L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling has finally apologized for the racist remarks he made while chastising his bi-racial girlfriend for posting black people on her Instagram page. Speaking with CNN's Anderson Cooper in an exclusive interview set to air today, Donald, 81, said he's not racist.
"When I listen to that tape, I don't even know how I can say words like that.... I don't know why the girl had me say those things."
"You're saying you were set up?" Cooper asked.
"Well yes, I was baited," Sterling said. "I mean, that's not the way I talk. I don't talk about people for one thing, ever. I talk about ideas and other things. I don't talk about people. I'm not a racist. I made a terrible, terrible mistake. And I'm here with you today to apologize and to ask for forgiveness for all the people that I've hurt.
