How to Become a Bounty Hunter



A 1947 Memo Shows FBI Trained Agents to Exploit Perceived Weaknesses of Minority Groups

FBI agents were trained to exploit the perceived weaknesses of various minority groups, including Mexicans, Catholics and black people, according to a bureau memo from 1947, the U.S. News & World Report writes.

Compiled for the FBI’s field agents, the memo describes Mexicans as “slow to respond.”

Catholics, according to the report, are easier to get information from, especially after leaving a confessional booth.

Phony insurance salespeople can easily dupe African-Americans into giving them information, according to the report.
