Talib Kweli vs. Don Lemon On CNN

unnamed

The Blast.

This wasn’t Talib Kweli’s first time on CNN, but it’ll probably be his last. During his interview with anchor Don Lemon in Ferguson, MO Talib argued that the network was mishandling the narrative of the Mike Brown protests. He even accused Don of being rude when they met. Eventually, they came to some common ground and shook hands. Reality TV redefined.

    Kweli should be arguing about why nobody gives a shit when his record drops (bombs).

    • William James

      Yeah bc you’ll be jackn off to Drakes poster…

  • Kingly_Caracter

    Don reminds me of that dude from the Boondocks soooo much…I was sitting here just waiting for him to say “niggahhhhhh”. LoL!

    • GreenBergs

      lmfao, the only thing talib achieved was sounding like an angry nigga…which is what they expected/wanted…cnn won

      • Kingly_Caracter

        No lie…I was like NOOOOO don’t take the bait! Nothing more they wanna show than belligerent niggas…

        • GreenBergs

          Exactly, im surprised he didnt know better

    • Brian B.Dot™ Miller

      i always thought that character was based off him

  • facts

    FOH Talib!! NYPD choked Eric Garner to DEATH on your front porch in the city where u from but u ain’t marching here? Where u at? These rappers are nothing but opportunist and fuck that other cornball nigga.

    • GreenBergs

      eric garner isnt creating the same publicity, these rappers are see through..

    • William James

      How do u know he didnt march or had a hand in any protests? Were u at all of them Dr. King?

  • Colonel Mustafa

    Talib takes an L here. He was very unprofessional in how he handled the his side of the interview. When will these rappers ever learn?

    • Dashing28

      Peep the Killer Mike interview. He handled himself perfectly.

      • GreenBergs

        its that southern respect, im from nyc n could admit we got short fuses..

        • hilroycahier

          Mike’s interviewer was easier going though. No real tensions where they were either. Talib was in the heat of it so it makes sense that it should be emotional. Any normal person right now over there should and would be infuriated.

    • princesspr

      Did you watch the interview? If so, you wouldn’t have said that Talib was unprofessional. He was right, Don DID NOT let him finish his point. Don did interrupt because he wanted to address what Talib has said; however, Don should have let Talib finish his point first.

      • Colonel Mustafa

        Nah you wrong. Take a college class or something. Talib did not have to get all bent out of shape how he did. There are other ways Talib could have handled the situation. Instead he chose a way that left hip with a black eye.

        • princesspr

          No, I am not wrong. I do NOT have to be a college graduate (by the way I am) to know that you do not interupt people while they are speaking. Oh, when you were attemtping to be condesceding AND rude, at least know what yoy are talking about.

  • Michael I bett

    Haha. ..but then he was cutting him off right after when Don started a point….people like charlamagn and Don handle rapper attacks so well, lol, not catching feelings and just continuing on.

    • k.smith

      don’t disrespect don by mentioning charlamagne’s name in the same sentence. disgusting.

  • Bernie Madoff

    “We live in a world that’s run by white supremacy.” You can tell Talib is one of those muslim reverse racist.

  • http://www.7themerson.com MannyThoughts

    Talib could have handled himself better here. I know he wanted to be bold and everything, but would he have said the whole “white supremacists” thing in front of an actual white interviewer?

  • rockit5

    LEMON IS A SCARY CAT

  • KKK

    KILL ALL WHITE PEOPLE!!! JUSTICE FOR BIG MIKE!!!

  • THE REAL mac DIESEL

    THE WHITE RACIST GENE GOT DON COONIN’ AND THE ANGRY BLACK TALIB ACTING A FOOL OUT HERE!!!! LMFAO!!!! WTF??!!!

    DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

  • #thePlug

    Not gonna lie, Don Lemon kind of son’d Talib..

  • Levar Burton

    Smh

  • Ripper

    Not hating here but Talib acted like a 2 dollar hoe. If you had problem with Don, you could’ve talked with him after the camera stopped rolling. Talib tried to act real bitchy and diva like. Trying to pout. Somebody throw this dude a bib and bottle.

  • Dsunn

    ‘ngga you in your feelings’ -rich homie quan.

    Talib was crying instead of steering the conversation. Don is a reporter for cnn, not chuck d or a member of the X clan. Talib been overloaded his righteous ego, why u think theres only one blackstar album. Ask Flaco

  • Marcus Fields

    Its funny how when talib is on and he gets emotional about the convo everyone wants to say he is an ignorant,belligerent angry black man(nigga). This leads me to believe that those name callers have never watched any news on politics or any other hot button topics because this type of exchange happens all of the time..OR even worse they have been mind fucked by the mass media and programed to apply those labels to the black man while simultaneously applying words like excited,emotional and passionate to the white men that display the same aggression.Furthermore you never hear about the “sexual tension” between two white males in a heated debate but bc you have trained to either vilify or emasculate the black man these are the best comments you could come up with..stupid fucktards…

    • THE REAL mac DIESEL

      SO DAMN TRUE!!!! HA!!!!

      DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

    • William James

      Truth…
