Skip to comments.CNN’s Don Lemon Backs Up Bill O’Reilly: ‘He Doesn’t Go Far Enough’ In Criticizing Black Culture
Posted on 07/28/2013 5:40:13 AM PDT by NotYourAverageDhimmi
Bill OReillys remarks on race last week drew heavy criticism from Chris Hayes, Bill Maher, Al Sharpton, Larry Wilmore, and more, but one unlikely person is agreeing with him: CNN host Don Lemon.
Lemon addressed the wounds inflicted by black males onto their community on his No Talking Points segment Saturday afternoon, saying he was able to bring this up now that the George Zimmerman trial had concluded. Before the verdict, right wing media had consistently asked why the liberal media was fixating on Trayvon Martin while ignoring rampant black-on-black violence, a deflection, in Lemons words, from the injustices of the Martin shooting. But now that Zimmerman had been acquitted, it was time for some tough love on the subject.
Lemon played a clip of OReilly stating, The reason there is so much violence and chaos in the black precincts is the disintegration of the African American family Raised without much structure, young black men often reject education and gravitate towards the street culture, drugs, hustling, gangs. Nobody forces them to do that. Again, it is a personal decision.
Bills got a point, Lemon said. In fact, hes got more than a point In my estimation, he doesnt go far enough.

Lemon then listed five essential reforms black men need to make in their lives in order to improve themselves and their communities: hike up their pants, remove the n-word from their vocabulary, take care of their communities, finish high school, and lower the rate of children born out of wedlock.
More than 72% of children in the African Americans are born out of wedlock, Lemon said. Studies show that lack of a male role model is an express train right to prison, and the cycle continues.....

I think the movie “To Sir With Love” needs a revival
Thank you, Mr. Lemon......MORE BLACKS need to speak up, THEN THEY NEED TO HELP THEIR “Communities”.
We could use some more “Death Wish” type movies too.
Reading the comments over there is very discouraging.
It seems a lot of people are deep in denial. Which sort of explains some things, but it don’t inspire hope.
The only time they “speak up” is when they need to blame whitey for all of their woes.
And Booker T. Washington, Thomas Sowell, Walter E. Williams and Larry Elder, and others should be among the role models kids are taught to emulate.
There has been 50 years of doing it one way and it's been a colossal failure, try something else before you destroy yourselves. If we could help, we would, but you won't let us.
To bad Don chose a life style that doesn’t lean towards procreation
That is truly shocking.
This is temporary. Lemon is a left wing nut job.
While this is a sad state of affairs within the black community, why aren’t black women closing their legs? Birth control is readily available as well.
Aren’t they capable of just saying NO?
Remember the all-black school in VA that disinvited Justice Clarence Thomas from being their commencement speaker because the black staff decided he wasn’t a good role model??? They probably had some low-life rapper instead.
Clarence Thomas’s family was abandoned by his father, his mother was dysfunctional and a drug user, and he was brought up by his grandparents. They were poor but worked hard running a tiny heating-oil delivery business in Savannah (where Clarence Thomas would get up before dawn to help his grandfather deliver oil before school), and he attended a Catholic school where the sisters told him he had to study hard and apply himself. The result? A Supreme Court Justice. And that’s not a role model?
But no black conservative will ever be accepted by the 100% Dem black establishment as being black, let alone a role model. Until black “leaders” distance themselves from the Dems and the plantation-mentality of the left, they will never be able to be of any help to the rest of their misnamed “community.”
Don’t worry most of the liberal news blogs scrub a lot of comments that don’t support a left wing POV.
Uncle Same pays them cold hard cash to just say YES.
The one thing that blacks can’t blame on whitey is their killing each other in record numbers.

Oh, and incidentally, if black people still insist on blaming white people, they should start with white liberals. They are some of the chief culprits in the destruction of black society.
