Don Lemon: White Men Denying Systemic Racism Is Essence Of White Entitlement, That Is "Whitemansplaining"

|

Don Lemon delivered a monologue on white supremacy and white entitlement on the Wednesday edition of his CNN program. Lemon said black people do not need the "permission" of white people to know that systemic racism exists and to do so is "whitemansplaning."

"Listen, I'm just going to say it," Lemon told viewers. "I'm just going to say this stuff from now on and I'm not going to like kowtow to you know, people that say black folks, white folks, whatever and whisper 'white people, black people.' We don't have to whisper anymore, I'm just going to say it."


"White men denying the existence of systemic racism, that is the essence of white entitlement," Lemon declared. "We do not need their permission or their sign off on what we know to be true and what we have lived. That is whitemansplaning. How can you solve this problem? The systemic racism that is killing people of color if you won't even admit there's a problem? First step is admitting there's a problem. America knows which way the wind is blowing."
