    The “Banking while Black” story was just atrocious. He gets thrown in jail, loses his job, his car…and Chase ignores him for a year? If anything, they should be paying damages or SOMETHING. It’s so awful that something like that actually happened.

    I like the dolls idea. It’s a small change, but if we continue to implement subtle improvements like this, the impact will show in time. Definitely still have a ways to go on the large scale, however.

    As for Chase, screw them. I don’t care how many people they employ. My nonprofit essentially makes money from campaigning against Chase, and yet our money is still in their bank. I’m sick of dealing with taking my check to one of their branches, have them take 6 bucks from it, and use that money to rob people of their homes, assets, and dignity. And then have the nerve to ask me if I want to open an account…ha!
