    NAACP Chapter That Honored Donald Sterling Is Led By Disgraced Ex-Judge Defrocked For Taking Bribes

    Surprising revelations about the civil rights group that helped the Clippers owner scrub his public image. How the Los Angeles NAACP spends its money remains a mystery. Tax records, which are supposed to be public, couldn’t be found.

    Jenkins has sought reinstatement to the California bar on two occasions, 2006 and 2012. But both times he was rejected. Most recently, in a decision handed down April 9, two judges of the State Bar of California found that “Jenkins still has not established the requisite rehabilitation and moral fitness to resume the practice of law.” They based that decision on evidence that Jenkins had repeatedly misrepresented his financial affairs, willfully failing to disclose an unpaid $25,000 loan from Spencer, understating his income, and concealing assets from his wife during divorce proceedings.

    Never trust an organization not created by you to serve you.

    ohh...
    not just yet, I am searching for one, and I will join it whole heartedly...

    I remember when my second father used to work as a janitor in NYC... he would contribute to the national urban league because he believed in that myth of more blacks in jail than in college, because they spread that mantra like gospel for decades...

    his heart was in a good place, him while being a functioning illiterate at the time taught me some of my principles to live... and because of that, I believed the mantra and completed school after the service...

    but that is when I also found out it was a blatant lie concocted to gain funds... by telling a lie to us, about us, and perpetuating stereotypes..


    grrrrrrrrr.....

    if you know of any, please let me know..
