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."

Oh, the son - IN LAW, he hasn't had any problems taking the old mans money or I'm sure enjoying the money his wife has from her dad, this is a money hungry bitch, he didn't say anything HORRIBLE,she said it all twisting what he was tlaking about, I think it's a sad old man, being played by a snake and you all are running with the BS. Give me a break. You all should be ashamed. He didn't want his girlfriend causing him to be questioned by people about what she was doing with other men. His generation isn't the type to change the world, he says that he just ass not to cause **** for him and she couldn't do it so she should get out then.

Something sounds suspicio The daughter and son in law blasting dad (the one with all the money). I think they and the "girlfriend" are trying to grab power away from dad. I see nothing wrong with the dad's opinions. The girlfriend doesn't have to be the guy's girlfriend. If she is so appalled she can leave and find another boyfriend. If son-in-law is so disgusted, he can resign. , If daughter is so ashamed she can tell dad face to face, why go to the media unless you are doing something sneaky and underhanded. I'm sick of the thought and speech police. The guy is entitled to his opinion (without consequence) even if you don't agree with him.

I do not agree with comments this man made. They are ignorant and do not reflect how all white people feel and too put us all in same group it just as ignorant sorry but true. Also as stupid as it is why should he be punished he said in private of his own home and not knowing he was being recorded. Not saying it's right but he said it privately not publicly. Has bad as it is how can you be reprimanded for your beliefs or something you say in private no matter how ignorant.

this is starting to feel like a power grab
old dude may not be a member of the rainbow coalition
But these people are lining up and acting like he's wearing a white hood, burning crosses and lynching

Blackmail and power grab
It's about power and money, not about how a dinosaur behaves in his private life
