We just reported that Clippers’ racist owner Donald Sterling has been paying off the NAACP for years. Now amidst the bad publicity, CBS is reporting the president of the Los Angeles chapter announced in a press conference that they will be returning all donations received from Sterling’s foundation.
Leon Jenkins, president of the LA NAACP, said at a news conference Monday that donations made by Sterling will be returned. He wouldn’t say how much money was involved but called it an “insignificant amount.”
Interesting gesture by the NAACP…NOW. Of anyone, the local chapter should’ve been aware of Sterling’s discriminatory housing practices and refrained from being bought off when they should’ve been fighting for the rights of those he mistreated.
