What Should NAACP’s Punishment Be for Honoring Sterling?

A racist organization honoring a racist. The irony here is perfect.
Check it out:

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), an organization founded in 1909 to fight racists, now provides indulgences to them.

Disgraced Clippers owner Donald Sterling’s lifetime achievement award, revoked by the Los Angeles branch of the NAACP in the aftermath of his racist remarks, buttresses suspicions that collecting donations, not advancing the interests of people of color, serves as the group’s raison d’etre.

It could be worse. Jim Jones, the year prior to killing more black people in a day than the Ku Klux Klan have in the last century, received a Martin Luther King Humanitarian Award from the Reverend Cecil Williams’ Glide Memorial United Methodist Church in San Francisco. At least the Los Angeles NAACP had the decency to honor a man who merely aired nasty thoughts rather than acted upon insane ones.

Racism remains a recalcitrant sin for an age that dismisses the whole notion of sin.
