On November 5th, 2013 speaking during his regular slot on the Tom Joyner show, Lemon said that police were not always very respectful of the people they stopped, but that tampering with the “formula that has reduced crime in New York City” could be very dangerous. “The question is, would you rather be politically correct or safe and alive?” he concluded.
Over the summer Lemon made an equally controversial comment. In the wake of the acquittal of George Zimmerman, the CNN news anchor found it necessary to blame the dress style of young black males as well as other personal choices as a reason for the injustices they suffer in the United States.
In an encore presentation of her CBS show The Talk that aired Aug. 30, Underwood railed against “nappy” “Afro” hair during a discussion about Project Runway host Heidi Klum saving her children’s hair after it had been cut. Klum and her former husband, black British singer Seal, have children with “huge Afros,”according to Underwood.
Upon hearing that Klum saves their hair, Underwood responded, “Why would you save Afro hair?” She went on to imply that no one wants to save black people’s hair, adding that you never hear of a woman in a beauty shop asking for that “curly, nappy, beady” hair.
In contrast, Underwood praised her white co-host for saving her child’s hair because it was probably “some beautiful, long silky stuff.”
Actor-comedian Bill Cosby’s consistent effort to heap blame on poverty-stricken African-Americans for their plight without giving equal acknowledgment to the role of institutional racism, would likely qualify him as an Uncle Tom

When celebrity chef Paula Deen was sued for racial discrimination from a former employee, all her racist skeletons came falling out. According to the employee, Lisa Jackson, Deen had “patterns of disrespect and degradation of people that she deems to be inferior.”
A deposition revealed that Deen was eager to plan a “true Southern plantation-style wedding” for her brother Bubba, which would include “a bunch of little n—-rs to wear long-sleeve white shirts, black shorts, and black bow-ties.”
Actress Dash stood above the throng of people who criticized Deen, offering her some comfort on Twitter: “God does everything for a reason @Paula_Deen Only God can judge your heart BTW my daughter loves your show (only way she can get me to cook).”
Our only explanation? Tom made her do it.
In the wake of the Zimmerman acquittal of the fatal shooting of teenager Trayvon Martin, Ben Carson was asked on Fox News Sunday if racial profiling is really the threat to young black men. “I don’t think it is,” the retired neurosurgeon answered.
In June 2013, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas helped dismantle a key provision of the Voting Rights Act, one of the pillars of the civil rights movement. He has also made it clear that if he had his way, he would bury another bastion: affirmative action.
