CNN activist and host Don Lemon unloaded on parents who oppose the teaching of Critical Race Theory, demanding they need to stop “making it about you” when it comes to what their children are learning.
Lemon, of course, does not have any children — just big ideas about what should be taught to yours.
“That’s the whole thing about white privilege,” said Lemon during his nightly show handoff to Chris Cuomo. “People don’t like to have their pleasure interrupted, their peace interrupted. And so, people think that it should be the way it should be because they have been taught that in this country.”
“But, you know,” he continued, “telling people, having people come to the realization, especially ancestors [descendants] of slaves, that they were enslaved, and that they were beaten and they were sold, that they weren’t able to accrue wealth, they weren’t able to go to school, weren’t able to go vote … you think that makes them feel good?”

“So, the folks on the other side, stop making it about you. Be curious instead of judgmental, that’s all,” Lemon added.
Parents across the nation have been revolting against the divisive Marxist teachings being inserted into public schools, which seek to demonize white people — particularly white men and boys.
