Don Lemon... Is it your journalistic mission to point out as frequently as possible

what's wrong with the black community?.. Every time this guy is on CNN he seems to me he is touting right wing talking points concerning the breakdown of black lower middle class communities..

O.k. we get it mr. Handsome Afro-American T.V. star.. But how about solutions which do not consistently use the the words “Responsibility and Role Models” Maybe how the right wing is trying to destroy inner city poor educational
institutions and programs... You make me sick..

9. It’s not anger..Just pointing out the subtle innuendoes of racists talk.. Code.

Like when Ron Reagan’s “Welfare Queen” remark which was the start of republican safety net slashing.
You think “Welfare Queen referred to a White Woman?

3. Who has more of a right to criticize absent African American fathers than a successful black man?

5. I noticed you didn't say he was wrong.

 

Bill Cosby talked about parental responsibility a few months ago....

You have a problem with him too !

8. Yea I do..

The inner schools have been decimated with recent financial cuts that have destroyed most of the after school programs which were safe areas for kids at risks.. You see most parents living in these areas are working probably 2 jobs and can’t be home for their children after school leaving them in harm’s way..

Never heard Bill talk about this... Have you?

14. I like Lemon & Cosby -- but

I think that you make a critical point.

Morality (or the lack thereof) isn't the problem.

I get what you are saying.

It's a blame the victim mentality, to a certain extent.
