Clippers Owner Donald Sterling Goes on Racist Rant & Tells Girlfriend Not to Bring Black People to His Games (via TMZ)

– “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)

It’s hard to feel sympathy for the girlfriend because just listening to this is absolutely disgusting; less because of Sterling and more because of V. Stiviano’s lack of pride and integrity. She’s trying to justify that she’s black and Mexican to someone who blatantly disrespectful to those very traits. This is beyond problematic.
