Toyota 2.0?

Rev. Jesse Jackson plans to lead a delegation to the Hewlett Packard annual shareholders meeting on Wednesday to bring attention to Silicon Valley’s poor record of including blacks and Latinos in hiring, board appointments and startup funding.

Jackson’s strategy borrows from the traditional civil rights era playbook of shaming companies to prod them into transformation. Now he is bringing it to the age of social media and a booming tech industry known for its disruptive innovation.

Let’s be honest, Jackson is never really in it for anybody else these days. His endgame here is sure to have a “Jesse Jackson’s bank account” component to it.

What this article fails to explore is that Silicon Valley and its driving industry are reeking with leftists who are supposed to be great lovers of diversity (as well as being (as well as being part of the Bay Area Progressive mother ship). Why on Earth would there be a lack of it, what with all of the latter day code hippies milling about the enviro-friendly tech campuses?

Jesse Jackson taught his son the meaning of right and wrong so well the Junior is imprisoned for multiple felonies.

This might sound awful, but I hope he succeeds in making those Progs' lives a living hell so that they get a taste of what other sectors have endured.

He knows only progg-libs are susceptible to his browbeating anymore.

I cannot take seriously the kinds of people who glue adverbs and verbs together ("shakedown"). If you're that dumb, how credible is your message?

Are you unaware that the word "shakedown" was in use for generations before Jesse Jackson's antics?

Gosh, I hope ALL of the delegation are shareholders, and they keep to their allotted speaking time.
Lest trespassing garner an additional Federal "hate crime" bonus, with "newly discovered" exclusions from double jeopardy protections.

Couldn't happen to a better group of zillionaires. I'll save my sympathy for someone who deserves it...

Somehow rap music never needed initiatives to get started or white diversity now.

Or, more simply, lack of skills in the subjects of the Jackson protectorate?
