This is going to be a little awkward for some.

Having recently gone to battle with Terry Crews over the semantic difference between the “Black Lives Matter” movement (which appears not to care about ‘some’ black lives) and Crews’ argument that “all black lives matter”, video from 2013 has exposed CNN’s infamously outspoken African American anchor Don Lemon as a thoughtful, pensive, open-minded pundit who truly went out on a limb to help America’s black communities lift themselves up… by agreeing with none other than Fox’s Bill O’Reilly.

DON LEMON, CNN ANCHOR: I want to talk to you because we’re going to take a break from the headlines to talk about something I’ve had on my mind for quite some time now. So much so that I felt compelled to bring back our segment where we hold politicians, leaders, and pundits accountable for what comes out of their mouths. It’s time now, again, for No Talking Points.

The Trayvon Martin murder case got just about everybody talking about race, and not just specifically how it related to the case. It got some, many on the political right, wondering why the so-called liberal media wasn’t talking about other problems in the black community.

Ok, so far so good, but it sounds like Lemon is about to rail on the ‘rightist’ racism… But wait…

LEMON: Someone on another network got the chance to go first because I couldn’t go during the week. I’m only here on the weekend, so listen to this

BILL O’REILLY, FOX NEWS HOST: The reason there is so much violence and chaos in the black precincts is the disintegration of the African- American family.

LEMON: He’s got a point. In fact, he’s got more than a point. Bill?

O’REILLY: Raised without much structure, young black men often reject education and gravitate towards the street culture, drugs, hustling, gangs. Nobody forces them to do that, again, it is a personal decision.

LEMON: He is right about that, too.

Ok, now remove all fluids from your mouth and put down all sharp objects, things are about to get very real and very Twilight Zone at the same time. CNN’s Don Lemon then offers black people five things they should think about doing if they want to, in his words “fix their problem.” (annotated below, see the full transcript here)

Number five. Pull up your pants

Sagging pants, whether Justin Bieber or No-name Derek around the way, walking around with your ass and your underwear showing is not OK.

Number four is the n-word

By promoting the use of that word when it’s not germane to the conversation, have you ever considered that you may be just perpetuating the stereotype the master intended acting like a n***er?

Number three. Respect where you live

Start small by not dropping trash, littering in your own communities.

Number two, finish school…

You want to break the cycle of poverty? Stop telling kids they’re acting white because they go to school or they speak proper English.

Number one, and probably the most important, just because you can have a baby, it doesn’t mean you should

Studies show that lack of a male role model is an express train right to prison and the cycle continues.

Lemon concludes:

“So, please, black folks, as I said if this doesn’t apply to you, I’m not talking to you. Pay attention to and think about what has been presented in recent history as acceptable behavior. Pay close attention to the hip-hop and rap culture that many of you embrace. A culture that glorifies everything I just mentioned, thug and reprehensible behavior, a culture that is making a lot of people rich, just not you.”

Watch the full clip below (before it is banned for its clear racism):

We wonder what would happen if President Trump held a press conference and suggested these five steps as a starting point for “Making Black America Great Again”? We suspect Lemon would be the first to exclaim “racism” at the President’s “white supremacist” attitude, daring to offer an opinion on what might help.

What a difference seven years (and a different president) makes.

Two types of people reject socialism:

  1. Capitalists, as they are the greed-driven types who have a sadistic desire to hoard wealth by enriching themselves upon the misery of those who have less education, less wealth or less whiteness of skin.
  2. The very few who realize that forced socialism makes ingrates out of the poor, makes slaves out of tax payers, and makes it impossible to have a moral fabric in society. For having compassion and giving charity in a way that best produces equality and a grateful response, this is what happiness is all about.

The more educated upper-half of America hoards all the land, wealth, healthcare, political power, 98% of guns, and use killer-cops to terrorize the 50% working-poor into submission.

Now you know why mainstream media always accuse young laboring men of victimizing themselves.

Seems sensible advice, which is propably why it will not be acted on.

Hence the rationale for the #SYSBM movement which is encouraged by enlightened black males personalities like Mad Bus Driver.

By removing ourselves from the toxic mainstream Western black feminist mentality, #SYSBM males avoid a ton of stress by uprooting themselves & traveling to greener pastures where they are appreciated.

Interesting times for America’s toxic black feminazis. That’s the main reason I came to Africa. Lots of cute petite feminine respectful black women with real hair.

#SYSBM = Save Yourself Black Man

Miracles never cease. A slobbering, radical partisan hack actually saying something non-partisan and…conservative. I’ll get the popcorn and see where this prophecy takes us.

The BIG problem for blacks, as indeed for whites, is the ruling political class which made possible first slavery and then Jim Crow. After armed rebellion forced an end to Jim Crow the ruling class shifted gears. They deployed their War on Work project against Blacks, their ‘Great Society’ giveaways which disincentivized productive work. This turned once productive Blacks into the unemployed. Then the political class deployed their War on Drugs in order to turn unemployed Blacks into dangerous delinquents. Just as the neocons want an external enemy – for the moment the designated one being Russia – so they… Read more »

But it also shows a lack of intelligence within the black community to NOT SEE the War on Drugs trap and adapt. Heck, Russians buckled down & started to domestically produce more goods due to treacherous sanctions. And now they are more self-sufficient. What did blacks do? Instead, their own thug degenerates pushed crack cocaine onto their own people after the CIA dumped it into the inner cities. Furthermore, black women have allowed themselves to be used by the white FemiNazi movement along with the Welfare Queen mentality which has created massive destabilization in the black community. Now ALL American… Read more »
