MSNBC’s Toure on Sunday tweeted that CNN anchor Don Lemon is part of a group of “white leaders” after his advice earlier this year for black men to pull up their pants and make other changes in their lives.

Toure, a co-host on MSNBC’s “The Cycle,” is black, as is Lemon. Toure later clarified that “white leaders,” in which he lumped together Bill O’Reilly, Rush Limbaugh and Lemon, means “leaders of white people.”
Toure got started on the topic after talking about the level of gun violence in the U.S., including “white-on-white” violence.
Why aren't white leaders like Bill O'Reilly and Rush Limbaugh and Don Lemon doing anything to combat white on white violence??? #SOS
