He was secretly tape recorded by his half-Mexican/half-black former(?) girlfriend, who was clearly trying to set him up.
That said, Sterling does say some decent things about blacks in the recording, but the media is is ignoring that. It's all about Sterling being a racist, you see.
The tape really sounds like Sterling having troubles with his girlfriend, more than anything else.
But even if Sterling is a racist, so what?
He is not violating the non-aggression principle.This year the payroll for the predominantly black Clippers' team is $72 million ($14 million over the salary cap). If anything, the black community needs more racists like Sterling, if he indeed is racist. The man ignores his own racism to pay million dollar salaries to a group of very talented blacks.
That's what free market economists teach, that even if someone is a businessman and a racist, he still is very likely to pay market wages in order to compete in the market. Sterling is Jewish, can you imagine him being so racist that he hires just a bunch of 5'9" Jews to play for his team?
The first lesson here, again if we assume Sterling is a racist, is that people can do very well, when free market exchange is involved, even if one party to the exchange doesn't like the other, for any reason. It's all about the exchange. I make exchanges, with the Asian lady at the cleaners to the Arab operating a nearby convenience store, on a regular basis, and with many other people. I have no idea as to what their views are on whites. It doesn't matter. Again, the exchange is the thing. The second lesson that should be taken away from this episode of "He's a racist" is that that there really is nothing wrong with a person wanting to hang around with a group he feels comfortable with and there is nothing wrong with a person having such a conversation with his girlfriend. Nothing. Contrary to the delusional thinking of MSM, sports writers and libwaps that all people are equally fun to be with. Sports writers and libwaps really don't believe this anymore than anyone else. They are just politically correct posers.
