A video of Justin Bieber using the n-word in a joke and another video where the pop star sang about joining the KKK when he was 15 surfaced earlier this week. While Bieber has issued an apology, in which he takes full responsibility for his actions, CNN host Don Lemon is blaming blacks. 

Lemon’s remarks were expressed in an op-editorial published on Black America Web on Thursday under the title, “Are We To Blame For Justin Bieber’s Use of the N-Word?”

From Black America Web:

Clearly Justin Bieber, a young man who by the way, has immersed himself in black, Hip Hop culture should not be saying the n-word.
