Afro, I wish the Warriors would help them out and agree to boycott too.
I can't with Charles Barkley. I just heard him talking on Don Lemon on CNN. LZ Granderson makes some good points tho. Doc Rivers, advertisers and players weren't all in the dark about this racist nut but chose to play for him anyways.
I understand that they have families to feed but there also comes a time when you have to take a stand. Or eles it simply becomes a comfortable excuse. There are more players than team owners ...so it would be interesting if one thats predominantly AA took a stand.
2009, the Los Angeles chapter of the NAACP honored Donald Sterling with
a Lifetime Achievement Award. Soon after the announcement was made,
much of the world learned of Sterling's unrepentant racism thanks to Elgin Baylor's employment discrimination lawsuit.
owner Donald Sterling, accused of racism and embracing a "vision of a
Southern plantation-type structure" in a lawsuit filed in February by
Elgin Baylor, will be given a lifetime achievement award next week by
the NAACP. . . .
Jenkins, president of the Los Angeles branch of the civil rights
organization, says of the much-maligned Sterling, "He has a unique
history of giving to the children of L.A.," revealing that the owner
donates anywhere from 2,000 to 3,000 tickets a game to youth groups for
nearly every Clippers home game.
that the NAACP had made plans to honor Sterling before Baylor filed
suit, Jenkins says, "We can't speak to the allegations, but what we do
know is that for the most part [Sterling] has been very, very kind to
the minority youth community."
The NAACP's Los Angeles chapter has now twice combined an awful decision with even worse timing. On May 15, 2014, Donald Sterling is set to receive another Lifetime Achievement Award. Sterling also won the 2008 NAACP PRESIDENTS AWARD.
