Outgoing CNN pundit Roland Martin said on Thursday that executives who were uncomfortable with hiring black people as hosts had held back his rise at the network.

Homophobic fat asshole with few ideas and a big mouth.

Well, I don't know if he's right or wrong about the inner workings of CNN, but the mystery of how Anderson Cooper remains employed with bottom basement ratings does make you wonder.

There are a lot of barriers to success when you are a minority. There is no doubt about that. I believe him.

He's an asshole, but it is curious how CNN is purging its minorities while giving Anderson Cooper his 5,000th attempt at having a successful show. MSNBC is just as bad.

Martin very likely has a point.

However, if CNN decided to purge all of the gays from the channel and one of them piped up about, Martin would be the first to accuse them of asking for special treatment.

Yes, the lesbian, black man, fat man, and man who looks like a girl are all about white male power.

You forgot the black woman

Of course he's right, have you seen the tripe at CNN lately?

Is Don Lemon the only black anchor left?

For now, R10.

Roland Martin makes my skin crawl. He's so obviously gay - hence the homophobia.

The main thing holding Mr. Martin back is his face. Good god is he trolly

Who wants to see that coming at them all the time? Even with good news?

by Anonymousreply 1303/30/2013

He's very arrogant.

by Anonymousreply 1403/30/2013

Leave it to that homophobic, rancid pos to play the race card. He can now fall back on he and his wife's gay reparative therapy program.

This douche should have gotten fired after his homophobic tweets. Hell, he shouldn't have even been hired in the first place due to his ex-gay ministry.

by Anonymousreply 1503/30/2013

Does he not understand that CNN cut him a break and didn't fire him over his homophobic twitter breakdown? This guy is a fat fuck moron. Jon Stewart made fun of him all the time.

by Anonymousreply 1603/30/2013

I think he's still with ESPN. I don't understand how he could have a contract with CNN and rival ABC/ESPN.

by Anonymousreply 1703/30/2013

He's right. CNN is very white and getting whiter and more conservative.

by Anonymousreply 1803/30/2013

Roland has a weekly talk show on TV ONE, a black oriented channel.

[ He's right. CNN is very white and is getting whiter and more conservative. ]

And as their ratings continue to decrease. It's like watching a blind man walk into a wall over and over again expecting a different result. You can't help but snicker.

Fat, ugly and arrogant. What am I missing?

That, and the idiocy that regularly escapes from his mouth.

Roland Martin is a fat, whiny, homophobic idiot. Bye, Bye Roland.

He's a POS and has a vagina mouth.

Get going, Roland. You were conservative. Dumb fat fuck.

Boo-hoo, r25. Let's hire black homophobic bigots because they're black.

by Anonymousreply 2703/31/2013

There are many reasons to dislike Martin, whether one is a viewer or his employer. I'd avoid him no matter what his race is, simply because he's loud, inarticulate, seems to have no original thoughts, & never says anything intriguing.
