Yes, Lloyds is in insurance, but the people working there today have no more connection to slavery than the people working at Insurance Journal. Hey, Wait! I have an idea for an article in Monday’s edition of Insurance Journal! June 19, 2020 at 1:33 pm Jon says: Like or Dislike: 2 0The people working there today have no connection to slavery? Their company directly benefited from the slave-trade. They are literally making money off of the backs of the slave trade. Your logic is wrong, as usual. How are you in insurance with this kind of faulty logic? Don’t you have ANY critical thinking ability? June 19, 2020 at 1:48 pm Craig Winston Cornell says: Like or Dislike: 0 1Two Laughs in ONE DAY! No one at Lloyds today is “literally making money off of the backs of the slave trade”. (maybe you don’t understand past tense . . .)

Maybe you don’t understand basic economics. Their company exists as it does today because of profits it made hundreds of years ago. If not for the slave trade, their company would be nothing compared to what it is today, which means they would likely not have employment at all. It’s pretty simple, you’re just uneducated. Where did you go to school? I hope you didn’t pay much for your education.

It has NOTHING to do with revenue from 100 years ago.

What are you even arguing dummy? June 19, 2020 at 4:39 pm MightyQuinn says: Like or Dislike: 0 2Jon, leave the insurance industry and work for a nonprofit cumbayaing everything. After this BS you have no future.

Just because you don’t like that younger, smarter, better looking people are joining your industry and happen to think your archaic views are idiotic doesn’t mean I’m not fit for your industry. I can school conservatives on here and write more business than most of you jokers any day of the week :) It’s called multi-tasking, something your generation doesn’t seem super capable of LOL sit down boomer Comment have been closed for this article.
