Bundy, Sterling, Richardson, and Rape Culture

On this week’s podcast, we go deep into Donald Sterling and Cliven Bundy’s misadventures in racism, plus Terry Richardson, rogue frats, and America’s rape culture.

Rape Culture

Courtesy of the dailyprincetonian.com:
 
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 19 percent of college-aged women have experienced an attempted or completed sexual assault since entering college (which is not to say that sexual assault does not occur for males).
 
But I do not hate my perpetrator. I do not think he was or is a bad person, and I am capable of forgiving him. Nor do I hate the eating clubs or varsity sports teams or the Greek system, institutions that are sites of sexual assault on college campuses across the nation. Eating clubs are not the problem. I hate the culture — the rape culture — that creates otherwise decent people who do completely indecent things. This culture exists here, at other Ivies, at other colleges and outside of college environments entirely. Beyond the eating clubs, rape culture already manifests itself elsewhere on campus. There is no stereotypical picture of where, or to whom, sexual assault occurs or does not occur.
 
Within this culture, we view men’s aggressive behavior as an acceptable norm. When survivors and their allies try to challenge these aspects of culture we are brushed aside, entirely because they are so engrained. Given the high instance of sexual assault in America, in combination with some of the lowest reporting rates among all crimes, we should not question the legitimacy of those who may have been terrified to put to words what happened to them. Statistically, someone in your precept or hallway has had it happen to him or her. All of these survivors’ narratives need to be listened to and validated. Norms can change and I challenge us all — students on all college campuses — to change them.
 

Cliven Bundy

Cliven Bundy has been fighting the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) for more than 20 years. The Bundy family has owned its ranch since the 1870s. He does not recognize the federal government. Environmentalist are also attacking the BLM over the Bundy Ranch. The BLM is responsible for more than 245 million acres of public land nationwide, and they own 81% of all land in Nevada. Bundy’s supporters have roots in the Sagebrush Rebellion which Harry Reid also opposed. The FAA has established a no fly-zone over the Bundy ranch, and bundy himself has received thousands of dollars in donations.
 

Donald Sterling

Donald sterling was born Donald Terkowitz in Los Angeles where he went to high school, college and law school. Sterling is a lawyer whose wealth comes from real estate. He owned the Malibu Yacht Club, the Beverly Comstock Hotel, and scores of apartments in Beverly Hills. He has a reputation for buying properties in disrepair, fixing them, and upping the rents.
 
In 1979, Sterling bought 11 Santa Monica apartments from another Los Angeles real estate magnate, Jerry Buss. Buss used the money to buy the Los Angeles Lakers. Buss pitched pro basketball to Sterling as a great investment and encouraged him to go after the professional team in San Diego, the Clippers. In 1981, Sterling purchased the San Diego Clippers. The asking price was $12.5 million. Sterling got the team on a layaway plan, assuming almost $10 million in debt and deferred compensation.
 
In 1984, when Sterling moved the Clippers from San Diego to Los Angeles, he failed to seek the NBA’s approval for the relocation, and the league fined him $25 million. Sterling sued the league for $100 million and withdrew the suit when the league agreed to reduce his fine to $6 million.
 
Sterling was sued by the U.S. Department of Justice for racially discriminatory practices involving his Los Angeles rental properties. According to the lawsuit, Sterling wouldn’t rent to non-Koreans in Koreatown and wouldn’t allow any African-Americans to rent his Beverly Hills properties. According to the suit, Sterling said he did not like to rent to “Hispanics” because “Hispanics smoke, drink, and just hang around the building.” He also stated that “black tenants smell and attract vermin.” Sterling settled with the Justice Department in 2005 for a record $2.73 million, the largest ever obtained by the government in a discrimination case involving apartment rentals.
 

Terry Richardson

Courtesy of buzzfeed.com:
 
Editors from Vanity Fair, GQ, and New York Magazine have indicated that they have not ruled out working with Richardson in the future. James Reginato from Vanity Fair said that the magazine “had not worked with Richardson extensively in the past,” but made no comment on future plans. Eric Sullivan from GQ, who hired Richardson to shoot for its March 2014 issue, said he was not sure if the magazine had any upcoming projects with Richardson. New York magazine’s editor-in-chief Adam Moss expressed a similar sentiment. When asked about the publication’s future with Richardson, Moss responded: “I don’t know that I have an answer to that question.”
