HAH!! What do you want to bet that CNN raised red flags when they started spelling “Negro” with a double G. Honestly, this couldn’t have happened to a better so-called “news network”.
Recently it was revealed that black employees that work for CNN have joined a class action lawsuit against their employers over discrimination, abuse of power, revenge and retaliation.
If this is true, I applaud their efforts and wish them the best. Because they are looking at a hard battle in the future. For what it’s worth, I honestly hope they have the courage to remain focused and determined to accomplish their goal.
From Atlanta Journal Constitution:
A group of black CNN employees are filing a class action lawsuit against Atlanta-based CNN, Turner Broadcasting and New York based parent company Time Warner for racial discrimination.
Daniel Meachum, lead attorney, sent out a press release this morning with a scheduled press conference at 10:30 a.m. I do not know if the lawsuit has been filed in court as of yet.
“As a result of the current discrimination lawsuit filed on behalf of DeWayne Walker vs. CNN, Time Warner & Turner, we have uncovered stories involving abuse of power, nepotism, revenge, retaliation and discrimination” Meachum said in a press release.
Were we supposed to be shocked by this revelation? CNN has been cited numerous times for its asinine anchors and majority white faces. The only black that had an ounce of time on the air was Soledad O’Brien and she doesn’t even embrace her color, not to mention she was released and then their’s Don Lemon, I’ll let that speak for itself.
CNN tends to bring black pundits onto their show who are consistently angry and willing to slam Republicans for being racist. It’s a sad pity card that they’ve been running for years and Americans are tired of.
I wish the black employees the best of luck! Don’t forget to share this story as much as your can, because you know you won’t hear a peep from CNN! It’s up to you.
