Donald Sterling vindicates NBA's decision with race generalizations

Published Add your comment

LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling has got himself in further trouble after his horrific interview with Anderson Cooper left him with more questions to answer.

What was supposed to be an opportunity for the shamed Clippers owner to apologize for his racist comments quickly became yet another tirade.

First of all, Sterling did apologize. But then he went on to make more comments that he will regret down the road, which further vindicate the NBA's decision to ban him. 

The CNN interview with Cooper came through in little snippets yesterday, with fans already hearing the owner's take on Magic Johnson as a 'bad role model' for the children of LA.

But in the full interview version he went even further and gave some drastic generalizations about race.

According to Sterling all Jews 'help their own' when they become wealthy.

But he insists that "some African-American's" don't help out their own when they become rich.

The NBA commissioner Adam Silver quickly condemned these comments last night when he had watched the full interview, and he's likely to have breathed a sigh of relief as Sterling missed a huge opportunity to try and clear his name.
