An Un-Timely Donation


I have not commented on Donald Sterling this weekend, figuring the two years I covered the Clippers (and dealt with him) was enough of a price to pay. But this ad from today’s L.A. Times shows how the timing of donations can backfire. Think that lab will still bear DTS’s name? Credit the UCLA Faculty Association for questioning this donation first.

    Don’t laugh too hard SUCCsters, didn’t SUCC, the 67th most reputable Univ. in the world, sell Arnold Schwarzenegger an Honorary Degree for 20 million?

    • Aero93

      Schwarzenegger overpaid $19,999,999.

      • TrojanFamily

        Just so we are clear, you are stating that UCLA’s accepting a substantial named donation from Donald Sterling is the functional equivalent of a former Governor of the state of California donating a substantial sum of money to USC to create a named Public Policy Institute. R-1 schools always seek named donations to create institutes, hire talented researchers, and produce research. Yet you seem to think that the creation of this institute is a bad thing because….well I suppose because you don’t like the former Governor. Good thing you don’t work in University Development.

        • Aero93

          I communicated all that from a 3 word retort? I’m a friggin genius!!!!!!!

  • You know, I kept expecting Nubs to come out in defense of Sterling.

    But then I realized why not….Sterling’s Jewish.

    • SUCC de trop

      Bucket, the Nobster doesn’t appreciate anything but SUCC FB and laundered cash.

      • NOBSisdaMAN

        And both of your wives.

        • SUCC de trop

          Reverting to old style Nobs. As usual you got nothing to say so you attack with ugly personal slurs – the same adolescent slurs over and over ad infinitum. You’re a sad rich loser Nobs.

          • that’s our Nubsie!!

          • NOBSisdaMAN

            Yep, and yours is the same old c r a p you spew everyday. You’re really ignorant, poor and jealous. Enjoy the 99%.

          • TrojanFamily

            You complain about ugly personal slurs by calling someone a sad loser? You might want to look up irony.

    • NOBSisdaMAN

      My bet is you have only heard sound bites and react like the masses always do. Sterling is an idiot, always has been. BUT, he is being taken out of context, illegally taped by a you know what and tried by a holes like you. He is an idiot and should have known better. BTW, think Chuckie or Magic ever said something that negative about whites in private???? Hmmmmm, just wondering. In any event, Sterling stepped on his bruin and has to live with it. Tough bruin for him.

      • SUCC de trop


      • taken out of context??? HAWR-HAWR!!!

        as O’Bummer says, let the ignorant people TALK!!!

        poor love-lorn Nubsie, you another of your racist heroes going down in flames!!

        you are a TRUE trOXan!!!!

        i KNEW you would come to his defense!!

        THATS why Bucket loves NOBS!!! you are so predictable!!

        i also like your theory that EVERYONE is just like Sterling, only he was dumb for getting caught!! what a Nubs!!!

        • NOBSisdaMAN

          s bucket, have listened to the WHOLE tape? You’re doing to my post exactly what you and every other hang man wants to do the DS. BTW, your comment about “Jewish” is laughable. I am not a Jew, however, the Jews have done more for minorities in this country than any other race has. Wake up you moron.

          • nice try, Cliven, you think anyone missed your Bagel comments to the guy with the jewish sounding name?

            and sorry i heard the tape on every sports and news cast ALL WEEKEND including the “extended version” but i must have missed those exculpatory snippets you are referring to!! PLEASE share what DTS comments you found so inspiring!!!

            like O’Bummer says, let the ignoramus keep talking!! keep digging yourself deeper, Nubsie!!

            you are the ULTIMATE trOXan!!

          • NOBSisdaMAN

            Just what I thought, you haven’t heard it. Obummer is right, just listen to you and your ilk.

          • why all the dancing around? SHARE the parts of the recording you feel tell the real story!!

            can’t you find the courage of Cliven Bundy to stand tall and speak your mind? why so CHICKEN?? STAND UP for what you believe!

            come on, your trOXan brothers are WAITING!!!

            don’t go all WUSSY on us!!!

