$50,000 & A Bucket of Chicken!

Byron Allen! Who is Byron Allen? You might ask. Well, he's just one of a hand full of "happy", "shiny", jealous negros who loves to complain, loves to be critical, and loves to pretend that he's something he's not. Allen has been around for about 30 years performing the occasional dance and shuffle on various TV shows, but he has NEVER done anything of note or substance. 
James Baldwin said it best,being white is more of a state of mind than it is a color. Byron Allen is living proof of this.

Byron Allen didn’t hold back when attacking Al Sharpton for his "shakedown scam", saying that he’s keeping money from going to legitimate black owned businesses like his.
He then went on to call  Sharpton “the least expensive negro” halfway through his CNN appearance, Allen brought race further into the discussion with this claim:
“Comcast don’t do business with real African-American-owned companies, just give him Sharpton $50,000 and a bucket of chicken and we’re good,” he told host Brian Stelter.

“Al Sharpton is not important,” Allen told Brian Stelter on CNN'S Reliable Resources on Sunday.  “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.

“Comcast has, in essence, created a ‘Jim Crow’ process with respect to licensing channels from 100 percent African American–owned media,” the suit reads, “Comcast has reserved a few spaces for 100 percent African American–owned media in the ‘back of the bus’ while the rest of the bus is occupied by white-owned media companies.”

Allen, continuing his censure on CNN, added, “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.”

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 billionwas filed in Los Angeles federal court Friday by Entertainment Studios A television company founded by 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. 

Byron Allen is nothing more than a bitter, attention-seeking wanna be who only filed a law suit in hopes of getting just a sliver of attention. 

Enjoy your 15 minutes Byron!!!
