Appearing on “Hannity” civil rights lawyer Leo Terrell blasted CNN host Don Lemon for his defense of “Black Lives Matter.”
“Black Lives was exposed last night by Don Lemon … Don Lemon admitted they don’t care about crime at all the cities [like] Chicago or any of these big cities, they don’t care about a police officer being shot and killed.”
Terrell continued “Don Lemon said on TV that Black Lives only cares if a police officer is involved in a shooting … Watch the video: Black Lives is only concerned about a few individuals and they don’t care about black lives or that seven-year-old girl in Chicago or that six-year-old in New York. More importantly Black Lives’ … ultimate goal is to tear down American institutions.”
Civil rights lawyer Leo Terrell says Black Lives Matter doesn't "care about the Black lives of that 7-year-old girl in Chicago, or the 6-year-old in New York.”
It’s “ultimate goal is to tear down the American institution.”

Here is segment Terrell was referring to:
The Black Lives Matter movement was started because it was talking about police brutality, if you want an all Black Lives Matter movement that talks about gun violence in communities, including Black communities, then start that movement.
That’s not what Black Lives Matter is about. It’s not an all-encompassing… if someone started a movement that said ‘cancer matter,’ and then someone came and said, ‘Why aren’t you talking about HIV?’ It’s not the same thing, we’re talking about cancer.”
So the Black Lives Matter movement is about police brutality and injustice in that manner, not about what’s happening in black neighborhoods. There are people who are working on that issue and if you want to start that issue, why don’t you start it?
Do you understand what I’m saying?
