Donald Sterling
says Magic Johnson is a bad example for the children of L.A. because of what he did to "get A.I.D.S." back in the '90s ... and says he should be ashamed of himself. 

Sterling made the comments to Anderson Cooper during his big CNN interview ... saying "To do what [Magic] did and then get A.I.D.S. ... I mean, come on."

For the record, Magic does not have A.I.D.S. -- but was diagnosed H.I.V. positive back in 1991. 

Sterling continued his attack on Magic -- saying, "Big Magic Johnson ... what has he done? He's got A.I.D.S."

"What kind of a guy goes to every city and has sex with every girl? Then he catches H.I.V. ... is that someone we wanna respect and tell our kids about? I think he should be ashamed of himself. I think he should go into the background."

Sterling also said he believes Magic tricked him into staying quiet in the days after TMZ Sports published the original audio recording as part of a diabolical plot to take over the Clippers. 

Sterling also just called Anderson Cooper a RACIST -- saying, "I think you have more of a plantation mentality than I do ... and I think you're more of a racist than I am."

Sterling didn't explain why he believes Cooper is a racist. 

Sterling seems to be in denial about how the players feel about him -- saying they still "love me." He says the media hates him.

I think he meant sleeping around and getting the HIV, but sensationalizing is how TMZ makes money so... Also, it's not like Sterling hasn't slept around either but that doesn't make TMZ's angle any less misleading.

Call it what you want. Magic got aids/hiv from a hooker. Great role model? I think not. It looks like Sterling has dementia, but he got that right.

One has nothing to do with the other. With that said, 23 years later and magic still never officially is said to have aids and looks healthier than ever. Funny what that $$$$$$ can do for someone while millions continue to suffer and die from what he contracted also. ???????
