Donald Sterling

I'M NOT A RACIST

Donald Sterling
 has broken his silence in a recent phone conversation in which he angrily and adamantly says, "I'm not a racist."

The conversation, which we're told was recorded without Sterling's knowledge and posted on Radar Online, is between Sterling and a friend who questioned him about the audio posted on TMZ Sports.

During the conversation, Sterling said ...

-- "It breaks my heart that Magic Johnson, a guy that I respect so much, wouldn’t stand up and say, ‘Well let’s get the facts. Let’s get him and talk to him.’ Nobody tried. Nobody!”

-- "You think I’m a racist? You think I have anything in the world but love for everybody? You don’t think that! You know I’m not a racist!"

-- "Do you think I told the coach to get white players? Or to get the best player he can get?"

When asked about the NBA trying to force a sale of the Clippers, Sterling responded ... "You can't force somebody to sell property in America. I'm a lawyer. That's my opinion."

If these racist, white supremacist feelings weren't in his heart there would've been nothing to record. Now since he's been exposed maybe he can get help.

Magic Johnson aint gonna stand up for anybody, hes a bigger A Hole.. He wants Sterling to lose the team so his group can buy it. He probably masterminded this whole thing.

Has he forgotten what he told V. about Magic. Maybe she has a point about recording his calls. All racists say they're not racists

I actually believe this man. I have seen too many of my business leader friends be attacked for this same thing just because people can make a false claim like this to get money. Tmz has made millions off this. His own girlfriend is now a household name writing a book. This has got to stop. I thought when Obama got elected he was going to "unite us". Now all I see is racism claims everywhere which ironically is funny to me because I own a recruiting agency and affirmative action is alive and well. The most discriminated people now are the white men looking for jobs. Very sad...so many lives ruined over this. Eventually that pendulum will turn and real racist will be able to get away with it because of all these crying wolf claims.
