NAACP Will No Longer Give Clippers Owner Lifetime Achievement Award


Interim president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, Lorriane Miller, on Sunday said that the organization has decided to no longer honor Clippers owner Donald Sterling.

“He is not receiving a lifetime achievement award from the NAACP,” Miller said on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” according to Politico.

Sterling, who has come under fire for allegedly telling his girlfriend not to bring black people to his games, was scheduled to receive an award from the Los Angeles NAACP chapter at an event in May.

Miller on Sunday denounced Sterling’s racist comments and called for the Clippers owner to make a statement about the audio recording of his remarks.

“If you’re silent about this, then you’re accepting this,” she said. ”People have got to say that this is not good and do something about it.”
