Donald Sterling Sign
Donald Sterling what a bigot moron
Donald Sterling has proven himself to be one of the dumbest owners in the NBA. In today's world there really is no room for racism. Honestly how can you expect to be in the eyes of the media and be someone who is a person who voices racist opinions. Honestly, in this country we have plenty of racists. These people are usually unintelligent or they have been raised poorly. This has to be expected because in the United States of America we have a majority of people who can't read. I take it that if people aren't intelligent enough to read then how could they be smart enough to make any real well made decisions. The parents of these people probably on an equal playing field they filled the poor saps with brainwashing racist remarks. There really is no place in this country for racists, Anti-Semites, and anyone else who can't face the fact that people are people. In this world though you will always find racists and always run into people who are foul and unjust. It doesn't matter what country you are in or where in the world you are, you are bound to find people who can't accept others for the differences they possess. However, there are a few things that make this so much worse is the fact that guy is obviously a racist but he's a hypocrite. Think about what I'm saying how did this fool get found out. First and foremost his conversation with his girlfriend was leaked. Who leaked it, his girlfriend. This guy is an a class moron.
Donald Sterling and GF
Donald Sterling so old he's blind?
Now many people when first hearing this story might wonder why someone's girlfriend may leak information like this. What could someone do that would upset their girlfriend enough to ruin there business. Well first can we look at his girlfriend for a second. She isn't white Donald. What would cause him to think that he she brutally honest with his racism to his girlfriend if she isn't white. Basically, don't hang out with anyone like you or of the same background as you. Why would you ever take a shot being brutally racist to your African American/Mexican girlfriend. What do you think you a proving. All you are doing is ruining your girlfriends opinion of you and making yourself look like a complete waste of life. You have ruined you character and now seem like a man who has none. The problem here for everyone to see is that not only is Donald Sterling being a bigot, but he is also being a fool. Now Donald is old but I doubt he senile. Is it the age gap, is it making him insecure. Is that why you say something so foolish to your mixed girlfriend. Look in many cases people date outside their race. It is socially acceptable. However, I can't understand why someone with the feeling Donald Sterling has would date someone of a different origin.
Donald Sterling is Jewish
As a person of the Jewish faith I am appalled by what this shell of man has said how he has portrayed himself. This man comes from a group of people who have been persecuted and murdered through out history. The Jewish people have had a harder time then any other at being excepted. The Jews have been murdered in the bible in the B.C. time period. Jews have been murdered in the 1400's by the Spanish during the inquisition. In the 1800's they were killed during the Pogroms in Russia. Finally so many Jews were killed in the Holocaust that no racist or man of any sect can deny it. So many Jews to this day are still hated around the world. In the United States of America the same groups that hate non white races still hate the Jews as much as any other group of people. This being the case how could someone be less understanding than a man of that background. What I am trying to say is that if a person of the Jewish faith should be able to relate with a man of any background being persecuted or hated in this country. Now Donald what can you say for yourself. There is no reason why you should be a bigot. Your parents would probably be ashamed of you. The fact that you have caused a stir in the media only means you may hurt your people. Yes your people who already have enough haters in the world will now have other minority cultures looking at you funny. It was bad enough George Zimmerman had a Jewish sounding last name. I'm disgusted with your racist behavior and comments. There is nothing alright with what you said and you deserve everything that you receive. At least your girlfriend realized the piece of garbage you really are.
The Business Loss
Did Donald Sterling not realize that he is an owner of a team in the NBA. Did he forget that he owns a team that is predominantly African Americans, in a sport that is played mostly by African Americans? This isn't hockey or golf. How could you disrespect most of the people playing on your team. How could disrespect your employees, people who look up to you and trust you. You are an animal in their eyes I'm sure and you're one in mine as well. Racist comments will not be forgiven in this day and age Mr. Sterling. Remember how quickly people stop watching Mel Gibson after his Jewish attack. Have you forgotten what happened to Michael Richards after he went off on a racist rant. How about the ramifications that one Philidelphia Eagles player received from for using the n-word. A team that has no respect for it's owner will never win games. You are being removed which is the best course of action. I'm sure that you will lose money. Why do you deserve the revenue you have received when it's being played by people you apparently have no respect for. If anything you should be thanking these people for all the service they have given you. Donald you are a fool and as the saying goes a fool is soon parted from his gold.
Donald Sterling Poll
Donald Sterling won't learn
The worst part about this whole situation is he probably won't learn anything. I mean once all the media is gone, once he has given his big apology, and if he ever receives his big moment of forgiveness, he wont really ever learn. I have to say that it will be sad but not unexpected. This man will actually hate more by the time this all done. He will blame all of those who caused his loss of the team. He will constantly be reminded that he was kicked off his own team because he said some racist remarks. He will always think that it is the fault of the African American Community. This means that this man will not change. Futuristically maybe he will learn something. Donald Sterling should move down south and change his background. He should maybe get himself a "South will rise again" type. This way he will be able to spew his racist filth with other people who believe in the same things he does. He may be able to fit right in as long as he changes his last name because him being of Jewish decent will make the south a scary place for him.
Reactions to Racism
Stephen A. Smith good points on racist

Black skin would be like a bodyguard for george zimmerman and darren wilson. Black skin is so good for protection these days.
I think ferguson needs an all black faced law enforcement team to handle the riots.

anyone have an answer for big daddy oreo?
big daddy oreo on August 12, 2014:
Is it possible for a white person to change their skin color to black?

Everyone excellent comments and thank you for reading. He's Definitely at the mercy of his money and self-destruction was inevitable when looking into the behind the scenes racism he had been spewing in the past. Yes what kind of girl is this person is a good point. However, gold digging is one immoral thing, but racism causes a lot more problems. I don't hate the man personally Ms dora, I don't know him but in fairness I'm just trying to make even more light of what the man has done. I'm saying remove him from the public eye, not kill him because of his hate for other people. I do appreciate the notion you are pressing though and yes he is naïve in his way of thinking. Thank you all again for reading and commenting.

Don't let your dislike of racism turn into hatred for the racist. You would only be spreading his evil. Having said that, yea; he's not too smart.
Dana Tate from LOS ANGELES on June 01, 2014:
It was only a matter of time. From what I've heard he has been making racist remarks for years and it finally caught up with him. He is very unwise as you pointed out his girlfriend is not white and she probably was offended that he would even say such stupid things to her. Personally I'm glad she busted him out she probably was tired of sleeping with him anyway...good hub.
Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on June 01, 2014:
First i must say, " What young woman would be interested in an old man? " There's more to this story. I think every player should not play until he resigns. Racism is taught. No child is born with hate for others who are different.
Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on May 31, 2014:
He placed his self at the mercy of money. Congratulations on being a B'aire. I am happy with my love.
Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on May 31, 2014:
It was only a matter of time. A man this ignorant and this bigoted had to self-destruct at some point.
