It should come as no surprise that CNN weekend anchor Don Lemon is catching shade for agreeing with Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly‘s anti-black community comments. In fact, Lemon went a step further and said O’Reilly didn’t go far enough.

Black folks took to Twitter and other social media to let Lemon know his remarks were not appreciated. Among them is MSNBC contributor/analyst Goldie Taylor. Here’s what she said:

Just saw Fruitvale Station. Heard Lemon remarks. There is nothing I can say. Yet. I just have to wonder. Exactly which America does he live in?

But if I had a dollar for every turn coat mofo who made it up and out, then cut the rope ladder behind him…

…they get to thinking that good money, good suits and good manners will make them see you differently…

I’ll tell you what though. If you step to the plate, your behind better be ready to take a pitch…

Here’s a taste of what Lemon detractors at large are saying:

Trudy: Wow. I guess Don Lemon making career moves. Career moves while Black = throw other Black ppl under the bus. Smh.

Magnus Bane: Don Lemon feels that he’s THE exception. That’s perfectly fine. He’ll see eventually how he’s viewed by his white counterparts.

Alejandro NIGlesias: If you follow Don Lemon‘s 5-step anti-Hip-Hop plan racism magically ends?

Anthea Butler: I was tired of @donlemoncnn when he was tweeting those wack prosperity sermons every sunday. Not surprised by this.

Valérie: Next racial draft we’re giving @DonLemonCNN to the whites. I don’t even wanna trade him for anyone. Just give him away

Sunja Montice: @DonLemonCNN must be real THIRSTY for him to try to speak for all AA’s and throw our black men under the bus. Are his ratings that bad?

And not surprisingly, Lemon has found fans on the right, like Newsbusters’ Noel Sheppard:

“I wish Obama would have been as honest with his race speech as @DonLemonCNN was!”

As Mediaite points pout, Lemon isn’t getting a lot of love for his “tough love” point of view, but there are some:

Michael Skolnick: tremendous about of respect for @DonLemonCNN but his “tough love” approach for black America forgets that some yng people don’t have “boots”

Brendon310: I think we need tough love I have to agree with @DonLemonCNN that its time to teach kids the right things to do.Thanks sir!

Ebong Eka: I’m baffled by the visceral reaction @DonLemonCNN is receiving for stating obvious problems in the community. People who own it, can fix it!

Buddy Love: Okay…I just saw what Don Lemon said…I don’t get why people are so offended?

    Bill O’Reilly has the nerve to spew out lies about his knowledge how to fix black people! A immoral sexual pervert that harass a female co-worker!ARE YOU SERIOUS???? A man that said that he didn’t think blacks knew how to use folk and knifes. This race batter that does not miss an opportunity to spew hate and divide! ARE YOU SERIOUS???? He is able to do that because he “WILL NOT” get anyone on his show to truly debate him! For Bill O’ Reilly to rant on and on as if he a authority of black life is insulting and totally arrogant! If all these white people like O’Reilly are so knowledgeable on how to prevent crime in black neighborhoods and educate black student and prevent unwed mothers from having children with dead beat fathers! Gang problem in black community! Address and fix black on black crime 94% etc….

    Then tell American how Bill O’Reilly prevent white on white crime 92% and the fact that white female between 13 to35 have the highest abortion rate in America! 59% of white homes are headed by a single parent! What about white deadbeat dads BILLY!!??? The serial killer problem in the white community or incest in white homes bank robberies for which white male rank number one! White female teacher raping white males or the male white teacher raping both white males and females students! WHERE ARE YOU ON THAT WHITE EVIL???? White Catholic Priest raped more white boys and the boy scouts white molestation problem is widely known! WHERE IS BILL O”REILLY!!Then the drug problem in America white use drugs greater then all American be it prescription drugs illegally or illegal drug. Yet white are arrested less! HOW DID YOU FIX THAT BILLY!!!!!???

    So Bill O’Reilly you are DEAD wrong about blacks and drug sentencing!!! It is because of low life racist whites in authority. That use their position to racially sentence blacks and allow their white race to go home! So Bill O’Reilly before you attempt to discipline and instruct and correct black people START WITH THE EXAMPLE OF HOW YOU FIX YOUR WHITE RACE!!! Then it’s white wives and girlfriends that have the highest rates of death by the hands of their white boyfriends! WHERE IS BILLY ON THAT EVIL!!!???

    The number of white American “patriot” extremist groups “AKA (WHITE GANG) has reached a record level, according to a new study, and experts are warning of a wave of anti-government violence! A report released by the Southern Poverty Law Center counted 1,360 “patriot” extremist groups in 2012 — up by 7% from 2011. The study defines white patriot groups as anti-government militias driven by their fear that authorities will strip them of their guns and liberties. WHERE THE HELL IS BILL ADDRESSING AND OR CONDEMNING THESE GROUPS???
    During the G.W. Bush administration the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote to Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld asking him to investigate the extent to which white supremacist had infiltrated the U.S. military and urging him to adopt a zero-tolerance policy on racist extremists. Where the hell was Bill O’Reilly and the white people that want to fix black people???

    Bottom line I as a black man acknowledge problems in the black community! As a American I also acknowledge the problem in white community! White people like the race hustlers Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly are part of the problem with “NO” solution to white or black problem. These racist men have a agenda of hate and dividing the country! Don’t be fooled by their false concern!! Greta of Fox News even got in the argument stating white people want to help the poor ignorant stupid immoral black criminal people…But white people are afraid she said….Again to Greta FIX THE WHITE RACE FIRST!!!

      Jhuff, it appears, you’re the one without education. People in glass houses, shouldn’t throw stones, and you’re throwing a lot of them . Maybe you should take a mini English refresher course on everything (grammar, sentence structure, homonyms, etc.), before you try to throw shade on someone else’s party. Let me correct your errors from your post. You’ll see corrections in parenthesis:

      You shouldn’t post again until you get a passing grade in english.

  3. 72% is an alarming number whether you agree with Don/Bill or not. 42% Latino’s, 25% Whites, 16% Asians.

    WE are in trouble !!

    They do.

  5. oH and by the way, F^CK Bill O’Reilly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I cannot stand that B!TCH!!!!!! Just another scared ass white man yearning for the days of yesteryear when these blacks knew their places….

  6. Based on what he said on “The View” today, he did not sound like he was co-signing for Bill. He made sense, however, I think his timing was suspect. Why is it that the black people in the “spotlight” only seem to speak up and out AFTER they seem to receive some sort of validation and/or permission. Why does it always seem to be these southern homegrown black people that come out to publicly chastise black america for their wrongdoings? Why is it that there has to be any TALK at all? I would be the first to admit that there are some appalling conditions in black america today, but if I make a decision to try to improve the situation, I DO IT and not talk about IT or try to bring attention to the ACTIONS that I am taking to empower and bring about the change that I think is needed
