Don Lemon With Suggestions for the Black Community

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 1:42 pm

Nice video from Don Lemon. (No embed code, unfortunately.) He’s being attacked for it by the professional race hustlers, of course:

By the way, Don, I have talked about black on black crime plenty here, and not in the context of sticking it to black people. In fact, much of the time I have been sticking it to white journalists at the L.A. Times for ignoring crime against black victims, in favor of eyeball-grabbing stories like Paris Hilton’s court troubles.

P.S. Professional race writer Jenée ‏Desmond-Harris is busy wringing her hands over Lemon’s supposed ignorance, while not taking on a single specific point he made. I’d ask her myself, but she has me blocked on Twitter as part of her quest for a national conversation on race.

  2. Here is the O’Reilly piece Lemon references. You can probably find a version without the advertising lead in.

    Well done DL but five will get you ten there’s going to be hell to pay from the race hucksters.

  7. I’m not ordinarily a fan of Don Lemon, but he’s right here for anyone of any race who wishes to minimize being negatively stereotyped.

    That said, anyone should have the right to dress as they wish, speak as they wish, etc. You just can’t choose how people see you when you do this.

  8. I especially like what he had to say about parenting. Great point, Don.

  9. She blocked you on Twitter? Now that’s what post-racial America looks like.

  10. “You just can’t choose how people see you when you do this.”

    Former Conservative – You can’t control how other people view you, but there are some pretty strong indicators of how you can change your odds from being viewed potentially more positively from more negatively or vice versa. I think that was the point Lemon was trying to make.

  11. That’s why I spend so much time getting into bathing suit shape for the summer. :)

    daleyrocks (bf33e9)

  12. i’m always in bathing suit shape…

    pear is a shape, and no one can see in my back yard without trying hard, so they deserve what they get if they do.

    Well yeah, I agree with him.

    Former Conservative (6e026c)

  15. If you guys start discussing bathing suits, it risks eliciting Former Conservative Formerly Uncircumsized to talk about the drawbacks of uh, circumcision. Or something.

  18. Those seeking applications to become Jedi, to the temple come, wearing pants around knees, profanity using, in the recycler their application goes. If pen they do not have to complete application, those follow also.

    Jedi must not scruffy look. Prepared with writing instrument they must be.

  19. I think we may be missing the core issue here.

    They don’t see the dysfunction in the black community as a problem. They see it as a prototype.

  20. Yoda also not like ringing of personal communication devices while interview do.

  21. The black community ignores people like Dr. Sowell and Col. West.
    If D.L. keeps speaking the truth, he will be next. I look for a pivot from young Donny.

    You are an evil bastard. Would you even think about talking to the victim of female genital mutilation that way?

    Yeah, leaving the philosophical auspices of conservatism because of your general — and much noticed — aggregate lack of empathy was a wise decision.

  35. The knives are out – need another update with MSNBC’s Goldie Taylor calling Lemon a “turn coat [sic] mofo” and adding “GTFOOHWTBS”.

    so much anger……

    harkin (fc8e09)

  36. He showed me a wallet he had made from them. I said not bad. He said it gets better, if you rub it it becomes a briefcase.

    nk (875f57)

  37. Maybe he is now a “White African American.”

    Folks, it’s all grievance politics and victimology. Call it the rising ethnocracy. But just like the nutball Nazis with all their bizarre guides to determining one’s “Aryan-ness,” it’s all about political power. Period.

    Simon Jester (4df38d)

  38. Mr. Lemon pimped the dead newtown babywazzles like it was the last night of the democratic convention

    he had piers morgan envy way bad and it showed

  39. Unlike Piers, he is amenable to certain notions,

  40. Lemon’s piece was actually courageous. Murder. Parenting. Littering? Go, Don.

    O’Reilly has been en fuego too. And totally correct. So has Ray Kelly in the WSJ.

    I suspect this is why O has stopped talking about Trayvon. The real cause of death is becoming obvious.

    My liberal relatives tho will not even listen. They insist blacks do not commit crimes in greater number than any other race. *sigh*

    Patricia (be0117)

  41. Patricia, your relatives don’t hang out in high crime areas. Or they will insist the problem is economic (which in fact is part of the problem).

    It kind of reminds me of the “Take Back the Night” marches on campus. The people marching and chanting only seem interested in taking back the comparatively safe part of the night on campus; they don’t often march to the “bad” part of town to chant and march.

