THE ORIGIN OF LEHMAN BROTHERS, DIVINE REVERSAL!

In HOT BUTTON TOPIC, INTERNATIONAL NEWS, THE PEOPLE'S NEWS, TRANS-ATLANTIC SLAVE TRADE on September 15, 2008 at UTC.30.30.

Lehman Brothers was one of 17 defendants in a class action lawsuit that suggested they either profited with “slave labor”, or profited from the “Slave Trade.” In 2003, the company admitted that the three brothers that founded the company in 1850 purchased one slave, and may have owned others, though it was said there was no evidence that the “slaves” were used to make money for the company.

Of course, they made money for the company, but you wouldn’t have a record of the fact because “enslaved persons” didn’t get paid for their labor. It was free forced labor. So, why would anyone suggest that someone owned slave(s), but there’s no indication of them making money? Someone has something to hide.

Why would you purchase an enslaved individual, if you have no purpose or intention to put them to work? You wouldn’t!

On the other hand, Lehman Brothers also financially backed numerous private prison corporations. For example, Cornell Companies, Inc.; Corrections Corporation of America and Wackenhut Corrections Corporation.

So here is a company that has profited off the collective oppression of Black people in the form of Slave ownership. In addition, today this company has rescued prison corporations from going into bankruptcy, and provided financial backing to the same companies. For this company to profit on the privatization of the prison industrial complex is indelible of the companies origin.

For Lehman Brothers to profit from its for profit prison investments smacks of discrimination and covert racism. The prison system disproportionately affects black men with higher incarceration rates. Moreover, the cycle of disenfranchisement continues from the “Trans Atlantic Slave Trade, to Jim Crow, to the prison industrial complex.”

Lehman Brothershas also profited from Predatory lending habits. A practice that largely targets low-income people of color with deceptive loans that carry enormous interest rates.

 In 2003, a Federal jury found Lehman Brothers liable for 10% of $51 million awarded to a predatory lending lawsuit against mortgage company First Alliance Corp.

So, the history of this ‘cornerstone” of American finance has a history of “slave ownership”, “predatory lending and pepetuation of the prison industrial complex. Safe to say African-Americans celebrate the liquidation of this historically vile & wicked company.

All of these companies listed above have benefited from centuries of ill treatment towards African people. However, the Most High’s judgement never sleeps, his majesty is ETERNAL!!

What else would you call the financial collapse of a cornerstone in American finance history? You must call it what it is: A DIVINE REVERSAL!!
