Don Lemon: If You Don’t Want Justin Bieber Using N-Word, Shouldn’t You Do The Same?

DonLemonIn a blog post for BlackAmericaWeb.com, Don Lemon responds to two videos that showed pop-star Justin Bieber using the N-Word.

Some are saying Bieber is racist. Is he? I don’t know. But I do know that this is the danger of the proliferation of the use of the n-word. Clearly Justin Bieber, a young man who by the way, has immersed himself in black, Hip Hop culture should not be saying the n-word. So the question is, if you want people like Justin Bieber to stop using it and to stop making excuses for using it, shouldn’t you do the same?

Last summer, Lemon anchored a special for CNN, “The N-Word,” which examined Paula Deen using the word and the race issue surrounding the George Zimmerman trial.
