CNN is under fire after they decided to discuss the ethnicity of the new royal baby. “How black will the royal baby be?” asked a writer-producer for the network. Well, immediately the outcry and criticism of CNN came in fast and furious, with Hollywood figures and left-wing activists all torching the “fake news” network. You’ll love this.
Things turned ugly on social media for CNN after the networked pondered how black the newborn royal baby will be. The network published an analysis piece on its website addressing mixed-race “myths” after Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, gave birth to her first child.
The subhead on the article read, “How black will the Royal baby be?” The article, written by CNN enterprise writer and producer John Blake, addressed recent articles describing Markle and Prince Harry’s child as the very first Afro-American child born into the English monarchy.
However, Meghan Markle didn’t identify as African-American when she was working as an actress. She’s half-black, with a Caucasian father and African-American mother. Markle billed herself as a Caucasian who could play “Latina” roles. It wasn’t until she got engaged to Prince Harry that she started to call herself bi-racial.
“Imagine a child born to a couple like the Duke and Duchess, and no one obsesses over their racial mixture, or how white or black they look. Imagine if that child was born with dark skin, a wide nose, and kinky hair — and people would still call that child ‘gorgeous,’” Blake wrote. “All that would matter is that the child has two parents who love him or her. That’s the kind of fairy tale I’m waiting for.”
“Let’s not turn this child into another ‘Great Mixed-Race Hope,'” Blake pleaded.
Blake is playing the race card and talking in highly leftist politically correct terms. In 2019, people aren’t thinking about race the way these rabid leftists are, and it’s quite ironic that Blake got his clock cleaned by the very people he was trying so hard to impress with his ridiculous article.
“CNN needs more people of color working in the executive, decision-making ranks. Obviously,” former CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien said.

“My God, @CNN just legitimately asked ‘How black will the royal baby be?’ **and 100% unironically warned** ‘commentators who reinforce dangerous racist stereotyped are totally unaware of the damage.’” said Virginia Democratic state senate candidate Qasim Rashid.

“Hey Jeff Zucker, Amy Entelis, Ken Jautz and the @CNN leadership team. This is why [the National Association of Black Journalists] has called y’all out on no Black executives. This is one of the dumbest headlines this year. WTF?!” former CNN contributor Roland Martin fumed at CNN head Zucker.

“I had not even thought of this baby as ‘black’ until I read your piece. And I still don’t. It’s just a baby. It will be cute like all babies, whatever colour they are. I really don’t think your piece is remotely helpful,” tweeted writer Frances Coppola.
tbh I had not even thought of this baby as "black" until I read your piece. And I still don't. It's just a baby. It will be cute like all babies, whatever colour they are. I really don't think your piece is remotely helpful.

This is what happens when you have a mindset that everything is about race. You end up looking like a complete jackass and all of your good buddies turn on you. And making it really rich, of course, is that this is CNN.
CNN decided to go off the rails and become an arm of the Democratic National Committee during the 2016 election. Since then, they have earned the moniker “fake news” for their highly biased reporting on President Donald Trump.
They have outright lied many times about the Commander in Chief and have never apologized to him and the country for getting the entire Russia hoax all wrong. CNN is a joke thanks to Jeff Zucker, the guy who heads CNN and who is an avid Trump-hater.
Now, with this ridiculous article on how black will the royal baby be, Zucker and his cohorts are finding out why their ratings are in the toilet and why Americans don’t trust a damn word they say.
