Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling’s alleged racist outburst once again exposes the hypocrisy of the NAACP. The organization professes to advance blacks but in reality it’s nothing more than a liberal front group.
According to Hollywood gossip site TMZ.com, Sterling engaged in a racist rant that was caught on audio during an argument with his now former girlfriend.
If confirmed, this would not be the first race-based incident for Sterling. Sterling has been sued twice by the federal government for refusing to rent apartments to Blacks and Latinos but despite Sterling’s history of racist behavior, he was set to receive the NAACP Lifetime Achievement Award next month.
The New York Times reported, “In 2009, Mr. Sterling paid $2.725 million to settle a housing discrimination suit brought by the Justice Department, which accused him of systematically driving African-Americans, Latinos and families with children out of the apartment buildings he owned. In the settlement, Mr. Sterling did not admit wrongdoing.”
