THE SHARKS ARE IN THE WATER … This time its racial discrimination.
Yet another lawsuit from previous employees at Fox News. Kelly Wright, a black reporter and anchor who has been with Fox News since 2003, is one of 13 plaintiffs, all people of color who are either current or former Fox News employees, to sue the network in the last month charging racial discrimination. Of course this comes on the foot heals of the ousting of Bill O Reilly and the accusations made against Fox News conservative host Sean Hannity. Most likely noticeably absent from the plaintiffs would be Charles Payne, Juan Williams, Larry Elder, or Arthel Neville .
Fox News’ legal troubles grew even larger Tuesday, with new plaintiffs, including an anchor, joining a suit alleging racial discrimination and harassment at the network.
The suit is now headlined by Kelly Wright, a black reporter and anchor who has been with Fox News since 2003. Wright claims that he “has been effectively sidelined and asked to perform the role of a ‘Jim Crow’ — the racist caricature of a Black entertainer.”
Wright’s allegations involve, among others, recently fired Fox News host Bill O’Reilly and current network co-president Bill Shine.
The suit claims that Wright was shunned from O’Reilly’s now-canceled program, “The O’Reilly Factor,” and that Shine “has demonstrated an obsession with race when it comes to discussions with Mr. Wright, including regularly asking him, ‘how do Black people react to you’ and ‘how do you think White viewers look at you?’”
In one alleged example, Wright claims that he was rebuffed in his efforts to show a series of positive stories about the African-American community on the “Factor” because, according to the complaint, “it showed Blacks in ‘too positive’ a light.”
It would appear that the liberal media are adding fuel to the fire as Breitbart opines, this Wednesday’s episode of NBC’s long-running crime drama Law and Order: SVU will focus on a powerful news executive who has been accused of sexually assaulting one of his network’s on-air personalities.
The episode appears to be inspired by former Fox News network chief Roger Ailes, who resigned following a sexual harassment lawsuit filed by former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson.
While the episode appears to be styled to mimic the real-life drama surrounding Ailes, none of Ailes’ accusers, including former Fox News star anchor Megyn Kelly, have ever accused the former Fox News chief of rape.
UPDATE I: Kelly Wright Says, “Well, I’m not here to be a token, either. I’m here to be a valued employee.”
Just curious, what exactly was it that Wright was discriminated against? At any given time you could have gone to any one of the other networks. He stated that he admires and loves the very people he is going against. He should be respected for having principles, but he also claims to love the very people he is against. What makes Kelly Wright or any one of the others suing Fox News is not the same at CNN, MSNBC et all.
Actor Tim Allen Says Being a Conservative in Hollywood is like Living in 1930′s Nazi Germany (VIDEO)
ISN’T IT IRONIC, SEEING THAT IT’S THE LEFT THAT ALWAYS CALLS THE RIGHT, NAZI’S …
63 year old actor Tim Allen said on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” that being a conservative these days in Hollywood is like living in 1930′s Nazi Germany. Allen went on to say, its like if you don’t believe in what ever one else oes, look out.
Tim Allen says that living in Hollywood right now is akin to Nazi Germany.
The comedian made the claim while appearing on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”
“You gotta be real careful around here,” Allen noted. “You get beat up if you don’t believe what everybody else believes. This is like ’30s Germany.”
ABC Enrages NFL Viewers With Anti-Trump ‘Black-ish’ Promo During ESPN Coverage of NFL Wild Card Game Between Texans and Raiders
AND YOU WONDER WHY ESPN IS HEMORRHAGING VIEWERS?
What else would one expect from the liberal ABC-Disney Television Network? The powers that be thought it a brilliant marketing move to run a promo of the TV sit-com ‘Blackish’ which bills the episode as the “election through the eyes of Black-ish.” They ran the promo during Saturday night’s telecast of the Wild Card game between the Houston Texans and the Oakland Raiders. Yes, that is correct, there actually is a TV show called “Blackish”. I know, you are asking yourself where the show “Whitish” is? C’mon man, you know that would be racist. The liberal media continues their political bias and just cannot accept the loss. How many weeks has it been since the election and the MSM is still spewing this nonsense.
Instead many viewers were annoyed at a promo for next Wednesday’s episode of ABC’s sitcom Black-ish, which features a predominantly African-American cast being decidedly anti-Trump in tone and nature.
