What are your thoughts on banks planning on hiring more black workers and even tethering bonuses to the number of black workers they hire to promote this?

Patently ridiculous. Especially as half of them were only kept afloat by public funds in the first place. Surely such institutions should be attempting to hire based on competence, not melanin content?

I agree and believe in meritocracy too but what would the solution be to deal with this problem. It would probably have to start with better opportunities earlier on in their career such as university allocation and even to an extent school allocation. Or some other solution? Or leave it as it is?

It really depends if you see a problem or not. Given i don't believe in being given jobs simply by virtue of race i don't see one.
However, i assume you're alluding to the problem of not insubstantial numbers of minorities being trapped into the poverty cycle? In which case whilst yes something needs to be done i don't believe discrimination is the answer (given job hunting is, by definition, a zero sum game) prejudicing someone in favour of someone else doesnt appear to do much more than move the problem.
