  • Emily Flitter on The White Wall -
Synopsis:

Emily Flitter delivers an explosive and deeply reported look at the systemic racism inside the American financial services industry.
In 2018, Emily Flitter received a tip that Morgan Stanley had fired a Black employee without cause, that one tip lit the spark plug for a three-year journey through the shocking yet normalized corruption in our financial institutions.

From local insurance agencies and corporate titans like JPMorgan Chase, BlackRock, and Wells Fargo, The White Wall reveals the practices that have kept the racial wealth gap practically as wide as it was during the Jim Crow era.

Join us when acclaimed New York Times finance reporter Emily Flitter examined hiring and layoff policies designed to keep Black employees from advancing to high levels; racial profiling of customers in internal emails between bank tellers; major insurers refusing to pay Black policyholders’ claims; and the systematic denial of funding to Black entrepreneurs, on this installment of Leonard Lopate at Large.
