TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): According to Don Lemon, Kanye West's skin color means that he is required to behave in a very specific way. If he chooses to behave in any other way he should be punished. 

Because according to Don Lemon, Kanye West's race is his destiny and it defines everything about him. 

People used to talk like this 50 years ago as they defended racial segregation in the American south. What a surprise to learn they are still talking that way. This time it's on CNN.
