Don’t bring black people to my basketball games.
That’s the message 80-year-old Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling allegedly delivered to his 20-something girlfriend on a tape that was leaked on the gossip website TMZ over the weekend. Among other statements, the man on the tape, purportedly Sterling, says:
It bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast that you’re associating with black people. Do you have to?
You can sleep with [black people]. You can bring them in; you can do whatever you want. The little I ask you is not to promote it on that … and not to bring them to my games. Don’t put [NBA legend Magic Johnson] on an Instagram for the world to have to see so they have to call me. And don’t bring him to my games.
