Black Leadership Group Takes CNN’s Don Lemon to the Woodshed Over ‘White Men’ Comment

Hopefully the network will actually listen.

Published

on

A black leadership network, Project 21, released a statement on Thursday asking CNN President Jeff Zucker to deal with anchor Don Lemon’s recent racist comments about white men being the “biggest terror threat” in America.

The statement was penned by Project 21 co-chairs Stacy Washington, Horace Cooper, and Bishop Council Nedd II.

Within a space of five seconds, CNN’s Don Lemon went from saying we shouldn’t demonize people to broadly labeling white men as our nation’s ‘biggest terror threat.’ That’s not responsible journalism. This cannot stand. CNN President Jeff Zucker recently called out the White House for its criticism of the media, saying President Trump doesn’t comprehend the importance of the words he uses. It’s time for Zucker to put his own house in order – starting with explaining how Don Lemon’s outrageous statement can stand in light of Zucker’s call for civility.

Project 21 is a 25-year-old black leadership network sponsored by the National Center for Public Policy Research, a “free-market, independent conservative think-tank.”

“So we have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them,” Lemon said on Monday during an appearance on “Chris Cuomo Primetime.”

“There is no travel ban on them. There is no ban on… they had the Muslim ban, there is no white guy ban. What do we do about that?” Lemon continued.

Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson also slammed Lemon for his egregious comments during an appearance he made on “Fox & Friends.”

“You know, we have a history of dividing people into different segments and that has caused a lot of problems in the past,” said Carson. “And we’ve paid big prices for that. But let’s don’t (sic) sweep it under the rug. Let’s acknowledge it, but let’s learn from it and move in a positive direction, not a negative direction.”

Rather than learning from his mistakes and admitting that he was wrong for what he said, Lemon has decided to double down on his comments, citing some stats about murders being committed by far-right extremists to support his opinion.

Clandestine Cabal Seeks to Hide Info in Jeffrey Epstein Case

Speculation over the identities of the concerned parties has run rampant online, given how well connected Epstein is.

Jeffrey Epstein

In the pantheon of political pop culture, Jefferey Epstein is a bit of a lightning rod of controversy…as he should be. Epstein, who has already settled a lawsuit alleging him of sexually trafficking underage girls, is now fighting to keep some of the secrets of that case under wraps after an earlier adjudication was set to unseal the files. Epstein, who has been linked to some of America’s most powerful politicians and personalities, now has some reinforcements in his quest to keep his crimes quiet. Two mystery litigants citing privacy concerns are making a last-ditch bid to keep secret some details in a lawsuit stemming from wealthy financier Jeffrey Epstein’s history of paying underage girls for sex. Just prior to a court-imposed deadline Tuesday, two anonymous individuals surfaced to object to the unsealing of a key lower-court ruling in the case, as well as various submissions by the parties. Both people filed their complaints in the New York-based 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals, which is overseeing the case. The two people said they could face unwarranted speculation and embarrassment if the court makes public records from the suit, in which Virginia Giuffre, an alleged Epstein victim, accused longtime Epstein friend Ghislaine Maxwell of engaging in sex trafficking by facilitating his sexual encounters with teenage girls. Maxwell has denied the charges. Speculation over the identities of the concerned parties has run rampant online, given how well connected Epstein is. [Bill] Clinton, the 42nd president of the United States, was friends with Epstein and often flew on his plane and visited him on his island. Epstein donated to the Clinton Foundation and various Democratic causes and candidates. However, there has been no evidence that he was involved with underage sex activities. [Kenneth Starr is a]…former federal judge, U.S. solicitor general and independent…

Reports Out of Camp Biden Say A Flag-Burning Running Mate is In The Works

The democratic frontrunner hasn’t even announced his candidacy yet.

Joe Biden

Joe Biden is an odd bird, there’s no doubt about it, but that hasn’t stopped the democrats from being concerned over his physical and fiscal attributes on the eve of his long-coming 2020 presidential announcement. Biden, who has not officially announced, allowed a well-calculated “slip of the tongue” to be a barometer for himself last week should he go through with it.  And with a nearly complete staff underneath him, it’s really a matter of “when” and not “if” we find ourselves with Biden on the ballot. Now, in an oddly early bit of political chess, Biden’s “not yet campaign” is the source of a report that has the former Vice President eyeing up a controversial VP pick of his own. Advisers for former Vice President Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign-in-waiting are debating whether to name failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams as his running mate, a Thursday report says. According to Axios, Biden aides believe adding Abrams to the ticket would send a strong signal to voters that he’s not “just another old white guy.” The outlet said Team Biden isn’t going all-in on picking the rising progressive star just yet, worrying that the move could be received as a “gimmick” and open the former Vice President up to a new line of attacks. The move comes at a time in which the democratic party polling shows that rich, old, white men are the most popular candidates that they have so far. Abrams has long been chastised by patriotic Americans for her involvement in a particular protest. Stacey Abrams on Tuesday defended her presence at a 1992 burning of a Georgia state flag, which contained the Confederate battle flag design, saying at a gubernatorial debate, “I’m a very proud Georgian.” “Twenty-six years ago as a college freshman, I along with many other Georgians — including…
