CNN FACES RACISM CLASS-ACTION LAWSUIT FROM 175 CURRENT AND FORMER EMPLOYEES…HUGE!

Posted on Updated on

  • CNN: “It’s hard to manage black people” and “Who would be worth more: black slaves from times past, or new slaves?”

 

According to The New York Business Journal, CNN is facing class action lawsuit from 175 current and former employees, alleging racism at America’s liberal cable network. And theirs is worse than Fox News. Hey media, why the silent cricket treatment?

 

From The New York Business Journal :

 

As many as 175 current and former employees of CNN have contacted lawyers about joining a class-action suit that alleges racism at the cable network.

The news comes as two other media organizations, The New York Times and Fox News, are also being sued.

According to the New York Post, the lawsuit against CNN claims that the Atlanta-based company is “rife with racism” and “bigoted remarks.”

“It’s hard to manage black people” and “Who would be worth more: black slaves from times past, or new slaves?” are just some of the statements alleged in the complaint, filed by former CNN executive assistant Celeslie Henley and Ernest Colbert Jr., a former manager at the affiliated Turner Broadcasting System.

Henley and Colbert Jr. , represented by attorney Daniel Meachum, also cite wage discrimination, claiming that they were both paid less than white counterparts.

CNN representatives did not respond to requests for comment.
