The Racist News Network

This is...a lawsuit:
Walker, who has worked for 13 years at CNN as an integrated marketing manager, had filed a previous lawsuit alleging that the network repeatedly passed him over for promotion because he is black. He also claimed that CNN retaliated against him for filing a discrimination complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The employee is demanding $50 million in damages.

Only two employees are named as plaintiffs in the class-action case: Celeslie Henley, a former executive administrative assistant at CNN, and Ernest Colbert Jr., a senior manager at Turner Broadcasting Systems. But Meachum alleges that up to 30 other insiders helped them gather information on the “company-wide pattern and practice” of discrimination that he claims has gone on for at least 20 years.

Meachum claims that internal practices show “disproportionately lower scores on evaluations” for blacks, especially black males, and that black employees are fired at a higher rate than white employees. The suit further alleges that blacks have also been forced to endure racial slurs.
