It’s Over: Michael Bloomberg Told New Mom To Find ‘Some Black’ For A Nanny



Michael Bloomberg Allegedly Told New Mom To Find ‘Some Black’ For A Nanny

The female employee had been struggling to secure child care, according to legal documents unearthed by The Washington Post.

By Sara Boboltz, Puff Ho, February 15, 2020:

Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg has long been trailed by accusations of promoting a frat house culture in the workplace, but documents in a 1998 lawsuit reported by The Washington Post contain particularly ugly remarks attributed to the Manhattan billionaire.

Around July 1993 at the financial data company he founded, Bloomberg allegedly browbeat a saleswoman in front of other employees. He’d just heard that the woman was having trouble finding a nanny, according to the lawsuit.

“It’s a fucking baby! All it does is eat and shit! It doesn’t know the difference between you and anyone else! All you need is some Black, who doesn’t even have to speak English, to rescue it from a burning building!” Bloomberg allegedly shouted.

The woman, who is not named, “cried at hearing her employer say such things to her, in so public a manner,” the lawsuit stated.

A spokesman for Bloomberg denied that the presidential candidate ever made any of the statements alleged in the suit.

As he runs for the Democratic nomination, Bloomberg’s track record on sensitive topics has come under heavy fire. In addition to allowing a sexist culture to thrive at his namesake company, he is accused of fostering racist attitudes and racist policies as New York City mayor ― a post he held for a dozen years. Because he is self-funding his campaign, Bloomberg has been able to outspend his Democratic rivals by a shocking amount and raise his national profile in recent weeks.

During a campaign stop in Texas last week, Bloomberg launched a “Mike for Black America” initiative and apologized for previously defending the “stop and frisk” policing under his watch as mayor. New York City’s practice was declared unconstitutional in 2013 because it unfairly targeted people of color.
