CNN Anchor Don Lemon may have just suffered the single most embarrassing moment of his career when a guest interview didn’t exactly go according to his plan.
Lemon was speaking with British Royals expert Hillary Fordwich when he suggested to her that the Royal family should pay reparations to black people.
“You have those who are asking for reparations for colonialism, and they’re wondering, you know, ‘$100 billion, $24 billion here and there, $500 million there.’”
“Some people want to be paid back and members of the public are wondering, ‘Why are we suffering when you are, you have all this vast wealth?’ Those are legitimate concerns,” Lemon stated.
Fordwich agreed that reparations should be paid, but it was not exactly what Lemon was hoping for. Her response left him speechless and created this instantly viral moment.
“Well I think you’re right about reparations in terms of – if people want it though, what they need to do is, you always need to go back to the beginning of the supply chain. Where was the beginning of the supply chain?” she asked.
“That was in Africa,” she continued, suggesting the African kings who “were rounding up their own people” are the ones that should pay.
She also pointed out that “2,000 British naval men died on the high seas trying to stop slavery” as the Africans were holding their own people in cages on the beaches.
She concluded, “I think you’re totally right. If reparations need to be paid, we need to go right back to the beginning of that supply chain and say, ‘Who was rounding up their own people and having them handcuffed in cages. Absolutely, that’s where they should start.”
Afterwards, Lemon was so shaken by her response that he simply nodded and admitted defeat, moving on to the next segment without addressing any of the knowledge she had just dropped.
To see just how embarrassed Lemon was by his own guest, and what Fordwich had to say about the viral moment, watch the video here.

Also the fact that more white slaves died in transport and in bandage than blacks did. White slaves were treated far worse than black slaves and no one is allowed to even remember it because it is not allowed to be taught in schools.
The truth will set everyone free who chooses to be.
You have to be saved by being baptized for remission of sin. Mark 16:16, acts. 2:38 an 3 more places in the Bible. That says you have to be baptized for the remission of sins.
Don Limon is one racist, uninformed lefty talking head who fits perfectly with the C l o w n News Network.
DON LEMON WANTS FREE MONEY OR HANDOUT. HE IS A KNUKLE HEAD LIKE A COCONUT SHELL. HIS BRAIN
RIGHT IN HIS MOUTH. HE SHOULD BE FIRED. SHAME ON HIM. A MAN DON’T HAVE ANY MORAL VALUE.
repatriation is what Lincoln was doing sending them back to Africa then they are repatriated a one way trip home
Watching Race Baiter Lemonhead’s long overdue spanking was a hoot and a half. You could see the “Oh Schitt” expression on his face as she strapped his a$$.
I’d gladly buy this woman a round of drinks.
I’ve known for years that black tribes sold their own to arab slave traders. But don’t expect kids to be taught the truth in the anti conservative, anti white propaganda “schools” that infest this country nowadays. The establishment these days is all about attacking white people by making phony victims of blacks.
Lincoln’s Civil War has already paid “Slave Reparations’ by BLOOD of over 600,000 White soldiers to FREE SLAVES
Yes, the Irish were slaves too! I’m half Irish so shouldn’t I get reparations for my ancestors slavery? I personally don’t believe in reparations. The black race, black Americans in particular who are tied into this destructive and unrealistic narrative, must be challenged on the truth of their grievance by everyone. Enough of whining and complaining of past aggresions and attempting to collect free money for atrocities that didn’t even happen to them!!! They need to grow up, take responsibility for their thinking and lives, and move up and on from this mind-set and behavior that’s destroying them from the inside out. The blacks are allowing themselves into continually being used and abused by the Democrat Party and globals who’re attempting to take down America and have the entire world into an entirely slave consciousness. They don’t get that these globals want everyone to be slaves and that we will own absolutely nothing (Klaus Schwab has said this) and have absolutely no power over ourselves or our lives. First, get out of the belief that government is a god and supplies all our needs. Nothing comes from government – nothing! Everything on earth comes from our Lord God Almighty! Return to belief in our God and His laws. Let go of the evil globals’ laws that only create misery, destruction and death. For the globals created food crisis, call daily to beloved Jesus to multiply the authentic loaves and fishes in your area. Jesus was a miracle worker on earth and he will bring miracles to earth again if we truly believe in Him and our God. As Jesus told the blind man, “It is because of your faith that has made you whole!” How can Jesus bring forth miracles if we do not believe? Jesus did multiply the loaves and fishes during the Marriage of Cana. Believe in Him and truth and that you deserve it, and He will deliver miracles again. Believe and call forth miracles! The evil globals are attempting to convince us that humans are the destroyer of Mother earth. We are not the problem and our God loves each one of us unconditionallty. We are spiritual beings and God wants us to be and have the best that His earth offers. It is the evil globals that are the problem! They shall not pass!
Hallelujah A. Wilk ! Talk of reparations to people for acts of other people many, many generations ago makes me ill. Those asking in these times did not suffer and they need to check their history books. Those that were brought to the USA and other countries probably have it a whole lot better from where they came from. Slavery was bad, but that was in the past. No one should get reparations !!! What is past is past !!!
Good for the Brits !! ! Don Lemon is truly a racist. It pisses me off so much when people (And I don’t give a damn about what race or nationality that they are) ask for money for their selfish selves going back years and years to something that none of us who are living are guilty of ! Open Mouth and Insert Foot Don Lemon !
why is that lieing racest bum still have a job ? he heeds to be locked up for lieing to people who watched him!
Former slaves in the U.S.A. already got reparations in the form of 40 acres of land and a mule to plow that land so they could grow their own food and sustain themselves. That may not seem like much but if someone today gave you forty acres of land for free it’s value could be substantial. If there are any former slaves living today, by all means give them additional reparations. Otherwise, no. You shouldn’t profit from the condition of servitude of your second or third great grandparents. In a way, that could make you the slave master of your own ancestors.
Lemon why don’t you put both feet in your mouth next time or just find yourself another line of work!!!
Ask don what religion and color the nasties were that brought the slaves to market, and still do! Koran lizards!
