In 2009, the Los Angeles chapter of the NAACP honored Donald Sterling with a Lifetime Achievement Award. Soon after the announcement was made, much of the world learned of Sterling's unrepentant racism thanks to Elgin Baylor's employment discrimination lawsuit. --SNIP-- The NAACP's Los Angeles chapter has now twice combined an awful decision with even worse timing. On May 15, 2014, Donald Sterling is set to receive another Lifetime Achievement Award. Sterling also won the 2008 NAACP Presidents Award.

That might be true, but it still doesn’t rule out my hypothesis, too.

Watch for it. This ‘honor ceremony’ will be postponed for more thorough review. Since it mainly revolves around money opportunites, he’ll probably get it anyway, sometime in the fall, when no ones. looking.

Democrats can’t be racist, no matter how racist they might be. Remember Sheets Bird?

I also wonder if he’s the reason the NAACP stays solvent.

I think their crack usage has shortened their memories.

Every other week in the LA Crimes biz section there is an ad announcing some award Sterling has received or some award dinner he will be the honoree at. Today there was one.

He pays for the ads.

He owns every other high rise apartment/condo building west of downtown LA and he does spread some $$$$ around the community, but he’s very self-aggrandizing.

As far as I know he is still married to Shelly. The tape was done by his ex-girlfriend. Can’t tell the players without a scorecard.

He has held the clippers back forever and now his story is dominating their first round of the playoffs.

Interesting to see how they do today. perhaps the experience of Rivers and Paul can get them past this.

The NAACP cancelled - but I’m sure they’ll be ‘honoring’ lots of liberal elites in the future who feel the exact same way. Oh, and oddly enough the fact that his man gave much money to liberal elites is NOT being played up...

Never forget the thought police will absolutely ruin your life if you utter one thought that is not politically-correct. Not in your home, not to a good friend, not to a doctor. Tell anyone that you don’t like a black man or a sodomite, or or anyone that’s included in the media’s “protected class”, and if someone has it out for you YOUR LIFE IS RUINED.

Resistance is futile. From Clive Bundy to this sports team owner, their life for all intents and purposes is over.

The first ones in the media to throw you the dogs will be Faux News. They have to keep up their image of being “fair and balanced”. If that means throwing someone under the bus for daring to have an opinion that the liberal media does not like, Faux News will willingly do them the favor.
