#DonLemonOn: CNN Reporter Gets Roasted By Black Twitter After Defending Stop-And-Frisk

At this point, I think it would be safe to say Don Lemon is a glutton for punishment. As one of few African Americans reporting news on a major network, the CNN journalist has attempted to make his mark as some sort of expert on the black community. Unfortunately, for him and us, every time he opens his mouth he just can’t get it right.

Today, Black Twitter is having a field day at Lemon’s expense after he spoke in favor of stop-and-frisk on Black America Web’s radio program. Yes, you read that right. Proclaiming that, “If you question many people in New York City, even some black and Hispanic people, they will tell you that on the surface they don’t really have an issue with stop-question-and-frisk,” Lemon went on to pose this nonsensical question:

“Would you rather be politically correct or safe and alive? That’s the real issue facing the citizens of New York and pretty soon, ultimately YOU.”

And that’s when the veteran (term to be used loosely now) journalist got his behind handed to him with the hashtag #DonLemonOn. Bringing up nearly every racial issue that has plagued African Americans in the United States, Black Twitter decided to create their own commentary on how Don Lemon might address issues like slavery, segregation, and more. Read on and have a good laugh at his expense in the face of his ignorant commentary. Thoughts?
