Feb 18 - Bloomberg 2011: Black and Latino men ‘don’t know how to behave in the workplace’
 

 

Democratic presidential hopeful Michael Bloomberg once claimed that black and Latino men “don’t know how to behave” at work as he promoted a multimillion-dollar initiative to help minorities gain employment during his tenure as NYC mayor, according to recently resurfaced video.

“There’s this enormous cohort of black and Latino males aged, let’s say, 16 to 25 that don’t have jobs, don’t have any prospects, don’t know how to find jobs, don’t know that the — what their skill sets are, don’t know how to behave in the workplace, where they have to work collaboratively and collectively,” the billionaire said in the 2011 interview with “PBS NewsHour.”

The quote is the latest in a string of remarks that have resurfaced from the billionaire presidential hopeful in recent weeks. Bloomberg has faced mounting scrutiny over controversial comments about “stop-and-frisk,” the practice of redlining and allegations of s*xism at his media company.

The 2020 hopeful made the remarks during a press tour to promote his Young Men’s Initiative, a program aimed at securing meaningful work for marginalized people through a series of steps including setting up job recruitment offices in housing projects and placing probation centers in “high-risk” areas.

During the interview, the billionaire ex-mayor discussed why minorities needed the a*sistance.

“Blacks and Latinos score terribly in school testing compared to whites and Asians. If you look at our jails, it’s predominantly minorities. If you look at where crime takes place, it’s in minority neighborhoods. If you look at who the victims and the perpetrators are, it’s virtually all minorities,” Bloomberg continued.

“A lot of these kids, it isn’t that they’re bad kids. It’s that once they made a mistake, it’s very difficult to recover from that. But we have an obligation to them, if not for compassionate reasons, just for selfish reasons.”

In a statement to The Post, Michael Frazier, the Bloomberg campaign’s national spokesman, defended the candidate’s record on helping individuals of color gain opportunity to join the American workforce.

“There’s no debate whatsoever that for people of color, and others, America has failed to deliver on its bedrock principle of equality of opportunity in the workplace. Everyone knows that, but few are able to address at least part of it in a meaningful way as Mike did through his administration’s Young Men’s Initiative, which Mike is discussing and what became the national blueprint for President Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper program.”

Maybe he shouldn't be the person to say this, and I'm sure this also applies to other ethnicities outside of blacks and latinos, but uhhhhh yeah that's all true. Can't even debate that. But a lot that is due to a lack of public resources and programs for youth in those type of communities, and let's not even talk about how stop and frisk and other sh*t like the media and straight up crooked cops are fuking up kids chances at even having the ability to get a job in the first place. But you could put that on the parents too if you wanted. It's a complicated issue altogether.

Hypocritical Dems and media are basically saying they have no problem with a racist scumbag s*xist horndog billionaire from NY in the white house as long as he is a democrat.

The baby is giving him the side eye because the baby is the only black person in there with any sense and also the only one not getting paid to be a spineless tapdancing sellout for an obvious unapologetic racist.

There’s 2 types of ppl in this world the ones who hear this statement and off rip think he’s being racist and the other type who take it as 16-25 from the hood obviously don’t kno how to act in a fu*king office space cuz they been growing up in the projects with a single mom and n*ggas who sell weed all day and have no job that involves being suited up.

Bloomberg ain’t racist y’all just sensitive and don’t do sh*t with your lives
