Don lemon Defends #SpringValleyAssault Cop
Don Lemon is at it again. Last night, he went on CNN to semi-defend the security guard who tossed the Black high school student around the classroom. Apparently, Lemon needs more evidence than the actual moving video that everyone is looking at.
Here’s what he said:
It does look disturbing — the part that is most disturbing to me is seeing her thrown around. As far as the desk going over, I don’t know if the desk fell over because she didn’t want to get up, or if he pushed over, I don’t know, so I think there’s context to everything, I would like to see what happens before and I would like to see what happened afterwards… [But] it does look horrible, it does look like there’s no excuse for what he’s doing for her, [but] we don’t know… It only shows a small slice in time of what happened.
It’s another example of Don Lemon using his TV time to treat Black lives like they don’t matter. At this point, it’s really time to look at CNN as a whole for continuing to employ someone who hates his own Blackness so much. He’s beyond the point of “troll” and delved into the point of being a harm to Blackness. Get him out of here.
Just look at the things people are saying about him…
