Tonight Show Racial Lawsuit Challenges NBC's Treatment of Brokaw & Lauer
TMZ ^ | 5/7/18

Two white cameramen who are suing NBC -- claiming the network is racist -- allege the network has a pattern of protecting itself and sweeping misconduct under the rug ... and they are pointing to the Tom Brokaw and Matt Lauer cases.

Kurt Decker and Michael Cimino were cameramen on 'The Tonight Show' with Jimmy Fallon, until they got fired for receiving racist text messages from a 'Tonight Show' stagehand. They claim they were singled out by Questlove, the band leader, who protected a black NBC employee who also received the text message, but allegedly told NBC bigwigs to fire the 2 white cameramen.

Questlove is a huge racist - I can totally believe he would set up white staff for sabotage. So tacky to get lower level employees fired.

If it wasn’t for double standards, they would have none.

All you Comcast subscribers should switch if possible.

NBC is Comcast.

Soon, the children will be killing and eating their teachers. What a glorious peoples’ cultural revolution, just like Uncle Mao said it would be.

The only interesting member of The Roots is that person who makes the sad faces for Jimmy. I think he plays a piano; he seems like he actually has a sense of humor.. I can’t stand Questlove, who seems bitter and angry.

Talk about having the weight of the world on your shoulders.

Okay now I’m thinking about Jesus. Time to get to sleep. LOL!
