Race-Baiting Obama Agency Guilty of Its Own ‘Racism’

Investor's Business Daily, March 12, 2014

Tired of being accused of racism-by-statistics by Obama’s new consumer agency, bankers have turned the tables, using the agency’s personnel data to expose its own racial bias and hypocrisy.

Since the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau was set up by the president as the new credit cop on the financial block, it’s used statistics showing racial differences in mortgage and car-loan terms to sue lenders for unintentional race bias.

To Obama’s credit cops, this is prima facie proof of discrimination, regardless of whether differing credit backgrounds easily explain such gaps (which they do). {snip}

But now CFPB has been hoisted by its own statistical petard, guilty of its own racial disparities.

According to confidential internal stats obtained by the American Banker, “CFPB managers show a pattern of ranking white employees distinctly better than minorities in performance reviews used to grant raises and issue bonuses.”

In fact, the agency’s own 2013 data show that whites were twice as likely as African-Americans to receive the CFPB’s highest job performance grade of “5.” Over 20% of white staffers got top ratings—and were held up as “role models”—compared with just 10.5% of blacks.

{snip}.

But if CFPB had ID’d such a stark disparity in lending outcomes, it wouldn’t hesitate to condemn bank policies as discriminatory and refer the racist “predator” to Attorney General Eric Holder for civil-rights prosecution and public shaming.

The double standard is shocking.

Now that the administration sees that racial disparities can be just as easily identified within the ranks of its own agencies, maybe it will think twice about forging ahead with its despicable “disparate impact” witch hunt.

    All IBD has done is paint a target on the backs of white CFPB employees, not really very helpful.

    Yeah, I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for Obama, Holder, or any Liberal judge to scrap their plans of finding laws and practices that have a disparate impact as discriminatory and unconstitutional. Equal outcomes among the different races is the Liberal goal, and they’re not about to let silly little things like truth, reality, and at times being hypocritical get in their way.

    It’s about time that they exposed the traitors and their treason. Every White should be awakened to the reality of race and to our cause. We have little time left.

  • Now black government employees, pretty much the bottom of the barrel as workers, will be suing the government, screaming “Discrimination!” Expect even more AA in government jobs. The craziness never stops, but at least tens and tens of millions know it’s crazy.

  • JSS

    The truth is no defense. The narrative of White villainy and racism is all that matters and that won’t change until Whites rediscover pride and testicular fortitude again.

  • People who believe in diversity don’t believe in it for its own sake. It’s a political weapon they wield for their own power and well being.

    Hammers aren’t hammers to hammer other hammers, hammers are hammers to hammer nails.

    Yes, that will be the response of an antiWhite government instead of reducing the percentage of White employees and raising the performance evaluations of nonWhites.

    The 10.5% rate was probably very overly generous.

      Just like the Constitutional 3/5’s.

  • JohnEngelsman

    I would be interested in seeing the numbers for non-gentile Caucasian employees, and for Asians. They would probably top 90% in terms of the percentages being top employees. I am actually surprised whites managed 20%.

    “the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau was set up by the president as the new credit cop … to sue lenders [over racial differences in mortgage loans]….”

    So the Democrats’ response to the 2008 sub-prime meltdown was to establish a new government agency to force mortgage lenders to make more sub-prime loans.

    Brilliant.

    I guess when it comes to policing race discrimination, anything goes –– even a global financial and economic crisis is not too great a price to pay.

  • MBlanc46

    Yeah, but they need the clever people to be funneling the affirmative action goodies to the Negroes. Can’t leave the important work to the AA hires.

  • We will wait for the Obama Administration to do the right thing here: sue itself, and go for blood. But, because we have brains, we won’t be holding our breath.

  • JackKrak

    Good for them. No, GREAT for them. Nice to see that someone has what you need to play tennis, golf and baseball to – oh, the horror! – TALK BACK when the usual suspects make the usual accusations.

    When are they going to go after the feds? Blacks are hugely overrepresented among government employees. I read somewhere that NASA employees are 40% black, but you can be sure that engineers and scientists at the space agency are no more than 2% of the staff, which leads me to conclude that NASA has a lot of janitors and file clerks.

      NJ state is riddled with blacks and Hispanics that are lazy and incompetent. Even the one’s that try to put in an honest days work are in over their heads and government needs two people to do a job only one would be needed if the employee were white.

  • TXCriollo

    You mean white males work harder then then aa black i got my job because of race. Dang who would have thought

  • In the Army, minorities rarely get negative counselings and evaluations. Everyone knows that a negative counseling or evaluation could lead to an equal opportunity complaint. In the Army, an EO complaint is a death sentence.
