Now that Magic Johnson has had a little time to process the racist comments of Donald Sterling -- directed at Magic himself -- he's very clear ... Sterling either has to sell the L.A. Clippers voluntarily or he should be forced to do it.

Magic tells TMZ Sports ... "He's got to give up the team," adding there's no place in the NBA for a racist.

And Magic says, Commissioner Adam Silver needs to give the ultimatum to Sterling -- sell or else.

Magic reaffirmed his call for a boycott by African-American fans, adding he will NEVER go to a Clippers game as long as Sterling owns the team.

And, listen to how he feels personally betrayed.

So it is a crime for whites to openy say that they do not like blacks? Well a white x NBA player said he dated black females and the big boys in the NBA did not like it and they let him know that

Until Blacks realize white people don't love, like, or care about you, this will continue to happen. Maybe now all these million dollar makers of the elite white mans society will start realizing the investments of their riches should go back into their community and keep it there. I'm not surprised Erving thought this white man was his friend. ssk!!!

Alan Colmes: Do you wish you were still playing (Basketball).

Johnson: I don't miss it. I love being a businessman. I get a thrill out of helping communities. I like employing white people.

these cats control the entertainment industry by a whole it seems as if they make him sell the team more than likely the next rich owner of the clippers will be on the sam issht. These cats are organized and affiliated together where as his affiliates will more than likely step in and take ownership.

Hey Magic, are you gonna also try to force Jay Z out of the NBA?


Jay-Z , jay z owner of Brooklyn Nets, was wearing bling from 'Whites Are Devils' Group While Courtside with Beyonce

When Jay-Z was asked by a reporter if the group's symbol meant anything to him, he responded, "a little bit."
