By now the sports and civil rights world has heard about the racism issue with Clippers owner Donald Sterling.
Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling told his girlfriend that he doesn’t want her to bring black people to his games or post pictures with black people on Instagram, according to unverified audio obtained by TMZ.
The tape begins in the middle of an argument between Sterling and his girlfriend, V. Stiviano. Sterling appears to be upset that Stiviano, who is black and Mexican, has been posting photos to Instagram of herself with black people — in particular, with Magic Johnson.
“It bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast that you’re associating with black people,” he is heard saying. “Do you have to?”
So the Clippers Responded… (Mashable)
But is that enough? I posted about this on my social media and got TONS of responses.
So the unified statement is let’s not have the word Clippers on our shirts, we can wear them inside out… Good job guys #sarcasm
What do you think? Was this unification enough? (Answer is no I see ‘Clippers’ on their pants they couldn’t find red tape?)
Clippers fans be happy I’m not in LA.
- So with these responses I feel it is important to say: It’s more than just hurting Sterling its hurting all the NBA that needs to happen BC we need the other owners to say yeah we need him out he’s costing us money. The commissioner has no true power BC the owners are His boss so we need all players and all fans to boycott Clippers games in home and away games. This way the other coaches will want Sterling out and he will be fired. Y’all should look at the Instagram post I did on this, it got heated and truth was told Lol. The display that they did was weak. Those who work in the centers would boycott also. Its not just on the players its on everyone. And the players and their families are fine. Boycotting would not kill their pockets they can afford it.Its the priorities of the people… Are we really concerned more with a playoff game that has no real true value in life besides what man created, over dignity and making a potential stand against racism?
