Alabama insurance company is trying to sell the right to write the insurance on your body
A black Alabama insurance agency is selling the right not to write insurance on the backs of people.
It is not a common practice in Alabama, but a business called ALICO is trying it.
It has an insurance broker, a doctor, a broker and a manager, according to the state Department of Insurance.
ALICO also sells insurance in Alabama.
“It’s kind of a big deal for us, because it’s something we’ve never done,” said Jim Johnson, the director of the insurance agency.
“If you don’t want to be sued, you don and it doesn’t cost you anything, you can not write insurance.”
Alabama’s insurance law requires the state insurance department to approve any insurance written by a white person on a person of color.
But in this case, it does not require the insurance company to do the same for an African American person.
The insurance company, Alabama Insurance Agency, said it would use its legal power to block the practice.
The Alabama Insurance Department says it has an active policy against racial discrimination.
But Johnson says the agency is not taking any action.
“We don’t have any plans to take any action against ALICO,” Johnson said.
Johnson says ALICO had an active insurance policy for a white male employee of its insurance company.
The company paid the employee for his work, but he didn’t write the policy.
“He didn’t have a plan to write it,” Johnson says.
He says the insurance agent also didn’t pay the company for any insurance it wrote on his behalf.
“I know the insurance officer was not happy, but I’m not upset,” he said.
ALICO said the policy would not cover any insurance coverage he wrote.
Johnson said the company is also not interested in covering any coverage he had written on his own behalf.
ALICE BROWN, ALICO’S ATTORNEY: They would have been sued, if it were to be proven they had violated their policy.
The law says you can’t be sued by another party for doing something that is against the law.
That’s what it says, that’s what we have been saying, is we’re not going to sue people.
The only thing that could be a violation of that policy is if they were doing something against the laws of the state of Alabama, which we are not.
ALINA RICHARDSON, ADMINISTRATIVE DIRECTOR, ALIC: The insurance agency has a policy of no discrimination against African Americans in insurance coverage, Johnson said, but it does have a policy that says you have to pay for any coverage that’s written on your behalf.
Johnson wants the insurance firm to be held accountable.
“You’re trying to force a white man to write a policy on behalf of a black person, and you’re trying on the taxpayers’ dime to do it, Johnson says, and that’s just outrageous.
ALICA’s CEO said that if the insurance office takes any action it will lose all of its business.
The business is not going anywhere.
The ALICO business is just a way for the insurance industry to make money, Johnson added.
