Don Lemon: National Guard Soldier Used N-Word In Ferguson (VIDEO)

(AllHipHop News) Racism still alive and they aren’t even concealing it. During a segment on CNN last night (August 19th), journalist Don Lemon shared a story from one of the show’s producer about a soldier of the national guard using a racist epitaphs in Ferguson, M.O.

In less than a week since Michael Brown’s controversial killing last Saturday (August 16th) and the subsequent demonstrations, Ferguson, M.O. has experienced an influx of National Guard officers as well as local law enforcement. Lemon recounted a story from one of his producers about racist remarks made by one of those National Guard soldiers:

I’m just going to be honest with you. Last night, one of my producers said that they — I won’t say if it’s a he or she, because I don’t want to give anyone away — said they came in contact with one of the members of the National Guard and that they said, ‘You want to get out of here because you’re white, because these n-words, 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. It is a true story.

Days earlier, Lemon was forcibly moved by a Ferguson police officer during a live broadcast on CNN. During the broadcast, in which Lemon is amongst many protestors, he explains how even the right to peaceful protest is being compromised by the police:

You see why people are so upset here. We’ve been here all day, they moved us here and told us this is our location. They’re doing the same thing to the people. We’re on national television, so imagine what they’re doing to people who you don’t see on national TV. Who don’t have a voice like we do.

    MY NIGGA!

    • STFUUIgnants

      The fact that you got these fools who become so “shocked” when they find out this “post-racial America” is a joke surprises the sh!t out of me.

        THATS WHAT IM SAYING.. THESE NIGGAS ARE A BUNCH OF FUCKKING COONS. THEY STAY SUCKING ON THE WHITEMANS BALLZ. AND THE WHITEMAN HATES THEM..(WELL BLACKS KILL EACH OTHER ALL THE TIME)= BITCH SHUT THE FUKK UP.. I NEVER KILLED ANYBODY…

  • RichFromBX

    why was the race of the solider that allegedly said this omitted? could it be that a black national guard solider said it but by noting that in the story it would lose it’s power?

    everyone just assumes the solider was white and will get all angry and pissed off which is exactly what they want…

    • Guest

      gjoough guunh.

    • chicagostyl

      i imagine if the person was black then Don Lemon wouldnt have reported it because his producer would have added that info in there.

      • RichFromBX

        which makes the bigger call out that the solider was white or black? don’t you think if the solider was white it would’ve been a bigger story to say that a white national guard solider call the protesters n!ggers – why leave that out unless the solider wasn’t wasn’t white…

    • Tanman1

      Do u need everything spelled out for you? Based on context the soldier was obviously white

      • RichFromBX

        why was he obviously white? educate yourself on the media then we can talk…

      • ced taylor

        educate YOURSELF on human nature..then we can talk

      • RichFromBX

        that doesn’t even make sense – being racist isn’t a part of a human’s nature, it’s a learned behavior.

    man, let white people use the N-word. I mean they did invent it

  • brotha_man

    I still serve in the military. there are gangs, racist, atheist… a whole lotta everybody makes up the US Military. I remember when they kicked a soldier out the army i was serving over in korea….had to go help box all his stuff up…..cat had Nazi flags, posters, books. army kicked his arse out…..in Washington state cats claiming gangs getting shot. its a two way street.

  • Markus

    Not even surprised by whatever happened with the National Guard. But African Americans must share in this disgrace because the fact that the culture refuses to disown and distance themselves from this slur. That doesn’t give racists the right to use it but it would be that much more powerful an issue if the entire world wasn’t aware of the adoption of the slur as a term of endearment.

    • ced taylor

      once again ppl missing the point

      • Markus

        How so? What’s the point in your opinion?

    • justmathoughts

      naa man…. them saying it with the hard R is way different…..even if we stopped today theyd still be saying it tomorrow…. my kid isnt allowed to stay up late, does that mean im not suppose to?

      • Markus

        The first thing racists do when it comes to that slur is say,”Black people say it, why can’t I”? or try to hide behind Amendment rights that were written by someone for everyone else. Be honest, are you really going to feel any better if a white person refers to you as a slur without the hard R at the end? Would it make that much of a difference? Or maybe the culture needs to follow in the footsteps of other cultures who didn’t acknowledge themselves as the racial epithets cast upon them by the racists of old. A white man created that slur to keep the culture down to wallow in wretchedness. And now it’s a term of endearment? The ancestors of those very racists out here today are roasting in Hell admiring their handiwork. And it’s a damn shame.

      • justmathoughts

        in my opinion, no matter how a white person uses the word its offensive…maybe the bedtime thing was a poor analogy but it suffices..,,, my point is, like you said, “a white man created that slur….” that man isnt going to stop just because i did….. i definitely hear you though, we just have different perspectives.. ill tell you one thing, if i see you in heaven im going to be like, “my ni99a!!”…. the irony makes it that much better

      • Andy

        “The first thing racists do when it comes to that slur is say,”Black people say it, why can’t I”?”.

        Then that’s a reflection of how mind numbingly stupid racists are. They don’t understand the nuance that words don’t have a universal meaning or connotation among everyone. MOST of the time when African Americans use it is a term of endearment. It’s not an insult. But when white racist use it the intent is to be extremely vicious and insulting. So I don’t think you can blame African Americans for continuing to use it, because it’s being used in a way that is completely different to how racists use it. The latter group using is the word is the real problem.
