Herschel Walker, football legend and running back for the 1980 national champion Georgia Bulldogs, said that Don Lemon should be fired from CNN for his panel denouncing Kanye West in completely racist terminology.
The CNN panel’s characterization of Kanye West as a “token Negro” is particularly foul, considering West’s record of musical, business, and philanthropic achievement.
Herschel Walker said that Lemon should be taken “off the air.”
CNN’s Don Lemon ratcheted up the filth on his typically-awful and lowly rated show Tuesday night, hosting racist guests to bash Kanye West.
“Kanye West is what happens when negroes don’t read,” said Bakari Sellers of the completely unheard-of “Viewpoint with Bakari” podcast on Lemon’s show.
Lemon choked back laughter and let Sellers continue.
“And we have this now, and now Donald Trump is going to use it and pervert it, and he’s going to have someone who can stand with him and take pictures,” Sellers said eloquently.
Feeding off of Sellers’ obvious hatred for black Trump supporters, CNN political commentator Tara Satmeyer followed up on Sellers’ point.
“Listen, black folks are about to trade Kanye West in the racist draft, okay? They’ve had it with him and he’s an attention whore just like the president. He’s all of a sudden now the model spokesperson, the token negro of the Trump administration. This is ridiculous, and no one should be taking Kanye West seriously. He clearly has issues,” she said.
Imagine the outrage if a white person said any of this about any black person? Just another day at CNN. And remember – there is absolutely no bias whatsoever at this “news” network.
City of Denver Unanimously Votes to Rename Columbus Park “La Raza Park”
There might come a time when nothing in the US is named after Christopher Columbus.
The Denver City Council unanimously voted to rename Columbus Park last week Monday, and now it will be named “La Raza Park.”
“La raza” is Spanish for “the race,” which has connotations with Latino identity politics. A Denver Post article tells us that the phrase “viva la raza” (long live the race) was the “rallying cry of the Chicano movement in the 1960s and ’70s.” The Chicano Movement encouraged Mexican ethnic and cultural solidarity with a particular emphasis on their indigenous heritage. The movement, however, rejected assimilation and thus the term “Mexican-American,” essentially branding themselves as the Hispanic version of the Black Power movement.
Councilwoman Amanda Sandoval claims that the unanimous vote was an act of officially naming a park that has “always” been unofficially called by its new name. “La raza is a word of unity and about celebrating community,” she said without a hint of irony.
The reason for officially renaming the park is about what you’d expect, namely because Christopher Columbus is irredeemably associated with colonialism and genocide and is thus not fit to be honored in any way, shape, or form.
Arturo Gonzalez, a retired professor, said that “Mexican Chicanos and Indigenous peoples have suffered genocide over the last 500 years. We live with that trauma. We continue to live with that trauma.”
Renaming parks, buildings, and schools that were previously named after so-called “problematic” or “white supremacist” historical figures is nothing new, of course, but the practice has accelerated over the past several months due to the hysteria following the George Floyd riots.
Big League Politics has covered many instances of this phenomenon. One of the most recent instances included a San Francisco school district renaming Abraham Lincoln High School because black lives apparently “didn’t matter” to him:
