"New York: Bank didn't lend to blacks in Buffalo"

More: http://news.msn.com/crime-justice/new-york-bank-didnt-lend-to-blacks-in-buffalo#tscptme


Eric Schneiderman filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court on Tuesday alleging accusing Evans Bank of intentionally excluding predominantly African-American neighborhoods on the city's east side from its lending area.

In a statement, bank President David Nasca says Evans will "vigorously" defend itself against meritless accusations.

Schneiderman says the lawsuit is part of a wider investigation by his office into the illegal practice of redlining, in which a lender denies access to mortgages or charges more in certain neighborhoods based on race.

The lawsuit alleges that more than 75 percent of Buffalo's African-American population was denied access to the bank's mortgage products.

"Oklahoma cop accused of raping black women finds supporters on social media"

Supporters of an Oklahoma City police officer who was charged with raping or sexually abusing eight black women have raised more than $7,000 for the 27-year-old cop.

Daniel Holtzclaw was arrested in August on charges of rape, forcible oral sodomy, sexual battery, and indecent exposure for allegedly sexually assaulting women while on patrol. He is being held on $5 million bond.

Friends and family of the three-year veteran of the Oklahoma City Police Department have created a Facebook page called “Justice for Daniel Holtzclaw.” They insist the criminal allegations against him are false, and have been using the page to try to sell shirts that read, “Free the Claw” and “#JusticeForDanielHoltzclaw.”

More than 500 people have “liked” the Facebook page.


Disgusting, but not surprising...

"How American Are You?"

Megyn Kelly vs. Bill O'Reilly on Ferguson

More: http://www.mediaite.com/tv/megyn-kelly-oreilly-clash-over-white-privilege-in-ferguson/

On Fox News Monday, Bill O’Reilly and Megyn Kelly butted heads over whether distrust by black people of the vastly white police force in Ferguson, Mo, is justified.

After ticking off several statistics that demonstrate black Americans are at a disadvantage both economically and socially, Kelly said there’s “a lot of evidence” supporting the idea that whites have unique privilege in the U.S.

O’Reilly countered that Asian-Americans are not “troubled,” academically outperforming whites. “It all comes down to family, culture, personal responsibility,” he said. “All of these things which we don’t hear much about and this is what drives the poverty.”

“Look, it’s not just families and culture,” Kelly said. She referenced “white flight,” the tendency of white residents to leave communities when a number of blacks move nearby. “The black population feels forgotten, Bill” she said. “That’s why they feel resentful.”
