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."

Did it ever occur to anyone that they might be trying to throw him underneath the bus just to keep the families fortune? Just think about it. . .

Is this the cover letter for a job with the Lakers? Hey buddy you only have the job because daddy has to take care of the loser his son married. Nut up and quit. Make it in your own.

Who cares what you think. You are technically a no one and can be easily replaced. I hate these types of moments. Everyone has to come out with ther own statement. It's as silly as te comments sterling made.

Memo to Eric Miller: Your fake outrage fools only the foolish. The smart folks questions your timing. The fact that you are acting like you didn't know this side of him is laughable.

Trying to save his job. Everyone is gonna take a huge step back from the steaming pile that is Donald Sterling, except for his wife, I guess she figured out where the most cash is.

Everyone in this country deal with racists much worse then Mr Stirlong in their everyday lives, you just don't get to hear their phone calls. This is a reality in the world and people need to just set it aside and concentrate on positive things

The clippers owner didn't seem racist on that audio, his girlfriend is a TWIST, she's totally trying to entrap him. Fuq her. The owner should use her then use her...she's a little manipulator. We all get what we got coming to us in the end...special place for females that twist words I would think. ciao-chilla

You people are stupid if you think this is for real. He's just setting himself up to be acting person in charge. Once Don steps down tomorrow. Damage control.
