Marc Lamont Hill Calls CNN Panelist an “Example” of a “Mediocre Negro”

It’s always admirable when a TV personality manages to maintain their journalistic composure and still let off a clean ether, and there have been some brilliant ones. Perhaps you might consider adding this one to the list after watching it.

Marc Lamont Hill, a political analyst, author and educator that frequents CNN’s TV panels, questioned the motive behind Steve Harvey and Kanye West being among the first prominent members of the black community to be invited to Trump Tower for a meeting with the president-elect. In conversation with CNN anchor Don Lemon, Hill concurred with the notion that their appearances were about having “a seat at the table,” but admitted that he’d like to see the entertainers bring someone with political clout or stronger community ties that can challenge some of Trump’s hazardous rhetoric.

Fellow panelist Bruce LeVell, who is a member of Trump’s diversity team, disagreed with Hill’s theory, stating that Hill wasn’t in the room, and couldn’t possibly speak to whether or not an appropriate conversation was had. After the two went back-and-forth for a bit, Hill summarized his stance by saying, “Yeah, it was a bunch of mediocre Negroes being dragged in front of TV as a photo-op for Donald Trump’s exploitative campaign against black people. And you are an example of that.”

LeVell didn’t take too kindly to the slight, and denounced Hill’s “name-calling,” but neither panelist hovered over the incident for much longer. You can watch it go down above.
