‘Banking While Black’ In Pacific Beach
A lawyer who spent nearly 2 decades in the finance industry claims he was treated with racist behavior at a local bank. He went into the bank hoping to cash an insurance settlement check. He said the bank’s assistant manager not only refused to cash the check, but also accused him of stealing. And, from the KPBS Investigates podcast, the story of Aaron Harvey: a San Diego native who spent seven months in jail, charged with conspiracy for belonging to the same gang as others who carried out a series of gang shootings. A judge eventually dismissed the charges against him and he is now graduating from UC Berkeley.
