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.

Mike is a Southern California transplant. Although his latest Arizona stint started in 2006, Mike is a proud graduate of Glendale's Apollo High School. Higher education? He stopped counting after 5 colleges. After 15 years of real estate and corporate life, Mike had a crazy idea to give talk radio a try. A short 2.5 years of cutting his teeth on the AM dial, he received the call from KTAR. Mike is now the host of Get Outdoors with Mike Russell, co-host of Mike & Winey on Saturdays and co-host of The Think Tank on Sundays. Mike's special features, The Outdoor Minute and the KTAR Timeline, can be heard daily on both Arizona's Morning News and Arizona's Noon News. Mike hurries home each night to his amazing wife of 11 years, Jodi, and their two children Jillian (9) and John (6). His 95 pound puppy, Champ, is always there to greet him as well. Daydreams of fishing, hunting, and camping keep Mike motivated throughout the day. When he can't hit the lake or get out on a hunt, Mike finds his "Zen" through his passion for family time and gourmet grilling.
