    President Obama says we must fundamentally change the way our Country does business. Black CEO’s in fortune 500 companies said it is time to fundamentally change the way we do business.
    Now they are all worried about their shareholders profits & americans are worried about their finances.
    The black communities have been demanding change since 1966. Now it has taken place, and we are seeing the results.
    Can we put the genie back in the bottle? And if we can, will the Civil Liberties Union call it racism?

      You’re repeating garbage you heard in the Koch-FOX-Murdoch echo chamber. All the Black CEOs think like the President, because they’re all Black? Really? It all sounds good in that fart-smelling locker room, but out here, we haven’t been indoctrinated and need some insight. Some facts. What Black CEOs said what? Do you have a single reference? What genie do you want put back into which bottle? Luke Visconti, CEO, DiversityInc
