Omarosa: “there is a pattern” with black Apprentice candidates; says Tara is upset.
Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth is making headlines again, in advance of her Fear Factor appearance a week from Monday. She’s saying that black contestants on The Apprentice are unfairly portrayed. “Once you start looking at how all the black men are perceived as lazy and laid-back and nonaggressive, and all the black women are quite the opposite, I do think there is a pattern,” she said. Specifically, she said that a candidate on The Apprentice 3 “was kind of crying, saying, ‘They’re not showing me at all and I did all the right things.’ She’s well-behaved, well-spoken, she doesn’t argue with anybody, [but gets] absolutely no air time.” According to the AP, “She didn’t identify the woman, but a subsequent comment indicated she was referring to Tara.” Mark Burnett offered a gentle reply to Omarosa’s criticism, telling the New York Daily News: “The truth is, simply, there’s nothing I can say to Omarosa that could do more damage than her own big mouth. As the self-appointed spokesperson for African-Americans, maybe she should ask Kwame [Jackson] what he thinks. Because without her, he would have won ‘The Apprentice.’”
