Skip to comments.Don Lemon Speaks Over Terry Crews: Dead Black Children Are 'Not What Black Lives Matter Is About'
Posted on 07/07/2020 10:16:29 AM PDT by Sir Napsalot
On Monday night, CNN host Don Lemon spoke over black actor Terry Crews, lecturing him about the Black Lives Matter movement. Crews noted that Black Lives Matter has a broad range of demands far outside the realm of police brutality, and if other black voices try to suggest other approaches to various issues, they find themselves shut down and branded as Uncle Toms. Lemon illustrated Crews point by speaking over him, dismissing the actors concerns about black-on-black crime that has killed innocent children caught in the crossfire.
Lemon gave a rather interesting answer. He suggested that Black Lives Matter isnt about all black lives mattering, but rather only about police brutality. This explanation does not hold up, of course, because the Black Lives Matter movement uses police brutality as a springboard to claim that institutional racism pervades American society. Black-on-black crime is an important issue to address when a movement makes grandiose claims like that.
On the issue of black people shot by other black people, rather than police, Lemon said, I dont understand what that has to do with equality. I dont understand what that has to do with a movement thats for equality for black people. It seems like apples and oranges. ....
Lemon compared Crews criticism of the Black Lives Matter movement to an HIV activist complaining about not being included in the Cancer Matters movement.
If someone started a movement that said Cancer Matters, and then someone said, Why arent you talking about HIV? Its not the same thing. Were talking about cancer, the CNN host said.
So the Black Lives Matter movement is about police brutality and injustice in that matter. Not about whats happening in black neighborhoods.

Don Lemon is not truthful, but he played along as long as he can feign ignorance/innocence. And that begs the question why CNN wants to put up such imbecile as host.
If Lemon wants to bloviate and pontificate, why bother having guests at all?
Less than 10 unarmed black men were killed by police in 2019... In that same year over 7,000 black citizens were murdered by other blacks.
BLM is basically a Marxists organization using the black community to further it’s cause. Catchy name - that has NOTHING to do with their goal.
When black chldren don’t matter Don, you think black gays rank any higher in the food chain?
He (Lemon) and Fredo mostly invite guests to nod along.
Cuomo vs. Mark McCloskey segment showed poorly on Fredo, that he seldom got push backs from guests and didn’t know how to respond.
These ‘hosts’ biggest weapon is to cut people off and/or talk over them, to them it means they “won the debate”.
TERRY COULD TIE LEMON INTO A PRETZEL..................
So, it is based on a lie.
DON LEMON IS A LOW IQ LEMON,
“...BLM is basically a Marxists organization using the black community to further its cause. Catchy name - that has NOTHING to do with their goal.....”
I do believe THAT right there is a big fat.....BINGO!!!
Let’s face it, Don Lemon is just not very smart. He’ not feigning ignorance, he’s being himself.
Lemon is open about caring about the 10 and ignoring the 7000.
This is communism. This is Defund the Police. This is a call for anarchy and an end to the rule of law. It's not about black lives.
BLM is based on a lie and paid to perpetuate that lie. All to use the black community as a tool to gain power.
It's about (defunding) police and (pulling down) statues.
Most of it's supporters aren't even black.
and yet again like Occupy, the last BLM from about 3 years ago the left over plays their hand and it is all falling apart. We now have blacks lecturing blacks, black crime is going up, more dead blacks from blacks, Anarchists from the far left are using them, now the homosexual groups are protesting with them . Statues of Fredrick Douglas etc are being taken down thus showing his thick these people are and why the true reform which needs to be done is public education and the black community .
CNN is owned and dictated by an idiot. Idiocy is its primary code.
BLM is a lie on multiple levels:
Its core message of “Systemic race-driven police killings of Blacks” is simply not supported by data. As others pointed out, 9 black /41 total unarmed persons killed by police does not indicate systemic anything. A recent Michigan State Univ study also found no race-bias in police killings.
And BLM’s broader message of “Blacks live in mortal peril of white violence” is not only a lie, it is the polar opposite of the truth. According to FBI stats, Blacks kill whites at a per-capita rate 12 times that of the reverse. Blacks commit all violent crime against whites at a per-capita rate 30 times the reverse. Thirty. Times.
Blacks never gave a damn about black lives..if they did they would have gotten rid of Planned Parenthood a long time ago, that whole institution is about slaughtering black babies, committing genocide but they are fine with it..BLM is about COMMUNISM that is what they want, its NOT about saving black lives, its not about protecting black children from harm..and they think White Supremacy is a problem LOL they are killing off their own race and they dont seem to care
“Black Lives Matter” is just about tying every political issue to race so that the left can tell white people that they aren’t allowed to have any opinions about politics.
