Amazon has just agreed to a woke audit to find out if their employee policies are racist.
The audit will be performed by Obama’s former Attorney General, Loretta Lynch.
Here’s more from Bloomberg:
Amazon.com Inc. said it agreed to undergo an independent racial equity audit, joining companies including Citigroup Inc. and Tyson Foods Inc. in performing such reviews.
The audit — an analysis of companies to see whether their businesses cause and perpetuate discrimination — will be led by former U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch, a partner at law firm Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP, Amazon said in a proxy statement filed Thursday.
The review will measure any disparate racial impacts on Amazon’s U.S. hourly employees resulting from policies, programs and practices, the world’s largest online retailer said. The Seattle-based company said it will publish the audit’s results once completed.
Amazon joins other companies, including Citigroup, that have agreed to perform racial audits after initially pushing back against doing them. They had cited their efforts such as funding historically Black colleges and universities, running leadership programs for underrepresented minorities and channeling tens of millions of dollars to help close the racial wealth divide.
Apple Inc. shareholders backed a call last month for the tech giant to undergo a civil-rights audit — the first time such a resolution passed. Airbnb Inc. was the first company to do a racial audit back in 2016. Starbucks Corp. and Facebook Inc., now called Meta Platforms Inc., followed.
I’m sorry, but this sounds to me like woke lawyers coming up with a way to prey on leftist corporations. Seriously.
In this day and age there are laws that govern how corporations, big and small, treat their employees. I doubt very seriously if Amazon’s employee policies are even remotely racist. If they were I’m sure we’d have heard about it by now.
Yet instead of standing up to their shareholders, some of whom are the ones pushing for this, they are cowering to the mob and now they are going to pay Loretta Lynch big bucks to look for racism everywhere and you can bet she’s going to find it.
So after this audit is over and done, will Amazon be able to say that they’re ‘woke approved’ to satisfy the mob and their lefist overlords? Probably.
But one thing is for sure. Loretta Lynch is going to be a lot richer when this is over.
