Donald Sterling CNN interview: What does Magic Johnson do for "the black" People?


Sometimes you have to feel empathy for ignorant people such as Donald Sterling and their racist views. This interview just reinforced that he is a racist with his entitlement and selfish "woe is me" attitude.

Absolutely no genuine responsibility taken in regards to his hurtful remarks toward the African American community. It seems to be everyone else's fault that he finds himself in the position he is. Maybe in the second half of this sitdown Anderson will ask him about the monumental housing discrimination lawsuit that was filed against him., one of the largest in the U.S. (no exaggeration)

 All in All., Donald Sterling is what he is..a disgusting bigot with power and money...the most dangerous kind.

Sterling lambasted basketball legend, Ervin Magic Johnson during the interview stating:

"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, who is Jewish, 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.

Johnson's 1991 revelation that he was HIV-positive shocked the sports world. The athlete has drawn accolades for his openness about the illness and his push to help fight it. He's the founder of the Magic Johnson Foundation, which has raised millions for HIV/AIDS awareness.

It also provides funds for testing and treatment as well as scholarships and mentoring for minority students.

As chairman and CEO of Magic Johnson Enterprises, Johnson has invested extensively, with the company describing its mission on its website as being "a catalyst for and fostering community/economic empowerment" in "ethnically diverse urban communities."
