    If white pastor comes out to defend this white person, black people will say that he is a racist. White people can't do a rally or protest for these double standard, they will be roasted by black people as racists.

    Don Lemon, could you stop saying that black on black crime must stop. To me what you are saying is, let black people do crime against white, Hispanics or any other race.

    Why doesn't Al Sharpton come out against the killing of the white baseball player in Oklahoma?

    Mr. Don Lemon .....your compassion for truth , to me , is beyond reproach . Your reasoning is this case and I guess just the way you reason these situations concerning racial injustice ..... You keep my eyes open to a view that I inherently , still , don't always see correctly . Thank you for staying courageous and level headed when you could so easily lash out . Ironically , I just watched '42' the Jackie Robinson ( HBO ) story .... It is a hard hitting portrayal of how society was and where it still needs to go .

    This was a hate whitely crime! Where is the government prosecutor? Black on white crime is happening all over the country and the media is not covering it; Pick your target carefully to defend yourself is still a right in this country, inspite of lemon and his agenda. 18 year old just got only 10 years for killing a white 20 year old in the knock out game. I didn't hear Lemon talking about that! Double standard cam be beat do your own education via the internet and throw it back in their teeth.

    Just saw that CNN is doing a special on Clive Bundy and Sterling. Again painting all white people with the same broad brush as these two. Out of all the millions of white people in this country you again focus on only two who furthur your agendas. Why not just once do a show or shows on how white people died fighting for civil rights during civil war and continue fighting for civil rights for all. That give millions of dollars to charities that help minorities. You only chose to report when there is even a hint of racism against a black but if a white is called names, murdered, raped you either don't report it, under report it or make excuses. I don't hear any of you at CNN,HLN, speak up for white people. We don't like being painted with the same broad brush as you don't like being said 'you people'. Tired of the double standard you talk out of both sides of your mouths. Excuses are lame about a history of slavery etc and we don't know what it's like to be black you don't know what it's like to be white and have to hear this . Whites that have been murdered or raped by a black does that mean that for the rest of their lives and their family and friends can paint all black people as murderers and rapists because of the history of being raped and murdered by a black.

    BTW, Was it racists when Black Panthers came with billy clubs to voting precinct and imtimidated white people,or have stated that all white people with blue eyes should be dead,or Al Sharpton with his rantings against white people,or black commentators on your stations stating that white people were out to kill young black boys, etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc. If it's wrong for white people to use the n word and be villified for using it same should go for blacks. no excuses. If a white person dons a black face and is villified a black person donning a white face should be.etc etc etc etc. S

    Why is it okay to villify an entire family such as the Sterlings claiming he has to sell the team and family members aren't allowed to keep it? The family didn't do anything. Oh the logic is they had to know he was like this just like the mistress and the NAACP

    Is it not obvious by now that Don Lemon has no credibility. He has hijacked CNN for his own agenda and has demonstrated time and time again his inability to be a legitimate anchorman. His treatment of the MH370 and his line of questioning certainly demonstrated a lack of sophistication and his non-relenting approach to the Sterling story only magnifies his essence.

    Lemon should join Pierce and Rick Sanchez in my opinion.

    Don Lemon has two less viewers. Will not watch or listen to his stupid statements any longer. Send him where we do not have to listen to him anymore.
