The interim president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, Lorraine Miller, says the organization has decided to no longer honor Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling.
"He is not receiving a lifetime achievement award from the NAACP," Miller said on NBC's "Meet the Press". Sterling, who has come under fire for allegedly telling his girlfriend not to bring black people to his games, was scheduled to receive an award from the Los Angeles NAACP chapter at an event in May.
Miller on Sunday denounced Sterling's comments and called for the Clippers owner to make a statement about the audio recording of his remarks. The NBA has the situation under review.
"If you're silent about this, then you're accepting this," she said. "People have got to say that this is not good and do something about it."
Sens. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) and Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) joined the chorus of boos toward Sterling on CBS' "Face the Nation" on Sunday.
"It's just outrageous in 2014 that comments like these are being made," Corker said.
