Don Lemon has never been one of our favorite black men.
And that’s putting it mildly.
After a while, it stopped surprising us that his perspective on some of the issues that plague the black community always came out of left field. The man just had a knack for rubbing black folk the wrong way.
Please holla if you feel me.
But a recent encounter and some pretty cool “upgrades” seem to be somewhat encouraging for the man we love to h*te…uh, disagree with.
For example, Lemon expected the worst when he was recognized by a viewer in Harlem recently; but lo and behold, what he thought had the potential of a beat-down, was actually quite a compliment.
“I don’t always agree with you,” the person began, ominously. “But keep it up. I’m not always supposed to agree with you.”
Lemon could think of no sweeter compliment.
