Skip to comments.NAACP Willing to 'Forgive' Clippers' Donald Sterling After Yanking Award
Posted on 04/28/2014 4:47:26 PM PDT by Brad from Tennessee
The NAACP said today they are still willing to work with Los Angeles Clippers' owner Donald Sterling despite yanking an offer of a lifetime achievement award over an audio tape containing racist comments that Sterling allegedly made.
At a news conference today, NAACP Los Angeles president Leon Jenkins said that an audio recording that surfaced this weekend on TMZ, which purportedly had Sterling's voice recorded making racist comments, was "devastating."
But the organization would be open to talking to Sterling, with whom they've worked for nearly 20 years.
"God teaches us to forgive, and the way I look at it, after a sustained period of proof to the African American community that those words don't reflect his heart, I think there's room for forgiveness. I wouldn't be a Christian if I said there wasn't," Jenkins said.
"We are negotiating with him about giving more moneys to African American students at UCLA, and so we are in preliminary discussions," Jenkins said. He also noted, however, they had not spoken since the scandal broke. . .

They will “forgive” him for how much money?
Which translates to “Just give us more money and this will all be forgotten” guess the NAACP(Which is one of the most racist organizations) found out Sterling if a flaming liberal, they decided they will welcome him back to the flock for some dough
Don’t they have a lot to answer for, in giving an award to him?
Forgive... with strings attached! Lol shocked!
I don’t guess that whites will ever get up off thier knees.
The dirty little secret is there is far more closet rapists in the Democrat party than you will hear about.
What does it take for the NAACP to kiss a white racist’s hind end? I don’t know, $50 million?
Money trumps the race card!
The race card is practically worthless against a liberal like this idiot. It makes the complete opposite point that they’re trying to indoctrinate.
Earlier they said they intended to return all money Sterling had donated to NAACP. I guess a quick accounting told them that would bankrupt them. So now they’re backpedaling by going “Christian” and hoping to get their hands on more of Sterling’s money.
So basically, they're a bunch of hoes.
‘Rats of a feather, party together.
The stick 'em up has begun! Of course it's always about money!
In the NAACP their God is their “bitch”...
Some can AFFORD their forgiveness some cannot..
It ain’t cheap.. costs you honor and principles..
Their poster-boy is Barry Half-White.. who lives in the White-Hut..
They were claiming they were going to return his money.
Hah ha! I bet they already spent it on their ownselves.
