So unless you’ve been hibernating in a bomb shelter somewhere in New Zealand, you’ve probably heard about the controversy surrounding Donald Sterling; specifically, the comments he made during a phone conversation with his girlfriend. Since the recording’s initial release, seemingly everyone and their mother (including Magic Johnson, Mark Cuban, and Barack Obama) have publicly expressed their condemnation regarding Sterling and his actions—Well, except for me…
To clarify, I elected to hold off on discussing this story for a couple reasons: a.) the media routinely blows this type of stuff out of proportion and b.) prior to this whole Stiviano fiasco manifesting itself, I honestly didn’t know much about Sterling aside from the fact he was fat and owned the Los Angeles Clippers. However, considering the overwhelming amount of evidence that has surfaced, there’s only one conclusion left for me to draw: Donald Sterling is a decrepit, parochial douchebag.
In fact, following a few Google searches, I wholeheartedly think this dude might be the most morally reprehensible sack of shit on the market right now. It’s almost impressive how racist this dude is; moreover, his track record—which includes lawsuits against the US Department of Justice, former Clippers executive Elgin Baylor, Sterling’s estranged wife Rochelle Sterling, as well as (in a fit of irony) an outstanding relationship with the NAACP—is nothing short of preposterous.
To an extent, it’s somewhat remarkable to think this guy was allowed to accrue profit under federal jurisdiction for so long without being bent over and plowed by the long dick of societal denunciation; nevertheless, I think it’s safe to say he’s finally getting his due: nearly every news outlet and minority within US borders is flagrantly lambasting this sucker while he’s forced to groove on the fumes of another impending million dollar settlement.
So to wrap this up, I can’t necessarily root for Stiviano—people seemingly forget she was shamelessly dating someone 50 years older than herself, exclusively so she could snag a couple Mercedes’ when he kicks the bucket—but I’m definitely glad Sterling’s ass has finally become the victim of a good pounding.
On a side note, Ex-Knick Larry Johnson had this to say in response to the controversy:
Black people your Focusing on the wrong thing. We should be focusing on having our own, Own team own League! To For Self!!

Commendable suggestion, Larry, but that sort of thing already exists. I’m pretty sure it’s called the NBA…
