Dem Racist Credit Checks Be Dissin' De Brothuhs
One wonders what the blacks will find next to cry about, what excuse they will find to blame the white man for their own failings and poor character. Now they have now yet another excuse for their poor performance in life--"racist" credit checks, especially pre-employment.
The Christian Science Monitor reports that "Studies haven't found a link between poor credit and job performance, but more employers are checking, and minorities are getting squeezed. Insurers are slammed for checking, too."
(Okay, now wait for it--here comes the one individual example of alleged "discrimination." These kinds of articles generally follow a predictable pattern.)
"Lisa Bailey worked for five months at Harvard University as a temp entering donations into a database. When the university made the job a salaried position, Bailey, who is black, saw a chance to lift herself out of dead-end jobs. Bailey's superiors encouraged her to apply, she says, but turned her down after discovering her bad credit history."
(My guess, there was something else about this woman's work performance that was so bad they wanted her gone. Most large institutions jump at any chance to hire a black female in a white-collar position, since black women are affirmative action twofers.)
"Bailey, with her lawyer, has lodged a complaint against Harvard charging racial discrimination."
(My guess: there were previous threats of a lawsuit and hollering of "discrimination" if she didn't get what she wanted or if she didn't like the food in the cafeteria or whatever, so Harvard tried and failed to get rid of her without litigation. Everyone in this country is terrified of lawyers, but "Ms." Bailey may have overdone it.)
"The reason: Studies indicate that minorities are more likely to have bad credit."
(Could that be because minorities tend not to pay their bills?)
The CSM goes on to say "...Credit problems have not been shown to negatively affect job performance. Some privacy and minority advocates are now seeing credit as a civil-rights issue as minorities start to fight employers and insurers who base decisions on credit histories. Their effort could slow the near doubling in credit checks by employers in the past decade, which affects millions of Americans who are struggling with debt."
(I rather doubt that. Big Brother always grows, never backs off unless forcibly removed.)
"'It's definitely a civil-rights issue because of the growing use of credit reports and credit scores for hiring, renting an apartment, insurance and the fact that people of color have not been integrated into the credit-scoring system as much as traditional white middle-class America,' says Evan Hendricks, the author of Credit Scores & Credit Reports: How the System Really Works, What You Can Do.
So now we have another example of horrible, wicked white racism that must be banned and repressed, along with the hated "pizza redlining" where outfits like Domino's and Pizza Hut are required to send their white delivery drivers, some of them young women students, into deadly black areas on often bogus pizza runs, with the resulting body count. It appears that once more blacks are demanding to go to the head of the line, to be able to waltz into any company they want and get any job they want without even the basic formality of a background check.
Presumably pre-employment screening will continue to be okay for whites, including those who have serious credit problems and bankruptcies due to the skyrocketing costs of medical care and a loved one who was so inconsiderate as to get sick or hurt. Those guys with their bad credit won't get the job; the black who simply maxed out his or her credit card and never made any payments gets to stroll right into employment from now on.
America. We must kill it, before it kills us.
