CNN host Don Lemon claimed last night that one of his producers said that a member of the Missouri National Guard used the N-word to describe protesters in Ferguson, Mo.
According to Mediaite.com, Lemon was hosting a town hall entitled “Black and White in America” about the racial problems in Ferguson and the rest of the country (video below).
Kevin Jackson, of the Black Sphere, suggested placing body cameras on all police officers so that they would think twice before overreacting in a situation, noted RawStory.com.
Lemon added that body cameras might make some people think twice about becoming cops, which would be a good thing.
“Last night, one of my producers said that they, I won’t say if it’s a he or a she because I don’t want to give anyone a way, said that they came in contact with one of the members of the National Guard," stated Lemon. "And that they said was, ‘You want to get out of here because you’re white. Because these n-words, you know, you never know what they’re going to do.’”
“True story. I kid you not, 2014, a member of the National Guard, and my producer doesn’t lie," added Lemon.
