(NewsReady.com) – CNN is always quick to point out racism in places where there is none, but it turns out that the MSM network has its own issues in the Black vs. White department. Soledad O’Brien worked at CNN for over 10 years and she made a stunning claim about her time at the cable news channel over the weekend.
O’Brien says that a network executive told her that she could only have “the right kind” of black people on her show. What does that even mean??
CNN discouraged O’Brien from interviewing black radio host Roland Martin because he didn’t fit their idea of what an acceptable black person was. Instead, they wanted her to book people like New York Times columnist Charles M. Blow because he was “the right kind of black.”
Charles Blow, she told me, (also a frequent guest) was ‘the right kind of Black’.

Blow has since become a CNN contributor. He responded on Sunday to O’Brien’s tweet with an angry response of his own.
I don’t know how to take this “good negro” talk… https://t.co/WKdWSZCWoy

Martin also made a statement about the network’s racism problem. He told Blow that the internal racism that he encountered at CNN “would blow folks away.” He couldn’t believe the things that were being said about him behind closed doors.
CNN continually points the finger at others, but it seems that they need to be careful about living in a glass house and hurling stones. The hypocrites had no response to Fox News’ request for comment on this story.
