CNN’s Don Lemon Backs Up Bill O’Reilly:‘He Doesn’t Go Far Enough’ In Criticizing Black Culture

Bill O’Reilly’s 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 Lemon’s 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 O’Reilly 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.”
“Bill’s got a point,” Lemon said.“In fact, he’s got more than a point…In my estimation, he doesn’t 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.”
“Please, pay attention to and think about what has been presented in recent history as aceptable behavior,” Lemon finished.“Pay close attention to the hip hop and rap culture that many of you embrace, a culture that glorifies everything I just mentioned, thug and reprehensible behavior, a culture that is making a lot of people rich—just not you. And it’s not going to.”
“That said, though, the political right is not off the hook.” Lemon played a clip of Kirsten Powers remarking on how convenient it was the conservative media only cares about black violence when they can use it to “stick it to the black community.”

Your not humble your ARROGANT, SLY, SNEAKY, DECEITFUL, HABITUAL LIAR, SCOFFER, FOOL, SELFISH, SELF CENTERED, CHIILDRISH, IMMATURE, INSECURE, POOR DECISION MAKER, ITS ALL ABOUT YOU AND NOBODY ELSE!
WHY DID THAT DUMB WHITE WOMAN STAY?
Isn't if funny how Black women can see the horrible traits in you?
O’Reilly:‘Grievance Industry’ Crying About Racism While ‘Communities They Claim To Care For Self-Destruct’
by Josh Feldman | 8:30 pm, July 31st, 2013 VIDEO» 274 comments
Bill O’Reilly has made no secret of his disdain for the “civil rights industry” distracting from the real problems of the black community. He called out MSNBC commentator Michael Eric Dyson, an Illinois state representative, and a Connecticut newspaper for engaging in baseless smears instead of talking about the facts of what’s ailing the black community.
O’Reilly said the “far-left grievance industry [is] getting more desperate” in continuing to call America a “racist society.” He slammed Dyson’s latest comments by continuing to marvel at how he’s a university professor, and criticized Illinois state representative Monique Davis for saying many people believe the police are killing young black men.
He also took the New Haven Register to task for likening the KKK’s message to rhetoric being thrown out by Ted Nugent, Fox News, and Ann Coulter. O’Reilly put up the names and faces of the people in charge of the paper, saying they declined to talk with him about it “because they are cowards.” He called the Register a “vile, libelous piece of garbage” that “has lost all credibility.”
O’Reilly concluded that the “grievance industry has no interest in actually improving conditions for mostly poor black Americans,” that they want to “condemn America while the communities they claim to care for self-destruct.”

That's your decision because you believe it! Just like you brainwashed yourself into thinking white women are superior!
Don Lemon, Don Lemon Cnn, Don Lemon n Word, Don Lemon No Talking Points, Black Voices News
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?
STFU you hypocrite with Double standards! You sound like a Grandiose FOOL! You invested 35 years in White women and have done N-O-T-H-I-N-G for the Black community except put Black women down who look like your Mother while IMPOTENT Black males like yourself offered No support!
Are you insane?
Your went around harassing young BW telling them how "Ugly, Black, Unwanted they are, Napped Headed Hoes, too many OOW babies and Bill O"Reilly talks about those things that are going on and hasn't even hit the tip of the iceberg.
Why do you think Black women don't want Black males? They look at you MACEO and your friends behaviors! You dont do a damn thing except say White women are better and the Ultimate woman but yet your alone! LMAO
You Reaped what you've sown!
