“We’re proud to have a range of banks participate in our recent debt offering, including two well-respected minority-owned companies Williams Capital and Ramirez & Co.,” said Apple spokeswoman Kristin Huguet.
Rev. Jesse Jackson says this marks the first time that an African American-owned firm and a Latino-owned firm were included in a debt offering from the world’s largest company by market value.
Williams was started and is, apparently, owned by a Jamaican.
There’s real issues in the US about African Americans, agreed, but pointing to Jamaicans, other Caribbeans (Colin Powell) and African, African Americans (Obama). Might be better to point to what is really holding African-Americans back. The completely shite schooling that most of them receive in the union dominated education systems of the inner cities maybe?
You know Jesse, that system that you suport?