          • NOBSisdaMAN

            You’re laughable. It’s the total context. You’re the one that’s chicken, hiding behind Sharpton, Jackson and Obummer. 99%

          • what happened to you??

            the Nubs i fell in love with was a rogue who didn’t care what anyone thought about him! he was edgy, daring, vulgar!!

            now you are too chicken to come out and just admit you agree with DTS’ comments….

            the Moderator has really done a number on you, man. you have been effectively Chemically Castrated!!

            SING for me, darling, with those dulcet falsetto tones!!

          • NOBSisdaMAN

            You’ll be rioting tomorrow night. And I’m not as stupid as you are.

          • don’t worry, we aren’t rioting in Upland.

            Oh, and I’m sure f ucla will keep the donation.

  • mark

    Who allowed that picture of Kobe Bryant in the picture of Sterling? Didn’t we talk about this?

  • barry1817

    guess we should tar and feather all dems as racists, because that is what libs tried to do with Bundy. Nice back fire, again exposing libs for what they are.

    • Aero93

      You mean libs like Fox News? They ran away faster than OJ with a bloody glove.

      • barry1817

        so did libs try and say all conservatives were racist, and now the shoe is on the other foot, and you have no response to the issue.

        Typical of a liberal

        • SaferInWestwood

          “Typical of a liberal” what does that even mean, is that like saying oh I hate my freedoms and too much of the things I get away with is just un Christian like.. .

          • barry1817

            liberals don’t discuss issues they attack people, using Alinsky tactics, as well as projection, deception and deflection to try and change topics, change issue and minimize anyone that disagrees with them, while giving nothing to support their position.

            So the poster runs to Fox news, and OJ simpson, which has no bearing on the post presented, but does serve to deflect, deceive and project their views onto others.

            And the Fox comment is so ingrained as if a person doesn’t listen to what they do, they are somewhat dumb, stupid or irrelevant.

            Sorry but that doesn’t cut it any more.

          • SaferInWestwood

            Sounds a lot like the right if you ask me… .

          • barry1817

            my files are full of liberal responses to comments on issues that respond with “idiot” moron, MFer, and those are the kind comments.

          • Independent_George

            You keep files? You are as cray-cray as your comments suggest.

          • barry1817

            and you spout off with no back up or support, who is crazier, so once more a liberal projecting his own craziness onto others.

            And secret, to keep info isn’t that big a deal, you can cut and paste, it is called simple editing.

          • Independent_George

            I have back-up and support. Even the propaganda sites you visit are no longer claiming Sterling is Democrat, as if it matters.

            It’s you that ignores the evidence.

            I don’t care if you cut and paste or hammer out your dossiers with a chisel and a stone tablet. The fact that you troll comment boards and save comments you object to pretty much cements you as certifiably looney tunes.

          • barry1817

            you have your opinion which I find isn’t worth the pixels you used.

            And since you are projecting that you are a loon, no need to deal with your and your posts in the future.

          • Marylander

            So I take it you won’t be bringing any blacks to Clipper games as well?

            Thanks for giving us insight into your character. Continue on with the ad hominem and straw-man attacks while ignoring the main issue, please.

          • ProbationU

            Yes…of course…all liberals are the same and all conservatives are the same. Noting like generalizations from Barry.

            If you are basing your generalizations on what you see on TV, maybe so. But TV is all ratings driven and it is the loudest people at the extremes that get the biggest ratings. Common sense and nuance don’t pull ratings.

            Bundy is a racist. Sterling is a racist. And yet, the NAACP was set to honor Sterling a 2nd time! Why? $$$$$$. If you have enough money you can buy your way to respectability and certain groups are there to help you along the way. Kobe certainly tried to resurrect his image the same way. There is no guiding political philosophy that explains racism and ignorance.

          • barry1817

            as you project a generalization to make your assertion

        • Independent_George

          Unfortunately, Sterling is a registered Republican.

          • barry1817

            liberals keep saying that, and if he were, it would be a lead part of the story, all reports on this man is that he is a democrat.

