Donald Sterling -- Ironically Slated to Receive NAACP Award Next Month

Breaking News

7:45 PM PDT
 -- NAACP Interim President Lorraine Miller told NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday Morning Sterling will no longer receive a lifetime achievement award next month.

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. Watch TMZ Sports on FS1 Get the new TMZ Sports app!
