Democrat Donor Donald Sterling Caught on Tape Spewing Racist Comments

Posted by Jim Hoft on Saturday, April 26, 2014, 4:24 PM



L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling told his GF he does NOT want her bringing black people to his games … including Magic Johnson … and it’s ALL on tape.

TMZ Sports has obtained audio of Sterling making the racist declaration during a heated argument on April 9th with V. Stiviano … after she posted a photo on Instagram posing with Magic.

Sterling rails on Stiviano — who ironically is black and Mexican — for putting herself out in public with a black person (she has since taken the pic down). But it doesn’t end there. You have to listen to the audio to fully grasp the magnitude of Sterling’s racist worldview. Among the comments:

– “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)

Sterling has a documented history of allegedly racist behavior — he’s been sued twice by the federal government for allegedly refusing to rent apartments to Blacks and Latinos.

Before she posted the photo that started a race war withDonald Sterling, his then-girlfriend V. Stiviano flooded the web with scorchin’ hot photos showing off the perks of dating an NBA owner.

We broke the story … Sterling blasted Stiviano for posting a picture of herself on Instagram posing with Magic Johnson. Sterling told her not to be seen with black people and not to bring them to his games.

Now, we’ve learned … Stiviano is a model in her young-20s … who LOOOVES posting hot bikini pics of herself. She also loved posting pics at Clippers games.

Well, she used to anyway … *No word if her globetrotting lifestyle will come to an end after the fight that ensued with Sterling — but at least, she’ll always have the photos.*



Magic Johnson blasts Donald Sterling



BY BILL PLASCHKE April 26, 2014, 7:15 p.m.

An Instagram photo of Magic Johnson posing with Donald Sterling's female friend V. Stiviano has become a historical document.

After TMZ released unverified audio of Sterling purportedly making racist comments about the photo, it will be the last time anyone will see Johnson at a Clippers game at Staples Center.

"I will never again set foot in Staples Center when the Clippers are playing," Johnson said Saturday afternoon in a phone interview. "I know where I'm not wanted."

Johnson was furious upon hearing the comments, which were aimed at all African Americans, and is calling upon the NBA to take serious action that could include stripping Sterling of his ownership duties.

"Something has to be done, and if that means him losing the team, then that has to happen," Johnson said. "The league has to come down hard and make a statement.''

Sterling dominated the sports world Saturday after a transcript of a tape allegedly had him berating Stiviano for being seen with Johnson.

"It bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast that you're associating with black people," the man says in the audio. "Do you have to?"

The man added, "You can sleep with [black people)], you can bring them in, you can do whatever you want. The little I ask you is to not promote on that [Instagram] … and not to bring them to my games."

Johnson said he was stunned by the ignorance of the statements.

"This is so crazy, he doesn't want African Americans to come to his game, he doesn't want them to be part of anything over there, yet he wants his team of mostly African Americans to win him a championship?" Johnson said. "You don't want us in your building, but you want us to win a title for you?''

Johnson said the comments are particularly hurtful in a diverse city like Los Angeles, as the words betrayed the very people upon whose loyalty Sterling has long depended.

"There are African Americans living in his building, African Americans buying his season tickets, African Americans putting money in his pockets, yet he doesn't want them near him?" Johnson said. "He tells them don't bother to come, he doesn't want them in his arena? In the most diverse city in the United States? How can somebody like that be running a sports team?"

Johnson feels that Sterling's statements would validate years of racism charges against the owner, a history that Johnson feels should be enough to strip Sterling of his powers.


Quote:
"I guess he proved Elgin Baylor right when Elgin sued him for this," Johnson said. "Nobody wanted to pay attention to it back then, but now, he showed his true colors, and how can you own a sports team and be like that? Aren't sports the one thing that brings us together?"

(Baylor, the former Clippers general manger, filed a wrongful-termination suit against Sterling several years ago and a jury rejected the claim.)

Johnson said his biggest concern was for the Clippers players and coaches, and he phoned Coach Doc Rivers on Saturday afternoon to offer his support and encourage them to keep playing.

"I feel really bad for them, they are trying to win a championship while, at the same time, most of them are African American men who have to explain this to their children, it's such an awkward position," Johnson said.
Though a one-game boycott in the playoffs might have seemed like a strong message, Johnson said it was the wrong message.

"I would never want them to do that. Please, don't even attempt to do that," he said. "They need to stay focused on their dreams, they worked eight months to put themselves in this position, they have a chance to win a championship, they need to go for it. Guys like me will handle the other stuff."

Johnson said Sterling's basketball investment will take a big hit later, when the Clippers try to attract free agents.

"Right now, in that area, they're done, that's it, you have an owner saying you don't like African Americans, you're trying to recruit players, that's not going to happen," Johnson said.

If nothing else, Donald Sterling has already lost one notable spectator.

Major Obama donor avoids jail time after brutally beating girlfriend

April 25, 2014 by Free Beacon


A high-dollar Obama donor who was caught on video brutally beating his girlfriend got off with 25 hours of community service last week after he pled guilty to domestic battery charges.

CCTV footage caught Gurbaksh Chahal, the CEO of San Francisco tech startup RadiumOne, kicking his girlfriend 117 times, including blows to the head, and trying to smother her with a pillow during a vicious 30-minute assault.

He faced 45 felony charges until the footage was deemed inadmissible. As a result, Chahal has managed to avoid jail time, the Daily Mail reported on Thursday.

According to police reports, Chahal also threated to kill his girlfriend several times.

Silicon Valley executives have come under scrutiny for their political activities in recent weeks. The CEO of web browser company Mozilla was forced to step down after it was revealed that he donated $1,000 to an anti-gay marriage proposition in 2008.

Chahal’s political contributions indicate more liberal sensibilities. He has donated more than $100,000 since 2011, all of which went the Democratic Party and Democratic candidates.

Those contributions include $81,600 to the Democratic National Committee and $5,000 to President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign.

RadiumOne’s board of directors includes Steve Westly, a major Obama donor who came under scrutiny after four companies that he invested in received stimulus subsidies while Westly sat on an advisory board directing the disbursement of stimulus money.

Chahal has visited the White House twice, on Nov. 30, 2011 to see the president, and on Dec. 14, 2012, to see the president and the first lady, according to White House visitor logs.

Chahal also greeted Obama at a dinner in San Francisco in 2012.

It was not immediately clear whether activists who boycotted Mozilla for its former CEO’s opposition to gay marriage would also target RadiumOne and other Chahal startups.