In the promo, which bills the episode as the “election through the eyes of Black-ish”, Lucy (a white character played by Christine Reitman) tells her predominantly African-American co-workers: “I voted for Trump!” before adding the clichéd justification, “I’m a racist? I have black friends!”
In another scene, her colleague Daphne (Wanda Sykes) appears to kick out at her for merely expressing that she had chosen to cast her vote for the Republican Party.
As I always say, know your audiance. However, the Libs at ABC don’t seem to understand that concept. Let’s say they got a backlash to Blackish. Yet, another reason why Trump won and Hillary lost. America is tired of the BS from the past 8 years of Obama and this plays right in to it.
“Why does the NFL keep playing an anti-Trump commercial for the terrible show Blackish?” wrote one tweeter. “They must not know their audience”. Another viewer fumed: “I am offended at the preview for the show #blackish about voting for Trump makes you a racist!”
Matt Falk tweeted: “No one watch #blackish. Not everyone who voted for Trump is a racist, That show caters to the lowest common denominator” while Steve James declared on the online social networking service: “Man, Blackish looks so original! A Trump voter isn’t racist because she has black friends! Can’t wait to never watch a second of that show.”
It’s not beyond the realms of possibility that Trump will weigh in on Twitter with his thoughts about Black-ish in the next few days.
After all in October 2014, the President-Elect tweeted: “How is ABC Television allowed to have a show entitled “Blackish”? Can you imagine the furor of a show, “Whiteish”! Racism at highest level?”
Black Man Arrested for Arson in Burning of African-American Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church in Greenville, Mississippi
BLACK MAN ARRESTED IN MISSISSIPPI CHURCH BURNING …
Andrew McClinton was arrested Wednesday for arson in the burning of an African-American church spray-painted with the words, “Vote Trump.” So was McClinton a Trump supporter or a white supremacist … nope. Andrew McClinton of Leland, Mississippi, is an African-American and a member of the congregation. You just can’t make this stuff up Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church in Greenville, Mississippi, was burned and vandalized November 1, a week before the 2016 presidential election. Who thinks that this was an effort to create fake news against Donald Trump so an all too willing liberal MSM would run with the story of churches being burned in Mississippi and tying it false to Trump?It is just another example of “fake hate”.
The burning of this black Mississippi church was called a hate crime and now a black parishioner has been arrested for the crime. So now what? Is it not still a hate crime? Wasn’t the intent to make it look like a hate crime so to make it look like a Trump supporter did it so the Democrats and MSM could run with racism stories?
Mississippi authorities have made an arrest in the burning of an African-American church spray-painted with the words, “Vote Trump.”
Mississippi Department of Public Safety spokesman Warren Strain says Andrew McClinton of Leland, Mississippi, who is African-American, is charged with first-degree arson of a place of worship.
McClinton was arrested Wednesday. Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church in Greenville, Mississippi, was burned and vandalized Nov. 1, a week before the presidential election.
It was not immediately clear whether McClinton is represented by an attorney.
Greenville is a Mississippi River port city of about 32,100 people, and about 78 percent of its residents are African-American.
Are you joking, not politically motivated? So if a black man burns down a black church and writes “vote Trump” on the church to make it look like a political hate crime, its not politically motivated. But if a white supremacist did, it is? Seriously? Add one more reason why Donald Trump was elected president as common sense Americans are sick and tired of the double standard.
The state fire marshal said investigators do not believe the fire was politically motivated, but there a signs it may have been done to appear that way.
Andrew McClinton, 45, of Leland, Mississippi, is scheduled to make an initial court appearance Thursday in Greenville — the city where Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church was burned and vandalized Nov. 1, a week before the presidential election.
The investigation is continuing, and officials have not revealed a possible motive.
“We do not believe it was politically motivated. There may have been some efforts to make it appear politically motivated,” Mississippi Insurance Commissioner Mike Chaney, who is also the fire marshal, told AP.
Mississippi Department of Corrections records show McClinton was sentenced in 1991 to three years’ probation for a grand larceny conviction in Washington County, where Greenville is the county seat. His probation was revoked in 1992 for receiving stolen property in Greenville, said Department of Corrections spokeswoman Grace Simmons Fisher.
MTV offers up the below racist video as to why they are a completely irrelevant media outlet. In an MTV liberal world white guys can be made fun of and ridiculed, but actually telling the truth is deemed racist. What a sad state of affairs at MTV. Why are they even on the air at this point? Interestingly enough at no point in their video did they ask for black on black crime and killing to stop. I guess that would be racist, huh?
