Donald Sterling On Magic Johnson: “He Acts So Holy, He Made Love With Every Girl In Every City, And He Catches HIV”

Donald Sterling On Magic Johnson: "He Acts So Holy, He Made Love With Every Girl In Every City, And He Catches HIV"
Shut This Fucker Up, Please

Donald Sterling sure has a funny way of “apologizing” for making racist remarks and trying to get back into the good graces of the NBA. The Los Angeles Clippers owner appeared on “Anderson Cooper 360″ last night, and in addition to denying that he’s a racist and claiming he was baited into making those racist statements by his mistress, V. Stiviano, Sterling couldn’t help but go in on Magic Johnson, the NBA legend who was name-checked in his original rant. It seems that Sterling, who maintains that he respects and admires Johnson, just thinks Johnson is a bad role model and should “fade into the background” — not because he’s Black but because he “has AIDS.” (Johnson actually has HIV, not AIDS, but we’ll get to that in a second.) Sterling explained to Cooper:

“Here’s a man I don’t know if I should say this, he acts so holy. He made love with every girl in every city in America, and he had AIDS, and when he had those AIDS, I went to my synagogue and I prayed for him. I hoped he could live and be well. …

I didn’t criticize him. I could have. Is he an example for children? You know, because he has money, he’s able to treat himself. But Magic Johnson is irrelevant in this thing. He didn’t do anything harmful to anybody and I respect him and I admire everything that he does. I’d like to help even more if he would offer me an opportunity to help. I like to help minorities. … What has he done? Can you tell me? Big Magic Johnson, what has he done? He’s got AIDS. … Keep reading »
