Saturday, June 28, 2014 Wall Street an elusive dream for black Americans

Wall Street is the last civil rights barrier against freedom that needs to be demolished. Time to protest this old boys network and show that their elitism and racism won't be tolerated much longer.
Fifty years to the day that Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. told a crowd of 250,000 in Washington that "the Negro…finds himself an exile in his own land," Wall Street is mostly a foreign country for black workers.
The difficult road that blacks still face in the heart of America's financial capital was underscored by news on Wednesday that brokerage giant Merrill Lynch has agreed to pay $160 million to settle racial discrimination claims by black brokers.