    Which is why the civil rights marchers of the 50s and 60s impressed me: they knowingly walked into danger. It wasn’t a hip pose to them.

    Simon Jester (4df38d)

  42. I think Obama stopped talking about Trayvon because somebody told him it’s not smart to scare white people. It makes them pass concealed carry, expand stand your ground laws, and build more prisons.

    nk (875f57)

  43. My liberal relatives tho will not even listen. They insist blacks do not commit crimes in greater number than any other race.

    Perhaps they don’t. Maybe they’re just really bad at not getting caught.

    I think Obama stopped talking about Trayvon because somebody told him it’s not smart to scare white people.

    Well, he already has the black vote mostly locked up. If he manages to pull an extra percent of the black vote with this racial politics, but lose even half a percent of the white and Hispanic votes respectively during the midterms, then it’s hard to see how he wins. And maybe he’s just figured this out.

    has black youth crime and incarceration increased or decreased under Obama brotherhood?

    EPWJ (6140f6)

  46. 35 “So, before Hip Hop, before kids wore hoodies and saggy pants, how did we explain their deaths?”

    The drug-dealing pugilists, hopped up on PCP and dope, what assaulted pudgies packing pistolas?

    Collateral damage.

  47. Quentin Tarantino needs to rerelease Mandingo to show typical white people what would happen if black people with intact foreskins get angry.

    daleyrocks (bf33e9)

  48. Another update! Inspector Roland Martin is on the case and he blames Fox News for Lemon’s moment of clarity.

    Are we really expected to have a national conversation on race when every common sense solution is treated as racism and anyone offering it, even black liberals are referred to as mother****ers and “turn coats”?

    harkin (fc8e09)

  49. i took my tasty welfare foozle

    and put it in a barrel

    and down the river to the falls I sent it

    a free lunch I’d not imperil

    these food stamps … it’s what they’re forical!

    or is it metaphorical?

    America – what a whorical

    food stamps she has galorical

    but her outlook is quite poorical

    happyfeet (8ce051)

  50. 44. We’ve basically got another 18 months of Treasury rollovers, over and above Fed purchases, which means upward pressure on interest rates.

    About at the end, perhaps before, the Fed will have over $4 Trillion in loss producing assets. IOW they will be printing money inorder to print money.

    A couple of EU sovereigns and Argentina will have defaulted and municipal bonds gotten much pricier. No one will be sending EBT-purchased groceries to Haiti.

    Blackhawks over Chi-town again yesterday.

  51. What we need is to study history.

    The pathologies prevalent in many black communities in America are eerily identical to pathologies prevalent in Irish communities in America in the 19th century.

    Michael Ejercito (2e0217)

  52. The cultural and economic problems that have been roiling too many people within black America — for too many decades — has gotten so excessive and become so entrenched that even a staunch liberal like Don Lemon, working for a staunchly liberal outfit like CNN, can no longer pretend that harsh reality is actually rainbows and unicorns.

    The first step in a 12-step recovery program is for a person to at least admit he has a problem and to be completely honest about the source of that problem. The rampant liberalism that has plagued black America for decades (and the “limousine liberalism” of the US in general) has made that first step all but impossible to take, much less to move far beyond.

    Mark (938403)

  53. He did good today and deserves credit for it, but Don Lemon will break your heart again tomorrow. Count on it.

  54. kibbles n bits kibbles n bits don’s gonna get him more kibbles n bits

    propaganda sluts are as predictable as hyperinflation

    it’s kinda their job

    happyfeet (8ce051)

  55. Yes, Simon, today’s “civil rights” is a toothless pantomime of the real deal. The song “Officer Krupke” in West Side Story, which mocks the whole idea of crime being caused by sociology, is now over 50 years old. Half a century of this blather!

    Finally, people are seeing the truth.

    But I think we are really in a second Reconstruction, and this time the Dems have pandered to and bought off the votes of black people.

    NOOOooooooooo……

    Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.

  57. Don Lemon must have fallen and hit his head that morning, because usually he is a race-baiting hectoring dbag.

  58. Advice for teenaged boys;

    • Don’t listen to rich pop-stars about the glamor of the outlaw life.

    • Don’t dress like a criminal class unless you want to be mistaken for a criminal.

    • Don’t wander around on other peoples’ property.

    • Don’t get surly if you get called on wandering around on other peoples’ property.

    • Don’t try to punch out adults, no matter how badass you think you are.

    • If, in spite of all common sense, you do all of the above, don’t be surprised if you get shot.
