The conversation, which was first published by TMZ, was captured by Sterling's girlfriend, V. Stiviano. In the conversation, Sterling referred to "Instagrams" of Stiviano with African American men and asked her not to post such images.
"You can sleep with [black people]," Sterling stated. "You can bring them in, you can do whatever you want. The little I ask you is not to promote it on that ... and not to bring them to my games."
