    @N0rthman

    True, but Al Sharpton is definitely racist against whites but that gets a pass in the Liberal media and their La La Land reasoning...just my take.

    @NOrthman white people always try to deflect responsibility for the messed up mentality but pointing fingers at others.

    @MBernard Yeah.. in no way, shape , or form was the statement you just made racist. Keep stacking up the money in your piggy bank so maybe one day you can afford to buy a clue.

    @The_JillyBeans says:
    ║In fact that is wrong. They are returning it.

    Please, re-read my single sentence again. For you convenience, I re-post, below:
    ║But the NAACP is going to keep Sterling's donations, right?

    In the written form of the English language, that punctuation mark (?) at the end makes my sentence what's is called an "interrogative statement," or more commonly termed "a question."

    A question isn't a statement of "fact," and can be neither "right" or "wrong."

    But, nice try!

    There's something on there. Are you old enough to remember Jesse Jackson and his "Hymietown" comment?

    @EyesWideShut So you have no problem with the term 'Hymietown' but you have a problem with what this guy said? Hypocrisy. Either you are against hatred or you are not. It doesn't only matter when it is pointed in your direction, believe it or not.

    I think it matters if he knew his remarks were being recorded. Many people say very ugly things in private that do not reflect how they live only how they feel. The standard should be what he lives not what he thinks.

    That is a good point even though most will probably disagree with it. It's easy to fight for something you believe in. It's easy to speak with that in which you agree. It is much more difficult to do or support things that you don't personality believe, but still feel must be done for whatever reasons.

    @Firestorm I had a discussion with members of my family who are extremely knowledgeable about sports and him. He lives as he spoke. He deserves the worst the world can throw at him. He has truly earned it.

    I actually agree with you on this.

    Does a person have the right to have negative/unpopular views in PRIVATE???

    I'm also wondering who RECORDED and RELEASED this vid??????????

    I must add that sterling has a history of this type of behavior in the past.

    So now I do question the NBAs judgment in allowing a guy like sterling to own a team in a league that is at least 80% black male dominated.

    What about the previous two awards the NAACP gave Sterling? He didn't become a racist overnight and he has given millions of dollars to black causes. Maybe he didn't give enough this year. Or is it just because all the publicity the liberal media is giving him now?

    Sterling also gave significantly to Jewish causes and organizations. In the recordings he admitted that there was significant racism by the white Jews against black Jews. So even in their own "tribe" they are not nice to each other. I would bet that Sterling also gave to Hispanic groups as he has been discriminatory toward them as well.

    My guess is that Sterling gave to the NAACP to improve his image after the multitude of scandals and lawsuits regarding racial discrimination in rental issues. It's not any different than Mel Gibson and his Tour of Semitic Remorse ever time he goes on an anti-Semitic tear. Lets face it we know that Mel Gibson at the end of the day still hates Jews. Just as Donald Sterling at the end of the day still hates blacks.

    The reality is that until it's impossible people will let money salve all wounds. Now of course it will take a whole lot more money to fix this social pickle Sterling has got himself into.

    The non-liberal media was eating it up just as much when they were sure he was a liberal. And like the Cliven Bundy case, when it became unfavorable, they clammed up.

    I would oe to her his response to his statement. Was it a remark made out of anger for something his girl friend had said? If not out of anger then it was a totally stupid racist remark. I hope the day comes when people are as outraged when TV programming or Hollywood movies make bigoted hateful statements against Bible believing Christians. The double standard & hypocrisy from the Left is sickening.

    I guess he was too white, I mean the NAACP giving a big award to a white guy? Child please! I guess Charlie Rangal is a shoe in now.

    Lots of whites have been nominated for the NAACP award even though it was started as a way to "honor people of color unable to earn the attention and acclaim of white counterparts."

    @WMCOL I was just trying to be funny. I know whites have been nominated. I got the "child please remark from wide receiver TO. Damn funny comment-child please.

    @WMCOL Yeah.. Fred Phelps was given an award by the NAACP. Because they only care when hatred is directed at them, not when it goes in any other direction, including FROM THEM.

    They have a right to do anything they want to with any award or honor they've bestowed, but it would have been OK to wait until the recording is verified as authentic and not edited or otherwise altered into what sounded like a racist request. We've recently seen what video/audio editors can do with Brian Williams and the 'Gin & Juice' rap song on Jimmy Fallon's 'Tonight Show'. If it turns out to be a similar 'punking' it could be very embarrassing for the NAACP. For the record, don't know Mr. Sterling, not a sports watcher, and I'm not defending him or what he supposedly said. Since the young woman in question has an 'axe to grind' with Sterling, it's not unreasonable to want to wait until all the facts are in. She doesn't exactly come with 'clean hands' into the picture due to her personal battles with Sterling.

    Giving people two lifetime achievement awards diminishes the point of giving one at all. It just becomes a clear money making scheme, not an actual honor. More like a payoff.

    Donald Sterling clearly is a morally unbearable human being, his wife no better for standing by him for fifty years. No wonder his family is a mess. Such negative "energy" surrounds this money laden disaster. And what kind of man runs around with a tart and disrespects their marital partner in such a manner?

    The NAACP supports racist black people so why not support racist whites? The other issue here is that Sterling has every right in the world to be a racist and to say whatever he wants. I hear the same thing every day from black people so I have to consider this a non-issue.

    How many of those racist black people are in charge of billion dollar companies? How many of them are in positions of power? How many of them practice housing discrimination?

    He should get suspended for life by the NBA in the next few days. And a well deserved suspension it will be!

    Actually it is surprising, if he had this long history of racist remarks why were they planning on giving him an award?
