Lemon conducted an interview with NBA star LeBron James and discussed the issue of race in America. Lemon became emotional and went on a racially charged tangent while he was discussing the interview with his political panel
“I know people that watch and they say ‘Why are you guys talking about race? You’re race baiting. It’s not that bad.’ It is that bad,” he said. “And stop saying that. Start examining yourself. Why don’t you want to talk about it? Maybe I should be more open to talk about it. Maybe I should learn more about my neighbors of color or people who are not like me.”
Perhaps, Mr. Lemon, you should stop obsessing over skin color? Why is it Don Lemon thinks neighbors who “don’t look like each other” do not talk? Maybe they do not sit and pretend racism is rampant. Maybe they just chat, cookout, or enjoy each other’s company? In short, does Lemon ever think people of all races, are pretty much over race?
“What is it that I don’t know? What is it that I’m not exposed to? What am I not learning rather than every single time saying there is no racism. It’s all behind us. Slavery was a long time ago. That’s all really bullshit, if you’re watching at home and you’re saying that,” he concluded. “Not even LeBron James is exempt from racism and bigotry. What does that say about the state of this country?”
Well, Don, racism is largely a thing of the past these days. Yep, you can find a few racists, of all races if you look hard enough. In a country of 320 million, you can find most anything if you look hard enough. And, to be honest if CNN wants to find racism, they could start with some of their leftist guests who play the race card every time they can. Or he could look at leftists and their level of hatred for anyone who does not walk the line If you would take your victim glasses off you might see that most of us are past that now. And, of all the people to hold up as a victim you pick Lebron James? Yep, that guy is richer than rich, the greatest basketball player on earth, and adored by millions. What a victim! I don’t see how he manages with all the oppression he faces.
