Russ Wasendorf, chairman and chief executive officer of PFGBest poses at the new building nearing completion in Cedar Falls, Iowa. Employees of the Iowa-based brokerage firm that has been unable to account for $220 million in customer money found Wasendorf in his car at company headquarters, with a tube connecting the vehicle's tailpipe to the interior.
Just look at the guy. He looks perfectly white. He is a man you can trust. He worked hard to get to the top. America is a great and fair country. A man can make a man of himself here. Only lazy people fail. That's how he looks like. But this is how my mind works: If anyone does the research, if anyone added up the total value of what, say, was stolen by 80 percent of the black thieves serving hard time, I'm sure you will find it doesn't equal the amount that this one white thief stole over the period of 20 years. He got away with it for 20 years. And the money is gone with the wind. And, at the end of the day, no will demonize this man's appearance or the color of his skin.
