A celebrity gossip website posts a recording of a conversation between an allegedly racist, septuagenarian basketball team owner and a former 20-something girlfriend, and the President of the United States, 9,500 miles away in Malaysia, weighs in with another race speech?
When asked about Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling’s conversation with someone named V. Stiviano, Obama jumped right into the question without any firsthand knowledge of the situation.
The Harvard-trained lawyer based his opinion on the mainstream media news story which based its story on a gossip site. Did Obama speak to the parties involved before he commented on the incident? Before the voice was even confirmed to be Sterling’s, Obama called the remarks “incredibly offensive.”
The president certainly does rush to judgment a lot when it comes to race issues. The Cambridge police were “acting stupidly” in the Gates case, Trayvon Martin, whom Obama had never met, could have been his son if he had one, and now we have Obama using the Sterling issue to talk about the racial divide.
Funny, how no reporter asks about Steve Utash, the 54-year-old white guy in Detroit beaten into a coma by blacks or random “knockout game” attacks by black youths on whites. It just never seems to come up at these press conferences.
But an audio recording of a white sports team owner telling his former African-American-Mexican girlfriend, currently being accused of embezzling $1.8 million from the Sterling family, not to bring blacks or Magic Johnson to Clippers games, has prompted Mr. Obama to deliver yet another history lesson on the black experience.
