Federal Judge Imposes Racial Quota on FDNY, Responding to Minorities Who Failed Entrance Exams, July 16, 2012, CBS News.
A federal judge is ordering the New York City Fire Department to implement racial quotas to address grievances from minorities who failed entrance exams.
On July 5 in Brooklyn, Nicholas G. Garaufis, a Clinton-appointed judge for the Eastern District of New York, issued a ruling that requires two of every five newly hired fireman to be black and one of every five, Hispanic—until the department has fulfilled the court-ordered quota of 186 black and 107 Hispanic hires.
The ruling allows back pay—totaling an estimated $128.7 million—for minorities who failed written tests.
The court order is a response to a lawsuit alleging that two placement exams (Written Exams 7029 or 2043) for the FDNY were discriminatory against blacks and Hispanics, because fewer minorities passed the exam than whites.
This is beyond insane.
We are living in a nightmare.
The same version test was given to every aspirant firefighter, many passed, some did not. Because blacks and hispanics apparently did not pass such test, and White men did, well, that means that the test ipso facto is racist.
Not only are racial quotas imposed...
Not only will these new "firefighters" (the quotation marks are apt here) become millionaires...
It gets better:
Further, Judge Garanufis ruled that minorities who were not hired because they failed the entrance exams must be paid a “retroactively higher salary” and receive “retroactive seniority” once they are hired through the new quota system. Retroactive seniority affects accrual of vacation and sick leave, among other benefits.
They will be hired on better terms than the (White) people who DID pass the test!
This... this is beyond the pale.
There was a joke in the old country about people who pushed harder and harder, like little kids trying to find the limit of what they can fuck up. The parents usually set a limit, with perhaps the most liberal ones having enough once their house burns down (oy!).
The joke's on us - there is no limit!
"Flash mobs" robberies of 30+ "keeedz", "knockout kings", "polar bear hunting", lets punchout whitey, and now, rewarding failure.
Isn't race defined to be a social construct, an ilhttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.giflusion (PBS vies on race, worth a gander)?
If race is an illusion, a social construct, then how do we explain this?
The whole fucking test.
This is insanely easy and only a complete moron could get less than 25% correct.
This is reading comprehension stuff; perhaps easier than testing for your driver's license.
