First, Anderson Cooper of CNN is one of the greatest news correspondence, reporters of my generation! His strength and resilience and coming out are like bricks released from his back, and for Sterling to mention that Cooper is a racist is disconcerting. Anderson Cooper and I are only a few days apart from each other and born within a few miles from each other during a turbulent decade.
The recent interview Anderson Cooper conducted with the silent Donald Sterling is just as astonishing as the tapes. Clearly, Sterling is either suffering from Alzheimer's which is a horrible disease and or living in the past during the Jim Crow days. For him to have the audacity to say that Magic Johnson does not help the black community is absurd! Magic Johnson has brought numerous jobs and companies to partnership within low income neighborhoods. There are thousands and thousands of low income people who are now invested in their community and employed and can live the American dream. It appears that Sterling is envious of Magic Johnson and is spiteful toward his accomplishments. Magic Johnson has HIV and he does not have AIDS; however, according to Sterling the behaviors of Magic Johnson and his AIDS are glorified. Again, Magic does not have AIDS but he has HIV. It is depressing that Sterling refuses to acknowledge his own behaviors and apologize to the NBA family that he continues to disrespect. Furthermore, he believes that the players and fans adore him and the media are damaging his personification.
When Sterling speaks of the comparison of rich Jewish people as more dedicated to helping the poor compared to rich blacks helping the poor is a deep seated opinion and a clear generalization. There are many rich Jewish and black people alike that contribute to poor communities within the United States and other countries. In the year 2014, to be born into poverty, does not define a person’s future! Those of us who live in poverty are among all races and ethnicities. Sterling it is time to stop living in the past and live in the now which is a melting pot of the United States. The same fans that attend the Clippers NBA games and the NBA players are the same people who you have demeaned and dishonored. Yes, Sterling’s days as an NBA family member are fading just as his mind a noteworthy juxtaposition.
Blessings and love,
