CNN was quick to brand Donald Trump and his supporters as racists during the primaries, but the liberal network now faces a class action racism lawsuit – from its own black employees.
The same network that slammed Trump as a “bigot, racist, and misogynist” and called Trump’s election a “whitelash” against our outgoing black president has allegedly stifled black employees with smaller salaries and fewer opportunities for promotion.
The lawsuit, filed last Wednesday on behalf of CNN employees Ernest Colbert Jr. and Celeslie Henley, cites “dramatic differences in pay, harsher evaluations for black males, and fewer available promotions.”
Lawyer Daniel Meachum uncovered such practices while conducting a separate investigation for DeWayne Walker, a former CNN producer who sued CNN in January for $50 million. Walker, who worked for CNN for 13 years, insists that he was never promoted because he is black.
“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,” explains Meachum.
The lawsuit claims that black employees, including Henley, endured racial slurs from their superiors such as “who would be worth more: black slaves from times past or new slaves?”
CNN has refused to comment on the case.
Editor’s note: After all of the CNN coverage encouraging riots and telling minorities how badly they are being treated, it looks like CNN is becoming a victim of their own propaganda.
