Donald Sterling's View From The 1%
April 29, 2014

Not only did Donald Sterling's racism come out loud and clear on the audio tape, but it also gives us a bird's eye view of just how the wealthy view the workers in this country.


V: Do you know that you have a whole team that's black, that plays for you?

DS: You just, do I know? I support them and give them food, and clothes, and cars, and houses. Who gives it to them? Does someone else give it to them?Do I know that I have—Who makes the game? Do I make the game, or do they make the game? Is there 30 owners, that created the league?

See, the players don't make basketball games, the owners do. What would the players ever do without the love, kindness and understanding that these gracious owners bestow upon them. The players don't earn a living, it's given to them by those owners. They can't eat, drink, dress or do anything else without their benevolence.

And in the beginning it was written that an "owner" is like an angel living on this earth. They should be revered, worshiped and bowed down to.

You can bet most of the 1%ers feel this way too.
