Similarly, much like the tenant slaying home, as the fallout of an explosive racially laced taped conversation between millionaire Donald Sterling and his friend, V. Stiviano, rages on, which supernaturally  maintained itself, and  was rediculously cheaply, and so very curiously, with a “too good to be true” offering  to non due diligent practicing  rentors, in Dan Curtis’s 1976 terrifying  award winning film, “Burnt Offerigns”, NBA Los Angeles Clipper owner Donald Sterling’s donations and monetary gifts——INCLUDING THE NAACP AND UCLA— have been rejected by an ever growing list of entities, as not only are some entities rejecting his donations but The NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, has banned him from The NBA for his ENTIRE LIFE; some say if Sterling comes back, THEN TOO AS WELL.


Mr. Sterling, according to ESPN, said that “he did not want his friend to promote herself with blacks, either online, or in pictures, and even said that he didn’t want her to bring Magic Johnson to Clipper games”. Along with these statements, which are alleged to him, on ESPN, one can hear a conversatuion believed to be Sterling saying that, among other racially offensive statements, “that White Jews in Israel treat blacks like dogs and that blacks are %100-%50 less that the whites”. Rumors have flown for years that Sterling, though he continued to provide dontions and assistance to many organizations, including The United Negro College Fund, according to, and reportedly  The United Negro College Fund, refuses to return the money. A portion of that article from The Daily Mail’ is as follows:


He doth protest too much: ‘Racist’ LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling donated  $135,000 to the Museum of Tolerance and African-American charities

  • The Donald T. Sterling Charitable  Foundation made the donations between 2009 and 2012
  • $30,000 to the Museum of Tolerance in Los  Angeles, $50,000 each to the city’s Black Business Association and the United  Negro College Fund
  • None of those groups has publicly  criticized Sterling since a recording of a racist rant, allegedly in his voice,  surfaced Friday
  • The United Negro College  Fund says it won’t give back the money
  • The tape’s release may be revenge by  Sterling’s alleged mistress, who is being sued for more than $1.8 million by his  wife

Donald Sterling,  the National Basketball Association team owner who was hit last week by charges  of racism, used his charitable foundation to steer at least $135,000 to  charities that focus on African-American issues – including the Museum of  Tolerance.

A voice purported  to be that of Sterling, the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers franchise, was  recorded in a racist rant chastising his reported mistress for associating  publicly with black people.

But through the  Donald T. Sterling Foundation, which he set up in 2007, he donated $30,000 to  the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles, and $50,000 each to the United Negro  College Fund and the Black Business Association of Los Angeles.

Sterling’s  donations could be a form of public-relations inoculation against future  criticism. None of those groups has publicly rebuked him since the tape surfaced  on Friday.

The United Negro  College Fund told MailOnline on Monday that it won’t give back the  money.

‘UNCF has not had  any conversation regarding returning money back to Donald Sterling,’ the group’s  national communications director Anthony Owens said.

‘All funds raised  by UNCF are used to provide scholarships to help get minority students to and  through school and we would never ask the student to return the  money.’

None of the other  organizations responded to questions about whether they will send Sterling’s  money back.

A separate $5,000  grant went to the Los Angeles chapter of the NAACP in 2010. That organization  has rescinded its offer to present Sterling with its 2014 Lifetime Achievement  Award.

Sterling has  already won the honor once before, in 2009.

The grants came  between 2009 and 2012. The foundation’s ‘Form 990’ tax return for 2013 is not  yet due to the Internal Revenue Service.

The NAACP,  America’s most visible African-American advocacy organization, received a grant  from Sterling’s foundation in 2013, according to the NBA, but the amount has not yet been  disclosed.

A voice that  sounds like Sterling’s is heard on the tape telling a woman  that ‘it bothers me  a lot that you want to broadcast that you’re  associating with black people. Do  you have to?’

‘You can sleep  with them. You can bring them in, you can do whatever you  want,’ the man says.  ‘The little I ask you is not to promote it on that  … and not to bring them to  my games … in your lousy f****ing  Instagrams, you don’t have to have yourself  with, walking with black  people.’

