The only thing Donald Sterling’s interview with Anderson Cooper showed us is that he’s an insane racist idiot who has a problem with thinking before he speaks.
While saying he admires Johnson and that his role in the scandal is “irrelevant,” Sterling questioned Johnson’s character in the CNN interview.
“Well, 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…”
Sterling had choice words for Johnson, telling Cooper he thinks Johnson wanted him to not respond to the media firestorm that erupted after the recordings surfaced so Johnson, who is a part of the ownership groups of the Los Angeles Dodgers and the WNBA team Los Angeles Sparks, could buy the Clippers.
“He thought the whole thing will be resolved in two weeks,” Sterling said. “What has he done? Can you tell me? Big Magic Johnson, what has he done?”
Sterling 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.
According to TMZ reports:
Magic Johnson has finally responded to Donald Sterling’s vicious attack — telling us the disgraced Clippers owner is deeply troubled … and is in desperate need of help.
Johnson just called in to “TMZ Live” … and fired back at Sterling’s allegations that he ignores the black community … telling us he’s dedicated his life — and billions of dollars — to giving back.
“I’m a proud black man. I’m a leader in the black community and I take that role seriously,” Johnson said.
Magic says … instead of attacking Sterling, he thinks the guy needs help — and says he is praying for him. Though he points out Sterling has NOT once truly apologized to him or the black community.
Johnson also says Sterling is pissed at the wrong person — telling us, “He should point the anger at the young woman.”
Magic says he thinks Sterling was also trying to pit blacks and Jews against each other during his interview with CNN — but says he will NOT succeed.
In the end, Magic says he’s very secure with himself and won’t let Sterling’s comments bring him down — saying, “It’s sad. We just got to pray for him.”
