Extended audio emerges featuring more racist remarks allegedly made by Clippers owner Donald Sterling

An extended version of the original audio clip that featured racist remarks allegedly made by Clippers owner Donald Sterling has emerged, and it essentially contains more of the same types of offensive ramblings that has caused a virtual firestorm.

In the clip obtained by Deadspin, the man alleged to be Sterling makes comments that come across as being even more incredulous, especially considering the fact that he seems to be upset when accusing the woman of thinking that he’s a racist.

Some of the worst of it, via Kyle Wagner of Deadspin:

V: Do you know that you have a whole team that’s black, that plays for you?

DS: 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?

And also this:

DS: It’s the world! You go to Israel, the blacks are just treated like dogs.

V: So do you have to treat them like that too?

DS: The white Jews, there’s white Jews and black Jews, do you understand?

V: And are the black Jews less than the white Jews?

DS: A hundred percent, fifty, a hundred percent.

Sterling hasn’t exactly come out and vehemently denied any of this, though it has been claimed that the audio may have been altered in some way, and that the woman on the recording is being sued by Sterling for the alleged embezzlement of $1.8 million.

This is simply additional fuel on the fire, and more reason for Adam Silver to take the strongest action against Sterling that is legally possible.

    DS sounds like he is on drugs on these tapes, the things he says just don’t make sense.

      Thank you! I thought I was going crazy. The guy just rambles.

      • money2long - Apr 27, 2014 at 7:12 PM

        Never think you’re the crazy one when it comes to sterling.

      • 00maltliquor - Apr 27, 2014 at 9:00 PM

        Ha! True that.
        m2l coming in once again as the voice of reason.

      Seriously. Like he’s on another planet.

  2. djshnooks - Apr 27, 2014 at 4:12 PM

    Sounds like he just doesn’t want everyone knowing his gold-digger is sleeping all over the state of California. (Too soon?)

  3. monkeyhateclean - Apr 27, 2014 at 4:13 PM

    I ain’t sayin’ she a gold-digga…

    • basketballhooper1 - Apr 27, 2014 at 5:58 PM

      But she ain’t messin with no broke …

  4. joshm5683 - Apr 27, 2014 at 4:14 PM

    He isn’t suing her, his wife is suing her. She says that all the gifts that Donald gave her, should be included in marital property for their divorce.

    • money2long - Apr 27, 2014 at 7:13 PM

      So his wife sees his girlfriend sitting court side with sterling and does what exactly

  5. sensiblevoice - Apr 27, 2014 at 4:22 PM

    People in Israel are not racist bigots like you, Sterling.

    • absentstars - Apr 27, 2014 at 4:34 PM

      They just put up giant walls around the “bad neighborhoods”….and beleive they are gods chosen people but yeah they aint bad folk

    • asimonetti88 - Apr 27, 2014 at 4:42 PM

      There are racists in every culture and society, unfortunately.

      • money2long - Apr 27, 2014 at 7:15 PM

        Does anyone remember when anti said the rapper pharell was basically white.
        I never knew what he meant

    • bigsuede - Apr 27, 2014 at 4:46 PM

      Actually Israelies are some of the most racist people in the world. There is fault shared by both isreal and Palentstine in that mess

    • bigsuede - Apr 27, 2014 at 4:49 PM

      Brett- curious why you are parroting the “embezzlement” claim that the clippers made. You can look up what is being sued over yourself. There is no truth in the woman being sued for embezzlement- it is about the gifting of community property.

      You should report on the truth- not parroting lies.

    Absolutely Sickening !

  7. rdrfan - Apr 27, 2014 at 4:56 PM

    All people say things about other people in private. Does that mean their bad people. We all say things in private so what the hell does all this matter. Recording audio for gain is pretty low.

    • joegalvan02 - Apr 27, 2014 at 5:10 PM

      believe it or not, what you say about people when they are not there to defend themselves IS a direct reflection on your character.

      bad person? bigot? racist? ignorant? coward? well… yes.

    • jcmeyer10 - Apr 27, 2014 at 5:38 PM

      There is a difference between an off color joke and a record of racism. It’s not like this is hit first offense.

  8. onbucky96 - Apr 27, 2014 at 5:11 PM

    Wow. All that’s missing is blasting Catholics and LGBT couples. Exercise the Demon Mr.Silver.

