Entertainment Studios Network CEO Byron Allen is heading back to court. On Wednesday, Allen filed a lawsuit against Charter Communications for allegedly engaging in racial discrimination in contracting against 100 percent African American-owned media, and against the Federal Communications Commission for approving mega-media mergers, such as Comcast/NBCUniversal, that allegedly discriminate against African American-owned media. “President Obama and the Democratic Party have completely excluded the African-American community when it comes to economic inclusion,” said Allen. “Everyone talks about diversity, but diversity in Hollywood and the media starts with ownership.
