In light of his ban from the NBA for blatant racism, Clippers owner Donald Sterling’s contributions to the Los Angeles branch of the NAACP are reportedly being refunded. However,  The People’s Cube notes that the NAACP is negotiating with Sterling for future donations to African American students at UCLA.

Carbon offsets made Al Gore rich. Just imagine what “racist offsets” can do for the NAACP.

  • Hey, That’s Pretty Good

    The NAACP is just fine with racism, as long as you pay them enough to shut up about it or if you are racist against Black Republicans.

    • QueenB

      Until you’re caught on tape at least.

      • Hey, That’s Pretty Good

        Yep. As Sterling learned.

        • Perso Nasplit

          or until it becomes politically preferential and they need cover for something. follow the money, and never trust politicians.

          Other than benghazi hearings and supreme court hearings, what else is being smuggled through the government?

            If the four men “Heroes” in Benghazi had been black you KNOW that this racist administration would have gone to hell and back to get these terrorists!

          • Perso Nasplit

            And if they were minorities, and the republicans were either in charge, or the ones in congress blocked a measure to reinforce the security, republicans would have had a war on women.

      I’d like to see the NAACP reduce their racist footprint….

      indeed: shirley shitrod (of pigford/breitbart fame) and her NAACP talk.

    • Jhn1

      Didn’t the Catholic Church get in disrepute over selling ‘iindulgences’?

      Then why was it OK for the NAACP to do so, until a goldigger released her blackmail and then the previously bought indulgence was revoked (but not refunded)

  • Ghee!

    If I watch Django Unchained, does that earn me any racial offsets? I would hope a lifetime exemption would be in order if I had to sit through that tripe!

    • MemorialDime

      Or 12 Years A Slave.

      • Ryan Schneider.

        That’s at least a true, well acted film, although it would have been far more relevant fifty or forty years ago.

    • Hey, That’s Pretty Good

      Speaking of Django Unchained, I read that Leonardo DiCaprio had a hard time filming because he was uncomfortable saying the n-word. Sam Jackson took him to the side and said, “This is a regular Tuesday for us.”

      I know Jackson was implying that he is called the n-word by racists on a daily basis, but in reality it’s a regular Tuesday for Jackson because he probably uses the word in every sentence.

      • mhojai

        I think Jackson was referring to rap “music.”

  • Stephen L. Hall #NonquamTrump

    Indulgences! Indulgences for sale! The Church of the NAACP will absolve you of all racial sins only if you purchase your indulgences!

    • Victoria Vallejo

      Is that Monty Python?

      • Stephen L. Hall #NonquamTrump

        No, but it does sound similar now that you mention it.

    • Ryan Schneider.

      I shudder to contemplate what their innane version of purgatory would be.

  • CHHR

    Isn’t the NAACP defining racism as a cottage industry?

    Time for all those “guilty white Americans” to take of those guilty white American (nooses) … I mean signs… don’t you think?

    • Donny Zunker

      Cottage industry?
      Do they pay at least $10.10, offer health insurance for a 40 hour work week?

      • CHHR

        No, but they have made a lot of money parroting the favorite lines of those who would pay for a narrative that never dies while legislation is penned & policy is developed… which, through their lobbying efforts, makes even more money never intended to help the actual poor they whine & dine over.

  • CO2 Producer

    The choice of green footprints is xenophobic.

  • j p✓ʳᵉᶠʳᶦᵉᵈ

    Just like the old time Catholic Church selling indulgences. I bet the price for a white man saying the “N” word in public is astronomical.

    • Spiny Norman

      Doubtless based on the “racial sinner’s” total wealth (not “net worth” – no cheating). 1% might be a good start, (see the symbolism?) – with a $1 million minimum.

      • j p✓ʳᵉᶠʳᶦᵉᵈ

        And if they don’t pay up they will set Doug and Dinsdale on them.

    • Ryan Schneider.

      You’re not the only one to think that. There is a lot of misunderstanding about that old controversy. An indulgence is supposed to be an eficient, time saving type of penance for sins, equivalent to, say, saying the psalms all seven times over while walking around the cathedral, but not so time consuming, so you would throw all your money to the poor at once, so you could get on with whatever secular duties your daily life might require. When the church began to treat tithes like a mandatory tax, that is when trouble started. Most of the money was supposed to finance a crusade to liberate Constantinople, not fill paple coffers, but I do feel that such a dishonest method of aquirment was displeasing to God.

      • j p✓ʳᵉᶠʳᶦᵉᵈ

        Was that a prepay plan? I thought I was told or read that people could pay on Friday for the sins they planned to commit on Saturday.

        • Ryan Schneider.

          Nonsense! Lutheran propaganda. The method of tithing was corrupt, but not the intent. You have to understand how worried the Vatican was about the Ottoman empire. The Reformation couldn’t have been more badly timed, it divided Europe just when it needed to stand United against the Islamic invaders. Europe would have become a giant Caliphate centuries ago, and the Papacy would be in permanent exile in Mexico, but for three successful fronts of resistance, all Catholic funded: the eastern polish plains, the Carpathian bottle neck, and the Horn of Lepanto. An invasion would have required braking through one of those fronts, and because of protestant disunity, had any failed, Europe could not have repelled them. The Carpathian mountains were most secure, and the King of Poland had built a formidable defense, but there was no blockade to speak of at Leponto, until almost literally the last hour. Had the Sultan’s fleet broken through, they would have invaded Italy, and invaded Europe via the alps. They only had one shot, as Elizabeth’s sizable fleet was more concerned with keeping Catholics out then helping then beat a greater threat. But Don Juan of Austria proved that, while a house divided cannot stand, it can still float! If the common man in Germany had understood the threat, they would have gladly given to help finance resistance, but that was the problem; for them, the Turkish threat might have been a fairy tail, one that couldn’t possibly affect them. That ignorance, in a way, was the true cause of the Reformation. Oh, true reform is always needed for the church, a white house needs regular maintenance or else it will eventually become a black house. But it’s rather stupid to continue painting your house when thieves are trying to burn it down. Sent from my HTC One™ S on T-Mobile. America’s First Nationwide 4G Network.

