Don Lemon: How Can You Not Be Racist If You Grew Up In America?

Don Lemon once again takes the opportunity to stereotype all Americans.


Colorblind Don Lemon is back at it again.

Our friends at Fox News were kind enough to report Lemon’s newest generalization of White Americans:

CNN anchor Don Lemon mused Friday whether it’s possible for people raised in America to not be racist, or at least have “blindspots” — likening U.S. citizens to flowers planted in tainted soil.

  “Every year, I have hydrangeas in my yard and they come back a different color, or a tulip or an orchid. And it’s not because they’re different, it’s because the soil is different, right?” Lemon said on “New Day.”

“It depends on the nutrients in the soil. So if you grew up in America, you came out of American soil. Considering the history of this country … how can you not be racist? How can you not have racial blindspots, how can you not see that the factory reset in America is whiteness?

Listen, white people are so scared right now to do anything, to talk about anything, to broach these conversations. They’re sort of frozen because who wants to be called a racist, right? Who wants people to think that they have a racial blindspot?” 


So Lemon’s hydrangeas come out different every year because his soil changes. 

And America, a country constantly changing and being shaped by the world, is our soil. 

But in America, all white people come out the same (racists) because the soil.

But his flowers can transform into entirely different plants because…THE SOIL??
