If you watch CNN's Newsroom on Saturday and Sunday evenings, you know Don Lemon. He often shocks the conscience by discussing controversial topics on his Saturday evening show and responding to the initial outrage on his Sunday evening show. Many times the outrage carries over to the following work week, which, many times, requires Don to re-address on the following weekend. In my opinion, Don is an equal opportunity outrager -- as he seems to outrage all races.

In a series/segment he calls "No Talking Points," this past weekend, Don decided to issue a little tough love to his African-American brothers and sisters. Last week, Bill O'Reilly opined that the reason there is so much violence and chaos in black precincts is because of the disintegration of the African-American family and because young black men, raised without structure, reject education and gravitate to street culture, drugs, hustling and gangs. Don Lemon agreed with these points raised by Bill O'Reilly. In response, Don suggested five things that black people (to whom the five things apply) should think about doing to alleviate these problems.

Don's 5 Things

5. Pull up your pants! "Walking around with your ass and your underwear showing is not okay!" It comes from prison culture.

4. Stop using the "N" word -- Black people are not taking the "N" word back by using it.

3. Respect where you live! Black people should stop dropping trash in Black neighborhoods.

2. Finish school! Break the cycle of poverty. Over the course of a career, a college grad will make nearly a million dollars more than a high school grad.

1. Just because you can have a baby does not mean you should! The lack of a male role model is an express train to prison!

Don's 5 Things drew extreme outrage from the African-American community, including people like Rev. Al Sharpton. Even though Don revealed that he lives in Harlem, unbeknownst to him, it appears that his remarks may have caused the revocation of his "hood pass," according to many black talk radio hosts like The Madd Hatta of The Madd Hatta Morning Show broadcast on KBXX - FM 97.9 The Box in Houston, Texas. First thing Monday morning, The Madd Hatta Morning Show and its listeners talked back to Don Lemon's "No Talking Points." However, after a little outrage, it seemed there was agreement that maybe Don said what needed to be said to the black community. What do you think?

Never heard of this guy. Don't watch much TV.
Don't see the problem.
He wouldn't shock me at all.He makes perfect sense to me. It's a shame that he even have to say it at all.

Al and Jessie probably hate him. Don Lemon is messing with their cash stream.

Why are you worried about Black women's hair when you should be worried about the "Fuk'd Up or lack of Foundation" that the Black community has and no REAL MEN who act RESPONSIBLE!

Yes, What Don Lemon said and Bill O'Reilly states is the truth!

You have WEAK ASRSE MEN like yourself worried about how Black women look when they don't even want men like you! Most women laugh and say you wasted your youth!

Your 60 years old , broke and have Poor health!

GO MENTOR BLACK BOYS! GO MENTOR IN THE CHURCH! BE AN EXAMPLE YOU DON'T HAVE THAT MUCH LONGER TO LIVE AND YOUW8ERE A VERY SELFISH SELF CENTERED MAN WHO DIDN'T DO FOR YOUR OWN FAMILY!

VERY SAD MACEO!