          • WEB_Dupree

            Apparently he is a registered Republican but has given money to various Democrats over the years. No big surprise there, given that he is in a liberal city in a liberal state. Lots of people spread their donations around to cover their bases. Not that we have a system of legalized bribery or anything like that!

          • barry1817

            not according to the posts that I put up in response to a previous poster, and not according the news that calls him a democrat.

            Guess they are all wrong and you are right. so post the story or anything that lists him as a dem.

          • WEB_Dupree

            I can never remember the rule on this blog about posting web addresses, but go to www [dot] nationalreview [dot] com/corner/376641/racist-clippers-owner-donald-sterling-has-only-contributed-democrats-tim-cavanaugh and scroll down to the bottom where it says “update,” and they agree that LA County records confirm his GOP registration.

          • ProbationU

   are trying to reason with someone that claimed liberals are old, rich, white racists. I don’t think Barry ever looked at the voting patterns of the last 2 presidential elections. Obama won the vote largely from minorities and women and Romney carried the white male vote.

            Racism comes from both political parties. During the 60’s it was largely Democratic, particularly in the South and in the blue collar, union workers in the Northeast in cities like Boston. After the Civil Rights movement, the Voting Rights Act as well as the Great Society programs, many of the Southern Democrats peeled off to the Republican Party. And now the South is Republican.

            So, Barry, I don’t care whether Sterling is a Republican or a Democrat. I don’t find his views reflective of the majority of either party. It doesn’t reflect on the views of Jews in America. If is solely reflective of Sterling himself. i am not sure why it seems to matter so much to you to lump him in to some group.

          • WEB_Dupree

            ProbationU, none of that is news to me; mainly, I am curious to see whether Barry will accept the word of National Review or dismiss it as part of the liberal media.

          • Independent_George

            Barry is part of the same group of unimaginative trolls, like gotroy22, who have Disqus accounts and like to “travel” outside the confines of Newsmax and World Net Daily bizzarro world dispatches. Wouldn’t be surprised if Barry is none other than gotroy22

          • marvgoux1

            Wrong, racism is alive in well in one party Democrat strongholds like Boston and Chicago. And the myth that the Southern racists switched to Republican is just that. Progressive Southern Democrats like J. William Fulbright and Al Bore Sr gave us Al Bore Jr and BJ Clinton. Since f ucla did such a bad job educating you, go look up what a Yellow Dog Democrat is. Racism comes from all races as we observed with a hundred black almost beating a white man to death in Detroit, the Knock Out Game and the daily utterances of Reverend Al.

          • ProbationU

            Myth? See Strom Thurmond, Jesse Helms amongst others. Review the electoral map. And yes…we know about Robert Byrd…West Virginia Democrat that had been head of the KKK.

            And yes…racism comes from all races and both political parties. But if you missed the Southern Strategy employed by Republicans since Nixon, then I guess you have missed a lot Marv.

          • Jethro G Sabbath

            So there is no racism in the Republican Party?
            None in the Tea Party movement?

          • ProbationU

            Barry…read the bottom of the link you provided to the National Review. He is a registered Republican. He donated to Democrats. Probably a business decision based upon California politics….just like his donations to the NAACP. Politics makes strange bedfellows. At the end of the day, he is just a scumbag that has nothing to do with his party registration.

          • Independent_George

            He is a registered republican. Bunch of people have checked the LA County Recorders site. It is confirmed so deal with it.

            A problem some “Libruls” have with conservatives is their unfortunate tendency toward reactionary and reductive reasoning. He gave to the NAACP. And Gray Davis more than 10 years ago! He must be a Democrat!

            Rich people give to lots of organizations. And politicians. The Koch brothers have given and still give lots to the NAACP, still give lots to PBS, and, in the past, have given to Democratic candidates. Donald Trump gave lots and lots of money to former Chicago mayor Richard Daley. So Trump is a Democrat?

            Rich people pay for access. It’s is part and parcel of being rich.

          • barry1817

            post the information, or stop the nonsense.

          • Independent_George

            Washington Post. Or you could google Donald Sterling Republican.

