POLL: Should Don Lemon be fired for his racist statement against white men?

OCTOBER 31, 2018

A racist statement made during a discussion on CNN Tuesday evening between hosts Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon has left many people appalled and demanding answers.

Lemon declared in a bizarre rant that the “biggest terror threat in this country is white men.” Below is is full statement:

“I keep trying to point out to people not to demonize any one group or any one ethnicity, but we keep thinking that the biggest terror threat is something else. Some people who are marching towards the border like it’s eminent. And the last time they did this, a couple of hundred people came and they, you know, most of them didn’t get into the country. Most of them got tuckered out before they even made it to the border,” Lemon told his CNN colleague. “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.”

“There is no travel ban on them,” Lemon added. “There is no ban on… you know, they had the Muslim ban. There is no ‘white guy ban.’ So what do we do about that?”

PLEASE TAKE OUR POLL BELOW – WE WANT YOUR OPINION! Should Lemon be forced to apologize for his statement, or be fired? Should there be consequences?

    He should have been fired after appearing on TV ON New Years Eve DRUNK. He is disgraceful. Much worse than Megan Kelly and I don’t like her at all

    I guess it’s ok to be racist if your black. Don Lemonhead and Van Jones say alot of racist crap. Van Jones called the win of Trump a white lash to the country. When Obama won we should have called it a black lash to the country. Can you imagine that outrage.

    To fire seems to be the protocol for this behavior…ask Megyn Kelly, but we all know CNN! Although, I would like to hear CNN’S defense of Lemon’s comment or maybe, (cough, cough), an apology, which is absurd, to me…not adequate reprimanding.

    The double standards are ridiculous!! He should have been fired a long time ago. This isn’t the first racist statement he has made.

    I have found that since Trump won people of color think its now cool to be openly racist. They are even more racist towards their own people of color who marry a white person or have white friends. Just look at what hate Kanye West has endured because he actually stood up to racism.

    A common misconception is that only ‘white’ people can be racist. Not true at all, some of the most racist people are black. Al Sharpton would top the list, but there are many more. Don Lemon would also be on the list. CNN will not fire anyone for being a racist, the only way you could get fired is if you proclaimed Trump as your hero. Should Lemon get fired, the answer would be yes, not just for this comment but for all the ones he made in the past

    Lemon should actually hang for sedition and treason, not to mention his Obama like hunger for raping, torturing and murdering these unfortunate tiny little boys. The CNN Pedophile Faggots drink the adrenaline saturated blood of their victims. This makes these CNN faggots feel extra special when they eat their favorite “tender tasty flesh parts which are preferred by the pathetic child raping CNN Pedo Faggots such as Don Lemmon. Anderson Pooper, Chris Cuomo, Brian Stelter, Jake the Snake Sucking Tapper, John King, Jim Acosta, Marc Lamont Hill, Symone Sanders, David Axlerod and faggot of the totally corrupt blood sucking DC faggots, yes boys and girls, the head child raping RINO faggot Rick Santorum.

    Of course they only eat the white, healthy, blue eyed, blonde haired little boys, just like it was filet mignon.

    Yes these sub-human Rothschild Controlled, Projectile Vomit Media filth will soon be exposed and executed at camp gitmo for their unforgivable crimes in the very near future.

    I cannot believe that this country is accepting this as okay, when if a white person had said something similar about “black men” they would have been fired immediately. This is exactly why our country is is as divided as it is today. This kind of talk needs to stop! If you want to criticize someone individually that is one thing but to lump everyone of an age, a color, race, religion, etc…into the same category is totally unfair!

    Can the man go one day without calling someone racist, Seriously he needs to go, always pushing the race card, its bad for society as a whole. I guess that’s the only reason CNN keeps him is for the ratings on race baiting.

    First of all, I would’ve responded by saying does that include you’re white husband Don? Then I would’ve said that black men between the ages of 18 and 35 make up 4 % of America’s population yet commit over 50% of all the murders in America. Those are FBI statistics, so it seems that black men in America are far more dangerous than white men. I wish someone would have the guts to tell him the truth!

    Don lemon should be fired that is a real horrible thing to say. Today he says white men tomorrow he can pick another color. United States has come along way . Why are we starting the color card ? My kids classrooms are full of all different kinds of beautiful skin color and they all love each other . Stop this black and white topic and let our children live in Harmony.

    Yes Don Lemon-Head should be FIRED!
    What he said is a total lie. According to the FBI stats on Hate Groups in the USA, the most dangerous racist groups in the USA are NOT Whites. There are actually MANY different large groups of Black Nationalists. Hate Groups! There are more Hate Groups by Racist Black NationalisTS than any other Hate Group. Don Lemon tried to basically say that most White people are Racist & Dangerous, which is such BULL! There is only a few different very small White Hate Groups in the USA, the different Black Hate Groups are larger & there’s many more of them too.

    Racist Don Lemon should have been fired along time ago.
    If ANY White person watches CNN then they are Self Hating Ignorant Morons!
