World Bank Accused of Ridiculous Racism

Post By RelatedRelated Post

A new report doesn’t sit well for the World Bank, which claims that it’s goal is to help alleviate poverty.   For decades, there have been cries that the bank doesn’t do a very good job of serving black, brown and poor countries.  A recent report shows the depth of the racism within the organization and how people of color are not allowed to participate in the functional activities of this very important institution.

The modern mission of the World Bank is to alleviate world poverty, but although Asia and Africa are home to 80 percent of the world’s poor, the racism of the bank is so deeply entrenched and pervasive that the nations of Africa have virtually no say over the bank’s policies and actions and blacks have no presence in its internal operations, according to an article by former World Bank officer Phyllis Muhammad on allafrica.com.

It is a problem that was pointed out as long ago as 1978 by the late William Raspberry, the Pulitzer Prize-winning syndicated columnist who wrote 34 years ago about the complete absence of blacks in the operations of the World Bank. There has been very little improvement since then.

In fact, a group called Justice for Blacks has started a petition drive on change.org asking Human Rights Watch to investigate the bank’s human rights violations. The petition, entitled “End Racial Discrimination at the World Bank” and thus far signed by more than 1,500 people, chronicles some of the bank’s woeful practices regarding black people at its Washington, DC-based headquarters, where it employs more than 10,000 staff and consultants. Because it is part of the UN system, the World Bank is not under the jurisdiction of the U.S. courts, meaning internal victims of discrimination can’t seek recourse in the American courts but must instead go before an internal Tribunal—where they have not received any justice.

  1. The World Bank should be investigated for fraud. It has a public face in the West as a financial organization that helps poor nations, but its real face actually pockets the money because it is run by evil ones who love money. Jesus warned about the lovers of money, and how that ‘love’ is the root of all evil.

  2. A lot of my Hebrew people do not realize that these fallen Angel babies hate us with a fierce hatred that is all spiritual. They will continue on this path and yes it is going to get worst, more than some realize. Please stop believing that their own kind will bring them up on charges, they rule this wicked world……just until YAHOSHUA comes, please be strong and search for the entire truth. It will amaze you. I am still searching and petitioning the MOST HIGH AHYAH to reveal this hidden knowledge to me and HE has.

  3. Lets not forget the IMF also. He who control the resources has the power and that’s the facts. Hotep …

  4. We as Black people just catch hell no matter where what is it about our skin color that just make people act the way they do even some of our own (DAMN)

  5. Not surprising..

  6. Not really. No one will pay to aditrese on a site that gets less than thousands of hits each month, and a simple site won’t do that because the search engines ignore small sites.Bottom line is to make money you need to work both hard and smart.

  7. The roots of the corruption with banksters goes back past the Transatlantic Slave Trade, which they financed. It would not have been as widespread …nor would they have been able to kidnap so many slaves without BANK LOANS. And now they are dealing in other dirt.

    I continue to be baffled at the amount of time, energy, and postings that are spent to put down, criticize, nitpick and slam Pres. Obama — but we see little comment…hardly any…against the awful actions of the TEA PARTY…Limbaugh, Beck, FOX NEWS and that bunch of scoundrels. Those rightwing nuts defend the BANKS and WALL ST. no matter what they do.

    Some folks that do all of these postings claim to be “so Black or Afro-centric” — but they simply do not criticize the very people who have been blocking JOBS BILLS, and other benefits proposed by Pres. Obama that would help Black folks. It’s pathetic.
