Magic Johnson said will pray for Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling

Johnson does not have AIDS, he was diagnosed as HIV positive. And he has, in fact, done quite a lot to help many communities. The Magic Johnson Foundation has raised millions for charity and “works to develop programs and support community-based organizations that address the educational, health and social needs of ethnically diverse, urban communities.”

As Cooper pointed out, many Americans are still misinformed about HIV. Johnson acknowledged that discrimination is “our biggest fight in the HIV and AIDS community… we’ve got to continue to educate people just like Donald Sterling.” He added, “I hope this doesn’t set us back. The stigma’s still there.” Despite misinformation, “You can high five a person with HIV, it’s okay… Your kid can go to school with somebody, a kid who has HIV. There is nothing that is going to happen to them.”

In response to Sterling’s claim that the Clippers players still “love me,” Johnson declared, “Really? Now he is delusional.”
