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."

how many of the businesses who endorse the clippers....how many of them are blacked owned??...the NBA players can't go on strike cause they can be easily replaced.....99% of the NBA teams are owned by whites....so they are the NBA..the white team owners are the NBA....blacks have no power

The man should not be sacrificed and punished for refusing to socialize and hang out with black people....he deals with his black employees on a professional level...he do not need to love them or be their freinds

Rats are the first to run when the ships sinking. Right or wrong, throwing the old man under the bus did nothing for this rat. Buh Bye punk, you and your wench wife are disenheirted. You'll be disputing that will after he moves to Florida. Dumb arse.

I'm so tired of the race card being pulled out. Really my ancestors were not even involved in slavery and yet all whites are being blamed. Change the dynamics on how your race is viewed. Everyone should be treated equally no matter what the color of your skin is.

The son-in-law has the look of a man whose only skill in life is to marry into money
A member of a generation that spends it, not a generation that earns it
