CNN’s Don Lemon was interviewing commentator-about-town Goldie Taylor about the social faultlines this case [Trayvon Martin] has exposed, and casually said, as an aside, “please don’t send me any more tweets that by having this conversation, I’m a racist.”

After a commercial break, Lemon revealed that someone on Twitter had responded by saying “Don Lemon, you are a racist. You are fixated on this one issue over and over. We want to hear the news, not your personal agenda. Go work for BET.”

Mr. Lemon added, “That was the nice one. He didn’t call me the n-word.”
