Ya I saw this on TV. I wasn't surprised when I saw it was Don Lemon since he has a history of cooning. 

I remember him saying black women are the source for the issues that black gay males face. He made it seem like only black women are capable of being homophobic.

Then when that idiot asian guy made that stupid research about black women being the most unattractive people, they were discussing it on CNN. While a white woman was saying how dumb that study was and how beautiful black women are, Don was saying how much he loved that scene from Color Purple where Whoopi's character was being called ugly and had the audacity to play it during the segment. smdh.

Wow!!Shocked  Self hate is a b*tch...to bad no matter how much white cock his devours...he will always be just a nig.ga to them...fukin coon...

Damn strong words.

I actually don't think Lemon is a coon. Just white washed. And yall this is CNN. He's not going to be allowed to get up there and say, "Arm yourselves, build your own communities, etc etc." It is a white run network. There's only so much he can do.

It is a white run network. It is a white run world in general so I'm sure that's why a lot of people prefer to remain mute and "fix" themselves to fit the mold. 

And another issue I have with this segment is that the audience that he is addressing is not watching CNN by any means. All he is doing is reinforcing negative stereotypes within the minds of the viewers and I'm sure a lot of whites, asians and even blacks were nodding their heads in agreement saying "Yup, that's right. Blacks do it to themselves." He is not helping at all. 

I'm sure white people at CNN were so thrilled when he said he was going to do this useless segment. 

This I agree with.

What he is saying making him a coon in many eyes of the posters here. He simply reiterated what many of the whites say about blacks. What the hell does pulling up pants have to do with being stopped and frisked by police? You do realize that that happens regardless of style of dress. The cops see melanin and you're getting stopped. They don't profile fairly. It's just a net to capture scary black males. It lets them not feel bad and reinforces their belief that there is no racism (except in the minds of lazy coloreds). Regardless of whether you agree with his policies, for many the Prez is this an ninja! They insult his intelligence and hurdle all manner of insults geared at his skintone.

I agree with whomever said these are all surface issues.  I would have taken him more seriously if he had talked at length about his ideas to re-build the black family which I believe is the root of all the issues.

I would say this is more of a how to better yourselves thus bettering your community list as opposed to something to fix racism.  Everything in the list has nothing to do with how other people treat black folks.  The only one that might could squeak through would be the "pull up your pants" in the sense that people treat you a certain way based on how u look.


I can't believe how he was crying n'sh*t on how he used to have to check in with mom's on the way home just to turn around and say this.   Why was he callin' Ma dukes if white folks ain't the prollem?
