The troubles for Kaplan began when the company experienced problems involving financial improprieties among its employees. The test-prep and for-profit education giant responded by hiring third-party vendors to perform credit checks on current employees and job applicants who would be involved in financial matters.
Kaplan collected no race (or gender) data about job applicants at the time of the credit checks. The company only sought such information at the hiring stage. Nevertheless, the EEOC saw a convoluted conspiracy to identify people by race by using the very credit checks the EEOC uses.
In its subsequent lawsuit, the EEOC alleged that Kaplans use of credit checks causes it to screen out more African-American applicants than white applicants, creating a disparate impact in violation of Title VII of the federal Civil Rights Act.
The case quickly became absurd and hilarious when the super sleuths at the EEOC set out to prove racial disparities...
The 6th Circuit panel highlighted as much. The EEOC brought this case on the basis of a homemade methodology, crafted by a witness with no particular expertise to craft it, accepted only by the witness himself, the unanimous opinion observes.
It defies logic that a federal agency would seek to punish a private company for instituting a widely-accepted business practice especially since this agency engages in the same practice, she said. This is an example of the lengths to which this presidency will go to advance their divisive agenda.

I don’t think the quote in the last ‘graph was from the Court.
Cherylyn Harley LeBon, the other Project 21 co-chair, noted the irony of the EEOCs actions.
I thought I had picked that up in my copy.
Its typical with the agenda of the PC brigade. If something doesn’t go your way, just cry “RACISM” and hope that some guilty white liberals will bend over backwards to prove they are not racist. Even if it means losing everything they have and fall into utter ruin... even if it is life-threatening to them or their families, they will do ANYTHING to avoid being called racist whether warranted or not. Its the ‘go-to’ argument to win every time.
Waiting for the day that the Race Card plays itself out
Instead of one card I think it’s a whole deck.
Re: ‘Day the race card plays itself out’ - I was greatly encouraged during the last election to read a blog re a discussion among black business people in Chicago (HillBuzz, I think) that Obama was making it so much worse for blacks by being non-stop racist about everything.
