LA NAACP Pres Says Sterling’s Words Don’t Reflect His Heart

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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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….

  • 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.
