"Donald Sterling to pay $2.725 million to settle housing discrimination lawsuit


Letter to the Times

Re "Donald Sterling to pay $2.725 million to settle housing discrimination lawsuit," Nov.3

LA Clippers owners Shelly and Donald T. Sterling are two of the least racist people I know.

I am a Latino who grew up in the same Boyle Heights neighborhood of East Los Angeles as Shelly and Donald. The couple has hosted me court-side at roughly 100 home games since 2003. Further, I have been in their home on countless occasions, and consider myself part of their extended family.

Though countless people of color and I were prepared to testify about the Sterlings' great character and non-discriminatory policies, I applaud their decision to put their staff and the people of Los Angeles ahead of their own business interests.

Our City needs more leaders like Shelly and Donald T. Sterling.
