Most CEO's are smart enough to keep their racist thoughts to themselves while in public. I wonder how Solid8 feels about keeping you as the CEO today???? Perhaps you should go back to the UK? Just saying....

Even if there was a disagreement or argument that led to this, racism is NEVER okay. Fight about the problem. No need to bring race into it.

Oh please! Michael Lofthouse is not sorry at all! What does "inequality" have to do with being a hateful racist who verbally assaults people in person and on social media??!! This so called apology is because very few people will want to do business with a hate monger like him!

"The problem of racial inequality is not just a lack of knowledge; it is the lack of willingness..."
https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2020/06/18/racism-isnt-about-ignorance-some-smartest-minds-have-upheld-systemic-inequality {This is just a copy below of what I've written before.}

Systematic racism is not exclusive to uneducated people. It is in place, designed, and supported by well the educated people in power in government and industry. Educated people like Amy Cooper, Lisa Alexander, and her husband Robert Larkin are examples of educated racist people with money and power (educated people in liberal Northern States) - they are just the tip of a very large iceberg.

Now another part of the iceberg shows it's cold dead eyes of Michael Lofthouse. Lisa Alexander was CEO of Laface Skincare. Franklin Investments and Raymond James Investment firms fired Amy Cooper and Robert Larkin AFTER they showed their racist faces. Why did these companies hire them in the first place? And why fire these people now? What about the people doing the hiring and firing?

Why? They are well educated, systematically racist organizations to begin with and they fired them now because it's good PR for the company. As an educated organization, they distance themselves from the 'few bad apples' because they were bad (really they were caught and called out) and we're 'good'. But the system still remains. If these companies were REALLY serious about racism then they should clean house. Put in writing Civil Rights and equity policies but with real teeth (protection for Whistleblowers calling out the racists and misogynists, fire without pay, retroactive return of stock options, cancel all ISO's, and NO Golden Parachutes).

Take away the money away from systematic racism. To steal the intention behind the #BlackLivesMatter, #DefundThePolice protests, these investment companies (and all corporations and all industries) should "Defund the Corporate Racists".

He apologized after he realized he was video taped. I’m sure his apology was heart felt. We need to pull a ‘Inglorious Basterds’ on these people and carve a swastika in their foreheads so we can spot the hate!
