BIGOTRY RAMPANT INSIDE AGENCY OBAMA CREATED TO FIGHT FINANCIAL BIAS: Employees of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau are coming forward in droves talking about widespread racial, gender and ethnic discrimination within the workforce there, according to Richard Pollock of the Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group.

Things are so bad in one key division of CFPB that workers there refer to it as “The Plantation.” One in four of the black, Asian and female CFPB employees surveyed by the Government Accountability Office said they had been discriminated against by managers on at least one occasion.

“Now five years old, CFPB was intended as a model for government when Obama joined with one of his top appointees, Elizabeth Warren, in designing and proposing the bureau in 2010. Warren later became the progressive Democratic senator from Massachusetts. The bureau was created under the Dodd-Frank Act, and among its purposes was to root out discrimination in the financial marketplace,” Pollock reports.

In its five year existence, CFPB has done little other than compile two huge intrusive databases containing billions of bytes of information about individual Americans financial position. Because it was created as part of the Federal Reserve, the CFPB is beyond the financial and regulatory oversight of Congress.

“You have a lawless agency when it comes to its own employees,” attorney David H. Shapiro, a former U.S. Attorney who for the last 40 yeas has represented individuals in civil rights law and discrimination cases, told Pollock.
