OUR COMMON GROUND "Race Discrimination in Employment and the EEOC" July 28, 2012 10 pm ET

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) (www.EEOC.gov) has the power to investigate discrimination in the workplace. Most of these workplace complaints are filed on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, or age.

Ricardo Jones charges that  this organization has failed its mission miserably when it involves cases affecting African Americans. When someone makes an official complaint to the EEOC a professional investigation is supposed to be conducted, where investigators look into claims of discrimination at that particular workplace. After 180 days of investigation, the EEOC tells the complainant in writing whether or not their case has any merit and they are issued a ‘Right to Sue’ letter, which allows them to officially sue their employer in federal court.

 

Tonight's Guest Ricardo Jones, former Sr., EEOC Investigator and Federal Whistleblower


Ricardo Jones claims none of this takes place for far too many race discrimination cases filed by African-Americans. According to Jones, an EEOC insider and Whistleblower, who was employed by the New York City Office Equal Employment Opportunity Commission for nine years, “only 1% of the complaints made to the EEOC get investigated dan others (typically those made by African Americans are thrown into the garbage or labeled ‘unfounded.’” Instead of conducting proper investigations, the was just handing out EEOC Right to Sue’ letters.”  

Jones is a veteran and the former Senior Federal Investigator for the new York District of the EEOC from 2001 to 2010. He charges that the  EEOC is a cesspool of corruption and racism. He says, “Blacks working in the United States have no protection from racial discrimination, because the EEOC unfairly rejects almost 97% of all cases filed by Blacks.” “Sellout Blacks in the EEOC and racist white workers in the government agency accept bribes and do their jobs in a sexually charged environment where sexual availability and tolerance of racial injustice places folks on the fast track.”

Jones, whose job was to investigate mostly private sector workplace complaints, was the only investigator in his office who refused to dismiss all Black complaints as ordered by his managers and supervisors and this is one of the reasons that he was fired.

Jones asserts that any complaint filed by an African American--no matter if they were employed by the city, state, federal or private sector--was labeled a “C” (A “C” means an automatic “DISMISSAL”) and the case or file is thrown into the garbage. Not only did EEOC label ALL complaints by African Americans a “C” – they also violated their own policies and procedures to issue a (PDI) pre-determination interview, when they failed to notify African American complainants that no findings of discrimination were found in their cases. On top of that, ‘Right to Sue’ your employer letters were only issued after 180 days but most of the time African American complainants never received any type of pre-determination notices before their cases were dismissed by the EEOC. Jones stated “since the EEOC is not going to investigate your case anyway, all African Americans and others should always just ask for a ‘Right to Sue’ letter --a few days after filing a complaint with EEOC, which is well in their rights.”


He alleged that the agency gave these cases are always met with “lazy investigative work”.  How can the EEOC say that workplace discrimination did not occur simply because the complainants were African Americans and then not even bother to inform complainants of their findings?

We will talk with Ricardo Jones about these charges and how we can fix EEOC to work for us.

The Presidents appointee Jacqueline Berrien chair of EEOC is supporting “JIM-CROW II LAWS” at the Rogue EEOC. Black people are not equally qualified for employment by the non-enforcement of the CIVIL RIGHTS ACT OF 1964 as amended by the EEOC. This is what Ms. Berrien has brought to the EEOC nation wide. Ms. Berrien has required the dismissal of a additional 50 complaint per investigator at all EEOC office. If any investigator refuses to dismiss the additional 50 complaints they with be disciplined.

Jacqueline Berrien made a deal with Senator Tom Harken of (IA) head of the senate committee that oversee's the EEOC. The deal was dismiss all Black complaints and my committee will confirm you!

Check the stat's a the eeoc. Yvette Clarke Representative Brooklyn (11) in the House and Miniority whip for Black Caucas was in on the deal.

The numbers don't lie!!!

Jacqueline Berriens is Michelle Robinson-Obama's Harvard Law School Friend!

Yvette Clarke House Representative from Brooklyn (11) NY is Jacqueline Berrien Oberlin College friend!

 


In my opinion you are correct - this administration and the one before it did put individuals like Ridgely and Randall in high ranking positions to undermine opportunities for minority contractors and institutions of higher learning.  What you misunderstand is that there are no "set-asides" or rights for minorities to obtain contracts in the federal contracting.  The closest we came to having minority set-asides was prior to the Adarand, Crosen and Rothe decisions.  Most recently it appears the DOD is backing around from even the 8(a) program because of a hostile Supreme Court towards minority business set-asides.

This is not an Obama issue - is my point.  This is a government culture issue that was legitimized during the Clinton administration, got worst during the Bush administration - and hasn't been identified or dealt with during the Obama administration.

Again, my issue is that the Obama administration defended what they knew was improper and possible illegal conduct by the agency officials.  They admitted that the conduct was improper in open court.  I had an attorney who appears to have assisted the agency officials because what of what I think may be his interest with the Republican party.   


Don't confuse the two issues.

last night 12/19/2012 in Brooklyn NYC at the Elk's Lodge. I (Ricardo Jones) had the pledgor of sharing the platform and stage with some great freedom fighters.
 
UNITED AFRICAN MOVEMENT
IN
ATTENDANCE
 
  1. MRS. ALTON H. MADDOX, JR.
  2. SISTER PAM AFRICA
  3. SISTER KESHIA
 
The rally was for our people "Black People" poor and the working class. Mainly it was to lift-up the sprites and rally the movement for our freedom. Sister Keshia spoke about who we are and where we come from. She also spoke about standing up against the corrupt racist court system in NYC. She further spoke about the tragedy of Newton CT, and guns.
 
Sister Pam Africa had invitied me to share her time, after only one phone conversation with me just hours before.  Pam spoke about "Mumia Abu-Jamal" and a brave Sister Veronica Jones. Ms. Jones had Identified Mumia for the 1981 killing of Philadelphia police officer Faulkner. Ms. Jones was a young prostitute on the hard streets of inner city Philly. Jones was intimidated into testifying and framing Mumia for the killing of officer Faulkner. Jones changed her life and came forward in 1996 to tell the truth in court. Mumia was not gulity and had been framed by the Philly police. Pam Africa's point was that Sister Veronica Jones had been raped by her grand father as a child and never knew her real father. Veronica is a true Black Heroine! Veronica has passed away now but she's in heaven and will remain a true Warrior of the Movement.
