Maxine Waters meets with CBS reps over lack of black 2020 reporters, demands racial quotas

Democrat congresswoman Maxine Waters met with CBS News representatives Tuesday to discuss what appears to be a plan to impose racial quotas on the 91-year-old news corporation.

The meeting occurred a day after the race-obsessed Democrat complained on Twitter about the network’s alleged lack of black reporters on its 2020 election campaign coverage team.

According to far-left Democrats like Waters and newly elected House representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the pursuit of racial justice mandates that certain racial quotas be met:

The radically far-left’s core contention seems to be that members of purportedly marginalized groups deserve to enjoy a certain level of representation in everything, including but not limited to in movies, in neighborhoodsat universities, at corporations and inside news rooms.

It’s unclear why, in the case of racial quotas for CBS, Waters and Ocasio-Cortez appear to only be concerned with black representation. What about Indians, Asians and Hispanics?

And what about other underrepresented groups such as those with physical handicaps and those with mental afflictions (including autism). Is race all that matters? Apparently so, according to Waters, Ocasio-Cortez and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.

“CBS News’ decision to not include Black reporters on their 2020 Election news team further proves the voting power and voices of Black America continue to be undervalued,” the NAACP said in a statement released Tuesday afternoon, hours before the California congresswoman’s meeting.

“As the voting bloc that will most certainly determine the direction of this country in the upcoming election, it is vital any and all media outlets have a diverse newsroom, including individuals of color in decision making positions to speak to and address the issues and concerns directly impacting the Black community.”

“Representation matters and the media needs our coverage on the issues to drive the discussion.”

It’s unclear why the NAACP believes votes from black Americans will have a greater impact on the next election than votes from whites, Asians, Hispanics and other racial/ethnic groups.


This desire for racial quotas speaks to a growing belief among the far-left that everything — the makeup of government, of schools, of newsroom, etc. — should revolve around race.

It’s a surprising belief given that leftists portray themselves champions of racial justice. Yet their beliefs sharply belie those of the greatest civil rights leader in American history, Martin Luther King Jr.

Prior to his assassination in 1968, MLK spoke of a dream of a future world where his childen would be judged by the content of their character, not the color of their skin.


Fifty-one years later, this fundamental message appears entirely lost on the left. Perhaps then it’s time for a reminder? Social media users certainly believe so.


Will Waters and her peers listen, though? Probably not, given as one of the most telltale hallmarks of ignorance is an aversion to truth and an unwillingness to open ones ears and learn.
