Donald Sterling's son-in-law latest to lash out at Sterling over racist comments


Donald Sterling's son-in-law is the latest to come out and voice his support against the deeply maligned Clippers owner.

Eric Miller, Director of Basketball Operations for the Clippers, recently told TMZ Sports that his father-in-law is ignorant and racist, adding that he doesn't care if standing up against racism might ultimately cost him his job.

"I find the statements and representations made by the Clippers' team owner to be deplorable and disgusting.  There is no room in sports or society in general, for racism."

Miller goes on:  "I pledge my full support for the wonderful players, coaches and staff members of the Clippers organization.  I have complete faith that Commissioner Silver will deal with this matter swiftly and severely."

And then Miller says, "If these comments should happen to cost me my employment with the team, it is but a small price to pay to speak out against ignorance and racism."

Miller is the husband of Sterling's daughter, Joanna Sterling Miller.
