How is it that when Johnson's sexual escapades are brought up and that he became HIV positive related , the next statement that always comes up is his charity work for AIDS related issues?

Just what exactly, did he do for the betterment of those afflicted BEFORE he became so? It appears that Johnson was anything but a user of others before he found a cause and only found a cause because he became HIV positive.

The fan is on high.

What do most people do for HIV+ people? I'm not sure what your point is. Are we all supposed to go around helping everybody with every disease?

What have YOU done for somebody with cancer today? What have YOU done for somebody with hepatitis today? What have YOU done for somebody with MS today?

Who is "we"?

The thread is about Magic Johnson, just in case you don't know. If you can't manage to stay somewhat on topic, there is always the other place.

Don't worry, Donald Sterling is exposing Magic and the rest of the "African-American" community

"“I spend millions on giving away, and helping minorities. Does [Magic Johnson] do that? Jews, when they get successful, they will help their people. And some of the African-American – maybe I’ll get in trouble again – they don’t want to help anybody. What has Magic Johnson really done for children’s hospitals? Where kids are lying in the hallways? They’re sick. They need a bed. What has he done for any hospital? What has he done for any group? I don’t know. Maybe he’s done a lot.”"

He is spot on.

Right. I'm sure Michael J. Fox wasn't crusading for Parkinson's Disease research before he was diagnosed, either.

Sterling said he's not racist.

I don't know. I don't throw around the word racist on a whim like so many do nowadays.
