CNN’s Don Lemon Alleges National Guard Called Protesters the “N” Word

Don Lemon is a controversial character, but he seems to be emotionally invested in the protests occuring in Ferguson, Missouri.  Lemon told a story on the air that surprised some observers, as he said that one of his production people overheard a member of the National Guard use the n-word when referring to the protesters.  

Lemon doesn’t say if the guardsman was black or white, which could be another issue within itself.  But the implications are still quite disturbing. So, we ask:  Is this the attitude of one person or something that can be aggregated to the collective?  What does it all mean and why did Lemon mention it on the air?

CNN anchor Don Lemon returned to the news studio after spending several days in Ferguson with a lot of information to impart on his viewers. Lemon, while hosting a “Black and White in America” townhall, was discussing the fαtal shoοting of Michael Brown when he offered a story about racism within law enforcement.

“I’m just going to be honest with you. Last night, one of my producers said that they — I won’t say if it’s a he or she, because I don’t want to give anyone away — said they came in contact with one of the members of the National Guard and that they said, ‘You want to get out of here because you’re white, because these n-words, you never know what they’re going to do.’ True story. I kid you not. 2014, a member of the National Guard. And my producer doesn’t lie. It is a true story.”

    Don Lemon is one of those high yellow, light skinned want to be uppity! Frankly I can’t stand him, during the death of Whitney Houston he was a real dick, making statements out of school! As a reporter he should know that, “hear say” information is not admissible therefore, Mr. Lemon SAVE the RAP, you don’t like black people any way so shut your, “Uncle Tom” face, I will be happy to further talk about your two faced A$$ets

THEREFORE….anything that he reports on is….LET’S just say ” I give’s a shit Not”……He, like SOOOOOO MANY OTHER prominent Blacks, disgust me to the “inth” degree!!!! So quick to point out or shall I say Exploit and belittle the plight of Black people…SOOOOOO
      quick to Blame a people of color for the atrocities inflicted upon them…..You know why gangs were started Mr.Friggin Lemon, HAS ANYONE EVER ASKED???????….Any of you scholastic achievers , HAVE YOU EVER!!!!!
      I THINK NOT, OTHERWISE, THERE WOULDN’T BE SUCH A DIVIDE AMONGST OUR PEOPLE….As Usual, If it doesn’t affect One on a PERSONAL Level, then it must be SOMETHING, these black men are doing to cause their untimely demise…. DO AS YOU’RE TOLD, DON’T DRESS A CERTAIN WAY, DON’T TALK A CERTAIN WAY, as if people of color DON’T have the Good given sense to not use EBONICS when applying for jobs, this blame game (blame the victim) most brain washed (Don Lemon, Stacey Dash Hello perpetrate us disgusting to say the least!!!

    The fact that we as a people are referred to in that way is systematic, I dare say there’s no public or private entity consisting of a white majority who thinks of us differently. It’s not a surprise, doesn’t matter who reports it . Even if Don has lost some credibility in our community.
