Over the weekend, TMZ released audio of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling spewing a series of racist comments in a heated discussion with his former mistress, V. Stiviano. Sterling even went so far as to prohibit Stiviano from bringing black people to his games, even if that black person was Magic Johnson. Magic Johnson!
