Donald Sterling‘s shockingly racist views — that now have the whole country talking — were voiced in a lengthy argument with his girlfriend Vanessa Stiviano with him wanting her to remove all photos of African-Americans from her Instagram account.
“I thought Matt Kemp is mixed, and he was OK, just like me….He’s lighter and whiter than me….I met his mother.”
But Sterling only responds with a passive OK so Stiviano offers to go another step.
“Honey, if it makes you happy, I will remove all the black people from my Instagram,” Stiviano says in the audio first obtained by Deadspin.
Stiviano, 38, tries to settle her 80-year-old married boyfriend, owner of the Los Angeles Clippers down by offering to get him “more juice” and she frequently can be heard calling him “honey” and “sweetie.”

Despite that, Sterling insists she “loves to fight. You fight with everybody.”
Stiviano never raises her voice as she tries to argue with Sterling, who is Jewish, that his remarks are as discriminatory as prejudice against Jews.
The basketball team owner insists he is not racist. After all, he says, he helps his black players put food on the table and buy cars. The problem, he says, is “the culture” not him.
Sterling is now being slammed by athletes, politicians and celebrities for his remarks.
As Radar previously reported, Stiviano is being sued by Sterling’s wife of 50 years, Rochelle Sterling, who wants her to return the nearly $3 million she believes her husband gave his mistress over the past four years.