    Indulgences for sale…

  • WordsOfWisdom82

    Can I pre-pay? Let’s say I want to go on a racist rant on Saturday, could I donate to the NAACP on Tuesday and completely avoid all reprecussions and feelings of guilt?

    • jeanie6

      Depends largely on how much you’re willing to donate in relation to your rant. There’s a sliding scale.

      Yes but Spike Lee gets to wash your mouth with soap.

          Oooh that is probably at least a grand in offsets.

      • Maryland_Malcontent

        So that’s why The Tonight Show paid spike lee a million bucks to make that pathetic, sub-freshman-film-student-level intro video for the show: it was so Fallon could crack an obama joke without being called racist.

        I guess it would take a million dollars for liberals to excuse: “You know what’s black and white and really depressed? obama after checking his poll numbers!”

  • Right Wired ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    I’m eagerly awaiting Sexism Offsets to be offered by The Clinton Foundation

      Would that not have to be offered by NAG . . . I mean . . . NOW?

    • Ghee!

      oohh, you may be on to something there!

    • Frustrated Teacher

      Or lunacy offsets for Madam Pelosi and Shiela Jackson Lee?

  • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Is this anything like he old “swear jar” joke– you have to put a quarter in the jar every time you use profanity, so some fella finally gets really steamed, pulls out a twenty, sticks it in the jar: “F***, F***, F***…”

    Only THIS time, it’s racial?

    • WisconsinPatriot

      HOW OLD ARE YOU…….. a quarter????? Mine starts at a buck. Really elongated profanities will cost you either 5 or ten. You get to enjoy it at the summer picnic…….after all contributors are recognized by amount of contribution, in front of friends……family……co-workers……..babymamas, etc.

      • WisconsinPatriot

        OOOOOh, yeah. I forgot “a customer heard me”. That becomes a bit……….embarassing as well as expensive.

        • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

          When I heard the joke, back when the buffalo roamed the prairie, the idea that someone would plunge for twenty dollars just to cuss eighty times was considered to be a bit over-the-top, hence humorous. A bit like someone doing it with a C-note today, on a one-or-two-bucks-per-swear. You really gotta wanna swear, on that kinda deal.

          • Ogrrre

            “When the buffalo roamed the prairie”? You’re just a baby, aren’t you? Why, in my day, I had to be on the lookout for T. Rex as I walked 5 miles uphill both ways, in the snow, to go to school. Buffalo? Pfffft! Newby! 😀

    The offsets are also available from the DNC, democrat politician or left wing cause. When a offset is tried to be purchased from the RNC, republican politician or right wing cause it counts as a negative offset which make you more racist.

  • RSnyder

    “I promise not to make any racist comments that are being secretly recorded. PERIOD!” A buck gets you started! Take the pledge today! Who knew fighting racism could be this easy.

  • Arkuy The Great

    As stated in another thread, NAACP stands for “National Association for the Acceptance of Caucasoid Payoffs”!

  • Guest

    Why is Twitchy not covering the fact that the NAACP has said that the lifetime ban is not enough?

    • Leende

      White people be careful what you say unless you are in the presence of someone you would let hold a freshly honed knife to your jugular and not worry. Im sure you get the jist of what I mean. Was that racist, nah.

    • mndasher

      It seems the “lifetime achievement award” was canceled by the lifetime ban. So maybe they want a 2 lifetime ban to get back to 1 actual lifetime ban. /sarc

    Didn’t the Catholic Church used to have something similar.

    • Richard Jefferies

      Yes, it was what Martin Luther mainly complained about in regards to the anti-Biblical practices of Catholic Church. The selling of indulgences. Or the ex ante pardoning of sins. The practice has been compared to carbon credits for years, especially at the People’s Cube.

    Love the concept. What a way to decrease the deficit. We can offer indulgences for every crime, the price based on severity. OJ could have avoided all those trials and years of imprisonment. Von Bulow would never have been investigated. Broke losers, you’re going to jail.

  • http://www.algoreisabidfatidiot.com/ “Rev Jim Jones”

    A bit like freedom of speech insurance. You pay the monthly and should you get secretly recorded during the heat of the moment uttering something racist the insurance kicks-in.

    Underwriters would have to devise a rate structure so that low risk customers offset the cost of higher risk customers; such as Nevada ranchers, NBA coaches, klansmen, MSNBC talking heads and NAACP leaders.

    I was good friends with the guys who started The People’s Cube back during the 2004 election, when they were known as ‘Communists For Kerry’.

    Great bunch of people. One of them is a Russian immigrant whose family fled the Soviet Union and is so grateful to be in America that I can’t even properly put it into words. The funny thing is that he also looks EXACTLY like Vladimir Lenin, and used to do impeccable anti-communist agitprop in Union Square Park, fully in character as Lenin (along with a group of fellow travellers, dressed as Che and various other revolutionaries).

    It was always hilarious when he’d engage with the local snotnose NYU communists who were regular fixtures in the park also. Seeing someone who actually escaped the horrors of communism debating a 19 year old sociology freshman who is utterly convinced that he’s got it all figured out was a highlight of my life.
