(AllHipHop News) Magic Johnson is the most recognizable player in Los Angeles basketball history, but the owner of the Clippers has no interest in seeing him at his games. In a phone conversation leaked by TMZ Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling informs his girlfriend, V. Stiviano he does not want her bringing Magic Johnson or any Black people attending Clippers games.
The couple’s argument occurred on April 7th after Stivano posted a photo with Magic Johnson on her personal Instagram account. After Stiviano asks Sterling what is wrong with minorities., the Clippers owner likens the race to “the enemy”. Then later states that his girlfriend is allowed to have sexual intercourse with Black people but breaking one cardinal rule is forbidden:
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.
Magic Johnson quickly responded to Sterling’s comments and pointed to the irony of his racist views in the light of his team being predominantly African American:
It’s a shame that Donald Sterling feels that way about African-Americans. He has a team full of amazing African-American basketball players that are working to bring a championship to Clippers fans. The Clippers also have a strong minority fan base.
In a surprising twist, Sterling’s wife, Rochelle Sterling filed a lawsuit against Stiviano on Friday (April 26th), or having an affair with her husband. According to Mrs. Sterling’s suit, Stiviano seeks after wealthy men with a variety of aliases including Vanessa Perez, Monica Gallegos and Maria Valdez.
