 -- 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.

The black men who F@cked his girlfriend should compete for a "Who Hit It Best" award.

There is nothing more painful to me at this stage in my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps... then turn around and see somebody white and feel relieved. Jesse Jackson

You didn't get the gold from that old fool and you got mad and had an idea in your little whore brain. I am going to trick this this old fool to say something racist and record him. The only fool I see is you. Good luck trying to gold dig again. You going to have to gold dig at the ages 30 and down. Too much competition for your alien looking face? Ya, he doesn't like blacks, so what? He didn't make a public statement, his snitch GF recorded a private conversation and released it to the public. Now he should be "punished" for his opinion? That's a pretty un-American way to think. Dump that broad and find one that know how to keep her mouth shut about private conversations. He had it coming for associating HIMSELF with a filthy subhuman gold digging bitch. Have you seen her instagram photo with all the watches and cars she got from old fools like him? Look like you got hung from her temple lookin ass bitch. Look like predator from Aliens , with all the gold digging kills in the pictures, looking ass bitch.

Of course he donates to youth charities. How else is going to ensure the future black athletes can continue to have bright athletic futures so he can continue to profit in the end. Beside even a slave owner knew the value of keeping his property (slaves) in good working condition

Here we go. This guy will be squashed like a bug because everyone will assume he violated some civil rights somewhere, sometime. I doubt that happened in the world of HR, Risk Management, etc. He probably bent over backwards to avoid it. Now he's got to bend over forwards, because he's now going to take it up the ass.

The real irony is the NAACP is honoring the biggest racist on the planet Al Sharpton but un-inviting the Clippers owner.
