CNN host Don Lemon destroyed both the United States and the American people in a new interview. He even went so far as to say that Americans do not see blacks as human beings, adding that the US "needs to understand how racist it is".
In an interview with Washington Post Magazine, Lemon was asked, “You suggested that Trump is the president we deserve and probably a necessary and insightful wake-up call. Do you still believe that? "
“Given the apathy of people about getting involved in the political process, paying attention to the political process, going to the polls, their willingness to pay so much attention to celebrities, I think I was talking about 'the president we deserve 'meant. "Lemon answered.
“But there is also this false reality that after the election of Barack Obama we will live in a post-racial world. That was all cops, ”he continued. "It was a wake-up call for whites who thought we lived in a non-racist world."
“As blacks and whites, we live in two different realities,” said Lemon. “As blacks, we knew what was lurking beneath the surface. I still believe [Trump] was the necessary wake up for America to see how racist it is. "

The interviewer then asked Lemon about his new book and said, “This book seems to be part of an ongoing process of exposing yourself – gradually revealing more personal things about yourself. Is that something you wanted or something that you felt you had to do? "
“I feel like I had to do this because I believe America hasn't seen enough people like me. I don't think America knows enough people like me, ”Lemon replied. "I would love it if America saw black people, especially black gay men, as – and I hate that word – as normal and as people and as part of the culture."

"I don't know if America sees black people, and black gay men in particular, as perfectly human and deserves the American dream," he added.

For someone who claims to have grown up in such a racist and terrible country, Lemon has achieved quite a lot as a black person. Although he said that “we, blacks and whites, live in two different realities,” the Daily Mail emphasized, “He lives in a $ 4.3 million four-bedroom cottage in Sag Harbor on New York's Long Island, where 80% of the population is white and only 3% are black. "
Lemon also reportedly earns an annual salary of $ 4 million on CNN and has a net worth of $ 12 million.
