CNN anchor Don Lemon sounded off on Friday sharing his thoughts about the Derek Chauvin trial for George Floyd’s death.
Appearing on the CNN show ‘New Day’, Lemon claimed that Floyd’s death is ‘indicative’ of how black men in this country feel when they interact with the police. He also said that “George Floyd is us” and urged people to look past his problems.

Breitbart reports: It is indicative of what especially black men in this country feel and have felt for centuries; that someone is on their neck all the time, living in a paranoia about racism. … Especially if they get into an encounter with police officers, will that police officer see my humanity? That’s what everybody is feeling. And that’s why it’s so traumatic, as you say,” Lemon stated.

“I’ve said America is on trial. And I say yes, George Floyd is us,” he added. “And I get so much pushback from saying, it’s not us because he had this in his past. … What does that have to do with his encounter with a police officer? What does that have to do with something that you did years ago? What does that have to do with anything? Why are you making that excuse? Why are you trying to justify in your mind the inhumane treatment of a person by bringing up everything that’s happened in their lives? You bring up all the negatives. What about the positives?”
Lemon went on to denounce those who have “demonized” Floyd for his addiction issues.
“It’s gross and disgusting,” he declared. “And it really is unfathomable. You think about him being demonized for having addiction issues, when what we preach here and what America has been preaching is don’t stigmatize people who have addiction issues, especially around opioids, considering where we are with opioids right now, around the heroin abuse and addiction in this country.”
