Los Angeles – The spokesperson for the Los Angeles chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People says they will still honor Donald Sterling on May 15th with the Lifetime Achievement Award because they can’t believe the man is still an NBA owner. “I can’t believe he is still in the owner’s box,” said Leon Jenkins, president of the Los Angeles branch of the civil rights organization, adding that this man gives a few dollars here and there, donates tickets to some black kids, and then while he sits up in the owner’s box he talks about black people like he’s having Sunday dinner with men in sheets. “The Los Angeles chapter of the NAACP has been following Mr. Sterling for over twenty years and every time we see a case of him being racist we hold hands expecting the NBA to suspend him, yet it never happens.” The NBA which is currently investigating Sterling says they will go through their due diligence before handing down any punishment if any are warranted. “They can do whatever investigation they want, but with all the crap Silvers has thrown on the black folks of Los Angeles, he deserves the award for lasting this long,” said Jenkins.
