it is racially motivated; if it was about their poor credit, then why did they get these jobs in the firt place? also having poor credit does not equate to you stealing ones info. just look at all of the white fat cats that brought eron and all those tht lost their 401ks , retirement pensions and the like; bet they had excellent credit. being white has its privileges.

I don't believe this is racially motivated.

Isn't it possible the weakening economy and the recession affected credit? Credit scores could have changed from the point of hire until now. Also, why does poor credit score automatically mean AAs? Doesn't that thought disparage the AA community as a whole?

I don't believe credit ratings should be used to determine employment. I know many who are a mess personally but have their s*it together professionally...and vice versa. Late payments do not equate to thievery, and it's insulting the govt. allows this to happen.

Nobody's whining about THAT though, ARE they?
