Disgraced L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling definitely suffers from a disease – its called foot-in-mouth disease. On his rambling CNN interview with Anderson Cooper, Sterling has a lot to say, including that he doesn’t believe former NBA legend Magic Johnson is a “role model” for children because of his HIV status.
In the interview, he seems to be blaming Johnson, whose innocent picture with Sterling confidante V. Stiviano led to Sterling’s now infamous racist rant, for providing a poor example because he’s HIV positive and claims that Johnson has done nothing for the Black community.
He also says that Jews do more for their community than African-Americans do. “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. Here’s just one clip.
After the interview, Johnson tweeted “I’d rather be talking about these great NBA Playoffs than Donald Sterling’s interview,” he said. “After this week, no more Sterling talk. Just the NBA Playoffs.”
