Don Lemon on Sleeping Black Student: White People Are ‘Entitled’ To Call the Police When They Feel Uncomfortable

‘You’re entitled to do this because you think that you have some sort of authority in society — ‘

LEMON: "Here's the word I was looking for. It's entitled. You're entitled to call the police on someone because you feel uncomfortable. You're entitled to do this because you think that you have some sort of authority in society -- that everybody should have the same authority in society ... We need to get over that. We need to stop whispering when we say white and black. When we say privilege, we just have to say those things."
