Jesse Jackson calls on Asian automakers to diversify
Now Jackson is calling on Asian automakers to increase the number of ethnic minorities among their staff and management. He points to how Honda, Hyundai, and Kia currently have very few blacks and latinos among their U.S. executives, saying that the companies should be as sensitive to employment practices as Ford and General Motors. While there has been no official response from Honda and Kia at the time of this post, Hyundai responded to Jackson's statement, arguing that it does have minority executives.
