CNN anchor Don Lemon appeared on "The View" today to address controversial comments he made about Black America in the wake of the Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin trial.  Watch his response to those who have an issue inside and find out about ABC possibly pursuing Hoda Kotb for a co-host spot on "The View".



CNN anchor Don Lemon appeared on "The View" this morning to address and defend controversial comments he made on his CNN show.  His "Talking Points" about pulling up you pants, using the "n" word, finishing school and being an involved parent had many people feeling some kind of way.  He also said Bill O'Reilly (who blamed certain rappers and other foolishness for all the problems in the black community) didn't go far ENOUGH with his critique.  See what he said above....

Prior to his appearance, he also tweeted several statements to defend his talking points.

The streets are talking.....and they're saying that Barbara Walters and the folks at "The View" want Hoda Kotb to add some "diversity" to their panel, according to the NY Post.  Hoda, who has a news background which could add a good quality back into the show that it's been lacking since Meredith Viera left, is Egyptian and the panel does have two African American women on it currently with Whoopi Goldberg & Sherri Shepherd.

A media insider explained Hoda's appeal to Page Six saying,

“Hoda addresses several of their needs. She has news experience, which is something ‘The View’ has not had since Meredith Vieira left. She also adds some diversity to the panel.”

Of course the news prompted a denial from Hoda's camp, who said,

“Hoda loves her job at ‘Today’ and she’s very happy laughing and scratching with Kathie Lee every day.”

But you know...once the streets start talking....an offer has been made.  We will indeed be here for this if it happens.  Loves some Hoda.

He's right no man should walk

He's right no man should walk around outside with his underwear showing that is nasty.

If you can't feel what Don is

If you can't feel what Don is saying, you're just as ignorant as the people he's talking to/about... We've got to do better folks!

The problem isn't what he

The problem isn't what he said. The problem is that he agreed with a known racist, Bill O'Reilly. White folks, such as Bill O'Reilly are using the black-on-black crime rate to deflect from discussing the race issue ignited by the Trayvon Martin murder. Do we need to do better as a community? YES, but it's NOT for Bill O'Reilly to make that a point. For Don Lemon to agree with him only added to the agenda of what racist white folks want anyway: to deflect from them and to further highlight the negatives in the black community. I will also add this: Bill O'Reilly and his kind have nothing to say to the black community, especially since they have skeletons in their own community (i.e. mass murderers such as Eric Harris, Dennis Klebold, Adam Lanza, and James Holmes). THEY'RE the ones who need to do better.

why is he commenting on these

why is he commenting on these matters and not Gay and Lesbian matters. That is his arena about Same Love. But one thing is for sure, Niggers will always destroy Niggers. white people don't have nothing to do but sit back and watch. That part is true

OK, Don Lemon now you see

OK, Don Lemon now you see what DAMAGE your comments have made. It is ok to say SOME of the things you said but I bet he did not think he was going to be on FAUX NEWS as agreeing with their views. We rarely see other ethnic groups go after each other.

Don is right, but I don't

Don is right, but I don't like him. Where the hell is TJ Holmes?

I don't think that Don

I don't think that Don Lemon's comments were wrong at all.....what so nice about those damn pulled down pants anyways?? and he is right about education and behave properly. Education is our weapon against those ignorant white people. What is wrong about being smart? We have to admit that there is a lot of work to do in our community. Why don't we see this type of issues with asian communities? or jewish? because unlike them, we don't help out each other. As for the N word...it needs to stop because nothing is positive about it... and yes people have died over this word. Why trying to make it look so cool? Now we have white people that think it is alright for them to use this offensive word...

Its more about Don agreeing

Its more about Don agreeing with Bill O'Reilly. They are lovin Don's comments over there at Faux News, they keep replaying his comments. Its red meat for them. Everyday O'Reilly at the beginning of his show, slams black people. If you listen to him, no black woman alive has ever been married and we're all baby mama's. He thinks blacks are animals, don't know how to use spoons, knives and forks. To Bill O'Reilly blacks commit all the crimes and we're the only race that use government services, but I digress, SMH
