Fox News Heard The Lions Roar!

Kelly Wright sues Fox News after years of racial discrimination. 
Fox News got a handful of lawsuits this week. There were 11 current and former Black employees suing the network for racial discrimination. Andrea Tantaros is filing a criminal complaint against the network after she claimed that former Fox News president Roger Ailes and his allies tapped her phone and email.

This class-action lawsuit filed on Tuesday describes the network as an "abhorrent. intolerable, unlawful and hostile racial discrimination."

Tichaona Brown, Tabrese Wright worked for the payroll department and they sued first in March against former network comptroller, Judith Slater/ The New York Times report that the former comptroller engaged in racist behavior. She had made racist and crude remarks towards Black workers and network executives ignored the concerns.

A third worker named Monica Douglass said that Slater questioned her inappropriately about her personal life and mocked her and fellow Black employees. She had breast cancer and lost a side of her breast.removed. Slater called her "one-boobed girl" and kicked her in the butt while walking down the hall.

One familiar face on the network is Kelly Wright. He is currently on the network and he joined the lawsuit. He said that washed up conservative agitator Bill O'Reilly would never allow him on The O'Reilly Factor to discuss positive stories about Black people. That includes Black protesters outraged over gun violence, rappers, then president Barack Obama and Black Lives Matter.

O'Reilly scoffed at the notion of positive stories in the Black community. He said he better dial up Ailes and Bill Shine. Shine and Jack Abernathy are the current co-presidents of Fox News.

O'Reilly said that Wright should "offer to sign the national anthem at Fox News Town Halls."

Wright was once on the seat at Fox & Friends Weekend when he was replaced with a White anchor.

Despite Wright's outstanding performance and because he is Black, Wright had been effectively sidelined and asked to perform the role of a "Jim Crow" -- the racist caricature of a Black entertainer.

Slater also said some pretty foul shit about Black employees.

Slater would make employees say "ask" and "mother" and asked for them to pronounce them correctly. When some of the workers addressed Donald J. Trump's travel ban, Slater said "Who is going to Africa?"

Julie Roginsky also field a sexual harassment lawsuit against Ailes and Shine. She said that she faced retaliation for refusing sexual advances from Ailes.

Accounting director Tammy Efinger was ousted recently. She was one of the workers who ordered a woman to "fight" a Black employee for amusement.

Ailes would be extremely nervous around Black, Brown and Muslim employees. He would target Musfiq Rahman, a Bangladeshi payroll employee who he believes was a sympathizer to al Qaeda.

He also got really angry at Rahman when he accidently walked into the office without permission.

Ailes using the Fox News budget built a "barrier wall" to prevent anyone from seeing inside his office. Ailes grew paranoid about him. He said that he ordered the construction of the barrier wall to prevent "dark-skinned employees, especially males who could be mistaken for being Middle-Eastern descent" from entering his office unexpectedly.

Shine is on the ropes right now. James, Lachlan and papa Rupert Murdoch are considering a "clean house." Shine is close to being loaded inside the cannon. He could be fired out of it soon.

Many of the complaints alleged that non-White workers had to have a "brownnoser" guide them to the executive floor of Fox News. They had to be chaperoned to the top.

For years, Fox News lead the way in cable news. It's unapologetic, often brash and competitiveness has finally reached a boiling point.

The next move is to target advertisers of Fox News. The network relishes in promoting hate, sexism, and bigotry. 

Hit them in their wallets. 

Take down Bill Shine, Steve Doocy, Brian Kilmeade, Jeanine Pirro, Tucker Carlson, Michelle Malkin, Mark Levin, Jesse Watters, Bob Beckel, Greg Gutfeld, Neil Cavuto, Alex Jones, Joseph Paul Watson, The Drudge Report, The Gateway Pundit, Stuart Varney, Eric Bolling and Sean "Softball" Hannity.

If it wasn't for one of their own, Fox News wouldn't be in this mess.

For years, we complained about the racism, sexism, Islamophobia, the homophobia, and the constant disrespect towards the Obama family.

Advertisers continued to keep Fox News profitable because of their niche.

A bunch of angry old White men, a couch loaded with White women in skimpy skirts and heels, uber-patriotic themes and someone they can demonize was the formula for Fox News.

But like all things, success has an end.

Could Donald J. Trump's favorite channel be on the verge of a collapse of its own hate?
