Dead on. The story is why was she secretly recording him and baiting him into this? Also, the tape sounds edited, certain parts make no sense, it doesn't flow like an actual conversation, similar to the edited tapes of Mel Gibson. I also find it hilarious that one day he's getting a lifetime achievement honor from the NAACP, then the next after some edited tape is released he's an evil racist. You can't have it both ways, they wanted to honor him for his actions helping black people, yet his private personal comments secretly recorded by this witch who supposedly loved him invalidate all his actions previous? It's blatantly clear this woman, who again, claimed to love him, despicably connived to completely ruin his life. Also, she is half black, if he's such a racist then why is he with her? Meanwhile, what happened to the virtue of tolerance? Leftists love preaching it, yet when someone holds views they disagree with they have zero tolerance and call for the man's head.

Update: AJ pulled the video, he said he listened to the full audio tape and Sterling is saying stuff a lot more racist than what the media played so he changed his mind. I only heard the first few minutes, it sounded edited and discombobulated, so I stopped listening and gave it no credibility. Sterling responded to the controversy saying the woman is accused of embezzling 1.8 million from him, I think by his ex-wife, and questioned her motives, though he doesn't explicitly deny saying what was on the tapes. - Chris
