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.

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?

    what is sad is that Jewish leaders aren’t getting out in front of this and stating what a disgrace these comments are to the Jewish community that we have such a racist in our midst.

  15. Tracy Ramsey says:

    On a lesser note, they’re the LA Clippers. Apparently the non-English proficient intern is doing the postings today.

  16. Polly Dorst says:

    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?

  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.

  24. Really we who are Jewish should hang our heads in shame that he is a member of our community..He truly is vile.

  25. he is a J.I.N.O. SORRY not my kind of jew

  26. Carl Barrett says:

    Maybe she is Ethiopian Jew?

  27. What about Obama racist remarks?? Leave the Jews alone.

  28. What about Obama racist remarks?? Leave the Jews alone.

  29. OBSAMA=HITLR MUSLIMSS= NAZISS ARE RACIST!!!

  30. Levi Vermont says:

    Polly are you defending his racist comments? Not surprised.

  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.

  39. Non-Jewish mistress???…that’s just as racist as Sterling’s alleged comments.

  40. 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 !!

  41. and of course to add more fuel to the fire Obummer has to get in on it. Next the sharptons, jackson etc..

  42. it’s his wife’s problem if he has a mistress, Jewish or otherwise. His statements were outrageous.

  43. Amazing that with what was said people here turn this into a conversation about the obamas, or non Jewish mistresses

  44. You forgot to ask im why he has to dragged Beta Israel into his messy live. Leave Beta Israel alone. god will never free them from misery unless he has a greater plan for them. Beta Israel are strong minded people , they will survive.

  45. Adam Braun says:

    That's how the Jew works, communism for the world nationalism for Israel.
