Donald "The Mouth that Roars" Sterling: Magic Johnson should be ashamed of himself.
With stunning ignorance, Donald Sterling, in a interview with Cooper Anderson, continued to dig himself from a hole into a crater.
In this surreal interview, LA Clipper combative owner (hopefully soon to be ex-owner) appeared to have sealed his fate.
Scandal's Olivia Pope -- played by Kerry Washington -- the ultimate "fixer" could not rescue Sterling from the predicament created by his mouth.
Sterling -- with a strange fixation -- on Magic Johnson:
“He acts so holy. He made love to every girl in every city in America, and he got AIDS,” said Sterling. “I didn’t criticize him. I could have. Is he an example to those children?”
Later, Sterling returned to the subject of Johnson, asking Cooper: “What has he done?”
When Cooper attempted to answer that Johnson is a business person, Sterling interjected: “He’s got AIDS…I think he should be ashamed of himself. I think he should go in the background.”
Sterling seemed to believe that Johnson’s race had something to do with his inability to give back to the community. (For the record, Johnson has a Magic Johnson Foundation that has given millions back to the community.)
“Jews, when they get successful, they will help their people,” said Sterling. “Some of the African Americans, they don’t want to help anyone.” source
This blathering drivel was intended to restore his image and demonstrate contrition. Sterling wanted forgiveness and redemption.
He failed miserably.
On the contrary, Mr. Sterling, unequivocally -- with numerous Freudian slips -- revealed the dark ugly world of his subconscious mind. He dwells in a Racist's Paradise. A place where one hold's strong racist views, yet insists they are not a bigot.
Once again, let's hope the NBA continues to move with swiftness to unburden the fan base with this drama.
