Obama Censures LA Clippers’ Jewish Owner for Racist Comments (Video)

Just as sad as Sterling’s racist comments is that Jewish leaders tacitly accept his having a non-Jewish mistress.

President Barack Obama joined the verbal bombing raid Sunday on the LA Clippers’ Jewish owner Donald Sterling for his blatantly racist comments reportedly made to his non-Jewish mistress, known as V. Stiviano.

Even worse, Sterling’s alleged comments were circulated by the TMZ website on the eve of Holocaust Remembrance and Memorial Day.

And who ever denied that Jews are their own worst enemies?

Details of the reported exchange between Sterling and his mistress are reported below, but the gist of it is that blacks are inferior, and even black Jews are inferior to white Jews.

At a press conference in Malaysia, where President Obama is touring as part of his Asian tour, he was asked to comment on Sterling’s alleged remarks.

Obama stated, “When ignorant folks want to advertise their ignorance, you really don’t have to do anything; just let them talk….. I am confident that the NBA commissioner Adam Silver, a good man, will address this…. “

Silver said Saturday, “All members of the NBA family should be awarded due process, which is why I’m not yet prepared to issue any potential sanctions against Donald Sterling,. We will move extraordinarily quickly. We plan to have this wrapped up in the next few days.”

Sterling denied he is a racist and told TMZ, “We have heard the tape on TMZ Sports. We do not know if it is legitimate or if it has been altered. We do know that the woman on the tape — who we believe released it to TMZ Sports — is the defendant in a lawsuit brought by the Sterling family, alleging that she embezzled more than $1.8 million, who told Mr. Sterling that she would ‘get even.’”

It’s a messy case.

Sterling’s former wife, Rochelle Stein, wants few things that her former husband allegedly gave Stiviano, such as a 2012 Ferrari, two Bentleys and a 2013 Range Rover. They were allegedly paid for from community property money without her permission.

Stiviano, by the way, allegedly has a few aliases – Vanessa Maria Perez, Monica Gallegos and Maria Valdez.

Sterling is 80 years old. His black-Latino mistress looks young enough and reportedly is in her 20s, young enough to be his granddaughter or even great-granddaughter.

The fuss over the reported exchange between the two already has convinced Sterling not to make matters worse and to stay away from the next few Clippers’ games.

The U.S. Department of Justice sued Sterling in 2006 for housing discrimination in using race as a factor in filling some of his apartment buildings. The suit charged that Sterling refused to rent to non-Koreans in the Koreatown neighborhood and to African Americans in Beverly Hills.

He allegedly said, “Black tenants smell and attract vermin.”

Sterling agreed to pay a fine of $2.73 million to settle claims brought by the Justice Department and others and also was ordered to lawyers’ fees that amounted to nearly $5 million.

Donald “I am not a racist” Sterling was sued in 2009 by a former Clippers official for employment discrimination, allegedly telling his executive Elgin Baylor that he wanted to fill his team with “poor black boys from the South and a white head coach.”

With that kind of history, why would the Los Angeles chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) plan to award Sterling for a second time with its lifetime achievement award next month?

Indeed, that is what it intended to do until the report of the audio finally convinced the NAACP to find someone a bit more deserving.

Below are some of the juicy quotes from the alleged conversation between Sterling and his mistress, but it is not less disturbing that no Jewish leader has publicly said that Sterling’s romantic adventure is a role model for decadence and assimilation.

  17. Sterling i such a gentile last name. I has no idea he was a member of the tribe.

  18. Erika Felt says:

    I don’t care what his mistress is. I do care that he is reinforcing negative Jewish stereotypes!

  19. Erika Felt says:

    Your title insinuates you condone his racism but just won’t tolerate him bedding another culture

  20. Sigh… everybody’s a damned racist these days. We’ve been hearing it so much in the media these days, that I just don’t give a damn. The word has no meaning anymore. What I want to know, really above and beyond the content of the conversation is who taped it, and who leaked it?

  21. Bob Riley says:

    I haven’t heard any racist remarks, all he did was ask his girlfriend that when she hangs out with basket ball players not to bring them to a game. She’s African American so I don’t see the racist inference. I’d be glad to see an explaination if I am wrong.

  22. Les Martin says:

    So what..who else would go with a potz like him..!

  23. Ticky Ticky says:

    Hypocrite and bigot,typical.

  31. Levi Vermont says:

    White jews need to stop being racist period .

  32. Steve Pfuelb says:

    Its ok hes a democrat

  33. how do you censure a person for a private non work related conversation?? Isn’t it illegal to tape a phone call without the knowledge and consent fo the other person?? I’d like to see if all the people condemning this OLD 81 year old man private conversations would sound any better!!!especially with someone goading them to make comments.

  34. i’d like to hear the tapes of michelle obama talking about white people behind closed doors!!

  35. Tracy Green says:

    Therefore it’s acceptable to have a mistress as long as she is Jewish? That is ludicrous.

  36. He is a Jew so he can say anything he wants to, case closed. Have you heard an out cry from any blacks on this. No they know when to keep their mouth shut.

  37. Nadav Avisar says:

    Read The conversation, sounds like an old dude with old mentality being lead into this stupid conversation..
    Read the conversation attached here before making a complete judgement.. I don’t agree with any form of racism.. but his conversation was idiotic..

  38. Who cares if he has a non-Jewish girlfriend? He’s a racist. He’s a disgrace to us all.
