LA NAACP to Return Money Donated by Sterling

[ SOURCE ] The president of the Los Angeles NAACP confirmed during a news conference Monday that Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling will no longer receive a lifetime achievement award next month and that money donated by the embattled owner will be returned.

The news conference came a day after the organization's interim president told NBC's "Meet the Press" that Sterling would not be honored at an awards gala in Los Angeles next month. Sterling was set to be awarded a lifetime achievement award by the Los Angeles chapter of the NAACP on May 15.

The NAACP also called for a previous award given to the 80-year-old Sterling, who has owned the team since 1981, to be rescinded.
