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.
His corporate record is stellar and he also has a model baby mama, so I think he is perfectly qualified for the position. Looking at his wife Lara Parsons and his mistress MacDella Cooper, this was a no-brainer. If you wanna see what the mother of his love child looks like and a report on his new position hit the jump… Continue reading
