Snoop Dogg has responded to the racist comments made by LA Clipper’s owner Donald Sterling. Snoop’s NSFW video is below.
In an audio recording obtained by TMZ, Sterling tells his (much younger) girlfriend V. Stiviano that while it’s fine if she sleeps with black men, he doesn’t want her posting pictures of herself with them on Instagram or bringing them to games–especially Magic Johnson. Stivanio points out to Sterling that she herself is mixed African-American and Latina, but Sterling remains adamant that she doesn’t understand the world or him. And he threatens to end their relationship and not take her to Europe.
It’s a shame that Donald Sterling feels that way about African-Americans… He has a team full of amazing African-American basketball players that are working to bring a championship to Clippers fans. The Clippers also have a strong minority fan base.
Since the tape was released by TMZ, Sterling and the Clippers have responded with the biggest steaming plate of what feels like BS since Anthony Weiner tried to handle his crotch shot, or any Congressman took a stroll on the Appalachian Trail. (Here’s a hint about the statement: The much younger and very sexy Stivanio is currently being sued by Mrs. Rochelle Sterling– who is separated from
peckerwood Sterling but is involved in the running of the Clippers–for seducing the racist geezer).
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.’…Mr. Sterling is emphatic that what is reflected on that recording is not consistent with, nor does it reflect his views, beliefs or feelings. It is the antithesis of who he is, what he believes and how he has lived his life…He feels terrible that such sentiments are being attributed to him and apologizes to anyone who might have been hurt by them.
My take: “embezzled more that $1.8 million” = Sterling gave V. Stiviano a lot of presents, including property and and cash that were allegedly community property in exchange for her being a delicate flower. (And again, while he’s racist, Don isn’t a jealous guy, he doesn’t care who she bangs on the side, as long as she doesn’t post photos of herself talking or walking with an African-American, whether she’s having sex with him or not.)
Meanwhile, the Clippers, who are kinda rocking this season, are the ones who will suffer–will the team sit out games in protest? The NBA is investigating the allegations and the NAACP has announced on its official Twitter account that Sterling will not receive a a lifetime achievement award at the Los Angeles’ chapter’s 100th year anniversary celebration May 15.
Sterling was sued unsuccessfully by Elgin Baylor for racism. The Federal government had better luck: They sued him twice for refusing to rent apartments to African Americans and Latinos — and won. The Rochelle vs Stiviano case is still in court.
Stiviano ought to cut her losses, break up with the nasty racist Don Sterling, pose for Playboy with a ton of hot non-white guys and retire gracefully as someone else’s professional girlfriend or wife.
