    I think it should continue and that minorities should be held to the same standards as other people. If they have bad credit then they need to find a job where they can pay their bills and get their score up. Just because they are minorities doesn't mean they need a break. I always do a credit check when renting out property and if it comes back that they haven't been paying their bills then tough luck. The same should apply to employees because you don't want a person who isn't responsible paying their bills. It could effect the company and its performance.



    American Third Position
    Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to hold hearing on use of credit checks in hiring | MLive.com

    The anti-white political correctness which is destroying our nation has taken yet another giant leap forward with the news that credit checks on job applicants are being outlawed because they are “racist.”

    In something that sounds more like a script to Frasier or Seinfeld, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has started holding an official hearing into the issue of credit checks being run on employees.

    The hearing is the result of complaints that the practice of checking the credit histories of job applicants “discriminates against blacks and Latinos who tend to have lower credit scores.”

    Astonishingly, four states have already passed laws limiting credit checks as a result, and similar bills have been introduced in 20 other states and Congress.

    “It is a practice that we believe is both harmful and unfair to American workers,” a person named Chi Chi Wu, who is apparently a counsel for the National Consumer Law Center, told the EEOC hearing.

    (A quick review of Ms. Wu’s background reveals that she is a member of the racially–based Asian Pacific American Agenda Coalition, which tells readers all they need to know about her support for nonwhite racial organizations.)

    Lending to blacks, Hispanics plummets during housing crisis
    Feb 14, 2011 - Since the housing market collapsed, mortgage lending to African Americans and Hispanics has plunged precipitously — by more than 60 percent, according to a new study of loan information that banks submit to the federal government.

    If they are handling the companies finances.. maybe so.. but most people fall on hard times for one reason or another in their lives. They should have the opportunity to dig themselves out if their qualified for the job.. Why make it even harder especially during these difficult days...
