The president of the Los Angeles chapter of the NAACP resigned Thursday, following scrutiny of his plan to give Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling an award for promoting civil rights.

...

Jenkins explained that Sterling had been selected owing to his history of donating to minority charities and giving game tickets to inner-city children. The Donald T. Sterling Charitable Foundation gave $5,000 to the NAACP’s Los Angeles chapter in 2010, according to tax records, and Sterling was listed as his foundation’s only contributor. There were no records of further NAACP contributions in 2011 or 2012, the latest years for which records were available.

If some newspaper needs a really cool story that hasn't been washed by Democrats they can interview some of the 'children' who used those tickets... I'd be surprised if half the tickets were given to inner city poor kids...

NAACP is chock full of disreputable characters — and its racism is as bad as that of the Klan.

I’d be surprised if all the money even made it to the ticket booth.

I just reserved exposingNBAowners.com
Anyone want to work on it?

Are we ready for scorched earth fun? Besides a team of attorneys, Sterling is going to have a team of private investigators looking for dirt on every owner who votes him off the island. Affairs, bribes, kickbacks, etc are going to be all over TMZ.

I like Rush's version:

NAALCP - National Assoc. for the Advancement of Liberal Colored People.

Black's on the Right don't count.

Yes...and if the word colored is offensive, why aren’t they using the PC term: NAAPOC, Natl Assoc of People of Color? I’m a person of color myself. Kind of pink-ish beige.

LOL. Comedian George Carline mentioned you and the other absurdities about race:

People of Color

Thanks—great!

Teresa Heinz Kerry could technically be called an African-American given her birthplace...

Obama is described as black yet his mother was of the same race as my late mother—white. (Also, a bit of trickery here, but I could say that Barack Obama is dead and Ted Kennedy is alive. It’s true. Barack Obama _Sr_ is dead while Ted Kennedy _Jr_ is alive... )

Also Carlin says:
>>Liberals should be taught that labels divide people, and I think that we can do with fewer labels, not more.

I could imagine someone meeting a dwarf and saying, “Oh, that’s a midget—wait, that might be offensive...dwarf? Little person? Short-statured? What should I call him?”—and the little guy looks over at the average sized person and says, “You can call me Jim.” :)

The PC crowd might also use the term 'Vertically-challanged.'

It seems the Left has put a happy face on some. For example bums are now homeless. Drug addicts have become substanc abusers, etc., etc.
