Russell Simmons: Don Lemon's a 'Slave,' 'Dangerous Talking Head,' 'Disservice to Black Community'

Famous black liberals continued their attacks on CNN's Don Lemon Tuesday.

Hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons weighed in on Twitter a few hours ago calling Lemon a "slave," "dangerous talking head," and a "disservice to the black community":

The nucleus of almost all revolution lies in youth culture. If I was young my pants would be saggin.. #donsalemon.. — Russell Simmons (@UncleRUSH) July 30, 2013

Don Lemon conservatives love when we blame ourselves for the condition of the community. You do disservice to black community — Russell Simmons (@UncleRUSH) July 30, 2013

Hip hop language and clothes are expressions of frustration w/the status quo, your a dangerous talking head just read the news — Russell Simmons (@UncleRUSH) July 30, 2013

Saggy pants are no different from afros or darshikis or platform shoes they didn't destroy the fabric of the black community — Russell Simmons (@UncleRUSH) July 30, 2013

40 yrs of locking up diseased people educating them in criminal behavior and putting them back in hood w/ out chance of employment did — Russell Simmons (@UncleRUSH) July 30, 2013

# 1 enemy of black America has been the war on drugs #newjimcrow — Russell Simmons (@UncleRUSH) July 30, 2013

As NewsBusters reported, Lemon's been savaged by African-American MSNBC employees such as Al Sharpton, Goldie Taylor, and Michael Eric Dyson.

On Monday, a black activist and author called Lemon a professional assassin of African-Americans.

All this for telling his fellow blacks that they should pull up their pants, learn how to speak proper English, get a good education, not litter their neighborhoods, and stop having out of wedlock births.

It really is a warped nation we live in, isn't it?

Yes, God forbid you should blame yourselves - or take any responsibility whatsoever - for the condition of YOUR cities and YOUR homes and YOUR kids killing each other. That’s what we white folks are for - to blame, doncha’ know?

These hip hop nasty lyric people are sensing that their gravy train might be coming to an end. Too bad they focused so much on poor little Trayvon because it turned the focus right back on them. Blacks killing blacks and the vile things these rappers sing that make them role models to young thug wannabes. BO and the Mooch love to have them to the WH too. Gangsta culture. The Mooch hasn’t forgotten her South Side upbringing.

Does he have any comments on other distinguished members of the Black Community? Like OJ, Al (Tawanny Browly) Sharpton, Robert (genocide) Mugabe?

There would be fewer dead Blacks if they listen to Don Lemon, instead of Russell Simmons.

Lemon is telling it like it is. Heck we can’t even get the Fox News so called “conservatives” to get real with the Black community

Want to see the slave, Russell? Look in the mirror. The irony is you cling to your own chains. And you Democrat masters laugh at you for it. Fool.

Why does it matter what a RAP Mogul thinks? In relation to his wealth and lifestyle he has done nothing to help his “community” out of it’s cycle of poverty. Instead he, and his music culture, promote victimhood. Hey Russell, you moron, tell me how RAP has helped the black community except for the few moguls like yourself? Shut up. Sell all you have and give it to Sharpton and Jackson. They have solutions right? Otherwise, STFU and continue to avoid dating black women like you always do.

Yep. Old Holder wanted this conversation, now he’s got it and people are actually *gasp* telling the truth. Even some guys like Lemon are telling the simple truth. Rap “culture” made Simmons a very rich guy...all these creeps(like Kanye West, Jay Z)sure don’t want this fab “culture” exposed. Obama and Holder kicked this hornet’s nest and it’s going to get ugly. A friend of mine in LA said the thugs are now taking the subway from So Central to Hollywood and doing the wilding/flash mob thing....so A LOT OF POLICE ARE ON Hollywood Blvd. My friend said that it’s really affected the tourist stuff. Something’s gonna blow. Thanks you racist POS Obama.

Blacks are in such denial of the widespread problems within their own ranks. What Lemon said about his own race is evident for everyone to see but look how bent out of shape the black victimhood society members are getting over all of this, and you wonder why it’s impossible to have rational discussions between all ethnic groups.

Russell Simmons: Don Lemon's a 'Slave,' 'Dangerous Talking Head,' 'Disservice to Black Community'...I think Lemon came out of the closet a while back when the gay marriage thingy was going so well - this guy Simmons must be one of those homophobes I've heard so much about.......

Well, that ends our most recent national conversation about race, before we get past introductions.

Great piece at Ace’s blog at Ace of Spades HQ
http://ace.mu.nu/#342037

scroll down to 7/28 overnight thread by Maetenloch (a beauty)

excerpt:
Wait - The National Conversation on Race Has Rules?!?

Of course it does - and they’re all designed to shut down (and shut up) any argument a white person might have. I learned this early on in high school when I fell for the classic ‘frank conversation about race’ gambit - which is never a conversation but rather an occasion for white people to be confronted about/confess their racist errors and seek absolution from any non-white members of the ‘conversation’.

Saggy pants is prison fashion. Easy access for male inmates.

Nothing hot about a guy with his pants hanging under his backside.

Simmons is part of the problem. Encouraging bad behaviors instead of having high expectations of black men.

Sadly, many, if not the majority, of them are too dumb to even recognize the condition of their situation.

I think Lemon is gay, and Simmons is believed to be also.

So he's "immune" from criticizing Lemon.

In January 2011 he stated in an interview that he is not a Buddhist as previously reported, but is a non-religious practitioner of Yoga, where he prays to the Atman, or the self. Simmons practices a method of Yoga known as Jivamukti Yoga, which encourages vegetarianism and social and environmental activism.

Simmons is a practitioner of Transcendental Meditation (TM) and a supporter of the David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace.

To #11> Change “The irony is you cling to your own chains” to “the irony is you bring your own chains”.

Seems that Lemon left the plantation while Simmons still works as a slavemaster/overseer to his own people.

Now, who is the real “Oreo”?

How about simply: “Bitter liberals, clinging to their Swastikas and Rap Music”

Heh...saggy pants are a crossover from prison culture-—its easier to hide shanks and contraband in them.

What’s a “darshiki?” Too bad they can’t spell their own so-called native clothing correctly!

I don’t mind that that’s happening right in the middle of BOwood. All those bleeding hearts can take them home and take care of them, maybe give them a lot of money. The thugs seem to have gotten very bold with Holder and Obama in charge. Who can blame them?
