NY Post's George: NAACP Took the Cash, Ignored Sterling's Record

Friday, 02 May 2014 03:49 PM

The NAACP clammed up about Donald Sterling's racism in exchange for donations from the Los Angeles Clippers owner, according to New York Post editorial columnist Robert A. George.

Sterling, banned for life by the NBA for telling his girlfriend not to bring black people to Clippers games, won a lifetime achievement award from the NAACP and was due a second one, despite being sued for allegedly discriminating against blacks in housing complexes he owns.

"They kept quiet in the face of legitimate criticisms of the way Sterling was running these buildings. Why? Because he paid them off here, he paid them off there," George told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"And here's an interesting point, the $2.5 million that the NBA is going to fine Donald Sterling, they said that money is going to be given to various anti-discrimination organizations. Does that include the NAACP?"

Story continues below video.



On Thursday, Leon Jenkins resigned as head of the Los Angeles chapter of the NAACP after the group was slammed for the planned Sterling award. The group rescinded its offer after Sterling's racist remarks surfaced.

George said one problem with the modern civil rights movement is that it has become a "transactional organization or a transactional series of organizations."
