    It happened to Imus, Paula Deen, Limpbaugh, and probably some others which I can't recall entirely.

    No, but they give them to people who donate large sums of money for PR purposes.

    Yes, I'm sure all the people who embrace the free market will find a way to be hypocrites and continue whining.

    A thing that's interesting about this guy is it's a very old plantation style racism.

    He has a mixed mistress. The guy has tons of "black friends" through the league and the NBA. Ultimately though he sees them as second class citizens. Even his language about them is very patronizing. He gives his players "cars, houses..." etc while in reality he makes millions off of his players abilities.

    Regarding the 2009 Lifetime Achievement Award the NAACP gave him (yes, this would have been his second from them):

    “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.

    Noting 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.”



    NAACP explains why it is honoring Clippers owner Donald Sterling - Los Angeles Times

    So they give out awards that are bought by 2000-3000 basketball tickets.

    Sounds like he uses people for personal gain. The part I can't get over is that he is married, and has a girlfriend. When my spouse and I first heard about this, we both had WTF moments. I wondered how he was able to work a girlfriend into his life, being he's such a busy wealthy man and all that.
