NAACP: Sterling Out Sharpton In

The NAACP was perfectly happy giving their 'Lifetime Achievement Award'  to Don Sterling - at least up to the point Sterling was recorded by his bimbo girlfriend.

Bimbo: Do you know that you have a whole team that's black, that plays for you?
Sterlin: I know? I support them and give them food, and clothes, and cars, and houses...Who makes the game? Do I make the game, or do they make the game? Is there 30 owners, that created the league? 

Then the NAACP fired the guy that ran their Los Angeles office, you know, because they blamed him for setting up the award.  Then promptly pivoted zero degrees and gave the award to, did you guess? Al Sharpton!

Sharpton punked Sterling during his goofy speech, and so did LA Mayor Al Garcetti sputtering, 'No matter who commits acts of racism--whether it’s a billionaire or somebody in our poorest neighborhoods--we have to speak out against it.'

Seems short memories prevail.  So to review recall Al's false race charges in the Tawana Brawley case, inciting anti-Jewish mobs in New York in the 1990s, and fanning racial outrage in the Trayvon Marin case.  True, Sharpton's not a billionaire, but he is a tax cheat.

Guess the NAACP still likes hypocrisy.  Surprise!
