Fox News Is Now Being Sued For Racial Discrimination And Harassment
Fox News anchor Kelly Wright has joined 12 other current and former employees, saying that they were targeted and harassed for years because of their skin color.
By Brianna Sacks

Fox News anchor and reporter Kelly Wright has joined 12 other current and former employees in a lawsuit against the network, claiming they endured repeated racial discrimination and harassment.

The embattled network has been trying to repair its image after recently firing its top-rated host Bill O'Reilly and former chief Roger Ailes over sexual harassment claims, both of whom have vehemently denied the allegations.

Wright, who has worked at Fox since 2003, says he was sidelined and denied opportunities for advancement because he is black, and accused the network of “plantation-style management,” according to the suit.

The veteran anchor said O’Reilly repeatedly refused to allow him on his show to discuss race relations in America, and in one instance, shunned Wright’s series focusing on the racial divide in Ferguson, Missouri, because it painted “blacks in too positive a light.”

Wright also claims that Bill Shine, the network’s co-president, obsessively focused on his skin color, often asking him “how do you think white viewers look at you?” He said he repeatedly flagged the treatment to senior Fox News executives, who did nothing.

The network did not immediately respond to a BuzzFeed News request for comment.

In the suit filed Tuesday, the twelve other current and former Fox News employees detail instances where they were allegedly targeted because of the color of their skin. Musfiq Rahman, who previously worked in the payroll department, claims that he was banned from the second floor of the network’s New York City headquarters after mistakenly walking into the office of former Fox News chairman Roger Ailes.

“The fallout for Mr. Rahman’s ‘mistake’ was swift and severe,” the lawsuit alleges. “Ailes was furious and his paranoia about being attacked came to the forefront. That same day, Ailes ordered that a wall be constructed immediately in his personal office to act as a barrier to entry.”

The next day, Rahman, who is described as a “dark-skinned Bangladeshi,” and a number of Black employees in the Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable Departments, had their security passes to the second floor revoked, the suit claims.

Tichaona Brown and Tabrese Wright, two former black employees, said they experienced “horrific discrimination at the hands" of Fox’s former comptroller Judith Slater. The network vowed that it fired Slater on Feb. 28 after learning of the allegations.

The two women claim Slater would target them and other black employees with racist comments, like inquiring if all three of Wright’s children were fathered by the same man, asking “Why are all black men women-beaters?,” and forcing black employees to practice saying certain words correctly in front of white employees, the complaint says.

“When it comes to racial discrimination, 21st Century Fox has been operating as if it should be called 18th Century Fox,” Douglas Wigdor and Jeanne Christensen, who are representing the 13 plaintiffs, said in a statement Tuesday.

“If 21st Century Fox choses to defend the indefensible–systemic race discrimination—we will utilize our collective efforts and resources to hold those responsible for these egregious discriminatory acts before a Bronx jury,” the attorneys said.

|| I need to stop saying “lowkey” so much because I’ve been doing it a lot lately, but anyone who knows me knows I don’t lowkey anything. I’m highkey. I put my heart and soul in everything. It’s exhausting. I’m exhausted. When’s bedtime?

Platypus venom paves way to possible diabetes treatment - BBC News
Australian researchers say platypus venom could pave the way for new type 2 diabetes treatments.

“The males of the extraordinary semi-aquatic mammal - one of the only kind to lay eggs - have venomous spurs on the heels of their hind feet. The poison is used to ward off adversaries. But scientists at the University of Adelaide have discovered it contains a hormone that could help treat diabetes. Known as GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1), it is also found in humans and other animals, where it promotes insulin release, lowering blood glucose levels. But it normally degrades very quickly. Not for the duck-billed bottom feeders though. Or for echidnas, also known as spiny anteaters - another iconic Australian species found to carry the unusual hormone. Both produce a long-lasting form of it, offering the tantalising prospect of creating something similar for human diabetes sufferers.”

Ah, TOP getting *at least* two more weeks of inpatient psychiatric treatment is such good news. That gives us reason to believe they're working hard to treat the root causes of his issues instead of filling him with meds. I'm now hopeful that he's getting a proper diagnosis and a sustainable long-term treatment plan. The past 12 days were exhausting, I can't imagine how his loved ones must feel and how strong they've had to be. I'm ready to start a religion for Mama Choi. What an amazing woman.

I know! if he was only in there a couple of days and then he went home i’d probably be super concerned. But it’s showing exactly how you said. It’s proof they’re trying to get down to the bottom of everything. He deserves it. I hope he’s doing better.

Yaaaay, Yoosung day!!! I'm gonna request something our poor floofy baby is gonna have to deal with someday: one of the pets in his care dying/needing to be euthanized. Aaaaaangst~

(。•́︿•̀。) Why do you want to hurt me?


- At first, he refused to believe it. There was a brief moment where the puppy was doing well, where it even managed a playful bark once. He’s dead set on figuring out why it was okay for that brief amount of time- What medicine did they use? Did it get sick with something else??

- So for a couple of nights, he’s running on just coffee and determination, but before he can find a new treatment, he gets the news that it’s not going to make it into the next day.

- On the phone he just sounds exhausted, but when he hangs up he’s looking for you and burying his face against your shoulder. He seems a bit calm, just wrapping his arms around you and squeezing you tight, but he slowly starts shaking, and then he’s outright sobbing

- “What am I going to say to that little girl? I promised her I would- I just. I promised-”

- He doesn’t sleep again that night. He’s trying his best to stop crying, stop being so emotional, but then he imagines the young owner and starts crying again.

