Lately my dog has been spending a lot of time watching CNN.
This is not by choice; she is not an avid cable television news viewer, although she has been known to snarl any time Don Lemon appears onscreen.
Despite that, he has worked for NBC as a correspondent and also the host of Weekend Today and MSNBC.
In 2003, he began at NBC O&O station WMAQ-TV (5 in Chicago), and was a reporter as well as local news co-anchor.
Since 2014, he has hosted CNN's New Year's Eve special from New Orleans.
I am no longer confident in his ability as a Black journalist, he is no longer an inspiration for Black journalists who are working just as hard as he did. Lemon should know better; he is one of the few African-Americans in that field and yet he is adding fuel to the constant fire that we are working tirelessly to extinguish.
If you're not black you shouldn't be saying "Nigga".
