Arsenio Tells Fans How To Get Back At Donald Sterling

Apparently, the conversation began when he saw Instagram pictures of his girlfriend with African American men. In retaliation to his girlfriend’s statement, when she said she does not share the same sentiments that he has on the matter, Sterling says, “Well then, if you don’t feel—don’t come to my games. Don’t bring black people, and don’t come.

One of the most blatant comments revealing his underlying ideas about people of color, specifically African Americans read: “You just, do I know? 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 girlfriend makes it a point to say most of the people who work for the business man are Black. Their argument brings some light to Sterling’s recreation of an eerie plantation dynamic. The worst of it all, is that he says the “culture” (referring to society’s racism) cannot change, and he will not be doing much about it, except benefitting.

There has been much public outrage at the leaked comments made by Clippers owner Donald Sterling. EUR Web (Electronic Urban Report) reports that Arsenio Hall has chosen to take a more humorous approach in addressing the issue.

Arsenio Hall, of the nationally syndicated Arsenio Hall Show encouraged black folks to send pictures of themselves standing next to Sterling, “If Donald Sterling was upset that his girlfriend was being Instagrammed with black people, imagine how upset he would be if there were pictures of HIM on Instagram with black people.” The longtime host took a selfie with a cutout of Sterling naming the picture, “Ebony and Bigotry.” Share your thoughts about this case and Arsenio Hall’s comedic response below.
