‘Why Would You Bring Black People Into The World?’: Donald Sterling Hit With New Racism Lawsuit
New racist comments made by former Clippers owner Donald Sterling have come to light after a lawsuit filed by a woman claiming to be his former mistress.
According to plaintiff Maiko Maya King, Sterling launched into “a stream of racist and sexist taunts” at her and, discussing her kids, asked “why she would bring black people into the world?”
King, who was working as his personal assistant, objected to his comments which led the 80-year-old to fire her, according to the suit.
King says she was in a relationship with Sterling from 2005 to 2011.
During this time, Sterling reportedly made a number of offensive comments.
In one instance, Sterling asked her “how could you be married to a black man?”
He asked if she had any kids and then asked “why would you bring black people into the world?”
He then allegedly said “I want to take you out of the black world and put you into the white world.”
He added “black people do not take care of their children. All they do is sit at home and smoke dope.”
Civil rights attorney Gloria Allred is representing King in the suit.
This, of course, comes on the heels of a recording of Sterling telling one of his other girlfriends, V. Stiviano, to stop bringing black people to his games, along with some other statements he made to her, others, and even on camera.
He has since been banned by the NBA and forced to sell his team. Former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has had his $2 billion bid selected by Sterling’s wife, Shelly, who is handling the sale. The deal has yet to become official but is expected to go through.
