Alabama bank VP canned over racist Facebook post bragging Trump could ‘buy and sell’ Obamas

Racist Trump Jackass of the Week…Now Unemployed

An Alabama woman lost her job after her bigoted, inaccurate and grossly misspelled Facebook rant earned her the title of “racist of the week.”

June Pridmore, a senior-level employee with Regions Bank, welcomed the election of Donald Trump in a social media post that alluded to slavery and suggested President Barack Obama was Muslim, reported AL.com.

“I voted him in,” Pridmore wrote. “I like him. He has a beautiful wife unlike the ugly and embarrassing woman (for lack of a better word), in the White House now. Ms. Trump’s face would make Michele (sic) O’Bama (sic) a Sunday face.”

“I’m certainly glad [Trump] he has a lot of money because she he (sic) won’t be bought out like Barack (sic), socialist Muslim O’Bama (sic) or his wife or all those host of relatives they have in the whitehouse (sic) for US to support.”

Pridmore inaccurately claimed the Obama family had flown their dog to vacations in a separate plane and invited several relatives to live with them at taxpayer expense.

“If any idiot out there thinks that is justified, you deserved him as president,” Pridmore wrote. “I prefer a man who can buy Michele (sic) and Barack and sell them several times over.”

The post was widely shared on Facebook, under the label “racist of the week,” and Pridmore’s employer launched an investigation — which resulted in her termination.

“We appreciate the concerns shared about offensive social media comments that were made through an associate’s personal Facebook account,” said Jeremy King, a spokesman for the bank. “We want you to know that we share those concerns. Those comments do not reflect our values as a company or the way we do business. The associate is no longer an employee of the company.”

The spokesman said Pridmore, whose LinkedIn profile showed she had served as senior vice president of loan operations since 2008, was not in a position where she could approve or deny loans.

Pridmore has deleted her social media profiles since her racist post cost her job.

The Whites Only House – Another Chumph Appointee…Another Bigot

 

 

Bank Led By Donald Trump’s Top Treasury Contender Accused Of Racist Lending

OneWest allegedly avoided lending to communities of color.

A California bank led by Donald Trump’s reported likely treasury secretary, Steven Mnuchin, is facing new allegations of racist lending practices.

OneWest failed to locate bank branches in minority neighborhoods, loaned money to “very few or no” people of color, and did a better job maintaining and marketing foreclosed homes in mostly white neighborhoods, according to a complaint filed by two housing advocacy groups Wednesday with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

The discrimination, called “redlining,” keeps communities of color in poverty by making it harder to buy homes. It was banned in 1968 under the Fair Housing Act.

The complaint was filed against CIT Group, the commercial lending giant that owns OneWest. Mnuchin, who led the investor group that bought OneWest in 2009 and served as its chairman, joined the board of CIT after the acquisition was completed in August 2015.

“Our analysis of OneWest suggests the bank has no significant branch presence in communities of color,” Kevin Stein, deputy director of California Reinvestment Coalition, one of the two nonprofits that filed the complaint, said in a statement. “[N]ot surprisingly, its home loans to borrowers and communities of color are low in absolute terms, low compared to its peer banks, and low when compared to what one would expect, given the size of the Asian American, African American, and Latino populations in California.”

Dune Capital, the hedge fund where Mnuchin works, did not respond to a request for comment on Wednesday.

“CIT is committed to fair-lending and works hard to meet the credit needs of all communities and neighborhoods we serve,” a spokesman for CIT said in a statement emailed to The Huffington Post on Thursday evening. 

In the Los Angeles area in which OneWest operates, black borrowers last year received just 1.7 percent of its mortgages ― 2.1 percentage points below the industry average. Asian Americans made up 8.4 percent of the bank’s borrowers ― 3 percentage points below the industry average. Latinos comprised an additional 8.4 percent of borrowers ― 14 percentage points below the industry average. Meanwhile, the bank awarded 82.4 percent of its loans to white people ― 14.6 percentage points above the industry average.

One-hundred percent of foreclosed homes ― also known as real estate-owned properties ― in neighborhoods of color had five or more maintenance or marketing failures, including trash strewn in the front yard, overgrown grass and shrubbery, and boarded up or broken doors and windows. By contrast, 33.3 percent of foreclosed properties in white neighborhoods sustained the same blight.

The complaints cast an ugly light over the man Trump officials have floated as the leading candidate to lead the Department of Treasury.

Mnuchin led the group of investors that bought OneWest, then called IndyMac Bank, from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. in 2009 after the company had collapsed under the weight of bad home loans it made during the housing bubble. As part of the deal, the FDIC agreed to take the hit for the vast majority of loan losses, an arrangement the agency made with buyers of other banks after the crash. OneWest then went to work foreclosing on homeowners, using the fraudulent, corner-cutting technique known as robosigning. In the years that followed, it paid billions of dollars in profits to its investors.

The investor group included private equity financial institutions specialist J.C. Flowers; hedge fund billionaire John Paulson, who later became famous for his massive bet against the U.S. housing market; and progressive philanthropist George Soros.