            Or you could stay ensconced in your right-wing cocoon and post comments on World News Daily posts.

    • SUCC de trop

      Have you actually read Bundy’s racist comments? To paraphase Bundy, people on welfare and with nothing to do would be better off as slaves. Somehow a women with kids getting food stamps is somehow worse than a cheap rancher who refuses to pay his cattle grazing on public land tab. That’s money out of your pocket Barry old man. All the other ranchers in the general area pay their fees and those same ranchers have condemned Bundy as a man who throws nickels around like manhole covers, and do not support him.

      • Toejam For Life

        Now, are you reading the edited version to make him look like a racist or the full version? They are two different versions.

        • ProbationU

          Well, Toejam if you are unclear about Bundy being a racist then you may want to listen to the statement again. Bundy is a redneck freeloader. I wouldn’t call him a Conservative. He is just ignorant of the world outside Mesquite, Nevada. He was getting a free lunch and does not want to pay his bill. I don’t see that as a political philosophy.

      • barry1817

        edited version that you post, and you miss the concept.

        As to Old Man, that is a snide comment from you,

        And talking about ranchers and fees, is changing the topic to divert from your comment.

        So is the black person on government welfare really that much better off, and have much hope of changing their life, or should government just take care of them cradle to grave.

        And if the government is taking care of a person, cradle to grave isn’t that just a form of government imposed indenturedness on the person, that could be likened to being in a yoke of servitude.

        • ProbationU

          There is no possible way that you were actually educated at USC. I am not a Trojan by any means, but you simply cannot have earned a degree there.

            Actually, I think he or she just proved to you that he most definitely did earn a degree there.

  • john wolcott

    Sterling is the most self-congratulatory person in the country. Although apparently he is not responsible for the above ad, he takes out full page ads every time he makes a donation. At $2-billion net worth, a million or two is chump change to this character.

    And that is what he apparently gave over the last 4 years to his latest fling. And when the latest fling got sued by Ms. Sterling, and the fling knew her gig was up, she then decided to “get even,” for whatever reason

    And to expose Sterling for who he is is not really news.

    • Independent_George

      There was an LA Weekly story years ago about how and why Sterling does this. He has been doing it for decades. One time he completely made up an award, then announced he won it in the LA Times.

  • WEB_Dupree

    This would have been even more hilarious if the guy in the middle, Dr. Ira Kurtz, was black, but the smiling Kobe on the facing page is still pretty great.

  • grave soul

    A cursory look at the back and forth diatribe of Republiturd/Neoconservative usc grads/fans on this page makes for a quick demonstration of just how idiotic, hypocritical, and spineless usc grads and fans really are. Do they teach much (if any) critical thinking at usc?? Not by the looks of it.

    I’ve noticed that usc fans rarely, if ever, have the guts to confront the racist, ultraconservative/idiotic (same difference) things that their fellow usc brethren often post. What, are they scared at how the racists/imbeciles will respond? They must have gotten burned badly (by the majority of reactionaries) for speaking up as usc students. Grads of virtually every top school in this country would never stand for this nonsense…just one more example of how and why usc will never be a top school in any meaningful way.

    The truly top flight institutions around the country don’t have time for this backwards looking and thinking (although Liberty University might want to co-opt usc as its West Coast campus…maybe that will solve your PSL dilemma).

      Hi Chuck!


      I’d rather have them venting on a blog than blowing up federal buildings.

      • like O’Bummer says, you just let ’em keep talking!!

      • grave soul

        …and blow up federal buildings they would.

    • WEB_Dupree

      Gravy, I don’t know how you can spend so much time lurking on this blog and yet still not understand that most of the appeal of this forum comes from the DN’s incredibly high tolerance for offensive comments, off-topic shenanigans, and irrelevant political harangues.

      I mean, look at Barry up there. In support of his argument that Sterling is a registered Democrat, he posts a link to a National Review piece that confirms that Sterling is a registered Republican. And you would have us silence this man?

      I dread the day that some moderator actually starts to seriously police this place. I have gotten so many laughs over the years from this forum — from others’ comments, and from my own clowning around. If the price of tolerance for my multiple usernames is tolerance for others’ Fox Nation-style posts, then so be it.

