Two days ago, TMZ released an audio recording allegedly of Los Angeles Clippers’ owner Donald Sterling spewing racist remarks in a conversation with his girlfriend V. Stiviano. Today (April 27th), Deadspin releases six extra minutes of the conversation previous unheard.
In the conversation, the voice alleged to be Sterling reasons that the two may have divergent views of racism. The man in the recording asks “If you don’t want to be..walking..into a basketball game with a certain…person, is that racism?” Prior to that statement the man alleged to be Sterling explained how his views are not in conflict with him owning a team that is mostly African American:
I support them and give them food, and clothes, and cars, and houses. Who gives it to them? Does someone else give it to them?Do I know that I have—Who makes the game? Do I make the game, or do they make the game? Is there 30 owners, that created the league?
The Los Angeles Clippers are set to play the Golden State Warriors in less than four hours (3:30 P.M. EST/April 27th).
