Conversation Between a Black Man & a White Man About Racial Profiling

This exchange took place on CNN between CNN anchor Don Lemon, who is black, and conservative commentator Ben Ferguson, who is white.

The Raw Story (online news) titled their article about the video, “CNN’s Don Lemon schools white conservative: ‘Your privilege does not allow you to see… certain circumstances in society.’

I applaud The Raw Story for posting this frank, and at times heated, exchange. This is an issue than many feel uncomfortable talking about, but it is absolutely worth talking about. I hope you watch it.

  1. I watched the video and Don had a valid point racial profiling does exist especially in the examples he gave. But it is not only against black men,it exist to a certain extent to all races that are non white. The police use it and the NTSAB every time you get on a airplane.
