According to Lemons, hes been talking about race related issues for the last 4 weeks (The N Word, Privilege, Profiling, Black Male masculinity ect) So according to him, after the Zimmerman trial, now was his opportunity to provide constructive criticism from his POV to the black community.

anyways... the initial post in the thread alluded to Lemons implying that those 5 talking points will end racism... and thats totally wrong...putting an unnecessary spin on this topic. (I had to watch the video just to clarify).. Because obviously that wouldn't make sense.

Anyways Lemons tried it though I guess...Hes not saying anything that anybody else hasn't said already... and he damn sure shouldn't have gave Oreily any credit at all... To make matters worse, he had Larry Elders on in that segment.. Just all kinds of terrible.

He probably should've just left it alone and Let MHP or JoAnne Reed handle it.

Right .... I think it was a poor attempt at him trying to provide the blk community with a sense of self esteem... I don't think his intentions were to get the approval of white people ..or "right wing conservatives"...

I think he should've left it alone though.

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.
a lot of these cases are true, but there is still the case of the safe negro vs the threatening negro.  If a guy is dressed like will smith or carlton banks, he's less likely to be stopped & frisked than a guy dressed like chief keef or wocka flocka
