During the transition between Cuomo Prime Time and CNN Tonight on Wednesday night, host Chris “Fredo” Cuomo brazenly claimed that white people are devoid of empathy and lack the ability to “see humanity” in black people—specifically, in George Floyd. The identity-obsessed anchor went on to allege that white Americans are complacent and take “comfort” in being racist and stereotyping others.
During the handoff, Don Lemon and Cuomo talked about how compelling and emotional the witness testimony was in the trial of former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin. Cuomo began the virtue signaling by generalizing and bashing white people for being ignorant and insensitive while formulating opinions:
“There’s an amazing opportunity for the majority, today, in watching the trial of George Floyd’s murder. And very often white people come to a conclusion that, you know what, I don’t really understand this, I don’t live it, I don’t feel it. But often it ends there because it’s hard to get that different perspective.”
“I think it’s really instructive for me and for a lot of white people,” Cuomo concluded, “people in the majority to see how many people of color who were standing by watching this happen and having an emotional connection to the distress and the pain that resolved itself in guilt in them.”
Lemon, being the race-baiting propagandist he is, took Cuomo’s bait and accused white Americans of not seeing blacks as human beings.

Cuomo doubled down and even took it a step further by asserting that he has far less “faith” in white people to exercise compassion than Lemon does:
“I think that you’re putting more faith in people’s ability to do this than I have right now. See the humanity in George Floyd, well that requires humanity in the seer.”
Cuomo went on to malign law-abiding and police-supporting citizens for not doing more to end “racism” or “systemic injustice.” The self-absorbed news host then claimed that anyone willing to afford Chauvin the presumption of innocence is complicit in perpetuating institutional inequality:
“You know, we often say the minority can’t change racism or systemic injustice, the majority has to. But does it want to? Isn’t there a convenience, isn’t there a comfort in being able to excuse anything that an officer does by saying, you’re anti-police, you choose to see that. And you don’t choose to see what is in such abundance in this trial right now, which is just a pain of people who feel that there but for the grace. And my question is I really hope that people are watching what’s happening right now not through the lens of politics but through the lens of people. And do you see that pain, don’t you want to stop that pain, don’t you want less of that pain. I’ll listen to what you have to say.”
It’s worth noting that neither Lemon nor Cuomo (who actually attended law school) urged viewers to consider Chauvin innocent until proven guilty. Instead, they said emphatically told each other “I love you,” and said goodbye.
