Toxic Donald Sterling’s Body Language Shows More Racisim, No Sincere Apology, Distain Towards Magic Johnson

ImageDonald Sterling’s leaked private conversation with girlfriend V. Stiviano told us in no uncertain terms he had racist views. He then tried to spin it with another “leaked” tape, which in my view, he leaked personally, this time. In that tape he talks to a friend and says how he said all of those racist things because he was trying to impress V. Stiviano and get her into bed. CNN’s Anderson Cooper asks him if he trusts anyone because his most recent tape was “leaked.”.As you can see in the screen shot above, Sterling licks his lips when asked this question. To me is a clear signal of deception and reveals that he no doubt leaked those tapes himself. He doesn’t answer Cooper’s question,  which  also speaks volumes about his role in the newly “leaked” tape.

He then says that he doesn’t do interviews and that the only one he talked to was Magic Johnson. That made no sense as Magic is not the media to whom he would give an interview. Sterling  goes on to say he spoke to Magic Johnson twice and said “He knew the girl.”  said in a surprised tone.” By calling Stiviano “the girl” it is clear that Sterling has distanced himself from Stivino. On the “leaked” conversation between Stiviano and Sterling, Stiviano claimed to Sterling that she didn’t t know Magic. But now Sterling finds out that Magic does know “the girl” as he said that Magic apparently “knew the girl well.”

When  Anderson Copper asked if Sterling apologized to Magic.  Sterling looks down and  hems and haws  as she says “uh uh if I said anything wrong then I’m sorry.” In essence he is saying that he did not apologize to Magic. He also says “if” I said anything wrong which says that he still does not believe he said anything wrong.

Though his words say Magic “is a good person” Sterling’s body and facial language leak out something completely different. They leak out disdain for Magic. In fact , Sterling’s next words show his true feelings as he cuts Magic down by saying that he doesn’t think Magic has done everything he can to help minorities.

Image

Then Sterling looks down and says “I’ll say it” as h.e shrugs his shoulders, “He’s great.” But he doesn’t believe that Magic is great as he shakes his head “no,” and also purses his lips in anger. He then goes on to say how he doesn’t think Magic Johnson is “a good example for the children of Los Angeles.”

Image

Sterling says he made “a terrible terrible mistake and he is here to apologize.” But he does’t say he is sorry with his words or his body language. His tone is monotone and his face is moonfaced. There is no sincere emotion when he makes this statement. Deep down it reveals that he really does’t think he did anything wrong. Even though he feigns remorse and hurting “so many innocent people, “he finally reveals that he hurt himself. That si the bottom line. If he feels bad about anything it is that these words leaked out, which hurt his standing as a Clipper’s owner. He is also a very bad actor as he draw out the /o/ sound while saying ” I’m soooo sorry. I am so apologetic.” No one says they are apologetic.  Instead, they say they apologize if they were being sincere.

But just when you think Sterling’s public persona can’t get any worse, it does.  In his  voluntary interview on national TV with CNN’s Anderson Cooper he says that “Magic acts so holy even though he made love to every girl in every city” in America and he had Aids. What he has done is accuse Magic of knowingly spreading the AIDS virus to women across America. This is slander. I am sure that Magic’s attorney knows this as well.  Talk like that will  no doubt add to Magic’s financial coffers. so it will be even easier for Magic to afford the team.

Then Sterling goes on to say when Magic has “those AIDS” he went to his synagogue and prayed for him. In essence by saying this, Sterling  is trying to tell us how good  a person he is and how self righteous he is.  But  he  says it with anger through his clenched fists which reflects how  deep down he clearly detests Magic.

But on the next breath he says that he could have criticized Magic for getting AIDS but he didn’t, yet another lame attempt at showing how magnanimous he is. Then he asks Anderson Cooper what Magic Johnson has done. Anderson replies that he is a business person. Sterling immediately interjects “He has AIDS.”  In essence Sterling has just said that all Magic has done with his life is get AIDS. Anderson corrects him that Magic has HIV not AIDS.

Then Sterling goes over the top yet corrects himself with regards to Aids. He now says that” Magic Johnson made love to every girl in America and catches HIV “. He then then says he thinks Magic should be ashamed of himself and go into the background. What Sterling is doing  here in psychological terms is protecting. He is ashamed of himself and knows very well that he is the one who needs to be in the background, not Magic.

He adds insult to injury by saying that Magic does nothing for the Black people and then stops himself short by saying there is no such thing as African Americas which further displays  his racism.

Image

In fact he realizes at this moment as you can see in the above screen shot, that he has just dug himself even deeper into the racism pit as body language wise he covers his mouth as to stop himself from saying more. He even apologizes as he knows very well what he just did.

Then he says “they” all want to play golf with him. Clearly the “they”  he is referring to are Black people. He then says he does’t think “Magic is a good example for the children of Los Angeles and then get AIDS.” Even though Cooper previously corrected him that it was HIV and not AIDS, Sterling  still insists that Magic has AIDS. In essence he is once again blaming Magic for getting AIDS.

