Even if what he says carries some validity, none of what he's saying is coming from a positive place.
You can speak a degree of truth and still be coming from a very derogatory place.
Why would you say that? Why would you be against a person that is educated and most likely worked very hard to get where he is? I have always liked Don Lemon before this because he is excellent at what he does. I admire him even more now that he spoke out.

I am against the whole community thing, it's like a cult that everyone has to think and act the same way. But if it has to be like that, then Don Lemon IS the black community.

My sentiments exactly! He was pandering to Bill O'Riley's racist constituents, affirming their bigoted beliefs, focusing on the symptoms and not the underlying causes. Of course, we are complicit in many of our aliments but his list is an oversimplification of the problem, plus, if he was sincere or passionate about addressing some of those issues with blacks, he would have chosen a more appropriate and melanated venue to share his concerns.

Lemon was wrong, the sagging actually come from slavery. That's how they dressed the slaves, women included. In fact they dressed them worst than prisoners. Your clothes often sagged from sunrise to sunset in the hot sun, and massa could care less whether your outfit fitted...you were considered 1/3 human being. That's the reality.

Apparently you haven't seen the rednecks in Oklahoma who refuse to wear a belt or suspenders.
And plumbers are legendary when it comes to butt cleavage.

You have to be in front of a computer unseen to post a statement as dumb as this.

Yes, I've seen them too. Now that you bring this up, blacks did these jobs too for whites during slavery.

"Don Lemon is the Black Community" in that he's Black, however, I want to be PERFECTLY clear on this...the only thing that constitutes Don Lemon's "Blackness" is the fact that he's melanated...THAT IS ALL.

Don Lemon in NOT a member of OUR community because in order to be a member of the Black community, or of ANY community for that matter, one has to be about the holistic interest of that community in which Don Lemon is NOT. Being a MEMBER of our community affords one MUCH MORE than the right to just reprove & criticize. This is where Don Lemon, like so many others seem to be getting it all fcuked up.

I've about had it with these "n3gr03$" that sit on these blatantly bigoted networks, using their platforms attacking US & guising it as "constructive criticism" or "tough love".

I'm not saying what Don Lemon spoke out on was wrong or inaccurate...what I'm addressing is the undercurrent of ill-intent behind what he's saying and WHY it is he's saying what he's saying. Don Lemon only wants to secure his place in the annals of both, the media elite & the Black elite. But Lemon knows that in order for HIM to achieve this he also has to fortify and perpetuate the tenets of white supremacy...and this is what he does.

Don Lemon is Black...but he's a MEMBER of THEIR COMMUNITY...not OURS.

Brother...you are SPOT ON...as always!

Don is influential enough at this point that if he wanted to construct a forum designed to tackle OUR plights, he could do it apart from his KKKracka constituents. The thing is, he doesn't WANT to.

Again, I have no problem with some of the things Lemon addressed, but its as clear as Bahamian water that this dude is sideways in his thinking and that this n!**a bats for the WHITE Sox.

Here goes another "black race" lol. Don Lemon stated things that were true and his own attacks him for it LMWAO. Serious question, is it really hard to be a black? It seems like your own would rather see you stay stupid, worthless, and adhere to destructive behavior than to do better. Don Lemon need to align himself with people who aren't working for SatAn - blacks.

Stereotypes exist because they can easily be supported simply by observing.

Of Course, Blacks will scream "datz raycist" even with valid sources or black based research.

I read about slavery in Virginia history class back in the 5th grade. got busy with life and haven't thought about it since. That was long ago.
And I believe that droopy pants style originated in the U.S. prisons. Remember reading about it somewhere. Maybe it was a documentary.

The Prison Industrial Complex (PIC) is the modern day plantation. Know the whole story. If you don't know the whole past, you're bound to repeat it.
