I made the point on a previous blog about how the exclusive NBA owners club had to know about Donald
Tokowitz’s Sterling’s progressive views on race relations. His wife since 1955 said she was not a racist. Now the LA Times says she may have spewed a few hateful comments herself.
If I had a few billion dollars, I’d look happier. But, I digress.
By now you know “The Donald” of the west coast gathered some serious wealth in real estate. Some slums. Some really nice places. He’s “diversified” as they say in financial circles.
Rochelle (some call her “Shelly”) would inspect their properties, sometimes posing as a health inspector according to testimony. In 2009, during a deposition, a fellow named Darrell Rhodes testified he asked for a reduction in rent. He said her response was, “Who do you think you are, you black mother f*****.”
I’m guessing Darrell didn’t get the cheaper rent.
In another 2009 deposition, a lady named Maira Oliva, who is now a former building manager for the
Tokowitz Sterling clan, testified Rochelle said to her on a visit, “Oh my God. This is so filthy. I can’t remodel my apartments the way that I want because Latinos are so filthy.”
At least she didn’t claim “Shelly” dropped a Latino mother f*****.
You know how people begin to look alike after living together for a period of time. I’m guessing the same can be said for progressive views on race relations.
