CNN anchor Don Lemon is right, again

TV news anchor Don Lemon of CNN is becoming the face of a movement. Not because he is black but because he is right.

Lemon recently itemized five actions that the black community could take to begin the process of ending harmful stereotypes.

Media and clothing mogul Russell Simmons took Lemon to task via a strongly worded letter. Simmons would not address his concerns live on air with Lemon for one reason and one reason alone -- he was wrong.

Lemon respectfully took to the airwaves to openly respond to Simmons' claims.

Read the letter, see the response. You be the judge.

About the Author

Mike Russell is KTAR's resident outdoorsman. His passion for the outdoors is the engine behind KTAR's hit show Get Outdoors with Mike Russell. Get Outdoors focuses on the world of hunting, fishing, camping and conservation. Mike's special features, The Outdoor Minute and the KTAR Timeline, can be heard each weekday on two of Arizona's highest rated shows, Arizona's Morning News and Arizona's Evening News. Mike hurries home each night to his amazing wife of 11 years, Jodi, and their two children Jillian (9) and John (7). His 95 pound puppy, Champ, is always there to greet him as well. The thought of loading up the truck for some fishing, hunting and camping keeps Mike motivated throughout the week. When he can't hit the lake or get out on a hunt, well, let's just say that none of us want to see that.
