The George Zimmerman trial might be last week's news, but it doesn't mean that people (and news anchors) won't be talking about it for the next few years.
A video posted on Breitbart showed CNN anchor Don Lemon siding with Bill O'Reilly's "Talking Points Commentary," where the Fox News anchor denounced President Barack Obama, among many others, of evading race-talk in favor of race victimization.
Citing the lack of a stable African-American family unit as the real cause for black crime and "gangsta" culture, O'Reilly also brought up the statistic that 73 percent of African-Americans are born out of wedlock and because of this African-Americans "gravitate towards vice."
Lemon's response came Saturday on his own show, where he went even further and suggested five things African-Americans should do in order to "clean up their act."
