Donald Sterling, the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers who was banned from the NBA for making racist comments, on Sunday issued an apology.
“I made a mistake and I’m apologizing and I’m asking for forgiveness,” Sterling told CNN. “Am I entitled to one mistake, am I, after 35 years? I mean, I love my league, I love my partners. Am I entitled to one mistake? It’s a terrible mistake, and I’ll never do it again. … I’m not a racist. I made a terrible mistake. I’m here to apologize.”
