Irony Alert – 175 Black Employees Sue CNN For Racial Discrimination

Daily Wire-

The lawsuit, filed in December 2016, has gone largely unreported by the media as left-leaning news organizations would rather focus on the recent struggles of Fox News instead.

The lawsuit alleges racial discrimination by CNN against 175 former and current African-American employees:

Unlike the lawsuit against Fox News, the one against CNN and sister companies is much broader, claiming among other things 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.” The complaint cites hiring and advancement statistics while alleging that African-American employees have endured slurs from superiors, including “It’s hard to manage black people” and “Who would be worth more: black slaves from times past, or new slaves?” …

According to a plaintiffs’ motion to amend that was filed March 23, “Since the filing of this action, counsels for the plaintiffs have been contacted by more than 175 people, both former and current employees of the Defendant, requesting to be members of the putative class action, all having similar complaints of intentional racial discrimination, discrimination impact and discriminatory practices employed by the Defendants.”

  1. “The complaint cites hiring and advancement statistics…”

    Done in by your own HR minions, CNN. Didn’t see that coming, did you?

    I still hate HRM’s more than lawyers, though.

  2. SAME ‘OL TEMPLATE ISN’T IT

    1. Racial slurs no one hears but the black people get together and claim they do.

    2. Lack of promotion. Black people have special timelines in which they expect to be promoted whether they deserve it or not.

    3. Class action suits to make it look like its wide-spread.

    So you comply with federal affirmative action racial favoritism programs, hire unqualified people to satisfy the bean-counters, and you get sued anyway. I wonder when the left-wing will finally approve of shit-canning this scam program once and for all.

  3. “…claiming among other things that African-Americans receive lower performance ratings in evaluations…”
    Newsflash: Lower performance ratings usually come from lower performance.

    “…that there are dramatic differences in pay between similarly situated employees of different races…”
    “Similarly situated” employees do NOT have the same jobs, responsibilities, experience or degree of contributions to the firm.

    “…and that the promotion of African-American employees is blocked by a “glass ceiling.””
    Sorry. Dems White Wimmens be done take dat “Glass Ceiling” thang. Go steal yo own, homey!
