CNN's Don Lemon: "You Weigh How Much You Should Criticize The President Because He's Black"
Lemon spends over minute explaining why he should cut Obama slack, seems to realize the potential snare and throws in one line about "but you have to criticize him because you're a journalist", but as a viewer I'm still left with the stench of knowing that any criticism has been muted because of the president's skin color. That is exactly why affirmative action is such a horrible idea and is in fact denigrating to those who are supposed to be its beneficiaries.
I'm reminded of a line from the movie Stand and Deliver, a line which I'll paraphrase here:
"There are two types of racism Mr. Escalante--singling out a group of people because they are members of a minority, and not singling out a group of people because they are members of a minority."Mr. Lemon advocates practicing the latter.
