Minorities Could Not Pass The Test? Tough Shit. Welcome to the Real World Morons!
Federal Judge Orders NYFD To Hire Two Blacks And One Hispanic For Every Five New Hires, $128.7 Million In Back Pay For Minorities Who Failed Written Exams…
Nothing is more enraging than affirmative action.
(CNSNews.com) – 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.
The Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division is responsible for prosecuting cases under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The DOJ claims the written exams had an “unlawful disparate impact,” causing fewer minorities to be hired.
