New York—Wells Fargo CEO Charles Scharf apologized Wednesday for comments he made about the difficulty of finding qualified Black executives. Scharf said that "there is a very limited pool of Black talent to recruit from" in corporate America. The memo to employees was written in June, but became public this week. The comments and similar statements made in a Zoom meeting, reported by Reuters, led to an intense backlash in Washington and on social media.(Snip) Citigroup announced on the same day as Scharf's apology that it would direct $1 billion of the firm's capital toward closing the "racial wealth gap" in the United States.

Comments:

Scharf will deploy his golden parachute and drift away to a lavish retirement, poor boy.

What a pathetic jackwagon. First he stupidly tells the truth about minority qualifications. Second, he apologizes for telling the truth.

I really think CEO's would be better off if they shut their mouths. They say something, then have to say volumes more backing out of what they said. Just shut up and run your businesses. If you look at Wells Fargo, it is a mess, so apparently leadership is spending too much time talking, and not enough time running their businesses.

Coming to us from Woken Broken, NY. Those who really care can meet up on the corner of Walk & Don'tWalk, N.E., to cry and hold hands. I can remember when Wells Fargo was truly Big Ass Pete.

Its not the qualifications of a person but the color of their skin that matters. One wonders when the commissioner of the NFL and NBA will come out with 'diversity' quotas based on skin color.

I demand more racial equity in the NBA, NFL, and MLB! There must be more white talent out there, or are whites busy getting an education first and foremost for a real job.

And there lies the essential issue of reverse discrimination, to employees as well as corporations. White males executives need to compete against large pools of comparable talent for the very few jobs available to them after company EEO goals are met. Meanwhile, the requirements for the EEO executive are often that they are an EEO minority with a degree in the field, regardless of their suitability for the position. Most companies will hire them, based essentially on their availability, complexion, and meeting EEO requirements. Yes, there are talented people of all races and genders, but the executive advancement for Caucasian men, notwithstanding alumni cronyism, is far less likely due to the size of the qualified pool of talent available.

If Scharf is being criticized for saying that "there is a limited pool of Black talent to recruit from" then those who are criticizing him for this statement must believe the opposite..i.e that there is an abundant pool of black talent to recruit from and corporate America is too blinded and biased to hire these qualified black people. Am I missing something in the criticism of Scharf?

A couple were arrested after they were caught on camera assaulting two employees at a putting golf venue in Ohio on Wednesday night. A man and woman, Shaquan Foreman Antoin, 25, and Dekotha Arnold, 20, have been charged with assault and resisting arrest after the punchup at the location in Independence. The incident happened just before 11pm after Antoin's card declined. After settling his bill in cash, he then called a worker at the venue an obscenity. The employee subsequently told the pair that the manager would be brought and they would have to leave the venue as a result of their behavior,

In a play for Black votes, President Donald Trump vowed to designate the KKK—but also Antifa—'terrorist organizations,' he announced at an event in Atlanta Friday. The president will also increase capital to Black communities by nearly $500 billion, a figure first reported by Fox News. Trump will also push to make Juneteenth, the day slavery officially ended in the United States, a federal holiday. Trump made the promises with less than 40 days before the November presidential election as he spent Friday trying to firm up support with communities of color, who tend to vote heavily Democratic.

Paunchy former New Jersey governor Chris Christie once threatened to sit on Mike Bloomberg—during a bizarre, jealous rant involving the Queen of England. The asinine threat is alleged in former governor David Paterson’s dishy new memoir, “Black, Blind & in Charge.” It was July 8, 2010. Paterson was leading New York and Christie was the Garden State’s top exec as they awaited the arrival of Queen Elizabeth at Ground Zero, where the royal was to lay a wreath. Then-New York City Mayor Bloomberg had yet to arrive, and Christie was seething about the city honcho, Paterson recounts.

To “recycle” the dirty rubbers, Pham Thi Thanh Ngoc, 32, allegedly had roughly 1,000 of them delivered per month to the facility in Tan Uyen Town, where she cleaned and reshaped them, according to the Vietnam Insider. Pham, who rented the facility, remolded the jimmies with a wooden shaft to make them look fresh again—then placed them in new packaging, the local outlet reported.

Not that I don't think he'll be excellent.
