L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling racist allegations not the first

Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling is accused of making racist comments caught on tape.

In a secret audio recording, the 80-year-old is believed to be heard lashing out at his mistress for associating and posting pictures of herself with African-Americans, including Magic Johnson.

The backlash builds as the NBA is about to make public its investigation into racist remarks – believed to have been said by Donald Sterling.

The offensive comments were made public over the weekend. The fall-out from those remarks is building by the hour.

Mercedes-Benz, Red Bull and Jet Blue are among the 11 companies that are no longer sponsoring the team.

    Where was Oscar when the Mexican gang went to the African American's home in Compton, intimidating and forcing them to eventually move out of the neighborhood in fear. Didn't hear anything from Oscar then.
