CNN’s Don Lemon, Marc Lamont Hill Openly Mock White People Who Feel Discriminated Against [VIDEO]

On the heels of a new NPR poll this week indicating that a majority of white people (55%) in America feel discriminated against, CNN host Don Lemon and leftist guest Marc Lamont Hill openly mocked white people on Wednesday in a somewhat heated discussion with conservative guest Ben Ferguson.

As Don Lemon was introducing the segment, Marc Lamont Hill couldn’t contain his disdain and laughter, mockingly chortling , “white people are amazing” for feeling discriminated against, even though many institutions rather in government or in the private sector or in academia, using racial preferences when hiring people or in college admittance decisions.

“When white people don’t have complete power and control over a situation, they read their situation as somehow an oppressive situation,” Marc Lamont Hill, a supporter of socialist Bernie Sanders in the 2016 presidential campaign, mocked. “I don’t doubt that 55 percent of white people feel discriminated against, I’m saying there’s something wildly irrational about 55 percent of white people in America thinking that they are being discriminated against because they are white, that is simply untrue and there’s no data for it,” Hill argued.

Ben Ferguson responded by saying it’s also “wildly irrational” that 92 percent — in the same poll — of black people feel discriminated against. Both Lemon and Hill rejected that contention.

“Is it widely irrational that 94% [92%] of African Americans think they’re discriminated against when in reality it’s not even close to that in America?” Ferguson asked. “We are a pretty free country,” which caused both Lemon and Hill to laugh.

“You all laugh because I’m white and I mentioned the obvious statistic there,” Ferguson responded to their laughter before Lemon rudely interrupted.

“I’m laughing because I don’t see where one has to do with the other,” Lemon interjected.

“You can’t just say that one group is allowed to have these feelings and the other group — because they’re white — do not have the right to have feelings,” a fired-up Ferguson shot back.

As time ran out in the segment, Marc Lamont Hill lobbied to get in the last word, but it was too late.

“Oh, man, see, Ben took my last word,” Hill whined. “That’s what white people do,” he sneered.