  9. hojo20 - Apr 27, 2014 at 5:11 PM

    Yeah I’m sure so called black leaders Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson has never said anything anti-white.

    • cruelintentions662 - Apr 27, 2014 at 5:20 PM

      If they did, it’s not a recording of it.

    • realfootballfan - Apr 27, 2014 at 7:28 PM

      Yea, because this is the racist sympathizers’ go to card. What in the f*** does Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson have to do with what Sterling said? Absolutely nothing, so stfu.

      • jusdre313 - Apr 28, 2014 at 4:32 AM

        realfootballfan.. took the words right out of my mouth

  10. highsociety921 - Apr 27, 2014 at 5:19 PM

    Ok, finally heard it for myself. No doubt there is racist tones in the recording. And of course this isn’t the first time for him. But, that girl baited the crap out of him in that convo, lol. She knew what she was doing.I didn’t even know which one she was in the Magic picture, both girls looked in their 20’s. To say there is no truth in some of what he said would be a lie tho, especially in bigger melting pot cities such as LA or NYC, different ethnicities do have certain views of others without personally knowing them, whether they like to admit it or not. It’s subconscious from peoples up bringings. That dosen’t mean it’s right, not saying that at all. All that being said, he should’ve been ousted as an owner a long time ago.

    • realfootballfan - Apr 27, 2014 at 7:30 PM

      This is the other thing I don’t understand with people trying to exonerate Sterling. So if someone “baits” a person to confessing to a murder they committed, we need to ignore that, too? It’s the same concept. I’m sure she’s heard this garbage in the past from him and of course she led him to get him to speak freely on the subject while the tape was rolling. Use your heads dummies before you post on this subject.

  11. cruelintentions662 - Apr 27, 2014 at 5:24 PM

    What I’m tripping on, is how are you going to sue this woman over gifts your husband brought her.

    • casualcommenter - Apr 27, 2014 at 6:40 PM

      Agreed. Donald Sterling is a billionaire, and he gave a total of like $2 million worth of gifts to his mistress. Sterling’s soon to be ex-wife would get at most half of that in a divorce.

      It was petty of his wife to file a lawsuit to try to add $1 million to her divorce settlement when she already stood to make at least tens of millions and possibly hundreds of millions of dollars even if she let the gold digger keep her gold. There was a huge risk the mistress would retaliate in some way to hurt Sterling.

      So it’s pretty clear that neither Sterling’s wife nor his mistress cared about what their actions would do to him, which says a lot about who he is as a person.

      • realfootballfan - Apr 27, 2014 at 7:32 PM

        It’s called spite. Women can be spiteful.

      • casualcommenter - Apr 27, 2014 at 9:02 PM

        @Realfootballfan: Agreed on that.

      • 00maltliquor - Apr 27, 2014 at 10:48 PM

        @ realfootballfan

        I 3rd that motion.

    • mackcarrington - Apr 28, 2014 at 3:42 PM

      If you and your wife have a joint account and you take money from that account without your wife’s knowledge or permission to buy your sugar baby cars and houses. That’s half of your wife’s money.

  12. mariann1929 - Apr 27, 2014 at 5:28 PM

    I believe that woman had Sterling set up with a man who is good at faking someone else’s voice because she is being sued. This will all come out in the wash and those players should apologize along with Jackson, Sharpton and Barkley. Sterling is staying quiet for a reason. The players should stop acting like children and play the game with their shirts not inside out. I’ll back up Sterling until he admits it until then let it go.

    • adamsjohn714 - Apr 27, 2014 at 8:52 PM

      I believe that you are incorrect.

    • 00maltliquor - Apr 27, 2014 at 10:51 PM

      lol @ “1929”

      Racism and bigotry runs deep within the old heads. Keep backing him up though. You know no other way.

  13. fearthehoody - Apr 27, 2014 at 5:45 PM

    Series is over!!! Once I heard the news the other day I told everyone Clippers are done! I took Golden st and the over today (Sunday) and well, its like free money

    • 00maltliquor - Apr 27, 2014 at 11:05 PM

      Good call. I stayed away from that game like the plague.

      I only took Rockets moneyline and with a +5 spread (bought 1.5 pts for -145 as an insurance policy).

