How To Make BIG Enemies On Wall Street

Donate office space to Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow/Push Coalition so they can pressure companies into hiring minorities.

From a 1997 NY Times article.

As if Wall Street has not been frenetic enough in recent weeks, it will soon have a new tenant who plans to shake it up even more: the Rev. Jesse L. Jackson.

Mr. Jackson yesterday announced plans to open an office on Wall Street next month that will bring his brand of capitalism to the epicenter of the world’s financial system.

Mr. Jackson said his new office would seek to cajole, persuade and pressure American companies to hire and promote more blacks and members of other minorities, name more of them to corporate boards and award more business to companies owned by members of minorities.

Speaking to an enthusiastic group of black executives at the World Trade Center in Manhattan, Mr. Jackson said, ”Open up the walls on Wall Street.”

To put pressure on corporate America, Mr. Jackson said he would publish details on how well 100 of the nation’s largest corporations treat minorities. As further pressure, he pledged to form a group of a million consumers — 20,000 in each of the nation’s 50 largest cities — and provide them with monthly updates on the records of specific companies’ dealings with minorities.

Donald J. Trump received an ovation when he announced that he would donate office space to Mr. Jackson’s civil rights group, the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition, in 40 Wall Street, a 72-story building he is renovating.

”He’s out there pushing for a lot of good things,” said Mr. Trump, who noted that he and Mr. Jackson had become good friends over the years.

Funny how Donald Trump has become the biggest racist in America since running against Democrats.
