Don Lemon: "Don't Call Me Racist For Covering Trayvon Martin"
Good Point--Excellent Point, Mr. Donald Lemon, while it is true that there are a few African-Americans with a 'chip on their shoulders' more often than not this is a false accusation to keep African-Americans from fighting for their rights.
