 Years. I guess the housing discrimination lawsuits,sexual harassment charges, and the Elgin Baylor age discrimination stuff doesn’t count.
(CNN) — Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling says he’s sorry, nearly two weeks after the NBA banned him for life and slammed him with a $2.5 million fine for making racist comments.
“I’m a good member who made a mistake and I’m apologizing and I’m asking for forgiveness,” he told CNN’s Anderson Cooper in an exclusive interview set to air on Monday. “Am I entitled to one mistake, am I after 35 years? I mean, I love my league, I love my partners. Am I entitled to one mistake? It’s a terrible mistake, and I’ll never do it again.”
Cha-ching. The new get rich scheme is to obviously get Donald Sterling on the phone and record him and sell it to tabloid websites for a fee. This time its Radar Online who gets the scoop on how Donald Sterling feels after his racist comments were blasted worldwide. When will this fool learn to shut up?
RadarOnline.com has acquired a secret audio recording that reveals Sterling’s true reaction to the scandal for the very first time.
Alternately defiant and heartbroken, Sterling bares his true nature like never before in the shocking tapes, unapologetically insisting he is “not a racist” and will not back down from his position as Clippers owner — despite the public outcry over his vile comments.
“You think I’m a racist?” Sterling angrily asks a long-time friend in the recorded phone conversation. “You think I have anything in the world but love for everybody? You don’t think that! You know I’m not a racist!”
This brother brings light to this situation that is 100% the truth.

Baylor worked for the Clippers for 22 years. The complaint against Sterling and others, which was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court and obtained by The Times, presented Baylor’s version of an eroding relationship between Baylor and Sterling. Baylor contends, among other things, that the Clippers owner had “a pervasive and ongoing racist attitude as expressed to then-NBA player Danny Manning during contract negotiations.”
Asked about the nature of the allegations, Baylor’s lawyer Carl Douglas said in a telephone interview that “everything in the lawsuit is factual. . . . It would not be in Mr. Baylor’s best interest to disclose our trial strategy.”
There is a news conference scheduled for this morning at Douglas’ office in Beverly Hills.
Also named in the lawsuit was the team, the NBA and Clippers President Andy Roeser. Clippers officials said at their game against the Knicks on Wednesday they had not been served with the lawsuit.
“Not having seen the complaint, I cannot comment on Elgin’s specific allegations,” said Robert H. Platt, Clippers general counsel and partner at the law firm Manatt, Phelps & Phillips. “However, I can categorically state that the Clippers always treated Elgin fairly throughout his long tenure with the team. Prior to his decision to leave the team last October, Elgin never raised any claims of unfair treatment. Continue reading
