Legendary TV talk show host Byron Allen went on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” Sunday to discuss his ongoing racial discrimination lawsuit against Comcast and Al Sharpton.
He called Sharpton a “black pawn” perpetuating “financial genocide” on the black community, and bashed President Barack Obama for protecting donors that discriminate against blacks.
ALLEN: Al Sharpton is not important. He’s nothing more than a black pawn in a very sophisticated white economic chess game. He’s being used by his white masters at Comcast and AT&T. He just needs to shut up and get in the bleachers. What we have to do is get the corporations to understand you must include African-American owned media. We have to stop the financial genocide against the black community.
HOST BRIAN STELTER: You understand how offensive this sounds to someone like Al Sharpton.