Not only does he disparage Magic with these comments, he says Magic does nothing to help minorities but “he” Donald Sterling “gives away millions to help minorities. Once again Sterling ties to show how righteous and good he is. He then asks  Cooper ” Does he do that?” In essence, Sterling is saying that Magic Johnson does’t give Millions to minorities.

Image

Once again we see the rage in his body language as he talks about Magic as we see Sterling’s clenched fists. Then he once agin shows his racist colors by saying how Jews, when they get successful will help their people but that Blacks don’t do the same.  He then admits that he might get in trouble again for what he has to say as he states “maybe they don’t want to help anybody.” In essence he is saying that Blacks don;t want to help anybody,

He begs to be forgiven, but his body language  and facial language shows that he is insincere. He does’t think he did anything wrong.

Hearing the Toxic words  that ha=ve come out of Sterling’s mouth has me convinced more than ever that that there no place for such backwards and Neanderthal thinking in the NBA. After hearing this racist and hate filled interview, I cannot imagine any team owner not voting to remove him. Now it is no longer about the leaked private racially charged tapes that were made public by V. Stiviano or her minions. Now it is Sterling by himself who voluntarily showed his ignorance and  racism to the world through his interview which has no doubt left many speechless.

His ugly and very Toxic swipes at Magic are his warped attempt to disparage Magic in hopes of swaying public opinion against Magic so that he won’t be supported in purchasing the team. But it all backfired and alienated even more people as most wonder what kind of Toxic insensitive person could actually blame another person for catching a sickness. Magic is a hero and despite his HIV- not AIDS, he has been able to flourish and become a leader in the Black community. He has shown that an HIV diagnosis is not a death sentence and that one can live a productive life. He has given people jobs and invested money to start businesses in the Black community for years. Everyone knows this about Magic. For Sterling to distort the facts about Magic shows just how desperate Sterling is feeling these days. His whole world is caving in on him and he knows it. We all saw it in this interview.

  1. What a load of bull hooey. Who is this charlatan?

    This is stuff right of the medieval world of con-artists and miracle elixirs.

    There are as many ways to interact socially as there are people in the world. This Glass sounds like the kind of self credited expert we are now seeing with Blood splatter experts. Complete hoax. And plenty of people to fall for it.

    1. Kenneth Myers, I can assure you I am not a charlatan but rather a highly educated and well credentialed professional.Body language analysis is both an art an a science and has been used in law enforcement, including the FBI By name calling like you did in this post you are subjecting yourself to legal ramifications= defamation. I suggest you examine my bio at http://www.drlillianglass.com before making such false claims.

      1. Has been used by law enforcement and FBI?? Body language has and is used by everyone from the day we can see, days after we are born. All of us analyze body language… It is a part of human nature. Some of us through specialized experience and training (like you) are able to articulate and are more consciously aware of it than others.

        I really like reading what you have to say, but like I said before there is really no need for you to pull rank. Any person of average intelligence can read your blogs and tell that by your choice of words, the way you convey ideas and the structure that the person doing it is highly skilled, educated and experienced. Your blogs speak for itself… Anyone who doesn’t see this, is at the very least a poor observer.

  2. Dr Glass, spot on as always.

    Please consider also giving your thoughts on the Solange elevator video–I am sure many people like me would like to see your analysis.

  3. I wonder… Why was he interviewed by Anderson Cooper in the first place? I do not think they interviewed Shaquille O’neal, so why him? Very unpleasant people like Shaq and Donald should not be given air time. They love being in front of the camera and hearing themselves talk regardless of how stupid they sound.

  4. If you were an old man, paying for a million dollar whore, and she is seen with other guys, you would lash out at whoever, young white college guys, stockbrokers or african americans. Especially, if you suspect she is putting out what you are paying for, to a guy known to have HIV.
    He’s an old man, she got him talking and taped it, because his wife is sueing her. No one says, that stinking whore tricked him into saying all that. Yeah, it was crude and racist, but in this sort of relationship, what did you expect?
    He’s a billionaire, in his 80’s, what’s he got to lose?

  5. Will you do one on the woman? V. (whatever her name is) She has been on Dr. Phil and Entertainment Tonight. Just wondering.

  6. Donald Sterling expresses contempt for Magic Johnson, not because he is Black, but because he had a photograph taken with Sterling’s mistress, and one day after she released the altered, illegally taped “racist” comments, he offered to buy the Clippers. In Magic Johnson’s autobiography he revealed that he had sex with women without telling them that he had HIV. This is the reason Sterling showed contempt for Magic Johnson. It is silly to maintain that any criticism of a Black person is racist. Many times the criticism is valid, as here.

    1. Thank you for sharing this. I had no idea Magic never told the women he slept with that he didn’t have HIV. Perhaps he didn’t know he as HIV positive at the time. If he knew this ahead of time and didn’t tell this is unconscionable. And you are right about Sterling being taped illegally by this dispicable mistress who wanted 15 minutes of fame.
