 -- NAACP Interim President Lorraine Miller told NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday Morning Sterling will no longer receive a lifetime achievement award next month.
update_grey_gray_bar
It's stunning to say the least ... Donald Sterling has been tapped by the L.A. chapter of the NAACP for a Lifetime Achievement Award ... at a gala event next month.

Leon Jenkins, Prez of the L.A. branch, has said in the past, "He [Donald] has a unique history of giving to the children of L.A."  Sterling donates thousands of Clippers tickets to local youth groups.

There have been several earlier allegations Sterling was a racist.  Several years back, Jenkins was quoted as saying, "We can't speak to the allegations, but what we do know is that for the most part [Sterling] has been very, very kind to the minority youth community."

It's unclear if Sterling will receive the award at the May 15 ceremony.

Donald T Sterling is a very kind and generous man who got bamboozled after buttons being continually push. What a big mistake by laying with that chick. Big mistake. I'm sure we haven't heard the last of this, but he's been through worse. He's genuinely a good man. #truth

If he gets this award, NAACP can kiss all those donations goodbye and pretty sure NO black out minority, including myself, would ever support them again

National Association for The Advancement of Colored People? FRAUD ORGANIZATION.

How much have they done for Red, Brown, and Yellow Peoples? Not a thing.

Suffice it to say, he wasn't going to be there to receive the award as he doesn't want to be associated with black people in "public." Now, I wouldn't be surprised if he shows up to receive the award with a MLK t-shirt and X hat.

He has given millions to the black community. The blacks should refuse to cash their paycheck as a form of protest
