Lawsuit: Black Fox News Anchor Plays the Race Card

Kelly Wright? Who dat?

Excerpt from WSJ.com

An African-American on-air host for Fox News has joined a group of current and former employees suing the cable channel and some of its senior executives for alleged racial discrimination.

Kelly Wright, who is a Saturday afternoon anchor for Fox News and a former co-host of the weekend edition of “Fox & Friends,” is one of 11 current and former employees seeking class action status for their lawsuit. Mr. Wright claims in the suit that his race has held him back at the channel and that he has been “asked to perform the role of a ‘ Jim Crow ’— the racist caricature of a Black entertainer.”

A 14-year Fox News veteran, Mr. Wright said he hasn’t been offered the same chances for advancement as his white colleagues and that he was “forced to endure many racist comments,” according to the complaint. He added it is a running joke among the cast and crew at Fox News that he would get more air time if “he dyed his hair blonde.”

The suit, which was originally filed in the New York State Supreme Court in Bronx County last month by two black women who worked in the payroll department at Fox News, has been amended to include 11 people. Aside from Mr. Wright, the rest of the plaintiffs are current and former employees at the channel who work in payroll and accounting.

  1. So first the news-cunts sue Fox and all of its talent. Now the AA niggers are suing Fox. By this time next year, Fox will be either bankrupt, or all of its on-air talent will be women and non-Caucasians. F*ck them.
