    Billionaire racists will be billionaire racists. Not much we can do about that. But the fact that our so-
    called civil rights organizations depend on the deep pockets of Wal-Mart, Comcast, and the David
    Sterlings of this world even though they pretend to represent the interests of ordinary black people is
    not something we have to live with.

    “Depending on the rich and powerful to pay their bills while pretending to speak for
    the poor and oppressed is not a mere bug in the way our 21st century civil rights
    organizations work ”


    For us at Black Agenda Report, the most telling angle on the story of Donald Sterling,
    the racist billionaire owner of the LA Clippers, was that the Los Angeles NAACP , which
    had been about to give Sterling a second – not a first but a second “Lifetime
    Achievement Award” eagerly stepped forward to offer redemption and
    forgiveness
    for the small cost of a few more strategic donations from the deep
    pockets of Donald Sterling.

    Donald Sterling may imagine he owns basketball players. But he really does own the NAACP, just as
    surely as Verizon and Comcast, Aetna, Wal-Mart, MSNBC and others own the National Action
    Network, Rainbow-PUSH, the Urban League, the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation and the rest
    of our politically bankrupt black misleadership class.
