DON STERLING AND DON LEMON SWIM IN THE SAME PREJUDICIAL SEA

I find it odd that not one Black basketball player, coach etc. wimpering on T.V. over Don Sterling’s racist words (especially Doc Rivers) said one thing about the trashy, sexist way Sterling talked about women, making them into nothing more than sex objects. Who’s supposed to be a role model for women here? They’re basketball fans too. The NFL Network recently reported that about forty percent of all football fans are women. Magic Johnson had unproteced sex with thousands of girls/women (his own words from years ago) while he had HIV. I wonder if he contacted all of those girls/women to notify them. But he didn’t know their names, so he just announced it on T.V. figuring that would cover it, then they were on their own.

Don Lemon and Anderson Cooper (of CNN) didn’t seem to care about sexism (prejudice/discrimination against girls/women), which was the other half of the story they chose not to focus on. Girls/women make up half of the world’s population and they suffer prejudices more than any other segment of the human race in every facet of their lives from the moment they’re born until they die. Maybe it’s because Lemon and Cooper are gay and they can’t relate. Maybe it’s because they harbor sexist views that they don’t want the world to know about. Maybe it’s just too frivolous a topic for them. Who cares anyway? Young women are getting raped on campuses and in the military every day and nothing of consequence is done about it. Blame the women for the male sexist views. Even some women blame the women. In fact the word sexism never comes up when reporting on the news about the flood of rapes committed against them.

Don Lemon said Sterling should “spend the rest of his life” making up for the tape recorded words about Blacks [coming to his games on the arm of his girlfriend.] by doing good deeds for all Black people. Other Blacks representing the Black community came on T.V. to say the same thing. How arrogant.

Arrogance is the foundation of all prejudice. I never heard of a court handing down a sentence of ‘Community Service for Life’, but I guess that’s Don Lemon’s Court. He wants a billionaire to be the slave of all Black people. Let’s see how much money we can get from this old rich guy to finance social programs for the Black community. Looks like a Nigerian money-making scam. Get a lot of money quickly without lifting a finger to earn it.

Why is it that no one will broadcast the name of the person who gave the tapes to news outlets? Why does all that investigative reporting all of a sudden stop when the question is raised of who handed over the tapes? These aren’t state secrets. It’s beginning to sound more and more like extortion, with a racist label to justify the crime.

Anderson Cooper evidently thinks that having HIV makes a person a hero and nothing that person does privately or publicly has any bearing on that status, in other words they become beyond reproach because they have HIV. Well if Sterling has cancer, given Cooper’s rule for the making of a hero, then Sterling qualifies for hero status as well.

Think before you speak your double standard prejudices on national and international T.V.

Omitting the sexist focus is a prejudice that Lemon and Cooper wear with self-perceived righteousness. The way men talk about women is disgusting. It’s prejudicial and discriminatory. It’s hurtful and harmful to the advancement of their cause which is equality, not just under the law, (we still don’t have an equal rights amendment), but in the public and private sectors of life. It’s in every T.V. program, in every movie, and sprinkled in subtle ways all over the news channels, meant to influence the masses and relegate women to a status of irrelevancy, which promotes enslavement.

Extorting Sterling for the Black cause is enslavement. Destroying a person’s life (as they did with Paula Deen) is torture. Next comes slaughter. But wait. If we kill them, the money won’t go to us, so keep them alive, under our thumb, forever in our servitude. Yeah that’s it. That’ll work. Back to enslavement and torture.

To the basketball players, get a grip. If you think you’re slaves, then you’re free to go anywhere in the world with the millions of dollars you get paid to compete and have fun. Maybe you’ll be tape recorded by someone you trust or by some prostitute you think doesn’t matter to anyone. The die has been cast by you jumping on that bandwagon. It is open season and you all just turned on that proverbial fan. I think everyone knows what’s coming next. One has to wonder how many basketball players participated in the sex slave trade by buying underage girls, then bragging about it to their friends. The NSA knows who you are.
