The Clippers in silent protest.
Racists, racists, and more racists! 2014 is shaping up to be the big year of the racist. Sure, 2013 put in a good showing of racism with Paula Deen’s love of the n-word toppling her bacon-soaked cooking empire. But that’s nothing compared to the big vat of racism that’s been brewing up in 2014.
L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling is one hot racist to watch in 2014. TMZ obtained audiotapes of Sterling telling his girlfriend he did not want her bringing Magic Johnson or any other African American to his games, all prompted by a photo she posted on Instagram:
Racist Sterling made his girlfriend, V. Stiviano, take the pic off Instagram because he didn’t want her seen in public with an African American. You don’t believe me? A transcript for your reading pleasure:
Sterling: You’re perceived as either a Latina or a white girl. Why can’t you be walking publicly with black people? … I guess that you don’t know that. Maybe you’re stupid. Maybe you don’t know what people think of you. It does matter, yeah. It matters.
Stiviano: Do you know that I’m mixed?
Sterling: No, I don’t know that. … [I]t bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast that you’re associating with black people. Do you have to?
Stiviano: You associate with black people.
Sterling: I’m not you, and you’re not me. You’re supposed to be a delicate white or a delicate Latina girl.
Congratulations Donald Sterling: You are one hot racist to look out for 2014.
Next up: Racist Cliven Bundy
We first learned about Nevada rancher, Cliven Bundy, when he was involved in a tense standoff with federal rangers in a dispute over grazing rights. Then we learned more about him, when he started spewing racism during a press conference:
“I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro,” he said. Mr. Bundy recalled driving past a public-housing project in North Las Vegas, “and in front of that government house the door was usually open and the older people and the kids — and there is always at least a half a dozen people sitting on the porch — they didn’t have nothing to do. They didn’t have nothing for their kids to do. They didn’t have nothing for their young girls to do.”
Congratulations Cliven Bundy: You are one hot racist to look out for 2014.
Next up: Racist Mayor Dan Clevenger.
Let’s close out the countdown with a nod to everyone’s favorite racist mayor of Marionville, Missouri. As we reported in BlackBook, the town’s elected official raised the mighty racist torch when he agreed with former KKK leader/murderer Frazier Glenn Miller. At a press conference racist Miller quipped:
“There are some things that are going on in this country that are destroying us. We’ve got a false economy and it’s, some of those corporations are run by Jews because the names are there.”
Congratulations Dan Clevenger. You are one hot racist to look out for 2014.
With 2014 not even halfway over, I’m sure we have a lot more sensational and hot racists to add to our list. Stay tuned….
