The unemployment rate for black American hit a record low of 5.5 percent in the latest numbers announced Friday by the Labor Department, but instead of celebrating the good news, CNN anchor Don Lemon used the occasion to call President Trump a racist and credit former President Barack Obama for the good news. 

Lemon teased: “Black unemployment hits a record low. How do black voters weigh the numbers against the president’s racist comments?”
