Amazon hires former AG Loretta Lynch to conduct a ‘racial equity audit’ of hourly workers

If a company retains former U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch to conduct a racial-equity audit, the results may be predictable. After all, everything looks like a nail to a person walking around with a hammer.

Yet, that is precisely what billionaire Jeff Bezos just did in furtherance of the left’s belief that racism permeates every aspect of American society, this being a central tenet of the highly toxic critical race theory.

“Amazon will conduct a racial-equity audit of its hourly workers after shareholders urged the company to provide more transparency into how its policies affect diversity, equity and workplace inclusion,” NBC News reported. “The company said in a recent securities filing that the audit will evaluate ‘any disparate racial impacts on our nearly one million U.S. hourly employees resulting from our policies, programs and practices.’ The audit will be led by former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, now a partner at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, as well as other attorneys from the firm.”

The audit is part of the tech giant’s “existing commitment to human and civil rights, racial equity, diversity and inclusion and nondiscrimination,” the filing stated.

The obsession with race continues to dominate American society and Amazon shareholders have been pushing for an independent review of how the company may contribute to racial inequities, according to the network.

New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli has also refiled a proposal for a racial-equity audit to be voted on at Amazon’s annual shareholder meeting next month, NBC News noted.

“Amazon has taken some measures to address racial justice and equity, including committing financial resources and publishing workforce diversity data,” the shareholder proposal said. “However, Amazon faces controversies, some significant, that pose various risks and raise questions related to the company’s overall strategy and the company’s alignment with its public statements.”

Despite multiple reports on the Black Lives Matter organization proving to be little more than a scam operation, with leaders steering money toward lavish real estate purchases.

“The foundation wasn’t even registered with the Internal Revenue Service as a charity,” the Washington Examiner reported in January. “But after George Floyd’s murder in May of 2020, tens of millions of dollars were given to this organization from major corporations and celebrities. And now, no one even knows where all that money has gone. Even worse, there doesn’t appear to be anyone in charge of the organization who can provide that information.”

What’s more, the Examiner cited Candid, a website devoted to tracking nonprofit donations, to report that BLM and other groups claiming to be devoted to racial “equity,” have raised over $25 billion since George Floyd’s death. And the black community is no better off.

Yet, corporate America continues to allow itself to be held hostage — to their very own detriment. Disney being the most recent example of this, caving to the radical left in support of critical gender theory among children that critics liken to child abuse.

Tyson Foods and Citigroup have recently agreed to conduct an audit of whether their practices contribute to racial inequities, NBC News reported.

At the same time, Amazon has come under fire recently for opposing efforts to unionize amid a reported surge of worker activism among its warehouse and delivery employees.

As for Lynch, these are busy times as the NFL recently retained her and her law firm in response to a civil rights lawsuit from former Miami Dolphin head coach Brian Flores.
