Leon Jenkins LA NAACP

For years Donald Sterling has been using his blood money to buy off the LA NAACP. So unfortunately, although disgusting and saddening, it’s no surprise the president of the Los Angeles chapter, Leon Jenkins, spoke in defense of the Clippers owner and even went as far as to say his words don’t reflect his heart.

“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.

After saying that he would return the money received from Sterling’s foundation, Jenkins is now saying that he’s working on getting more money from him.

“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.

What a horrible example this chapter and its president is setting.  He needs to step down as well, because his support of Sterling shows he’s clearly NOT for the advancement of colored people.

  2. Ez says:

    NAACP is owned by Jews with a black face on it, black people have never elected the NAACP as the voice of the black community. Black people are not defending this bigot racist Donald Sterling.

    • Bill S says:

      Sounds like Donald Sterling has bought all these Negroes in the NAACP LA chapter. Leon Jenkins is saying “well we forgive mas-sa let’s see if we’s can get some mo money from Ma-sa Sterling. You LA NAACP members let money rule you and Jenkins is nothing but a big “SELL OUT” Sterling owns his black azz lock stock and barrel.

      • Emma Ary says:

        I agree with Bill and Jenkins should not be the president of nothing he is ignorant, stupid and he has the love of money in his mind and heart all of the members of the NAACP in La needs to step down because they know what mr. Sterling was about all they wanted was the money.

    • Nicole says:

      The national NAACP does the same stuff. The NAACP gets funds because oppression exists, it benefits them to keep oppressed people and systems in place to limit the ability of blacks to escape oppression.

  3. nba is fixed says:

    Leon Jenkins is a disgrace to black people all over the world! How could the national NAACP chapter not have noticed this? Who is in charge of monitoring the local chapters? Where is Julian Bond? Where is Kweisi Mfume? Why haven’t we heard from them?

  4. horace henry says:

    So true. Get rid of him now!

  5. S.James Higgins says:

    It’s sad that we as black people will sell out for a dollar. Sir you are worst than Donald Sterling, at least we know what he stands for. You would Blacks on a highway to hell if the price is right.

    • Emma says:

      Leon Jenkins and rest of the members of the NAACP in La need to step down they made money more important than people.

  6. MAD says:

    THESE NAACP NEGROS ARE AS DUMB AS THE COME !JEWS STRTED THE NAACP TO COUNTER MARCUS GARVEY’S MOVEMENT.SICKOS!

  7. Ruben Rmz says:

    Black,Hispanic, Anglo. Etc. Sterling as an elder should be forgiven. By the way people have posted I can conclude none of you believe in GOD. Because if you do trust me, GOD won’t believe in you.

    • AFCP says:

      @Ruben what does God have to do with this idiot? No more forgiving he needs to be punished.

    • Wyndell says:

      Ruben, I too believe in God and Christ as my savior. But, forgiveness does not mean forgetting. And, it does not mean being foolish. I haven’t read where anyone wishes this man ill. They are just exercising their right not to be associated with ignorance and bigotry any longer.

    • Forgiveness says:

      I would want someone to forgive me, why can’t we forgive him?

    • J. Kelley says:

      You are right Ruben… The last place I would want to be is around these folk…. Church goers and that’s all…

  8. Moe says:

    “COLORED PEOPLE”,…………really!

  9. Shango says:

    Foot shuffling, Uncle Tom, slide stepping, head scratching negro

  10. LEa says:

    I’ve yet to hear Sterling ask for forgiveness. Yes, it is Christ like to forgive him and pray for him in your hearts, not to slap our own people in the face and degrade them to honor a racist man. The word speaks of this responsibility as well… I’m growing disappointed at the NAACP, as a Christian and Mexican who looks up to the African American community for advancements historically made what is going on here? It looks like lot’s of truths been revealed.

  11. dacard says:

    If Leon Jenkins really cares about the betterment of society, he’ll resign.

  12. marrz says:

  13. 2Cents says:

    HOUSE NIGGAS, I tell you!

  14. Rockhard says:

    Headline should have started, “Uncle Tom Leon Jenkins defends”

  15. Monique says:

    Sad what you can buy for a few dollars….

  16. The Squire says:

    Sadly this organization is led by a lawyer and disbarred judge run out of Detroit, years ago. It is clear he has found his gold mine in sucking blood money form sterling. It’s the old truism, follow the money right to Jenkins’s pocket. Why hasn’t anyone checked his background….corruption likes corruption and they feed on it together

  17. wandaarmstrong says:

    He needs too go asap!!!!!

  18. les pines says:

    i am outraged by the not one but 2 different people commenting about the jews in this article oh yes i am jew and proud of it , sterling demise is evident and i agree of nba banning him permanently. racist remarks in his tape is evident and certainly no room for bigotry remarks . AS FAR AS NAACP AND IT MEMBERS MONOTORING STERLING OVER THE YEARS ALONG WITH FOLKS CONTRIBUTING TO DIFFERENT CAUSES SHOULD BE LOOKED INTO WITHOUT QUESTION. JENKINS SPOKE HIS PEACE OF FORGIVENESS MAN IS ENTITLED TO HIS OPINION CALLED FREEDOM OF SPEECH WE HAVE IN AMERICA , OH BYE THE WAY I AM CONSIDER MY SELF MINORITY MY SON IS BLACK I LOVE HIM AND PROUD OF IT. I WILL WORK HARD TO MAKE SURE HE STRIVES AND WORKS TWICE AS HARD TO ACCOMPLISH HIS GOALS IN BECAUSE I CARE. ON ANOTHER NOTE I AM A BALLPLAYER LOVE NBA MAJIC JOHNSON OVER YEARS WHAT HE HAS DONE AFTER NBA AND FOR VARIOUS BLACK COMMUNITIES. HOWEVER I THINK BUYING TH LA CLIPPERS I/M NOT SURE ABOUT JUST A GUT FEELING ON THIS MATTER. I HAVE TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF RESPECT FOR HIM OVERCOMING HIS ILLNESS , IM SURE HE CAN FIND OTHER LUCRATIVE INVESTMENT WITHIN THE BLACK CULTURES TO ASSERT JOBS AND SO ON.

