Checking that ethnicity box is never good. Check “other” and write in “American.” Just ask NYers who now must pay $98 million for a racist test!
Leftist act like they love diversity, but what they love is the money they can steal with “diversity.” Diversity is code word for “intimidation.”
Whether it’s Jesse Jackson’s most recent declaration that Silicon Valley tech companies are scheming not to hire black people, or the recent award of $98M to black and Latino firefighters for lack of diversity, it’s becoming ridiculous.
Let me get this straight. The way to punish the fire department is to tax the citizens of NY, which the lawsuit recognizes the city demographic is half black and Latino.
The egregious thing that the fire department did was to design a test that was racially biased. The test was considered too difficult for black and Latino test takers, ergo it was a RACIST test.
Because it certainly has nothing to do with the fact that blacks and Latinos are getting sub-par educations from sub-par schools. It can’t be the dumbing down of blacks and Latinos in the Liberal-controlled “wackademia.”
The Wall Street Journal discusses the dumbing down of blacks and Latinos in Alabama:
According to this article by Jamon Smith, “Beginning this fall, Alabama public schools will be under a new state-created academic accountability system that sets different goals for students in math and reading based on their race, economic status, ability to speak English and disabilities.” Alabama’s Plan 2020 “sets a different standard for students in each of several subgroups — American Indian, Asian/Pacific islander, black, English language learners, Hispanic, multirace, poverty, special education and white.”
Blacks and Latinos don’t have to be as smart, as we see in this “dumbing down” story from the Huffington Post:
Approved this week by the Florida Board of Education, the new race-based standards affect all 2.6 million students that attend the state’s 3,629 public schools. The mandate stipulates that by 2018, 90 percent of Asian students, 88 percent of white students, 81 percent of Hispanic students and 74 percent of black students are to be reading at or above grade level. The state also wants 86 percent of white students, 92 percent of Asians, 80 percent of Hispanics and 74 percent of blacks to be at or above their math grade level, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
Perhaps the tests should be given in Ebonics and Spanish, and then the playing field would be level?
One thing is for sure, and that is DISCRIMINATION has occurred, and it has nothing to do with the applicant, the school system, or Liberalism. It’s the TEST, and anybody associated with the test. So let the healing begin!
Now the FDNY must undergo court supervision for 5 years to make sure that they don’t discriminate against blacks and Latinos in hiring. That should make the citizens of NYC feel good. They now have an affirmative action fire department.
