A woman scorned: Is she a gold digger who set up her Jewish billionaire boyfriend?

I can't believe what you did to me. - I can.
Racism is alive and well in America. First the federal government's BLM (Bureau of Land Management), which is eager to get its share of the 25,000,000 gunshot rounds the U.S. government's DHS has requested, used heavy handed tactics on a rural bumpkin who stepped in the poop, then a cosmopolitan white supremacist came down with Foot in Mouth disease.
Armed property owner reports trespasser, gets charged with felony assaultEver since 2012 things are being revealed. Last week revealed a racist cattle exploiter and cow killer ("rancher") thinking out loud about how Blacks might not be better off as slaves instead of dependent on government subsidies. Listen to his egregious statements:

Massive Raid By Federal agents, Rangers and F.B.I. On Bundy Ranch Imminent?Cowboy Cliven Bundy apologized but refused to retract the statements. Why? Because "if a man can't say things like that, then Martin Luther [King Jr.] has failed!"
Militia Mobilization Under Way For *OPERATION AMERICAN SPRING*Now, Commissioner Silver has slammed Sterling, the Jewish "owner" of a "team" of Black men who do what he says...but are not slaves. Don't call them "slaves," not even "wage slaves," because that would be racist. And if there's one thing the mainstream media will not tolerate is racism, when it feels like it.
(TMZ) Magic Johnson, Shaquille O'Neil, and Doc Rivers react. LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling told his "girlfriend" he does NOT want her bringing Black people to his games... including Magic Johnson. It's ALL on tape.

"The one editorial cartoon about Donald Sterling you have to see" says The Washington Post's Missy Khamvongsa: Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Mike Luckovich sums up the Sterling debacle pretty succinctly. More
"Don't bring Black people to Clippers games"
From NY, the commissioner has spoken: The NBA is banning Los Angeles Clippers billionaire owner Donald Sterling from the Clippers' organization for life after racist comments attributed to him went public.

He is also being fined $2.5 million.  The penalties come just hours before the Clippers are set to host the Golden State Warriors in Game Five of their playoff series in Los Angeles.

An audio recording of an exchanges, or exchanges, with his "delicate" half-Latina and half-Black "girlfriend" was leaked over the weekend.

Trafficking in USA, too (freetheslaves.net)
In it Sterling is allegedly heard telling her not to associate publicly with African-Americans or bring them to Clippers games. [She seems to bait him into incriminating himself further and revealing his true colors. Many have jumped in to add this was mild in comparison to many things the 80-year-old has said in the past].

How racist is Sterling's racism? 
BeforeItsNews.com, April 28, 2014 (edited by Wisdom Quarterly)
Racism is deplorable. Most Americans now will not stand for it. But many of us don't even realize we're doing it.! Yes, some are too sensitive, BUT most of us are too insensitive.

This is not the first time he is accused of race-based discrimination. Sterling was previously sued in a case that revealed that he ran the Clippers like a "Southern plantation owner." This is only the most recent example of Sterling’s well-documented hostility toward other races, particularly Blacks and Latinos. But this time the story and video went viral just as ballplayers and rights defenders wanted.

Do something: Free the Slaves!
In a racial discrimination suit, former General Manager Elgin Baylor charged that Sterling ran the Clippers with the “vision of a Southern plantation-type structure” asking him to create a team of “poor black boys from the South and a white head coach.”

When interviewing one prospective white coach, Sterling reportedly asked, “I wanna know why you think you can coach these n**gers.”

Despite complaints from [basketball] players, Sterling has made a disturbing habit of bringing women into the locker room and saying things like “look at these beautiful Black bodies.”

[Remember, White plantation owners used to rape and sell Black children, boys and girls, their mothers and fathers, all of whom were their legal property -- a little discussed consequence of European-style slavery in America.

Billionaire modern-"slave" owner Sterling is a ruthless, bigoted slumlord: In 2009, he settled a case with the Department of Justice after paying out the largest settlement ever obtained in a government housing discrimination suit:

He was accused of systematically denying rental opportunities to prospective Black and Hispanic tenants across his Southern California properties. In court documents, he stated that "Black tenants smell and attract vermin." More
