It looks like one guy is fed up with Al Sharpton’s race extortion of American corporations, and he’s going to court to try to horn in on Sharpton’s racket. Byron Allen has been an entertainer for decades, and he says that Al Sharpton is taking money away from legitimate businessmen like himself who deserve the ad revenue more than he does.
And when he want on CNN to defend his lawsuit, he did not pull any punches!
Watch the interview below:
Allen even went after Obama for his support of Al Sharpton, telling him to “do the right thing.”
More about the lawsuit from the Washington Post:
A lawsuit against Comcast, Time Warner Cable Inc., Rev. Al Sharpton and the NAACP alleges that the media companies discriminated against black-owned businesses and paid activists like Sharpton to “whitewash” its practices. The complaint alleges that Comcast gave large donations to Sharpton, the NAACP and other civil rights groups to make it appear that the cable company was promoting diversity, even while it was failing to follow through on a promise to do so.
The lawsuit, seeking $20 billion, was filed in Los Angeles federal court Friday by Entertainment Studios, a television company founded by black producer and comedian Byron Allen and the National Association of African-American Owned Media (NAAAOM). The complaint, which comes as regulators mull a $45-billion merger between Comcast and TWC, alleges that Comcast has refused to do business with Allen and other black media executives.
“Comcast has engaged in, and is engaging in, pernicious, intentional racial discrimination in contracting,” it reads. Whether or not it gets anywhere is another question. Anyone can file a lawsuit alleging anything and claiming any amount of money.
If only more African Americans wised up to Al Sharpton’s shakedown scam, his degenerate kingdom would collapse. As it is, he can only demand money from corporations because he puts himself out as a representative of the black community. The more people begin to denounce the scam artist, the less likely he’s going to be able to continue profiting off of the “white guilt” he loves to accuse America of.
