L.A. Clippers NBA Team Wear Uniforms Inside Out in Protest of Owner Donald Sterling's Alleged Racist Remarks (Video)

The players of the Los Angeles Clippers walk out onto the court for their game against the Golden State Warriors with their uniforms turned inside out on Sunday (April 27) at Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif.

The team hid their logo in protest of the racist remarks reportedly made by owner Donald Sterling on tapes that obtained by TMZ.

The audio features an alleged argument between Sterling and his girlfriend V. Stiviano in which he says derogatory things, including, “You can sleep with [black people]. You can bring them in, you can do whatever you want. The little I ask you is not to promote it on that…and not to bring them to my games.”

Sterling and the Clippers organization released a statement to the site saying, “We have heard the tape on TMZ Sports. We do not know if it is legitimate or if it has been altered. We do know that the woman on the tape — who we believe released it to TMZ Sports — is the defendant in a lawsuit brought by the Sterling family, alleging that she embezzled more than $1.8 million, who told Mr. Sterling that she would ‘get even.’”

The statement continues, “Mr. Sterling is emphatic that what is reflected on that recording is not consistent with, nor does it reflect his views, beliefs or feelings. It is the antithesis of who he is, what he believes and how he has lived his life. He feels terrible that such sentiments are being attributed to him and apologizes to anyone who might have been hurt by them.”

This allegedly started when Sterling got angry about an Instagram photo (which has since been deleted) that Stiviano posted with NBA legend Magic Johnson. In the tape, Sterling is allegedly heard saying, “Don’t put him [Magic] on an Instagram for the world to have to see so they have to call me. And don’t bring him to my games.”

President Barack Obama was asked to comment on the remarks during a press conference in Malaysia to which he replied, “When ignorant folks want to advertise their ignorance, you don’t really have to do anything. You just let them talk. That’s what happened here.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK about the Clippers protesting at their game today?

    Yes, his comment is bad. But it could also mean he is telling his girlfriend she is allowed to cheat but doesn’t want the people she is cheating with to be thrown in his face at his team’s games. He had to add the race card to it which makes it bad. All in all, it’s an odd statement to be making to your “girlfriend”.

  • Nana Yaw

    I still can’t believe he said those at this present age. He should just come out and apologize.

  • OMG

    So he is saying to his girlfriend you can cheat with black men, but dont rub it in my face for the world to see????

  • Oh Boy

    So his wife sues his girlfriend under California’s common property law, while Sterling is still in a relationship with the girlfriend because the wife is worried that the 1.8 million apartment, 2 Bentleys, Farrari and other gifts he gave her cuts into her part of their property. As the wife said she did not give Sterling permission to give her those gifts. How do we know the wife isn’t behind releasing the tape. Did you see Blue Jasmin…

    First of all, he is jewish and said a lot more than just what’s been written in the headlines.
    He also talked about Israel’s treatment of black (Ethiopian) jews.
    Please listen to ALL of the audio before you comment. There is a lot more.
    He spoke about how horrribly jews ashkenazi mainly, treat the black people there and also the original jews Ethiopians. Remember the sterilization scandal? How they sterilized Ethiopian women without their knowledge? Please read up about that!

    My Uncle Jack just got an almost new cream Dodge SRT Viper Coupe by working parttime off of a laptop… website link …….


  • Oh Boy

    @.: Thanks for providing that information. So the whole Ms. Black Isreal is just a publicity stunt. Had no idea about the sterilization.


    So that old rich Jewish Democrat lawyer didn’t want his former half-black half-Asian girlfriend to always be bringing black guys to the games; just to look cool.
    “Big wow!” [Star Maps]
    And get this. The old FDR Jew was also sued for millions by his own Jewish Civil Rights [666,666,666] people because he didn’t much like the idea of renting his swanky Beverly Hills apartments to black prostitutes and drug dealers. Oh the horror!

    @TOP DOG: She’s half black half Mexican FYI.

    It’s typical of Obama to not hold anyone accountable for the IRS targeting conservative groups but to come out immediately on this one. Think for one second if the IRS was targeting black political groups. What stand do you think he would take then? Ignorance calling Ignorance.

  • jjj


    LMFAO!!!!!!! The evidence shows that the IRS targeted progressives groups far, far more ta they did teh “tea party” clowns. So I guess Pres. O s opposed to lefties now eh?

  • Love The Shoes

    @carol: Carol? Shut up. My lord are you really this obtuse? Really?! REALLY?!

  • Love The Shoes

    @Oh Boy: Oh Boy, I not an hour ago came to the conclusion that the wife released this. Don’t know for sure of course but what ultimate revenge on a man who I think we can deduce has probably never been faithful, but who has found no problem flaunting his infidelities.

  • Tolson

    @JJJ your over excitement to my comment is revealing in and of itself. And what you missed was that I was mentioning accountability, or the lack thereof, from anyone involved in the IRS scandal. You don’t understand the role of what should be a bipartisan position. To only come out on certain topics, but not others, shows his, well I already said it, ignorance.

  • lol

    Ovomit talking about ignorance
    dude and his manwife are total jokes

  • 55vineyard

    I think she set him up, she did say she would “get even: with him.

  • TWpumpkin1031

    @Tolson: I agree.

  • ok

    If you read the many reports on this story I believe the girlfriend, not the wife, said that she would “get even.”

  • gnw

    If Obama wants to comment on this incident, fine, but he never found the time to comment on the recent beating of a white man in Detroit by a group of black people. He should speak up about all injustices, to all people, or he shouldn’t speak up at all.
