So many people are called racist these days that one is often skeptical.
Donald Sterling, the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers, is the latest to feel the wrath of the offended.
The man is obviously a fool for getting involved with the likes of V. Stiviano, upon whom he bestowed expensive gifts, reportedly including $500,000 worth of luxury cars, a $1.8-million duplex, and other lavish gifts.
For his generosity, Sterling was rewarded by Stiviano with the ultimate betrayal, setting him up, secretly taping their private conversations and releasing them to Deadspin, an in-your-face sports and gossip web site.
Every news report I’ve seen thus has dwelled on his comments, ignoring the fact that his remarks were made in private. Like them or not, people are entitled to their opinions, no matter how outrageous.
Stiviano denies that Sterling was her boy friend, claiming their relationship was “strictly professional,” according to TMZ. Not much of a stretch, easy to believe.
An individual with Sterling’s resources will have some great lawyers on the payroll. Hopefully, she gets time behind bars for the secret taping to reconsider her profession. The next millionaire won’t be as trusting.
