Rebecca Allen, a Black female banker, is suing Goldman Sachs for racial discrimination. In a hilarious twist to the story, Allen claims to be Jewish and says that her superiors at the Jewish financial firm made anti-Semitic remarks about her. Reuters reports:
A black banker in Goldman Sachs Group Inc’s (GS.N) personal wealth management unit filed a lawsuit on Wednesday accusing the firm of steering top clients to her white colleagues and denying her promotions because of her race.
Rebecca Allen in the lawsuit filed in federal court in Manhattan said Goldman’s virtually all-white senior leadership team favors white bankers for promotions and lucrative accounts, so they earn more than black coworkers.
Allen, who was hired in 2012, said that last year she was removed from an account she had worked on for three years by a Goldman partner, Christina Minnis. Allen says her supervisor met with Minnis about the decision and said she made racist and anti-Semitic comments about Allen, who is also Jewish.
…In Wednesday’s lawsuit, Allen says her male colleagues were assigned to more lucrative accounts. But her legal claims stem only from alleged discrimination based on her race and religion.
So, we have a Black “Jewish” banker trying to out-jew a bunch of Jewish bankers. lol This should be a lot of fun to watch!
