A lawsuit filed against CNN for racial discrimination apparently was shot down in court, but now an appellate court has said it's a go.

An employee says he was discriminated against.


Court Rules CNN Racial Discrimination Lawsuit Can Proceed

Former CNN producer Stanley Wilson’s racial discrimination lawsuit against CNN may proceed after a California appellate court reversed a lower court’s ruling on Tuesday.
The 51-year-old Wilson, who is black, originally filed suit against CNN in 2014, alleging that the company discriminated against him on the basis of race over his 17-year-career at the network. As Deadline reported at the time, the longtime producer was promoted just once, in 2003, despite applying for a dozen job openings.

Wilson was fired in January 2014 after the network accused him of plagiarism; according to the $5 million lawsuit, the real reason for his termination was discrimination, and Wilson further claimed he was unable to find a job at another network after CNN allegedly published false and defamatory statements about him.

If a white person apply to 12 jobs and it's not selected he is mediocre, if it's a black person that possibility is inconceivable as its clearly systematic racism...

CNN are obviously racists as some of the leaked emails show in how they referred to minorities. And CNN uses minorities in their social propaganda campaigns which never ever benefit any minorities and only further oppress them and our communities.

Hey not siding with the guy and all, but CNN along with other Liberals are pretty racist toward minorities too.

After all the minorities are selected, and placed ... for fear of *racism*

Then maybe. for fairness, majorities can be selected for the same reasons?

Full circle!!?
