A serious lawsuit claiming racial discrimination has been filed against liberal news network CNN — and top executives at the company are not happy.
Of course, racial discrimination and sexual discrimination are not new claims against the television channel imfamous for calling President Donald Trump and his supports “racist.”
An Atlanta lawyer, who previously filed a discrimination case that was dismissed, is refiling his lawsuit with a new set of plaintiffs and even more alleged victims.

Alleged racial discrimination is “as abhorrent as all of the sexual harassment cases that are rightfully now being prosecuted,” lawyer Daniel R. Meachumm told Fox News. “Educated, well-intentioned, experienced and talented African-Americans are being discriminated against.”
In the first case filed, Celeslie Henley, who worked for CNN for seven years, claims she was allegedly fired after emailing CNN’s Human Resource department about discriminatory treatment.
The report also claimed that African-Americans at the company face a “glass ceiling” on their career paths.
Critics say there’s a staggering amount of claims the company engages in “plantation-style” racism — using African-Americans for their labor, but sharing none of the rewards.
In fact, the first suit filed had a whopping total of 175 plaintiffs!
Another 30 victims have come forward reporting complaints against the network since the dismissal of the first lawsuit.
“We are drafting a new complaint, line by line, addressing the issues that he outlined for us,” Meachum said.
The attorney provided that he understands that proving discrimination in any case can be “challenging”, but that the 205 plaintiffs involved “are not overly sensitive, walking around with chips on their shoulder.”
The new report will be filed sometime by the end of the year once necessary paperwork has been gathered for the 30 new plaintiffs.

There is no telling what is the biggest hypocrisy from CNN is. Is it Don Lemon calling all Trump supports “complicit in racism”?
Could it be Ana Navarro calling Trump a “misogynist racist bigoted pig”?
For a network accused of having hundreds of racial discrimination issues, they sure are quick to accuse others.
“With the information that we have, and will get during discovery, I think we will be able to survive a motion for summary judgement. At that point, I think we will be victorious,” Meachum said.
