CNN Faces A MASSIVE Class Action Racial Discrimination Suit That Is Growing ‘Exponentially’

 

 

[CNN IS] facing allegations in a racial-discrimination lawsuit, stemming from a proposed class action in Georgia federal court. In the lawsuit, plaintiffs claim that at CNN and other Time Warner units, African Americans receive lower performance ratings in evaluations, that there are huge discrepancies in pay between employees doing similar jobs but who are of different races, and that promotion for black employees is blocked by a “glass ceiling.”

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the lawsuit, which was filed in December, cited hiring and advancement statistics. It also accuses superiors of hurling out racially charged comments to black employees, such as “It’s hard to manage black people” and “Who would be worth more: black slaves from times past, or new slaves?”
