    ….Our NAACP chapter in L.A. is not blameless. Because of Sterling's large donations to local charities, including the NAACP, they overlooked his worse than checkered history on race issues and gave him a lifetime achievement award in 2009 — and were about to honor him with a humanitarian award before his racist recording surfaced.

    The National NAACP and all of our affiliates must be more discerning in our awarding of honors, which should be for true achievements in advancing racial equality. We are developing guidelines for our units to help them in their award selection process. We must not be seduced by mere financial support.

    While the NAACP is grateful for corporate and philanthropic donations in addition to membership dues, we have always reserved the right to criticize the actions of our donors when we disagree with them — and to dissociate ourselves from them totally when they express the kind of egregious racism that Donald Sterling has.

    Up 'til the posting of the recordings by the gold-digging mistress, they paid no attention to anything Sterling did except count the zeroes on the checks he sent. :rolleyes:

    Maybe they should give back the donations.

    Oh, those should be kept in the NAACP's offers to fight the kind of racism the man was trying to appear to reject while secretly holding to those same views!

    Yep, they should if they haven't spent it. Ain't much reason to tell someone they need to give back money that's been spent.

    You would think that the NAACP would have a fund drive to repay Sterling.

    In the middle of the nineteenth century the British public criticized Evangelist William Booth for allowing prostitutes to donate in his Christian meetings. They said that it was tainted money. Booth replied that the trouble with tainted money is that t'ain't enough of it.
