(AllHipHop News) The Donald Sterling saga adds another layer today when his exclusive interview with Anderson Cooper airs. CNN has released a preview of the sit down between Sterling and Cooper.

During the Q&A, Sterling apologizes for the taped remarks he made about not wanting his girlfriend/employee V. Stiviano photographed or attending Los Angles Clippers games with black people and insinuating the team of mostly African American players are indebted to him. But he claims he is not a racist and the situation was created by Stiviano who made him say the things heard in the recording.

“Well yes, I was baited,” Sterling said when asked if he “set up.” “I mean, that’s not the way I talk. I don’t talk about people for one thing, ever. I talk about ideas and other things. I don’t talk about people.”

The recorded conversation between Sterling and Stiviano was made public which eventually led to the 80-year-old being banned from the NBA for life. The other owners of the league are expected to vote to have Sterling stripped of his ownership of the franchise.

“I’m a good member [of the NBA] who made a mistake and I’m apologizing and I’m asking for forgiveness,” he said. “Am I entitled to one mistake, am I after 35 years? I mean, I love my league, I love my partners. Am I entitled to one mistake? It’s a terrible mistake, and I’ll never do it again.”

One of the main topics of discussions on the recording was Sterling’s opposition to Stiviano posting a picture of her and L.A. Lakers great Magic Johnson to Instagram. Cooper asked Sterling if he had apologized to Johnson.

“If I said anything wrong, I’m sorry,” said Sterling. “He’s a good person. I mean, what am I going to say? Has he done everything he can do to help minorities? I don’t think so. But I’ll say it, he’s great. But I don’t think he’s a good example for the children of Los Angeles.”

  • Really?

  • Smurfaveli

    For real slave owner mentality.

  • HATER PROOF

    YEAH RIGHT!!!..my he without sin cast the first stone….GTFOH clown

  • vandyll

    That hate runs so deep in his veins that he can’t even hide it. The more he speaks in an attempt to conceal it, the more his ignorance will be revealed. His best bet is to STFU! and just let everybody speculate. There’s nothing he can say that will help his ass anyway. PHUKOUTTHERE!

    “Am I entitled to one mistake? It’s a terrible mistake, and I’ll never do it again.””

    in case anyone wondered what the “mistake” was………………it was getting caught. how can you say you made one mistake when you have a history of racism?

  • ItGoesDownINtheDM

    until he says he also says he loves his players … no forgiveness …. cause without them yourself or your partners nor the league would exist and yall wouldnt be filthy rich ….

  • Troll_E_G

    Ask him y he feels the way he feels about blacks ..I want a breakdown of the bigot mindset in 2014….skip the apology, y do u feel that way is more important…telling the truth will help black people know about white supremacy

    • You’re right. Sometimes it’s something that may have happened to someone growing up. he’s 80. he’s seen some shit. personally, an apology isn’t needed because that is how he feels. your employees are predominately black. you really disrespected them. you need to go. you may own the team but not the league bruh.

  • Damn…. This dude can kiss any level of sports ownership goodbye. It’s a wrap. But let’s be clear on something. I don’t think he holds his opinions independently. I believe there are numerous owners that feel that way about Black Folks. He just got pimped into revealing his inner thoughts. No sympathy over here. Good riddance.

  • Jamel Williams

    How can U be baited into saying what U truly feel that wasn’t an apology it was just a P.R. nightmare and U still try to throw Magic under the bus saying has he done enough for African Americans. SMH

    “I mean, that’s not the way I talk. I don’t talk about people for one
    thing, ever. I talk about ideas and other things. I don’t talk about
    people.” -D. Sterling

    ^ but that’s exactly what you did.

  • IceBergSlim

    Your a racist deal with it. Stop making Excuses.

  • Faceda59

    Apology for what?There is no coming back from this,sell the team and move on.It’s the snake sh*t that got him in this.Saying anything about Magic does nothing to help in the so called forgiveness.I DON’T TALK THIS WAY.But we heard you though.That chick can’t make you say anything you don’t want to say.Bait, this dude is 153 years old you should have known better.Now take your meds,because your ride is over.We don’t believe you…..

  • Blaq_Boi

    IF you said anything wrong? IF???? Obnoxious MF

  • Inmadopicouroz✓QUEENSᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    he said what he said. got punished and he and everybody else needs to move on. Racism is around in all colors against each other. white dude will get it harder than anybody else, just reality.

    • Faceda59

      I read your comments all the time this is the first I agree with you.But yeah that is the way it is.

  • Ramesses The Great

    I’m not surprised at his good ole boy mentality. He needs to collect his $500 million from the team and go into hockey or soccer team ownership, because there are more of his own kind there and doesn’t have to be around black people.

  • Reblogged this on The Monae Group and commented:
    Baited???? CNN has the scoop!

  • he also said magic johnson isn’t a good role model smfh. just waiting for him to bring up magic having hiv. it’s right around the corner.

  • RichFromBX

    why is anyone giving this old fool any mind – he’s done.

    meanwhile you got this bitch from love and hiphop calling a black male getting shot a blessing and no one blinks an eye.

    Selective outrage is why people think everything is a joke – you going to be all pissed off at what this old fool has said and btw, after looking in to the Clippers org they couldn’t find where any black folks were denied a job based on race or unfairly paid based on race but you got a bitch who publicly said how happy she was that a black male got shot and how she was going to make money off of it and y’all going to do nothing except watch that show and make her more money through ignorance and consistent perpetualizing of stereotypes…SMH…

    • ZUBU

      “y’all going to do nothing except watch that show and make her more money through ignorance and consistent perpetualizing of stereotype.”

      Not certain who elected you as the voice of the Hip Hop masses, but speak for yourself. Also Donald Sterling is just an old fart but the Black Woman is called a bitch. Hmm….. you’re on here everyday race baiting. Well “the black bitch did xyz and nobody does anything; black thugs are killing each other in the hood, etc.”

      • RichFromBX

        race baiting??? how by calling out hypocrisy??? the selective outrage is a fvcking joke…out of that whole shit you pulled out the use of the word bitch???

        race baiting….keep making your stupid fvcking excuses…clowns like you are why shit don’t change. Go ahead, keeping going after people like the Don Sterlings when the most damage is getting down from the inside and ignored…can’t deal with you excuse making fools…

        The whole fvcking topic of Don Sterling is race – race baiting is when you bringing up race on a topic completely unrelated to race just get a rise out of people.

  • DC King Of Hearts

    Magic Johnson has done more for childhood than Sterling will ever do. On and off the court. HIV or not.
    Let 8PM get here so I can screen at the damn television already and be done with it. Shit

  • TheAkademik

    Magic ain’t no revolutionary, but no one should be listening to anything crazy face has to say
