On Monday, CNN contributor Bakari Sellers explained what slavery was to Trump’s former aide Steve Cortes after he said President Donald Trump’s ad was not racist.
Lemon mentioned that CNN and other networks refused to play the ad because it was full of racist commentary and lies.
However, Cortes disagreed. “I don’t think its racist because America is not a race. We’re multiracial,” Cortes said.
However, before he could finish his rant, Sellers interrupted him.
“No, I’m black. Let’s get this clear. We’ve got a bunch of races up here,” Sellers said.
Cortes then said that people need to come to America the legal way as he referenced the ad.
“Have you heard of slavery?” Sellers said. “My family came in from the West Coast of Africa. We went through bondage, slavery, rape, and pillaging. Then we went through Jim Crow and slave codes. So now we’re at this point where we have 400 years of degradation, oppression and I have to explain that on national TV?”

Giuliani’s public invitation to Ukraine to interfere in US elections opened the door for other countries to run to Trump
President Donald Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani turned heads with his bizarre, unhinged rant on national television that effectively urged Ukraine to continue trying to gather dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden — and for news outlets to take whatever they find seriously.
As Casey Michel wrote in The Daily Beast, even if this effort ultimately fails to turn up useful opposition research against Biden, this is a profoundly dangerous development for American democracy.
Trump whistleblower needs to go directly to FBI because Bill Barr can’t be trusted: Ex-FBI director
Appearing on MSNBC with host Alex Witt, former FBI Assistant Director for Counterintelligence Frank Figliuzzi blew up Donald Trump's claim that he is the victim of a "Ukraine Witchhunt."
He then added that the whistleblower who went to the inspector general with a serious charge against the president should take what he has and go to the FBI within a week if nothing happens.
"We've got to get to the bottom of this, and we can't rely on leaks and certain reporters getting certain tidbits of information," the ex-FBI man explained. "This needs to be explored and it's likely this could end up in a criminal investigation."
Furious Biden goes scorched earth on ‘serial abuser’ Trump over smears in epic rant
On Saturday in Des Moines, Iowa, former Vice President Joe Biden furiously laid into President Donald Trump amid reports he tried to strong-arm the Ukrainian government into digging up dirt on him and his son.
"Here's what I know, I know Trump deserves to be investigated," said Biden. "He is violating every basic norm of a president. You should be asking him the question, why is he on the phone with a foreign leader trying to intimidate a foreign leader, if that's what happened? That appears to have happened. You should be looking at Trump. Trump's doing this because he knows I'll beat him like a drum and he's using the abuse of power and every element of the presidency to try to do something to smear me."
