This man had to have done something very seriously wrong aside from this matter to have been banned for life. Let alone any length of time.

I'm so sick of hearing about this sterling crap. What he said was dumb and irrational but people are jumping at the chance to become a victim as if they will gain power from it when choosing to be a victim is actually giving up power. People need to leave it alone. He's an old man, not gonna change his views. This is his issue. Let him be miserable.

My question is: will the tax-exempt NAACP reimburse us all for expenses of giving two awards to Sterling?

My answer is likely now. The payout from the shakedown should be a good return on investment here

Same here. What he said was not politically correct but said in private in an argument with his partner. And it's his right to say what ever especially in private. This is the thought police in action. If Sterling actually discriminated against any Clippers or NBA employee it's a different story. But this is nothing but a case of the pc thought police imposing there will on others. This faux and/or misplaced righteous indignation is getting tiresome. Then you have networks and commentators milking this like the missing airliner story. They're keeping their choir liquored up so to speak.
