Hey now! Guess Byron Allen is allowed to say that, but I’d be investigated for a hate crime by Obama and Eric Holder if I said; “Give Al Sharpton a Bucket of Chicken”? LIKE me on Facebook – no one turned away.
That’s right – the double-standard which really prevents any hopes of equality of the races is in full-force – even though everybody, regardless of race, color, ethnicity or political leanings are laughing at this one.
You remember Byron Allen – right? Well, if you do, you’re an old codger from way-back television. I can’t even remember the name of the show – was it “Real People”? That’s right – too old and lazy to Google it even.
Anyway, I happen to know that Byron is an exceptionally skilled and successful TV producer now of several shows, including “Comics Unleashed” which has been running for a hundred years and you’re probably familiar with.
Mr. Allen decided he’s had enough with Mr. Sharpton’s bigotry and went off the other day on Al and other race-baiters:
Entertainment figure Byron Allen is among a group of black media owners that filed a $20 billion discrimination lawsuit against Comcast and Time Warner Cable — which called the employment of MSNBC’s Al Sharpton “a sham, undertaken to whitewash Comcast’s discriminatory business practices” — and Allen just went off against Sharpton, corporate America and even President Barack Obama.
Appearing on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” Sunday morning, Allen was angry particularly over his belief that a number of corporations ignore other black figures but do business with Sharpton because he’s the “least expensive negro.”
Host Brian Stelter pushed back on the claim, but Allen only doubled down, saying the corporate mentality is “don’t do business with real African American-owned companies, just give him $50,000 and a bucket of chicken and we’re good.”
Allen also criticized President Obama, saying he’s been “bought and paid for” by corporate America. “He has taken donations from Comcast. Comcast is his biggest contributor. AT&T is one of his biggest contributors. Listen, Obama, your own FTC is investigating AT&T for throttling. How can you even consider them to buy DirecTV when you’re suing them? Is it because you took donations? Yes, Obama. Don’t even think about letting them merge until they settle this lawsuit and that lawsuit.”
I especially chuckled at the “least expensive negro” comment – something right out of a Tarantino film. The truth is, if there were no racism – what would Al Sharpton do for a living? Whatever it is – I know it wouldn’t involve paying any taxes…
Okay, I Googled it – “Real People”
Byron Allen Stands by President Obama ‘Blackface’ Diss and Threatens Hillary Clinton Too!
President Obama refused to address the racial issues raised by famed Hollywood producer Byron Allen, according to Allen, who’s now blasting the president AND the potential future president. Allen said that Obama is a “white president in blackface.”
The remark ignited huge controversy, but when Allen went on TMZ Live, he refused to apologize. Instead, he said he was intentionally being harsh on Barack Obama because “Black life in America is harsh!” Allen also says he’s only going public with this because he met the President face-to-face, at a fancy $40k/plate dinner , and raised his concerns, but never heard back.
Aside from ripping Obama, he also warns Hillary Clinton to address his concerns or she’s not going to get black vote.
