Don Lemon’s commentary about Roseanne Barr: ‘This was not a bad joke … this was straight up racism’

CNN’s Don Lemon said this tonight about the cancellation of the ABC sitcom Roseanne following a racist tweet by star Roseanne Barr: ‘This is much bigger than Roseanne’s tweet. This is about the normalization of racism across this country. This is about people who now feel free to say exactly the kind of thing Roseanne said. We’ve all known for a long time just how Roseanne feels. … Today she showed us exactly who she is – again.” Keep watching and the attention shifts to racist comments made by Donald Trump and its impact on America. He asks: ‘What is America going to do about it?’ BONUS VIDEO: While Trump has called CNN ‘fake news,’ you have to wonder what he thinks of FOX News anchor Shepard Smith’s remarks today: “Racism is not funny and Roseanne Barr is a racist.”

    Richard V says:

    Don told it like it is. It has been increasing over the years to myself. People have been saying to my face the “N” word which I don’t even use, mostly while I’m at work where I’m told to not get into verbal battle with members. Yes once I told a member off for calling another member a Fagget… me tell that member to stop using that word as a weapon.
    A lot to address out there and given those opportunities take it to school someone.
