Skip to comments.DON LEMON: ‘Not Knowing You’re Racist Is The New Racisim’

Donald Sterling and Cliven Bundy- Two people, who are recently accused of disparaging black people, some of it caught on video and audiotape; yet they deny they are racist.
Last week on CNN Bundy was recorded saying:
If I say Negro or black boy or slave, Im not Im not. If those people cannot take those kind of words and not be offensive then martin Luther King has not gotten his job done yet.
So in some odd way to Cliven Bundy its Dr. Kings fault that the rest of the world doesnt line up with his point of view.
That was last week.
This week theres a new one from Los Angeles Clippers basketball team owner Donald Sterling.
You want me to have hate towards black people? I dont want you to have hate. Thats what people do. They turn things around. I want you to love them, privately. In your whole life every day you could be with them, every single day of your life Not in public? But why publicize it on your Instagram and why bring them to my games?
You can love them, privately.
Sounds like the old slave owner who would pick one of his slaves and love them privately.
Its all too warped and twisted and really defies any explanation beyond bigotry and racism.
Clinical Psychologist Dr. Jeff Gardere said on CNN that, Im not surprised by any of this. We have people who have very racist views but who dont consider themselves to be racist. They think the things that they say about certain people and their thought patterns are based in some sort of reality. Theyre based on stereotypes of course.
The stereotype is that people other than those who look like you are not considered worthy or good enough to be seen with you in public.
Ive said for years now that the new racism is the denial of racism.
In the past few weeks after hearing from Bundy and Sterling, I have changed my mind.
The new racism is being unaware that you are racist.
And that is the worst kind of anything; to be woefully ignorant.
Because in the latest two cases ignorance truly is not bliss.
It is downright dangerous.
Not knowing you’re an idiot is the new Democrat Party.
Person 1: The first sign of an alcoholic is denial
Person 2: I’m not an alcoholic
Person 3: Can’t you see it? you are an alcoholic.
The irony is that Don Lemon doesn’t think he’s a racist just because he’s a faggot.
Irony - posting about ‘racist’ from a web site called blackamericaweb.com
Everybody is a racist to someone.
He thinks he’s ‘double speeeeecial’.
Isn’t Lemon packing fudge? No, I don’t mean the candy variety.
So the only way to prove you’re not racist is to admit you’re racist.
Sir, when did you stop beating your wife?
White liberals did more to make race an issue (and black people under their spell dutifully carried that ghastly ball) than white conservatives ever did.
This is Satan’s game, folks. It can only be fought by embracing God.
Everyone is prejudiced to one degree or another. Very few are truly racist, which requires a firm belief that one race or ethnicity is inherently superior to another.
I you are white, it’s racism and must be stamped out, even if said in the privacy of your own home or thought inside your head.
If you are a person of color, it is free speech. You deserve it, whitey.
Is this the Don Lemon that sleeps with other men?
If so, it explains a lot.
That is absolutely true, but the word has been bastardized to the point where it now means "any speech that a black person finds offensive."
It's possible to be a racist and love other races, while at the same time it's equally possible to not be a racist and hate other races.
Racist, bigoted or just garden variety prejudiced....I’m not sure which I am.
Don Lemon is woefully ignorant on a multitude of subjects. Not joking.
“The new racism is being unaware that you are racist.”
Game, set, match. You can’t argue with that because you are already a convicted heretic.
Apparently it is also possible to be a racist and hate YOUR OWN race.
Don’t worry, if you forget you can always turn on CNN and they’ll remind you that you are a racist.
