Wachovia Invests Small Change Into Black Owned Bank

leave a comment »

Wachovia has invested $600K into Atlanta’s Black Owned bank Capitol City Bank and Trust. I don’t know if I should be wowed about this or disappointed. I mean, come on now. Wells Fargo, Wachovia’s parent, received hundreds of millions in bailout money and only gives Capitol City $600K. $600K is one person’s house in Atlanta. In some places in Atlanta, that wouldn’t even buy the house and in the San Francisco Bay Area, that’s an average 3 bedroom home built in the 1970’s.

I mean, I’m happy that Capitol City got the funding but this is mere change to Wells Fargo/Wachovia. I’m not sure if Wachovia is looking for a pat on the back or good will PR but at least this satisfies that if nothing else. At any rate, I’m happy for a little of something but I respect for.

Atlanta areas declared disaster area due to floods

leave a comment »

The White House has announced that Atlanta area counties have been declared major disaster areas due to the excessive flooding going on in Georgia. Black people don’t have such a great feeling about FEMA but FEMA is the agency of record to handle the funding of people who are displaced and homeless due to this flood. I can only pray and hope that it’s not handled the way Hurricane Katrina was handled in New Orleans.

FEMA also handled the distribution of monies during that flood and almost everyone that I spoke to who came to Atlanta from New Orleans got very little in the way of help. You can apply for help and reach FEMA at Disaster Assistance or by calling 1-800-621-FEMA(3362) or 1-800-462-7585 (TTY) for the hearing and speech impaired. The toll-free telephone numbers will operate from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. (local time).

Let’s hope FEMA does better this time with residents of the following Atlanta counties: Carroll, Cherokee, Cobb, Douglas, and Paulding.
