    Black Leadership Group: CNN Must Put Own House In Order

    Black Leadership Group: CNN Must Put Own House In Order After Don Lemon Said White Men Are USs Biggest Terror Threat

    Project 21, a black leadership network, issued a statement Thursday calling on CNN President Jeff Zucker to address host Don Lemons inflammatory comments calling white men the biggest terror threat in America.

    The statement, from Project 21 co-chairs Stacy Washington, Horace Cooper, and Bishop Council Nedd II, reads:

    Within a space of five seconds, CNNs Don Lemon went from saying we shouldnt demonize people to broadly labeling white men as our nations biggest terror threat. Thats not responsible journalism. This cannot stand. CNN President Jeff Zucker recently called out the White House for its criticism of the media, saying President Trump doesnt comprehend the importance of the words he uses. Its time for Zucker to put his own house in order starting with explaining how Don Lemons outrageous statement can stand in light of Zuckers call for civility.

    Project 21 is a 25-year-old black leadership network sponsored by the National Center for Public Policy Research, a free-market, independent conservative think-tank.


    So we have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them, Lemon said on Monday during an appearance on Chris Cuomo Primetime.


    There is no travel ban on them. There is no ban on they had the Muslim ban, there is no white guy ban. What do we do about that? Lemon continued.

    What he said was factually correct. Any sense that he is broadly calling all white men terrorists is just silly and counter to the facts and his actual words.

    I suppose it's good evidence for the power of propaganda.
    "Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance."
    - Robert F. Kennedy (1925-1968), U.S. Senator from New York and U.S. Attorney General

    No, actually you are saying that. It's nice to know what is on your mind.

    Implying that he meant all white men is the talking point social cons need to have, it's no different than co opting the kaepernick protest and make it about denigrating the flag, veterans, and America.

    Just like saving 15% by switching to Geico, it's what they do.
