CNN Anchor Tells Guest that 'White Privilege' Prevents him from Seeing Own Biases

'Your privilege does not allow you to see certain biases and certain circumstances in this society'

CNN Anchor Lectures Guest That He Has Racial Blind Spot Because of White 'Privilege' (CNN)

CNN anchor Don Lemon lectured conservative radio host Ben Ferguson for being quick to pan President Obama's Friday address on race, during Saturday's 4 p.m. ET hour of Newsroom.

Lemon -- who has played the race card by twice comparing traditional marriage supporters to segregationists -- told Ferguson that since he's white, he has a "place of privilege" that minorities don't have and therefore can't fully understand the plight of black people in America.
