Sterling really needs to just fade away. He is ignorant, spiteful and is a disgrace to all of humanity. Maybe he just needs to be put down like the rabid dog he is.

I think this is interesting in the minority victims in this conversation of the minority One percent of American Sports Business. I hoping both men work out their demon and glad Magic clarified that he doesn't have AIDS, for that is most fascinating, for I too concern myself an HIV man not a Person with AIDS. I hope both men find healing and hope they give more than One percent of their privage to their foundation. Rick Warren a One Percenter is stated as giving 90 percent of His Wealth away

I think that Sterling may be a racist, however he did say something that I have been thinking. Magic has not done enough for the HIV Community, he has access to top doctors, nutritionist, and doctors that normal people with HIV will never be able to have access to. This makes people believe that HIV/AIDS is able to live with, normally. There are many, many new infections in young males in the black, and hispanic community that could benefit from a role model telling them to keep it zipped. More.

Sterling's comments show that HIV is still stigmatized by society. There are still people out there who do not had sex with everyone as Sterling suggests who still have gotten HIV. It only takes one sexual encounter to get HIV. And there are other ways of getting HIV. Sterling needs to be educated.

pbcguy, it's just good journalism to identify the racial or ethnic identities of people involved in making racist comments and of the people who are on the receiving end of those comments

I happened to be in Los Angeles for a month at the time of Donald Sterlings ignorant and uninformed statements about Magic Johnson. I was heartened to see that some upscale Restaurants posted large public announcements stating Sterling's patronage was not welcome. Race relations still remain a very touchy issue in Los Angeles, and by adding HIV/A.I.D.S. to the mix, Sterling really stirred the pot. In light of his heritage, he should certainly have much more compassion. Resign at once!

Of what relevance is it to the story that Sterling is the son of Jewish immigrants? While he may be racist and wrong in calling out Magic Johnson's HIV status, the writer of this story is guilty of subtle anti-Semitism.
