Thursday evening, during the CNN transition between anchors Lemon and Cuomo, Don Lemon scolded critics of the teaching of “Critical Race Theory” in schools, telling them “stop making it about you.”
“You don’t think that telling them people were beaten and sold and lynched makes them feel bad?” Lemon asked, while laughing.
“Having people come to the realization, especially ancestors of slaves, that they were enslaved and that they were beaten and they were sold and they weren’t able to accrue wealth, they weren’t able to go to school, they weren’t able to go vote — you think that makes them feel good?” he asked. “So the folks on the other side, stop making it about you, and be curious instead of judgmental.”
