Donald Sterling Son-in-Law

You're A Racist

And I Don't Care If You Fire Me For Saying It

Donald Sterling's son-in-law, Director of Basketball Administration for the Clippers who helps run the day-to-day operation of the team, tells TMZ Sports what his father-in-law did is ignorant and racist ... and if that costs him his job ... so be it.

Here are the words of his son-in-law Eric Miller:

"I find the statements and representations made by the Clippers' team owner to be deplorable and disgusting.  There is no room in sports or society in general, for racism."

Miller goes on:  "I pledge my full support for the wonderful players, coaches and staff members of the Clippers organization.  I have complete faith that Commissioner Silver will deal with this matter swiftly and severely."

And then Miller says, "If these comments should happen to cost me my employment with the team, it is but a small price to pay to speak out against ignorance and racism."

Donald Sterling's daughter, Joanna Sterling Miller -- who is married to Eric -- says, "I am devastated and saddened by the cruel and insensitive comments expressed in these audio tapes."

why is no one reporting on the fact that Al Sharpton has come out citing all of the past racial comments this man has made however he was set to receive the NAACP lifetime achievement award with Sharpton as an honored participant in the ceremony for it....so it is ok that he is racist if he gives the sham NAACP money but now that he did it in such a public way they are up in arms......do your job media and stop shielding the DNC

Wow Don, even your family is disgusted by you. Time for you to go. No suspension, no fine, but your ass kicked out of the league, sell your team, take your money and go crawl under a rock and spend the rest of what hopefully will be your short life there. You ****ed up Don.

Larry Johnson just propose an all-black NBA including owners, players, mgmt. In other words, not commingling with white, latinos, asians, etc. Is that any different than what Sterlings was saying?

Larry Johnson wants a league only for
African-Americans? Excellent idea!
No Jews, Latinos, Asians, nor Anglo-Americans in
ANY aspect of the enterprise?
Put your money where your mouth is Johnson!

He might be racist (although I did not hear much racism in the conversation) but I know for sure she is a gold digger.

This is getting really old. He was a known racist. People who knew him best act like this is a big surprise? He had that whore on his arm for 4 years and everyone knew it. Suddenly everyone is distancing themselves from him. Bullsh1t. Hell, 3/4 of the commenters on TMZ who were blatantly racist just jumped on the bandwagon acting like they are appalled. Bunch of hypocrites. Save it.
