CNN Slammed as ‘Full Blown Racist’ After Commentators Call Kanye West ‘Token Negro’

CNN is being accused of racism after commentators Bakari Sellers and Tara Setmayer bashed rapper Kanye West over his support for Trump on CNN Tonight with Don Lemon, going so far as to call him a “token negro.” “Kanye West is what happens when negroes don’t read,” CNN commentator Bakari Sellers said, in reference to an old Chris Rock bit. CNN’s Tara Setmayer went even further, calling Kanye West a “an attention whore like the president.” “He’s all of a sudden now the model spokesperson—he’s the token Negro of the Trump Administration?” she also said. Don Lemon laughed and giggled throughout the segment as the two commentators degraded Kanye West. .@Bakari_Sellers: “My issue with Kanye West is quite simple — is that anti-intellectualism simply isn’t cool.” https://t.co/FVeCRODqXl pic.twitter.com/rhH5nWSubZ — CNN Tonight (@CNNTonight) October 10, 2018 Turning Point USA Communications Director Candace Owens accused the network of racism over this language in a tweet sent Wednesday: Last night on @CNN, Kanye West was called a “token negro” and a “dumb negro”.
