Sterling Declares: ‘I’m Not a Racist’

Apparently Donald Sterling thinks only terrorists get their phone calls tapped. Another secret recording of the billionaire Clippers owner has him declaring, “I’m not a racist.” In the recording, Sterling also laments that nobody came to his defense. “It breaks my heart that Magic Johnson, a guy that I respect so much, wouldn’t stand up and say, ‘Well let’s get the facts. Let’s get him and talk to him.’ Nobody tried. Nobody!” Meanwhile, his estranged wife and co-owner of the team, Shelly Sterling, said on Wednesday that she has the right to hold on to the team, and will fight NBA attempts to remove the family.
