    Don Lemon is guilty of exactly what you said: "There are criminals in all races, but it seems the only ones we hear about are black and Latino. You can blame the media for most of it." Lemon is among those in media reporting like crime is a black or a brown thing. That's wrong. Gotta stop.  All too often black and brown criminals are labeled thugs, while the few white criminals caught are often glamorized and become legends in American mainstream. Did U see cover of Boston bombing suspect on cover of Rolling Stone looking like a rock star? Sad.