OneWest was not the only bank to make bad loans during the housing bubble and push people out of their homes once things soured. However, in an industry we now know was filled with fraud, “OneWest stood out,” wrote David Dayen, the author of a book on the foreclosure crisis published this year. “It routinely jumped to foreclosure rather than pursue options to keep borrowers in their homes; used fabricated and ‘robo-signed’ documents to secure the evictions; and had a particular talent for dispossessing the homes of senior citizens and people of color.”

By Any Means Necessary

It is time to take back America…Or destroy it.

Welcome to Trump’s America: 87 reports of people bullied by emboldened bigots — and the list is growing

First Lady-elect Melania Trump wants to stop bullying, but children all over America are being bullied today because of her husband.

“We must find better ways to honor and support the basic goodness of our children, especially in social media,” Mrs. Trump said at a Pennsylvania rally last week. “It will be one of the main focuses of my work, if I am privileged enough to become your first lady.”

Ironically, the International Bullying Prevention Association conference took place during the first part of this week and during Election Day.

“We know that traditional bullying results in higher rates of anxiety and depression and even higher risks of suicidal ideation and lower self-esteem and the research shows that we’re seeing similar impacts from cyber-bullying as well. It’s most likely to be harmful when there is that mixed harassment of bullying and cyber-bullying that occur together,” IBPA president Patricia Agatston said.

In a single day, Raw Story has reported on three cases of pro-Trump related bullying of students. The first occurred when students in Minnesota were greeted with “F*ck n*ggers” written on their door. A Michigan middle school had a small group of childrenchanting “build that wall,” while their fellow students, who are Latino, were crying. Another school, this one in Pennsylvania, had students marching with Donald Trump signs while chanting “white power.” We also covered a story of Trump supporters, who filmed themselves driving through Wellesley College, Hillary Clinton’s alma mater and harassing black students. George Zimmerman was also kicked out of a bar for calling someone a “n*gger lover,” though he wasn’t embolden by Trump. That’s just who he is.

Yesterday, we covered a south Philly neighborhood subjected to Nazi graffiti. A Utah man told a neighbor boy, “get out of here n*gger” — then attacked the boy’s dad with stun cane.

While there have not been many of these, there are incidents of anti-Trump violence. In the case of a Los Angeles school, Trump supporters were attacked and one principal is on leave after anti-Trump attacks. Another with anti-Trump protesters in College Park. Another man was also robbed and assaulted.

Thus far Melania Trump has not commented on any of these incidents.

Unfortunately, there have been so many of these stories we decided to begin compiling a list of them here:

Here’s a tweet from a young black student who captured a white boy calling him “a n*gger” and said that he “should be pickin’ cotton.”

Trump Bankrolled Racist Ads to Stop Mohawk Casino

Trump has no compunction in playing the race card – in business or politics…

REVEALED: Trump bankrolled a racist ad campaign against Native Americans to protect his casino biz

Donald Trump has shown no reluctance to do bigoted things during his presidential campaign, whether it’s supporting a ban on Muslims entering the U.S. or attacking a “Mexican” judge as being unfit to rule on the Trump University case.

Because of this, it’s not surprising to learn that Trump once bankrolled a racist ad campaign against Native Americans who had just proposed building a casino in upstate New York.

The Los Angeles Times reports that when the St. Regis Mohawk tribe announced plans to build a casino near a racetrack in the Catskills, Trump decided to bankroll an ad campaign aimed at convincing local communities to kill the project.

Trump plunged $1 million into a purported “grassroots” anti-gambling organization called the New York Institute for Law and Society that warned the casino would bring “increased crime, broken families, bankruptcies and, in the case of the Mohawks, violence.”

But that’s not all: Documents obtained by The Los Angeles Times show that Trump personally signed off on a strategy devised by longtime ally Roger Stone to depict the Mohawks as a violent people who would bring ruin to everyone else in the area.

“Roger, do it!” Trump scrawled on a proposed flier that said the Mohawk tribe was well known for being a violent group that sold drugs and smuggled undocumented immigrants into the country.

Trump and his associates were ordered by the New York Temporary State Commission on Lobbying to pay $250,000 for deceptive advertising by not disclosing the fact that Trump almost single handedly funded the New York Institute for Law and Society, despite the fact that the organization falsely boasted it had raised funds from more than 12,000 donors.

ANOTHER Trump Delegate Indicted for Guns and Child Porn!

The Drumph may well lose the Primary because all his Delegates are in prison!

A vote is like a rifle; its usefulness depends upon the character of the user.  -Theodore Roosevelt

Maryland Trump delegate indicted after ATF agents find explosives, machine gun and child porn

A delegate for Donald Trump from Charles County, Maryland was indicted this week on charges related to illegal transport of explosives, possession of a machine gun and child pornography.

In a press release on Thursday, the U.S. Department of Justice said that ATF agents began investigating 30-year-old Caleb Andrew Bailey after postal inspectors discovered a package with .50 caliber cartridges with M48A1 incendiary projectiles and other ammunition with explosive projectiles.

On May 5, law enforcement executed a search warrant “at adjoining properties associated with Bailey, including his residence, and seized a machine gun,” according to the statement.

Court documents allege that Bailey also used a minor to produce child pornography, and that child pornography was found in his possession.

Bailey faces over 50 years in prison if found guilty of all charges.

The Maryland Board of Election currently lists Bailey as a delegate for Donald Trump.
