Slate: Hey, Donald Sterling, Asian Americans don’t need your kind of support

Donald SterlingLos Angeles Clippper owner Donald Sterling had an uneasy relationship with Asian Americans that might give some people the creeps.

He wanted so much to rid his apartments of African American tenants that he put up Korean flags around his building, changed the name to Korean World Towers, and stated his preference for Korean tenants in his ads, reports Slate.

It didn’t work because a judge hearing a discrimination suit filed by black and Latino tenants barred him from using the word Korean in his building names or ads.

His real estate business had 30 Asian employees, 26 of them were women. ESPN reported one employee said Sterling would “tell me that I needed to learn the ‘Asian way’ from his younger girls because they knew how to please him.”

So how have Asian Americans reacted to all this? You can read about that in Slate.
