The Donald Sterling Interview Was Worse Than You Could Possibly Imagine
The full Donald Sterling interview with Anderson Cooper aired in its entirety last night, and holy hell, people. I'm a white girl right now. I can't even.
Sterling, 80, slammed the former Los Angeles Lakers player’s character and his battle with HIV, saying Johnson hasn’t done anything to help others. “What kind of a guy goes to every city, has sex with every girl, then he catches HIV? Is that someone we want to respect and tell our kids about?” Sterling asked. “I think he should be ashamed of himself. I think he should go into the background. But what does he do for the black people? He doesn’t do anything.” …What has he done? Can you tell me? Big Magic Johnson, what has he done?” Sterling said. Sterling, who is Jewish, said Jewish people spend great amounts of money helping other Jews who are poor while rich black people turn their backs to people in need. “That’s one problem I have. Jews, when they get successful, they will help their people, and some of the African-Americans — maybe I’ll get in trouble again — they don’t want to help anybody,” he said. Cooper asked, “So are you saying that African-Americans don’t contribute to African-American communities as much as Jewish people —“ Sterling — measured for much of the interview — cut Cooper off and snapped back. “There’s no African-American –,” he said, raising his voice. “Never mind, I don’t know, I’m sorry. You know, they all want to play golf with me. Everybody wants to be with me. I’m easy. I’m fun.”
Whether it be AJ McCarron, a Nevada farmer who takes government handouts then opines for slavery, or an out of touch racist, billionaire, if you give a narcissist enough rope, they'll eventually hang themselves. Sterling's side piece wasn't present during this interview, so I'm not sure what evil entity tricked him into saying this dumb shit, but damn. Just damn. Does cancer medicine make you delusional and become completely obsessed with Magic Johnson? If not catching HIV is the only measure of success in justfying having a shit ton of mistresses, then you're setting the bar real low. Not only is Sterling a shitty owner, he's a horrible human being. Like, Katherine Heigl just started posting his quotes on her Facebook with the caption "So true".
