Independent Journal Review ^ | 4/27/14 | Michael Hausam

The NAACP is scheduled to award L.A. Clippers owner and Democrat supporter Donald T. Sterling a lifetime achievement award next month, adding to the controversy about racist comments he allegedly made to his girlfriend. Charges of racism against Sterling are not new, having been sued by his 22-year employee and basketball star Elgin Baylor in 2009 (which was thrown out of court) and also settling a housing discrimination lawsuit. On the other hand, he received a previous lifetime achievement award from the NAACP in 2009 and the President’s Award from them in 2008. Alice Huffman, president of the NAACP California State Conference,

I’m interested in this controversy, precisely because Sterling is a Democrat and has been honored in the past. The liberals can eat their own sometimes. Can’t wait to see how this plays out.

But, in this case, the liberals and the media cannot shout with glee that this is some tea party sympathizer clinging to guns and religion. He’s one of their own.

Tucker Carlson nailed it this morning on Fox. Sterling already had a bad rep. on race relations. He undoubtedly bought off the local L.A. chapter of the NAACP with a nice check for his phony award to help with his credibility. Will the NAACP return the check? Crickets.

I listened to the tape as released by TMZ. To me it sounds as if the girlfriend was setting him up to say certain things. It makes you wonder why the girl was secretly taping what sounded like a lover’s quarrel.

I wonder how much he paid the NAACP, and whether that donation will be returned.

This should be fun to watch as it plays out. Sterling is a Democrat. The media cannot say he’s some tea party gun glinger. Of course, they can say he is in the evil1% if they want to go there.

I wonder if anybody will wonder why he has such a young girlfriend, and what does he see in her, and also, what does she see in him. I wonder if the fact that the girl is of mixed race ethnicity will be mentioned as they move to denounce Sterling as a racist.

He's a Rat? Not at all surprising.The overwhelming majority of this nation's “one percent” are.So when can we expect him to make reference to “white niggers” as one prominent (and powerful) Rat did on national TV a few years back?

Well, he does let his half-black girlfriend screw any black guys she wants, so he has that going for him.

Yes. You can have one as a girlfriend. You can let her have sex with black men at her pleasure. But you are a racist if you don’t want her to entertain them in public, apparently. Very weird all around.

I’m thinking he was trying to be funny with his initial statement and it backfired.

He’ll buy off the feigned outrage. Nothing to see here. Move along.