- In the morning he’s just a zombie. Two nights worth of bags under his eyes, hand barely holding onto the coffee mug you bought him a few months ago. He doesn’t eat breakfast, but he manages a small smile when you kiss him goodbye.

- And at work he’s stressed. He had a nurse put the puppy down overnight, and he’s just waiting for that little girl and the mother to come in.

- When she does, the mom and the girl take one look at him and realize that the puppy didn’t make it. He can’t even get the words out- He’s never had to explain this situation. All of the animals under his care had lived before this one.

- Of course the girl cries, and it’s hard for him not to either. Especially when she gets mad at him. He just doesn’t know how to handle the situation, and eventually the girls mom takes her away, promising to try and take her somewhere to cheer her up.

- Yoosung gets to sleep that night, but for the next few days he’s depressed. No LOLOL, cute animals, or you can even cheer him up. And for a bit, you get legitimately concerned. 

- Then one day he comes home with a soft smile. When you question it, he tells you about the little girl coming back in. Apparently, the little girl felt pretty bad for getting mad at him and came to apologize. The thing he’s happy the most, though, is that she said it wasn’t his fault. That she knew he tried his best. 

- It’s a bit of a relief that her visit cheers him up, but you secretly try to plan again for this in the future, even if he doesn’t want to accept that it may happen again.

Researchers are on the way to treating, even curing cystic fibrosis

Cystic fibrosis, a hereditary disorder that attacks your lungs and digestive system with a massive buildup of mucus, is one of the most frequent rare diseases. We know that buildup is caused by a mutation in the body’s cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator, which makes the body terrible at creating the protein it needs to move water and salt out of its cells — hence the gnarly buildup. And so far, there’s no cure for the disease — but scientists just announced a major breakthrough.

More than half of U.S. adults with mental illness aren’t getting treated

According to Mental Health America’s recently released annual assessment, about 20% of U.S. adults — or 43.7 million people — have a mental health condition of some kind — and less than half of them are receiving the care they need. Among children and adolescents, the news is worse.

President Obama pledges $500 million to mental health treatment

Besides closing the gun show loophole, President Obama announced another progressive gun control measure. He vowed to put $500 million toward improving mental health access and treatment across the country. This effort could do more than just prevent mass murders.

On a related note, the President had the perfect response to critics who say he doesn’t understand the Second Amendment.

Of all of the fandoms I have been in, from the mega Superwholock to the niche Sentinel, the LazyTown fandom has been one of my favourites. It brought together great talent from the likes of MrMrMANGOHEAD and countless others of youtube, tumblr, facebook etc. who first spread wide awareness of our beloved Stefan Karl’s cancer treatments.

The Live Stream is what really ignited the LazyTown fandom on tumblr. We Are Number One brought people together in a frankly unexpected way. Many involved were childhood fans, some were parents and others, like me, had no knowledge of the show. Together, we watched, imagined, created, memed and laughed together all the while keeping Stefan in our minds.

Bernie Sanders calls for a mental health “revolution” at the debate

In any given year, some 10 million Americans experience “serious mental illness … that substantially interferes with or limits one or more major life activities." Hours after Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders announced his single-payer health care plan Sunday, he called for a mental health revolution at the NBC/YouTube Democratic debate. How he plans to do it.

any psychiatrist (or any doctor in general, for that matter) who is against you researching either your own disorder or possible disorders that could explain some symptoms you’re having is bad news. any psychiatrist that is against you finding supportive communities for the disorders you have or think you may have is bad news. any psychiatrist that tells you not to look up the side effects of your medication or alternative medications, therapies, or treatments is bad news. 

doctors like this want to keep you in the dark so they can control you; this is common practice in cases of medical/psychiatric abuse. if it’s possible and safe to do so, find a doctor who sees themselves as a tool to help you live your best life, not as the dictator of your life.

Nancy Reagan refused to help dying Rock Hudson get Aids treatment
Film star’s appeal to US first lady, an old friend, was rejected because Aids was seen as gay disease, say critics of administration’s record
By Alexandra Topping

The only thing worth remembering about Nancy Reagan: She and her husband stood by and intentionally let thousands of people die rather than acting swiftly to address the AIDS epidemic. 

Anorexia // Teen Wolf {w/ a little Brett/OC}

Serious note here guys, anorexia and depression is not a topic to make fun off. It’s a real thing, and it causes lives to be taken. If you know anyone that’s anorexic or depressed {or you are} or looks oddly skinny, don’t keep to yourself. You might just save a life by saying something. 

I was watching CyberBully and after I finished I listened to the song Echo by Jason Walker & How to Save a Life by The Fray and it inspired me to write this.

My character in this imagine will have a name, Jessie Blue. It’s only one part, but I’ll try and make it as long as possible. Maybe I’ll do a part two, idk if requested then I will.

This is an AU, so most of the characters will be alive and some will still be here. {Allison, Aiden, Ethan, Isaac and Peter won’t be so evil here.} There is no Theo here.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver pretty much nails the television news media’s treatment of the climate change (non)debate.

Come for the Bill Nye cameo, stay for the overwhelming weight of scientific evidence and universal consensus showing that man-made climate change is real and happening now.

Another way to sum up the problem with how climate change science is represented by the news: We have to tune in to comedy shows to get a straight look at the facts.
