Oh, Donald Sterling.
He's somehow managed to take this kerfuffle a step further by dragging the name of the Jewish community down with him. He might officially be more of an embarrassment to Jews (especially L.A. Jews) than anyone has ever been.
During his interview with Anderson Cooper, Sterling basically said, "Rich Jews are more generous than black people."
But wait! There's more! He continued on with disparaging remarks incorrectly accusing Magic Johnson of 1) having AIDs (not true) and 2) being a terrible example to children because of how he acquired HIV. And then Sterling went on about how Johnson hasn't done anything for the community. Say what?
Give me a break, Sterling.
We know he's a crook. We know he's a racist. But does he have to be Jewish too?
