On Thursday, CNN's Don Lemon was absolutely thrilled about the fact that New York City painted the phrase "Black Lives Matter" on the street in front of Trump Tower. According to Lemon, "Donald Trump just hates this." The entire segment basically acted as a public service announcement for Black Lives Matter. He had political analyst Jared Yates Sexton as a guest, in addition to Iesha Sekou, whose organization helped paint the mural. Lemon made it clear that "I'm so glad that you're on." Sexton had absolutely outrageous analysis: "Isn't it something that the President of the United States takes it as a personal insult, the idea that black lives matter? I mean, that's really what Trumpism boils down to, right? It's the idea of a mythology of black lives are disposable and white supremacy is always brimming right underneath the surface." As the segment came to a close, Sexton praised the murals as "symbols of change that is slowly deconstructing a systemically racist, white supremacist system."
