CNN Sued Again for Discrimination Against Blacks
Hey CNN, where the black people at?
And why has Don Lemon taken a knee for the black brothers and sisters? The Fake News Network wronged blacks!
According to Fox News,
The Atlanta lawyer whose racial discrimination suit against CNN was dismissed earlier this year says he is re-filing the class action case – this time with a new set of plaintiffs and even more alleged victims.
The network news channel’s alleged racial discrimination is “as abhorrent as all of the sexual harassment cases that are rightfully now being prosecuted,” Daniel R. Meachum told Fox News. “Educated, well-intentioned, experienced and talented African-Americans are being discriminated against.”
Celeslie Henley, a plaintiff in the first version, said she worked at CNN for seven years until she was allegedly fired after emailing the human resources department about discriminatory treatment. The suit also claimed that the liberal network had a “glass ceiling” on the career paths of African-American staffers.
The original lawsuit had 175 plaintiffs, but Meachum said 30 more alleged victims have come forward since Judge William Duffey Jr. essentially ruled in July the case didn’t have enough to move forward as a class action suit. “We are drafting a new complaint, line by line, addressing the issues that he outlined for us,” Meachum said.
The attorney also said he understands proving discrimination is “a challenge,” but said the 205 plaintiffs involved “are not overly sensitive, walking around with chips on their shoulder.”
The suit will be refiled sometime this year, according to Meachum, who said he is still gathering the necessary paperwork from the new plaintiffs. The news comes as CNN continues to cause problems for parent company Time Warner as it tries to complete an $84.5 billion deal with AT&T.
The original suit “alleged CNN and sister companies claims that African-Americans receive lower performance ratings in evaluations.”
I don’t know whether this is true or not. But I do know that when hiring black Leftists, companies need to understand the risks.
Simply put: if the people in this lawsuit were white, there would be no lawsuit.
Such is one of the main issues with black unemployment. Because when companies hire black Leftists, they must include these “risk” in the hiring portfolio. With whites, just the normal business problems to consider.
Regardless, I feel no sorrow for CNN. Leftists created this entitlement mentality among black Leftists, and quite frankly everybody. Leftists in general want to work less and get more.
This isn’t the first time CNN was sued by black employees.
We reported on a lawsuit against CNN involving 175 people.
The Fake News Network has a host of problems. In addition to making up scandals, they’re being called out for racism!
A lawsuit filed last year just grew exponentially.
According to the Conservative Tribune:
[The lawsuit] has recently grown to include hundreds of former or current employees of the organization.
Though initially filed by just two plaintiffs, the suit was amended last month to include “more than 175 people, both former and current employees of the Defendant, requesting to be members of the putative class action,” according to a motion filed in the lawsuit.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the suit alleged that “African-Americans receive lower performance ratings in evaluations, that there are dramatic differences in pay between similarly situated employees of different races and that the promotion of African-American employees is blocked by a ‘glass ceiling.’”
Again, I won’t lament CNN’s fate. They deserve what they get.
