Only ten of the Fortune 500 companies have minority top lawyers. That says a lot about racism in our society from the boardroom to the admissions boards to the first grade chalkboard. The 10 companies with minority GCs are: Sara Lee Corp., Dow Corning Corp., The New York Times Co., Abbott Laboratories, Cummings Engine Co, AutoNation, PPG Industries Inc., Comerica Inc, IKON Office Solutions Inc, and Texaco Inc. Also, Merck & Co. will join this exclusive group on December 1.
