Most people treat other people with respect and tolerance in a civilized society, if and until the interactions turn negative, untenable or uncivilized.

Possibly Mr. Lemon, has come across an article on the internet blog, which may have raised this question in his mind.
The article is Blacks Aren’t Human with the byline ROSEMARY W. PENNINGTON (EDITOR) · 14 MARCH, 2015. Written with a global sociological view.

I'll provide you some aid Mr. Lemon, this was an opinion piece, and the internet is full of opinions, some reasonable, some not.

You are young Mr. Lemon, a Millennial, you need to pace yourself, lest your world suddenly deteriorates because of prejudicial thinking...

#2 'I Don't Know If America Sees Black People ... as Fully Human'

Show us some African-American mathematicians, Don. Cause, to me, you and the rest of African-American celebrities are circus monkeys.

#3 /\ You are young Mr. Lemon, a Millennial, you need to pace yourself, lest your world suddenly deteriorates because of prejudicial thinking...

Age is certainly not a guarantor of knowledge but it usually does contain a measure of life experiences and observations. These experiences and observations guide our opinions, thinking and intentions. I believe an applicable term or reference might simply be our desire or intention for 'survival.'

Some form of organized 'civilization' containing positive behaviors and outcomes appears to be a key to survival. While they cannot yet communicate with us, I suspect the animal kingdom might agree.

'Fully human' is certainly not the question. 'Fully civilized' is likely the correct term.

#4 "Attacks from any privately-owned primate in captivity should be expected because these animals are not living healthy lives where they can express their natural urges and engage in natural behaviors," said Erika Fleury, program director at the North American Primate Sanctuary Alliance.

#8 I don't know how America perceives Mr. Lemon but he has always come across to me as a moron and as a very biased shill for the left.

#9 g(r)omgoru, you could have just said 'celebrities are circus monkeys'. You might catch some innocents in the mix but in general it's more inclusive and accurate.

#12 RJ let me parse
(1) Not everyone should be a mathematician - but, a 30 million strong group (given all these affirmative action educational opportunities) should produce some. Unless something is lacking.
(2) Notable African-Americans: celebrities, politicians, university (non-stem) professors just don't make up for (1) for me.
Sorry. I guess I'm a racist. Also male chauvinist pig.

#13 To keep from becoming the racist that people like Lemon accuse me of being, I must constantly remind myself that not all black people are as deficient as he is.

#14 Mr. Lemon, video clips like these about the mob twerking on an ambulance (thanks, Skid) also make it difficult for me. I don't want to be a racist but clearly something has gone wrong somewhere. It might help if more prominent people of color would publicly denounce Critical Race Theory, or at least denounce twerking on an ambulance to celebrate a shooting that occurred during a Juneteenth celebration.

#15 No Don, I just see you as living proof that not all humans are even minimally intelligent.

#19 Grom, I'm only talking about the second part of your post. Celebrities are trained monkeys and I feel that should be pointed out at every opportunity.

#22 Oregon made it illegal to own chimpanzees in 2010, but anyone who owned an ape prior to that year was authorized to keep the animal for the rest of its life

Hmm. What's more plausible -- that they didn't know the term, or that they couldn't bring themselves to use it?
