Why Is Don Lemon Catching Hell?

Let me start by reminding everyone what the hallmark of the critical thinker is, it is the sincere ability to seek to understand the perspectives of others, most especially when that perspective is diametrically or even violently opposed to your own.  With that clear understanding let me first say that the title on this article … Continue reading
