Current CNN employee Dewayne Walker had enough of being racially discriminated. Walker decided to lawyer up and sue CNN, Turner Broadcasting, and parent company Time Warner. Breitbart news media covers the story. Walker who has worked for CNN 13 years claims he was passed over for promotions numerous times, received lower review scores than his Caucasian counterparts. Walker has accused CNN of engaging in retaliation, nepotism, discrimination, and racism.
Walker has filed a discrimination suit against CNN. Walker stated CNN retaliated against him for filing the suit with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Walker is seeking $50 million dollars in damages. Celeslie Henley and Ernest Colbert Jr. are also on the plaintiff suit. Attorney Daniel Meachum representing the plaintiffs claimed at least 30 or more insiders helped the plaintiffs get valuable information to bring forth this suit.
My question is, what does Van Jones has to say? What does Donna Brazile have to say? What does Don Lemon have to say? What do any other people of color staff have to say (if they can speak without retaliation). The suit claims that one of the superiors made this statement ‘it’s hard to manage black people’ and ‘who would be worth more: black slaves from times past or new slaves.’”
I was under the IMPRESSION that CNN championed themselves in diversity and equality. Funny how CNN and other leftist sympathizing news organizations accuse Fox News and Breitbart of racism, sexism, discrimination, and lack of diversity. Yet CNN is caught red handed in the same tactics that CNN and other leftist organizations claim they’re against. I hope the plaintiffs win their case and others will come out with their grievances.
