"The Team is not for sale. From the onset, I did not want to sell the Los Angeles Clippers."

Donald Sterling Will Not Sell LA Clippers

The saga continues.

Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling, has once again changed his mind and says that he will continue with his lawsuit against the NBA and will not sign off on the sale of his team.

According to USA Today, Sterling is pulling his support for the sale of his team to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer and will pursue his $1 billion federal lawsuit against the NBA, his attorney said Monday.

Sterling was under the assumption that if he agreed to the deal, that all penalties against him would be “resolved.” But sources say that the NBA never agreed to any deal of that nature and will not be changing the penalties levied against him.

“There was never a discussion involving the NBA in which we would modify Mr. Sterling’s penalty in any way whatsoever. Any suggestion otherwise is complete fabrication,” NBA spokesman Mike Bass says.

    BILL GATES, PAUL ALLEN AND STEVE BALLMER, are all cut from the same cloth!!! I was arguing with Mary Gates, (Bill Gates mother) when she was on the Board of Regents at the University of Washington about divesting from businesses doing business with APARTHEID SOUTH AFRICA? When I sued the URBAN LEAGUE LEECHES about their neo-colonial take over and subversion of positive youth activities, Bill Gates dad (Bill Gates Sr.) turned up as their Lawyer. The BILL AND MELINDA GATES FOUNDATION, provided the seed money for the 36 CONDOS AND FAKE “NORTHWEST AFRICAN AMERICAN MUSEUM” (NAAM). YES, “NAAM IS A SCAM”. the URBAN LEAGUE LEECHES then went bust with their neo-colonial take over of the “SMALL BUSINESS /CONTRACTOR’S RESOURCE CENTER”. So this is my response to the DONALD STERLING CLIPPERS PLANTATION EXPOSURE AND BILL GATES AND PAUL ALLEN’S MICRSOFT PARTNER STEVE BALLMERS PURCHASE OF THE LA CLIPPER PLANTATION FOR 2 BILLION DOLLARS($ 2,OOO,OOO,OOO)?

    FYI
    ARE WE CRAZZZZZZY????? STEVE BALLMER’S 2 BILLION COULD END ALL HOMELESSNESS IN SEATTLE? WHAT IS MORE IMPORTANT ANOTHER WHITE PLANTATION OWNER WITH “BLACK LABOR”?? WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE STERLINGS, STEVEN BALLMER OR BILL AND HILLARY CLINTON OWNING THE LA CLIPPERS PLANTATION??? IF AFRICAN AMERICANS ARE 80% OF THE NBA AND 99% OF TOP BASKETBALL PLAYERS, WHY ARE NO BASKETBALL TALENT WHITES THE TEAM / PLANTATION OWNERS? YES ECONOMIC APARTHEID / PLANTATION POLITICS (HARLEM GLOBETROTTERS) IS STILL OPERATIVE!!!!! THE STRUGGLE CONTINUES, Omari Tahir

    FYI
    MR..PRESIDENT MR STERLING IS NOT “IGNORANT”. HE IS TRUTHFUL AND HONEST
    ABOUT THE PAST AND PRESENT US POLITICAL ECONOMIC SOCIAL SYSTEM AND MOST
    IMPORTANT PAST AND PRESENT “US WHITE SUPREMACY”/ BLACK LABOR CULTURE!!
    “THE KING HAS NO CLOTHES”
    Mr.

    EURO DESCENDANT BANKERS, MOVIE EXECUTIVES. INDUSTRIALISTS, POLITICIANS,

    LEADERS. The “WHITE SUPREMACY COURT” has ruled in the DRED SCOTT CASE
    THAT “A BLACK MAN HAS NO RIGHTS A WHITE MAN IS BOUND TO RESPECT”? What
    is new???? “THE MORE THINGS CHANGE THE MORE THEY REMAIN THE SAME”??? IT
    IS TIME THE AFRICAN AMERICAN BASKETBALL AND FOOTBALL PLAYERS STOP
    “PLAYING AS VICTIMS”,,,, FORM AND CONTROL THEIR OWN MULTI- ETHNIC
    LEAGUES AND THEN MERGE WITH THE NBA AND NFL!!!!! PLANTATIONS SHOULD HAVE
    MORE THAN JUST “WHITE” OWNERS IN 2014 FORWARD OR THE BLACK HORSES DON’T