      • grave soul

        You make a good point. What some usc fans don’t seem to understand, which is very simple really, is that the reason UCLA fans come to Wolf’s blog is first and foremost because of the entertainment factor (Wang’s blog is boooring); based on what you just wrote, I guess there are laughs for fans of both schools. Love or hate Wolf, he is way more on top of trojan sports than Wang and he posts provocative write ups, which keep people coming back. That makes DN higher ups happy, guaranteeing Wolf a stable job and a fat paycheck (or maybe not so much regarding the latter?).

        As for Barry, he’s a joke…but he’s a funny, funny joke.

        • WESTWOOD ROB

          Wang’s blog is about as exciting as a trip to church, and it looks like most of his readers only stop by about once a week, just like church.

    • i was amazed (that doesn’t happen much anymore) how many jive trOXans actually tried to suggest both Cliven and Donald’s comments were taken out of context!!

      even the kooks on Fox, (who had championed Cliven for weeks) stated unequivocally that these comments were NOT taken out of context!

      so our beloved Dummies are to the right and less logical than the Fox Comedy network?? awesome!!

      i don’t make ’em up paly!!

      • grave soul

        That’s some scary ish…too many of these trojan fans know no bounds when it comes to defending racists and right-wing loonies.

        If even Faux News won’t defend Bundy and Sterling, how nuts and backwards are the usc fans who are defending them on this blog?

        • Jethro G Sabbath

          How hard will you try to make it seem like that actually happened?

          • grave soul

            At times, even marvgoux jumps on the slippery slope mobile.

          • Jethro G Sabbath

            Mr Soul,

            Yes, some posters here are very offensive at times but I have not seen one example of someone defending Sterling. Keep stirring the pot if it makes you feel better.

            BTW, do you know Charlie Bucket?
            The two of you use the same nicknames for certain posters.

          • WEB_Dupree

            This has turned into a long-running thread! In fairness to our “guests” from Wang’s blog, Nobs did say that Sterling’s words are being taken out of context. I suppose that counts as defending him, in the sense that I can’t really imagine what sort of “context” would have made those remarks acceptable.

            Unless they were just rehearsing lines from Sterling’s upcoming one-act play, “The Racist NBA Owner and the Gold-Digging Mistress”!

          • what was also amusing is that besides insisting DTS was taken out of context, Nubs also declared that Sterling’s mistake was getting caught, because obviously, Magic and Bucket say these things about “whites” in private….that’s why BuckterlovesNubs!!

            by the way, be ready to deal with the accusation you are actually Bucket. that’s Jezro’s response to everything these days.

          • WEB_Dupree

            I will say that I was surprised that the other owners were okay with Silver dropping the hammer on Sterling because I cannot believe that there are not other owners who say equally offensive stuff in private. Are they really so confident that they have never been taped and will never be taped?

          • it’s a wake up call for them i’m sure, but they can’t take the chance of being perceived as sympathetic to the old racist.

            Nubs’ twisted views notwithstanding, i would dare guess even fair-minded and enlightened liberals such as myself could scarcely withstand the scrutiny of our most private conversions being made public!

            to those who say Karma does not exist, i say it does, only Karma does not reckon time as we do, so Instant Karma rarely manifests, although it is sugary sweeet when it does!

          • Jethro G Sabbath


            Your antics here alone would cost you your franchise in no time.

          • grave soul

            All jabs aside, I appreciate you being fair and simply stating a fact. nubs did try to excuse Sterling’s racist comments. And we all know that nubs’s comments are almost always followed by swift and eager “thumbs up” by the Fail character, and vice versa. If nothing else, this Sterling incident is forcing people everywhere to take a closer look at their racist or otherwise unsavory views. I know Barry has followed trojan football, but I’m not sure if he’s a usc fan…because ol’ boy Barry sure provide a lot of fodder for cannons.

            Not even Fox “News” Channel has been able to spin Sterling and Bundy’s comments with their propaganda machine.
