CNN primetime anchor Don Lemon, who came out via a New York Times article that profiles the journalist and his upcoming memoir, publicly discusses his homosexuality, what it’s like to come out gay as a black man, growing up as a child of abuse, and his dedication of the book to the New Jersey teen who succumbed to suicide, Tyler Clementi, in this first on-air interview since the Times article.

What does black have to do with it?

Read the book. There is a huge stigma among African Americans regarding homosexuality. That was/is a huge obstacle for the author and African Americans alike.

I'm sorry, but didn't you watch the interview? Don Lemon said there is a HUGE stigma among black people about homosexuality, particularly regarding males. He said for black males, being gay is "the worst thing you could be." It's an unavoidable message that is passed down thru generations.
When someone is being honest and "transparent," it's important to PAY ATTENTION and have empathy with him/her. It doesn't appear you were paying attention to what he was saying. Thank you.

Wasn't he married?
