Revolt Network CEO Accused of Racism


Former Revolt employees claim Roma Khanna, the CEO of Sean 'Diddy' Combs TV network is racist...

From Page Six
The ex-employee wrote to Revolt’s board “from a place of genuine concern on behalf of myself, as a young, educated black woman, for the people currently employed at Revolt who are fearful of losing their jobs, and in an attempt to preserve the reputation and perception of this company.”
In a bombshell letter, she alleged, “I’ve witnessed Roma say that black women intimidate her,” and that at a May brainstorming session for the Revolt Music Conference, when it was suggested that rapper Meek Mill host a talk on prison reform, “Roma responded, ‘Maybe the conversation isn’t about prison reform, maybe it’s about how to stay out of jail, black boy.’ ”
The memo adds, “In my own discomfort, I spoke up, saying that her comment was not only insulting but would also be disrespectful to Meek as he’s not a ‘boy’ . . . She then proceeded to propose . . . ‘Maybe that’s it . . . Maybe it’s a conversation on how not to be black.’ ”
An insider told us: “When we heard about this, two and a half weeks ago, the minute that letter was received, it was handled immediately and sent to an outside source to investigate.”
The letter also alleged: “Roma let 30 percent of the Revolt staff go for restructuring, and 99 percent [of those] are African-American.”
Khanna has Diddy’s full support.
The music mogul told us: “This story is inaccurate. We are a black-owned and -operated network and we have a zero-tolerance policy for discrimination of any kind. Revolt is led by a woman of color who is expected to uphold the same standards that I hold for all of my companies. After an extensive review led by outside counsel, there were no findings of deliberate misconduct. At this time, Roma Khanna will remain as CEO of Revolt.”
He added of the cuts: “Any suggestion that any company of mine negatively targets African-Americans is absurd and offensive.”

Just because she is a WOC does not mean she can't be prejudiced towards blacks.

I fucking hate didly. "I'm offended that you're offended that I did something offensive", sounds like every alt-right MAGA Trump supporter I hear.

Why is she .... Nevermind

She looks just like... wait a minute, is that Nikki Haley? Or she's got a cousin.
I'm kinda tired of these Hindus claiming to be colored folks when convenient but are the first ones to throw Africans and African diaspora people under the bus.

That POC term should be thrown away..too ambiguous.

Soooo.... She's wrong for suggesting that we, as African Amercans, spend less energy on making prison a tolerable place, and more on teaching our sons how to avoid being there in the first place???!!!...Why that's crazy talk!!!
How dare she???! What the hell was she thinking??!!


Just because the truth may hurt, doesnt mean its racist, and putting a pretty bow on prison isnt gonna change the fact that we still haven't even figured out how to keep so many of ours away from criminal mindsets.

Lets ask Meek to change the tone of the speech to "Lets not give them anything to build a case against us with in the first place..."

And lets see if our prison numbers decrease just a little bit (since every black person isnt framed every time)

I know common sense isnt always common, but tackling an issue at its genesis generally makes more sense.

I’ll bet if she were hiring for the position she has now, Diddy wouldn’t even be a consideration. She would hire some Punjab or a straight up white person. Dumb negroes stay defending ANYBODY but their own.

Most Indian women i worked with disliked educated black women, I have had my share of dealing with them, one darker than me who gave me the most drama.

@1247.... Or BLAMING e but themselves.


Its always some other race's fault for trying to "hold us down"... yet black on black crime accounts for over 80% of our prison convictions. Wake up brotha/sista. Puffy not gettin her job has little to do with that.

So stop tryna find blame elsewhere for once and address the problems we ourselves are perpetuating. Slavery caused it, but now its up to US to end it!

Jeez..smh.

@1257, Im sorry, but I have to disagree. Most of the issues I've had have been with black women supervisors/managers... My own damn kind. Give a sista a lil power and she expects you to kiss her ass just to keep ur job. Not unlike white women. My best experiences have been with male bosses, who dont tend to want drama or try to micromanage like women have in my experience.

Same here @1:15. It's crazy out here.

all his black excellence rhetoric and he didn't give that position to a Black woman? didd like most pro black excellence men are really just for black men. just because she's a "woman of color" doesn't mean she can't be anti-Black. your company is not 100% black owned if it's being run by a non black. he is an airhead.and she's most likely a racist.

Idgaf about alk that Puerto Rican/Dominican beef they got going on and I'm not gonna go out my way to be like umm I'm black but they goin put some speck on my name. Disrespectful motherfuckers. Why is the concept so hard do your work and go the fuck home?
People do the most to fill up their 8 hours with anything EXCEPT what their position entitles.

But let a white person come by and its total formation Hi! Good Morning! Oh Thank You!
