Another bombshell video clip of billionaire and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg has been released, highlighting his racism towards minorities.
The resurfaced clip shows Bloomberg talking about blacks and Latinos where he claims that they don't know how to act in the workplace.
The comments were made during an interview with PBS in 2011. “Bloomberg noted that he had donated $30 million from his foundation to Open Society Foundations, the network established by liberal billionaire financier George Soros, toward the new plan to enhance employment among minorities,” Fox News’ Gregg Re reported. “Taxpayers and Soros himself contributed to the jobs initiative, which set up job recruitment centers in public housing projects, placed probation centers in ‘high-risk’ areas, and linked black and Latino success in schools to Department of Education ‘progress reports.'”
“Blacks and Latinos score terribly in school testing compared to whites and Asians. If you look at our jails, it’s predominantly minorities,” Bloomberg said, later noting that “virtually all” perpetrators of crime were those in the minority community.
Bloomberg also said, “But, nevertheless, there’s this enormous cohort of black and Latino males aged, let’s say, 16 to 25 that don’t have jobs, don’t have any prospects, don’t know how to find jobs, don’t know that the — what their skill sets are, don’t know how to behave in the workplace, where they have to work collaboratively and collectively.”

Bloomberg did mention however later on that it is important to bring together broken families as he highlighted the importance of having a father figure in the home.
“But there will be jobs if we can get these kids, get their families together, even if their fathers don’t live with their mothers or have never been married, or even maybe they’re in jail, get the fathers engaged,” Bloomberg said. “A lot of statistics show that, if the father is engaged, it gives the kids some understanding that he’s heading down the wrong path. And then assign mentors to them on one-on-one basis, so that there is somebody who has been successful, has a job, has a family, fits into society, and that they can go to.”
“You know, a lot of these kids, it isn’t that they’re bad kids. It’s that once they made a mistake, it’s very difficult to recover from that. But we have an obligation to them, if not for compassionate reasons, just for selfish reasons,” Bloomberg added. “Three-quarters of all kids in New York City that go to jail, serve a period and come out, go right back to the jail.”
Fox News highlights the struggles Bloomberg has been facing with past comments:
The head-turning comments in a resurfaced interview were just the latest headache for the multibillionaire’s campaign. In the past week, Bloomberg has been confronted with his previous claims that farming doesn’t take much intelligence and that “anybody” could do it, as well as his insistence that the way to get guns “out of the kids’ hands is to throw them up against the wall and frisk them.” Additionally, Bloomberg has taken heat for suggesting that a functioning health care system must let the elderly die.
