1. The award is apparently to recognize a lifetime of very generous donations to benefit disadvantaged blacks and other racial minorities.
2. Sterling has been under investigation by the feds for accusations of racial discrimination in housing, etc. as well as being sued by Elgin Baylor for racial discrimination in employment.
3. The girlfriend is apparently being sued by the ex-wife for stealing upwards of $2 million from the family's funds.
No one can condone the man's words on their face - they are outrageous - but I'm also concerned about the apparent hit job being conducted, using TMZ, and the rush to have the man tarred and feathered in the village square.
I'm not entirely sure the NAACP will withdraw the award under those circumstances.
