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.
