CNN’s Don Lemon: “As a journalist, you weigh how much you should criticize the president because he’s black.”….

That statement should strike the independent psyche as odd. Alas, it does not…. why? Because the filtering prism witnessed (as applied) is only based on one thing, the perception of importance.
Why would skin color even factor in to whether or not the policy/ideology is wrong, unless you think the skin color is a defining factor in your view toward the policy/ideology.
Like most within the professionally aggrieved class, Lemon is stating he’s black first and a journalist second. He has to overcome his inherent sense of race, to carry out his responsibility of a journalist. Such is the reality of something that rings true in all progressives; ideological bias trumps all else when expressed.
In Don Lemon’s case it’s his race and skin color because this is what he views as central to his own psychological definitions. Black is his foundational principle.
For non-black media types the foundational principle, which overlay their decisions, is their liberal sense of world-view.http://theconservativetreehouse.com/2014/02/28/cnns-don-lemon-as-a-journalist-you-weigh-how-much-you-should-criticize-the-president-because-hes-black/
