    Diversity rating for banks? Maxine the extortionist

    "We need to change it and we need to change it right away. The excuse that we can’t find any, that’s what I’m hearing from some of you, that’s not acceptable," Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, said at a Wednesday hearing held by the subcommittee. "When you have power, you have to use it. We have the power. Regulations may be the thing to do. I think the carrot was a good idea, but after having heard some things today, I think we have to move to the stick, that’s regulations.”

    Waters was under investigation for nearly three years over whether she used her position on the House Financial Services Committee to get officials to meet with OneUnited Bank and also help deliver $12 million in funds from the Troubled Asset Relief Program to the bank. Her husband had been a director at the bank and held hundreds of thousands of dollars of stock in the company, and several of the bank’s executives had cut campaign checks to her. In 2012, the House Ethics Committee cleared Waters of any wrongdoing after a hugely controversial probe.

    Isn't one of the states, California I think, trying to tell corporations they have to have certain people on their boards of directors. For example union members and diversity reps?

    In California's case I can see corporations moving their headquarters out of California. It would be easy enough for a corporation to say they are headquartered in what ever state is most conducive to their operations. While still having people in California. There is a reason most every credit card company is chartered in Delaware.

      They wold be better off to create an Office of Ethics with broad investigative and punishment powers to remove people like this from the government entirely.

        Well, if banks are forced to lend on the basis of race rather than credit standing, ability to pay, etc., expect them to become more like payday loan companies PDQ or to just stop making personal loans all together.

          Would this "Diversity and Inclusion officer" be like the Commissars the Soviets assigned to military units to ensure "loyalty".

                Without a 'gender advisor', how would any given soldier know what gender it was on any given day in order to dress appropriately?

                    While this isn't the right solution, there's definitely a problem here.

                    A man is suing a Michigan bank for racial discrimination after he says the staff refused to deposit settlement checks from another racial discrimination case and called police on him.

                    “Something else was afoot here,” the man’s attorney, Deborah Gordon, told CNN affiliate WXYZ. “And in my opinion there’s only one thing: banking while black”

                    Sauntore Thomas, a 44-year-old African-American man, went to a TCF Bank branch Tuesday to open a savings account and deposit checks from the settlement in a recent racial discrimination case against his former employer, his complaint says. He already had a checking account at the bank.

                    A bank employee “immediately appeared suspicious,” the complaint said.

                    “How did you get this money?” the employee asked, according to the complaint.

                    The problem is, you can't regulate the racism out of them.

                    Instead of suing, forcing regulations, etc, just bank at black institutions instead. There are at least a couple in California.

                      I don't see it as diversity or race, Rep. Maxine Waters, D-CA is displaying her power along with Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, who clearly states, "When you have power, you have to use it. We have the power." They are using threats of regulation to force business to agree to their demands or else...extortion

                      What payoffs might go to campaign funding, charities contribution etc.
