Netflix Set To Invest In Black-Owned Banks

Netflix has announced that it will be investing in Black-owned banks to help close the wealth gap between Black and White America.

The media-services provider and production company headquartered in Los Gatos, California, plans to deposit two percent of its cash, or an estimated $100 million, into Black-owned financial institutions and community development organizations.

The company argued that these institutions have a better track record of lending to minority borrowers than mainstream consumer banks.

Minority-owned banks and credit unions represent just one percent of America’s total commercial banking assets.