  14. fearthehoody - Apr 27, 2014 at 5:47 PM

    And I’m a Clippers fan by the way. They are soft to begin with. All these distractions, they were bound to fold. Golden St wins series 4-2

    • 00maltliquor - Apr 27, 2014 at 11:11 PM

      Are you a Patriots fan too? I always figured your screen name was a reference to Bill Belichick.

  15. thegonz13 - Apr 27, 2014 at 5:57 PM

    OK, we get it. Sterling is a racist scumbag. It’s not like it’s a major secret.

    And, yes, he is rambling but then again, what do you expect from an 80 year-old geezer?

    • kanemoney - Apr 27, 2014 at 7:15 PM

      I guess all 80 year-old geezers are… racist?

      Must be some sort of biological trigger. You hit ‘nursing home age’ and BAM – you become a bigot.

      Not following your logic bro…

      • thegonz13 - Apr 27, 2014 at 9:29 PM

        Actually, this particular 80 year-old is rambling in the recording, which is not atypical to people that age.

        As for racism, he either WAS raised to be a racist or he became racist over time. Either way, he’s a complete scumbag. 😁

    • 1historian - Apr 27, 2014 at 10:13 PM

      my little munchkin – ask yourself that question if/when you hit that mark.

  16. spyder9669 - Apr 27, 2014 at 6:15 PM

    Fact is..there is NO legal action that can be taken by the commishioner or anyone else against Sterling. Audio recordings are completely inadmissible in a California courtroom.

    • casualcommenter - Apr 27, 2014 at 6:35 PM

      ….It’s not even that the audio recordings are inadmissible.
      Saying racist comments to your mistress is not against the law, even if it’s recorded in a state where recordings are admissible.

      So his comments, regardless of how or where they were recorded, do not constitute anything illegal. The effect though is that they turn public opinion against Sterling, and that’s relevant because he’s the owner of a major entertainment property.

      Basketball is entertainment for the public, and it’s bad for business if you’re in entertainment, and the public dislikes you.

      • 00maltliquor - Apr 27, 2014 at 11:14 PM

        Nail. Hammer. On the head.

  17. mackcarrington - Apr 27, 2014 at 6:42 PM

    This chick purportedly vowed to get even with Sterling. She is doing a great job. She’s peddling tapes to TMZ and Deadspin
    and has set in motion a chain reaction that may eventually cost him ownership of the team. She sounds so patronizing on those tapes; “honey”, “baby”. She sounds real “icky” to me. And I personally don’t think she is hot at all. She’s a total skank
    and Sterling is a total slime. It’s not surprising these two hooked up. Wouldn’t be surprised if she’s an ex hooker or stripper or both.

    • twinfan24 - Apr 28, 2014 at 1:43 AM

      Did you think Sterling could land a young woman who wasn’t just after money? He’s old and creepy. Only a gold digger would go after that. I don’t feel sorry for him, as he had to know that is the only kind of young woman he could attract.

      • mackcarrington - Apr 28, 2014 at 1:55 AM

        “Gold digger”. Is that a euphemism for “prostitute”?

  18. money2long - Apr 27, 2014 at 7:18 PM

    How did sterling make his billions?
    Anyone know ?

    • mackcarrington - Apr 27, 2014 at 7:22 PM

      Late to the party huh? Sterling made money in real estate and was advised by his friend jerry Buss suggested he buy the Clippers.
      At the time he was only a millionaire. I don’t know if he is worth billions now.

      • money2long - Apr 27, 2014 at 8:00 PM

        so then i guess im not late if he’s not a billionaire

  19. jzone954 - Apr 27, 2014 at 7:45 PM

    Ya know I don’t wanna be the batter of bad news for this gentlemen but Moses and Solomon could’ve been black. As a matter of fact it is believed that tribe of Judah could’ve been very dark skinned.

  20. sabatimus - Apr 27, 2014 at 9:23 PM

    There are people who lose touch with reality when they become uber-famous or uber-wealthy.

    And then there’s Sterling. Holy cow.

  21. 1historian - Apr 28, 2014 at 7:27 AM

    What does this whole thing say about the ethics of the person who recorded what Sterling had to say and is now getting notorious and maybe rich for having done what she/he did?

    All I ask is this – Who among you has never said or done something of which you are ashamed and would be mortified if it ever came to light on the blog, or internet or whatever.

    No hands?

    I thought so.
