CNN anchor Don Lemon is right, again

TV news anchor Don Lemon of CNN is becoming the face of a movement. Not because he is black but because he is right.

Lemon recently itemized five actions that the black community could take to begin the process of ending harmful stereotypes.

Media and clothing mogul Russell Simmons took Lemon to task via a strongly worded letter. Simmons would not address his concerns live on air with Lemon for one reason and one reason alone — he was wrong.

Lemon respectfully took to the airwaves to openly respond to Simmons’ claims.

Read the letter, see the response. You be the judge.
