Ebony Editor Attacks Ben Carson, Other Black Conservatives

Jamilah Lemieux, senior editor at Ebony, launched a Twitter tirade against black conservatives, such as Ben Carson, and attacked Republican National Committee deputy press secretary Raffi Williams after incorrectly assuming he was white.

She was set off by news that Carson and Armstrong Williams were going to start a magazine for black conservatives.

Lemieux’s reaction sparked Williams to weigh in questioning why she was seemingly opposed to intellectual diversity.

Soon after, Lemieux tried to dismiss Williams as a “white dude” telling her what to think.

After realizing her mistake, Lemieux offered an apology of sorts, but it was far from heartfelt.

After her apology, she continued to denigrate conservatives, comparing them to cockroaches and calling Carson “insane.”
