IRONY: CNN Calls Trump Racist While They’re Getting Sued By 175 Black Employees For Discrimination


(Ryan SaavedraNews personalities and writers at CNN repeatedly try to paint President Donald Trump as a racist, which is ironic considering that they’re being sued by 175 African-American former and current employees for racial discrimination.

Whether it’s Don Lemon claiming that anyone who supports Trump is “complicit” in racism or bitter Ana Navarro calling Trump a “misogynist racist bigoted pig,” CNN’s obsession with trying to connect Trump to racism is obvious.

Ironically, the network that desperately tries to portray itself as strongly opposed to racism is being sued for just that — racial discrimination.

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."
Despite these allegations, CNN continues to attack Trump for his “racism,” using various innuendos they have concocted but that are not rooted anywhere in reality.

For example, CNN’s White House correspondent, Jim Acosta, insinuated that Trump’s remarks about NFL players kneeling during the national anthem were based on racism.

"Why is it that the president over the weekend is going after or seeming to go after African-American athletes?" Acosta asked White House press secretary Sarah Sanders on Monday. "And then this morning he's putting out a tweet praising NASCAR, which obviously is geared towards a different demographic, and the way they stand and respect and honor the flag. Is he trying to wage something of a culture war?"

None of Trump’s tweets have mentioned anything about the racial or ethnic backgrounds of any of the players or teams involved:








In addition to his tweets, none of the remarks made by the president on TV have referenced anything regarding race or ethnicity.