The New York Times reported Monday that  Sterling’s current racial black eye isn’t his first: In  2009 he paid a $2.725  million lawsuit settlement to dispense with the  U.S. Justice Department’s  charge that he systematically shoved Hispanic  and black  Americans, and  families with children, out of his apartment  buildings.

n conclusion I think Sterling sucks and needs serious mental help but President Obama said, during a recent  press conference in Malaysia on Saturday, in a recent  SPORTS ILLUSTRATED  article on,, by  , said some very pertinent things and I will end this piece with his words. The S I article is as follows:

Reaction to the racist comments attributed to Clippers owner Donald Sterling extended well beyond the confines of the basketball world on Saturday, as President Barack Obama was asked about the subject during a press conference in Malaysia. Obama, himself an avid fan of the NBA and the sport in general, conveyed both his condemnation of Sterling’s comments and faith in the league to address the issue.


Obama’s full comments on the subject were as follows:

The owner is reported to have said some incredibly offensive racist statements that were published. I don’t think I have to interpret those statements for you; they kind of speak for themselves. When people — when ignorant folks want to advertise their ignorance you don’t really have to do anything, you just let them talk. And that’s what happened here.

I have confidence that NBA commissioner Adam Silver — a good man — will address this. Obviously, the NBA is a league that is beloved by fans all across the country. It’s got an awful lot of African-American players. It’s steeped in African-American culture. And I suspect that the NBA is going to be deeply concerned in resolving this.

I will make just one larger commment about this. The United States continues to wrestle with the legacy of race, slavery and segregation. That’s still there — the vestiges of discrimination. We’ve made enormous strides, but you’re going to continue to see this percolate up every so often. And I think that we just have to be clear and steady in denouncing it, teaching our children differently, but also remaining hopeful that part of why some statements like this stand out so much is because there has been this shift in how we view ourselves.

I was born in Fountainbleu in Paris France to an army family. My father ,Ruben Smith, and my mother Nancy Smith, worked for the Army and as a school teacher in France, respectively.We are originally from the South. My father’s people from Misissippi and Alabama and my mom’s from South Carolina. I am an avid sports fan and I attended and played sports----football, wresting, and track----- at Bishop England High School, in Charleston, South Carolina; my mom chose both a Catholic high school and an elementary school, Immaculate Conception, for my sister and I. Initially, I wasted a lot of time in school pursuing sports and partying but nevertheless,I went to the College of Charleston, The University of South Carolina, where I majored in Journalism, Advertising and Public Relations, with a minor in Theatre and Speech. I finally graduated from The University of Redlands, in Redlands, CA with a degree in business management. I managed to get into SAG-AFTRA, mostly as an extra, but I have done an occasional speaking stint here and there—CD-ROMs, experimental and industrial films, and voice overs in radio. My most recent endeavor was playing a doctor on "Grey's Anatomy". I like horror, love, thrillers, and I like to read. Weightliftingand jogging are some of my hobbies also. Interestingly enough, my family prepared me for a life on the move, as I have been to every state in The USA except for Alaska and Hawaii. I have an older sister who chose the teaching profession and is doing quite fine. What was i like as a child? Well I tend to think that I existed and flourished within "a culture of hate"--------however South Carolina has ceased and desisted with both "The jim Crow Laws' and flying the Confederate Flag------------I witnessed "colored only" bathrooms, and was in establishments where the Klan showed up. I stayed at hotels where my family and I found pounds of raw CHITTERLINS---hogs guts----- at our doorstep!! But don't get me wrong, as despite these ugly truths about the South, I grew up with some very cool whites, mexicans, Filipino's and other races. But it is what it is. It has Metamorphosized into being a cultural and real estate melting pot, as many from other states are recently flocking there for the cheaper home prices, very stable, safer lifestyle and "bible belt" mentality, and affordable education. I too have Metamorphosized , as I am not the militant little athletic, and partying freak I used to be and have settled into writing for Cold Heat News and assisting We Care for Humanity with their charitable functions. Consequently, I am pretty much a normal army brat who has realized that life is what you make it and people and things are subject to change. So change with life and let by gones be by gones. My dad has since passed away, and my mom and sister and most of my cousins are still alive, but their positive,significant influence, along with the impact my elementary and high school friends have had on me continues on;infact, I believe, where it not for my childhood friends, my high school football Coach Jack Cantey and occasional teenage battles with my dad, I would have become a gang member! Thus my personal manifesto is, Live hard, party when it is time, and utilize both education, and Love for God, and know that FAMILY AND FRIENDS are most important;They're one's conduit for a viable and happy life. ALSO, A FRIEND IN NEED IS A FRIEND---NOT A "FAIR WEATHER"------INDEED.
