I am no longer confident in his ability as a Black journalist, he is no longer an inspiration for Black journalists who are working just as hard as he did. Mr. Lemon should know better; he is one of the few African-Americans in that field and yet he is adding fuel to the constant fire that we are working tirelessly to extinguish.
While many people have expressed outrage and sympathy for the victims, they've been criticized for not mentioning the bombings just a day before in Beirut. It's grief shaming, plain and simple.
I am not much of a couch potato, not only because my wife won't let me eat potatoes on the couch while watching TV, but because I prefer to drink beer in the lounge chair.
What do you think would happen if you spent a whole year saying yes to opportunities that came your way? What if you said yes to things that worked for you and not against you?

Everyday, we unknowingly feed the slave labor machine in our consumption of goods for which it is impossible to distinguish between those tainted by and free of slave labor.
This is Wolf Blitzer in the Situation Room. And we have BREAKING NEWS. Three more Republican congressmen have said the Benghazi investigation is a sham created just to bring down Hillary Clinton. Live with reaction is Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee.
Why would CNN be so quick to declare Hillary Clinton the winner of Tuesday's Democratic debate, when the majority of online polls crowned Bernie Sanders?
The fact is, part of the job of president is working and playing well with others be they conservative Democrats, country club Republicans, Tea Party wing nuts, progressives or global leaders like Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping.
