Chris Paul makes a basket and some money for Clippers' owner Donald Sterling.

Sterling: It’s the world! You go to Israel; the blacks are just treated like dogs.

V: So do you have to treat them like that too?

Sterling:  The white Jews, there’s white Jews and black Jews, do you understand?

V: And are the black Jews less than the white Jews?

Sterling:  A hundred percent, fifty, a hundred percent.

V: And is that right?

Sterling: It isn’t a question—we don’t evaluate what’s right and wrong, we live in a society. We live in a culture. We have to live within that culture.

V: But shouldn’t we take a stand for what’s wrong? And be the change and the difference?

Sterling: I don’t want to change the culture, because I can’t. It’s too big and too [unknown].

V: But you can change yourself.

Sterling: I don’t want to change. If my girl can’t do what I want, I don’t want the girl. I’ll find a girl that will do what I want! Believe me. I thought you were that girl—because I tried to do what you want. But you’re not that girl.

V: It’s like saying, “Let’s just persecute and kill all of the Jews.”

Sterling: Oh, it’s the same thing, right?

V: Isn’t it wrong? Wasn’t it wrong then? With the Holocaust? And you’re Jewish, you understand discrimination.

Sterling: You’re a mental case; you’re really a mental case. The Holocaust, we’re comparing with—

V: Racism! Discrimination.

Sterling: There’s no racism here. If you don’t want to be… walking… into a basketball game with a certain… person, is that racism?

  1. Why is the fact he is Jewish an issue? What he said was wrong. but he does have the 1st amendment rights. . What about Reid calling white people Liars, and terrorists. Isn’t that as bad? Reid is a Morman is that an issue?

  2. 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?

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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..

  6. He don’t want her tripping in public with dudes period I didn’t hear nothin racist it’s like she was forcing that slant she knew she was gonna let that out and it had to make him look that bad you’d think he would be dropping the n bomb every second. Set up !!
