As if by magic.The bank of America will be paying $10 billion in cash and provide consumer relief valued at $7 billion.

The agreement requires the bank to acknowledge making misrepresentations about the quality of its residential mortgage-backed securities itself and in those by Countrywide Financial and Merrill Lynch.

Finally got caught after lying about it for years.

Apparently, there are a large contingent of Latinos who hate Blacks more than a Rednecked southerner.

TeleVisa. Forget You.

All the actors in this skit. Forget You.

The coonin brother? Forget You.

All the ignorant Latinos who agree with this bull-shyt and look down your nose at Black people (and I know some of you personally) Forget You.

If Black and Brown racial tensions were simmering, it just went ablaze with the racist TeleVisa skit that went viral today. Although the skit is over a year old, it found life on the internet as it’s overtly racist jokes and gags offended thousands.

In the skit, and exchange student from Africa join a class of Mexican students. They immediately begin to ridicule him, calling him a monkey, telling him his mother uses shoe polish to grease him up, throwing bananas at him, etc. The exchange student take it all in…agreeing with their assessment of his Blackness and begins smiling, cheesing and coonin.

Really Mexico? This is how you treat Blacks….Really? You?

MadMen, I’ve seen a lot of racist shyt, but this sickened me. I don’t know what is worse – the Latinos (who obviously don’t understand they are “colored”), the insensitive TeleVisa for airing it or the African actor who has no sense of pride.

It can be argued that even if all Black people refused to play these types of parts, they would have just put someone in Blackface to play the role. Apparently, there are a large contingent of Latinos who are more racist than a Rednecked southerner.

There is no way this can be misconstrued or explained away. There wasn’t a lesson learned about how we are all “brothers” or “family”. It didn’t poke fun at racism…it perpetuated it. Someone said that this is not racism because they don’t “hate” the Black kid. But we all know that hate and racism come in many forms. Any dark-skinned child watching this will learn hate themselves. But I guess that is the point isn’t it?

WHY VOTE wrote:
Ok, I don't really care if same sex people get married or are together in any capacity. I am for equal rights BUT.......... I am very annoyed that peoples votes don't mean anything anymore. What happened to a majority vote rules? What happened to the peoples voice?
My stance on this has nothing to do with same sex couples. This is just the latest thing a court has overturned or blocked that THE PEOPLE voted for. Look at AZ., look back at prop. 187 which would have saved is billions in illegal immigrant funding. The people of the USA are trying to make changes to better our country and the few judges are effectively disenfranchising us.
Again this is not directed at same sex couples it is major frustration over the majority loosing there voice.
WHY VOTE????
.

Exactly, my thoughts what is the use of voting when these judges are going to over rule what the majority wants, I'm not going waste my time or gas

true, but can all the blame go to them? Why do the cops incite violence? Why does the media incite violence?
