[See NewsBusters for more.] Don Lemon joined CNN Newsroom hosts Jim Sciutto and Poppy Harlow on Tuesday to promote his newly released book This is the Fire: What I Say to My Friends About Racism. When asked if he is optimistic about the state of race relations in America, Lemon said that he was, because Joe Biden won in November.
Harlow led Lemon by reading from the book, "here's the first line: 'Today I heard a man, a dying man cry out to his momma and I wept for the world that will soon belong to you.' It's about George Floyd calling out for his mother with his last breaths. You say you wrote it to heal America. And that indicates to me that you're hopeful we can be healed."
