Ethan Peck

“We’ve all seen how most major corporations – whether they make cars, sneakers, movies or coffee – flaunt pride flags the second the clock strikes 12:00 am on June 1 like a well-trained synchronized swim team. To many, the harmony of it all is astonishing, but once you learn that the leadership (and majority ownership) of big corporations are the same people, it’s not really a surprise when nearly all of them parrot the same exact woke nonsense at the same time,” writes Ethan.

Shepard: BOA’S Race-Based Loans Serve Its Woke Execs

Shepard: BOA'S Race-Based Loans Serve Its Woke Execs

In his latest commentary for Real Clear MarketsFree Enterprise Project Director Scott Shepard satirizes Bank of America’s racial “equity” mortgage program that would provide loans for black and Hispanic first-time homebuyers but not white ones.

But it also provides a clear illustration of how white billionaires are trying to buy unnecessary absolution for their wealth by crushing poor (and, inevitably, middle class) “non-diverse” people,” writes Scott.