  19. Beyond Life says:

    This dude is a Christian so, what do U expect of him? A descendant of African Heritage who follows a religion or dogma of,the Caucasians…

  20. MLT says:

    There was a time in our history when Blacks captured Blacks and Africa and sold them into slavery for Money. Now this NAACP president is willing to accept money from a racist pig just to make receive money. Please remove this Black stabber out of a once proud organization, that now will accept racism for a price. Slavery and bigotry from our own kind.

    • Jack Mehoff says:

      Those blacks that captured blacks were NOT their own tribe. I love when people bring that stuff up because it shows how ignorant you are. The people that they traded were their enemies. Doesn’t matter what the color of their skin was. An enemy is an enemy just like Leon Jenkins.

  21. Chasity says:

    HOW CAN I START OR SIGN A PETITION GETTING Leon Jenkins out of office.Bump that America.Lets start cleaning out glass houses.Fire them all

  22. Chance says:

    Yes! How dare he speak of forgiveness and try to get some money for black students at UCLA. What a terrible man.

  23. Lester Dixon says:

    This is why we can’t get ahead because of house n*gg**s sell-outs and race traitors who run back to Massa . Who elected this clown as president of NAACP?

  24. Okeyo Jumal says:

    Donald Sterling, NAACP. Yes the NAACP (L.A. Branch) does have a problem, the current L.A. NAACP is not even a shadow, not a flicker of its deep roots! Back-in-the-day, local NAACP branches fought to desegregate the L.A. Fire and Police Dept., the public swimming pools in Pasadena, etc…(yes, segregation was not limited to the South.) And for their efforts, they received strong and wide ranging support in the community.
    But these NAACP Negro’s today have turned the local organization into a joke! These pimps, yes pimps are selling the NAACP IMAGE AWARD like a street corner Ho to whoever “gots” the money. In 2009, Donald Sterling had the money and the L.A. Branch tripped over themselves giving him an Image Award!! He got the Award although at the time he was being sued by Elgin Baylor (Clipper GM) for racial discrimination. In 2010 Sterling was hit with the highest settlement ever for housing discrimination for forcing Blacks and Mexicans to move from is apartment buildings.
    Sterling was in need of a PR make-over, a spin doctor; so who you gonna call, that’s right, the L.A. NAACP!! He hands them some chump change, and he gets another Image Award??! But a funny thing happened on the way to next months Awards ceremony, Sterling’s racist rant hit the media! The L.A. NAACP has some ‘explainin’ to do! A short memo retracting the award would have sufficed, but no, these clueless coons, mugging for the cameras, crowded around the mics and read some befuddled diatribe.
    To paraphrase a line from, “A Raisin in the Sun”, “Can we fall any lower, please let this be the bottom”.
    I still believe the NAACP is a very relevant organization, but the national organization needs to do some serious house cleaning, starting with dis-banding the the L.A. branch and other branches with the same mind-set and building anew!!

  25. Michael says:

    Donald Sterling, an elderly patient with Alzheimers dementia, was entrapped by a youthful scorned mistress with an advanced degree in gold digging who illegally recorded him, and once the money ran out, sold the recording to TMZ to be broadcast all over the world. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YhT6d5fMhzI&feature=player_embedded

  26. There is something called Blind Forgiveness. I don’t accept
    What Sterling said isnot ok. Slavery was bad back then & modern day Slavery is worse. 4/30/2014

    This is how some of our ancestors responded when it was time for us to Depart for Freedom. When the Slave Master asked them what should I do & How much should I give you all. They said nothing that’s ok.

  27. steve says:

    I mean, people, let’s take this as far as we can.

    This is a sell out. The NAACP is supposed to represent the people. It is not supposed to represent Donald Sterling.

  28. DJ says:

    My question is, who taped this conversation? Who sent it out? Just during playoffs… and what he said is no different than what some black people say about whites and jews.. someone is trying to pull some shit…Everytime something happens between a white person and a black person, you have idiots always crying racism….

  29. Kimberly Roulin says:

    DISGUSTING representation for US. A con and self-serving piece of money hungry fecal matter. Christian or not you have to pay for your sins. Literally he IS in bed with a KNOWN enemy.

  30. mwe says:

    Reminds me of Malcolm X’s speech about the House Negro, tbh…

  31. mwe says:

    The house Negro usually lived close to his master. He dressed like his master. He wore his master’s second-hand clothes. He ate food that his master left on the table. And he lived in his master’s house–probably in the basement or the attic–but he still lived in the master’s house.

    So whenever that house Negro identified himself, he always identified himself in the same sense that his master identified himself. When his master said, “We have good food,” the house Negro would say, “Yes, we have plenty of good food.” “We” have plenty of good food. When the master said that “we have a fine home here,” the house Negro said, “Yes, we have a fine home here.” When the master would be sick, the house Negro identified himself so much with his master he’d say, “What’s the matter boss, we sick?” His master’s pain was his pain. And it hurt him more for his master to be sick than for him to be sick himself. When the house started burning down, that type of Negro would fight harder to put the master’s house out than the master himself would.
