Sterling apologizes: “I should have said ‘African-Americans’ in my racist tirade”

12 May

LOS ANGELES—after two weeks of silence, embattled LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling today apologized for his racist comments.

“When I told my mistress not to associate with black people, I spoke without thinking,” said Sterling. “I should have told her not to associate with African-Americans. That would have been the sensitive way to approach this.”

Sterling also said he was going to wind down his relationship with V. Stiviano, which was the original cause of his rant. “She’s getting dangerously close to one-third my age, and I have to draw the line somewhere,” he explained.
