The National Urban League gave Eli Lilly and Co. its highest corporate honor today for helping with a health outreach program to African-Americans.

Just two weeks ago another venerable civil rights group, the NAACP, backed a lawsuit filed for current and former Lilly employees that claims they were treated unfairly.

Whatâ??s your take? Is Lilly friendly to minorities? Read the story.
  • Having an honor bestowed to the company for their outreach program to Aftican-Americans and at the same time (possibley) discriminating in their employee base are 2 different things. One can do a good thing on the outside and have a mess at home.
  • Wasn't Lilly founded by a Confederate soldier?
  • What does that have to do with anything? That is similar to saying that Volkswagen is run by Nazis....
