    A Harriet Tubman sex tape? Was Don Lemon right?


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     The video in question has since been taken down.

    Russell Simmons' posting of a sex tape featuring Harriet Tubman sex tape shows that in 2013, we in the African American community are our biggest enemies as it relates to promoting positive images of ourselves. I would say that Simmons crossed the line, but that line has actually been erased by those seeking to build their empires on the backs of others, often within our own community. It gives new perspective to Don Lemon's argument.
