05/14/14 – Rev. Al Sharpton is traveling to LA to receive the ‘Man of the Year’ award from the Los Angeles chapter of the NAACP, the same chapter that once gave Donald Sterling his first lifetime achievement award and was set to give him another honor this year.
“It is very important that we don’t let the actions that are being questioned of one individual in the chapter stop us from dealing with 103 years of service that this organization has done,” Sharpton said.
Should Rev. Al accept the award? He explains why it’s not a good time to neglect the chapter in this time.
