Holy God, Bill Kristol is a moron!

Conservative pundit Bill Kristol on Sunday urged people to judge NBA team owner Don Sterling by his “deeds,” and not to “go hysterical over two or three sentences” where he tells his girlfriend to stay away from black men.

Okay, fine. Fair enough, let's judge him by his deeds.

 In November of 2009, Sterling settled the suit with the US Department of Justice for $2.73 million, the largest ever obtained by the government in a discrimination case involving apartment rentals. Reading the content of the suit makes you want to shower with steel wool. Sterling just said no to rent to non-Koreans in Koreatown and just said hell-no to African-Americans looking for property in plush Beverly Hills. Sterling, who has a Blagojevichian flair for the language, says he did not like to rent to “Hispanics” because “Hispanics smoke, drink and just hang around the building.” He also stated that “black tenants smell and attract vermin.” (source)

Okay. I think we're done here.

In addition to the just "two or three sentences" Sterling uttered on that tape is the one where he says the black players should be grateful to him because he gives them money and clothes and cars and houses.

Kinda like the massah who tells the slave he gave 'em a home and a mean;, right before he starts the whipping.
