Tezlyn Figaro, who was fired by the pro-Bernie Sanders-group of Our Revolution, tells her side of the story on ‘Fox & friends.’

A former Bernie Sanders campaign employee racial discrimination lawsuit against the pro-Sanders group, Our Revolution has been filed.

On “Fox & Friends” Monday, Tezlyn Figaro, served as the Director for racial justice issues, the Sanders campaign in 2016, said she and others were “dealing for years with issues of racism” by the people, for the Vermont senator.

“I’m not saying that he himself is racist, but its movement is. There is a reason why no-one from the 2016 black outreach Department there is working for Senator Sanders,” she said.

Figaro said it was “important to [her]” to the Federal lawsuit, you set your charges and what you experienced in the year 2016.

Host Steve Doocy pointed to reports last spring, said Figaro was fired in Our Revolution for offensive comments about immigrants.

Figaro denied that was the case, because she was fired “because of the black reach” and disagreements about their advocacy on behalf of imprisoned African-Americans. She threw Lucy Flores — who has accused former Vice-President, Joe Biden, the inappropriate — touch of pressure on the story to media, including Political.

She said she was accused of anti-immigrant, because her appearances on Fox News and a remark you made, about immigrants, benefits, the Americans are not always.

Doocy said, the show reached a Sanders campaign and Our Revolution, but have received no response.

“Show us that black lives are really important, instead of just in a stump-speech,” she said.
