A judge has ruled that the New York Fire Department discriminated against blacks and latinos in their hiring practices. The reason? The minorities claim the test to become a firefighter is unfair because exams had little to do with firefighting and instead focused on cognitive and reading skills. They claim that white people are more likely to pass the test.

So are the minorities admitting they are less intelligent than whites? They certainly have the same opportunity to learn basic reading skills as anyone else, public education. It simply amazes me that they can use the excuse that a test for basic cognitive and reading skills is discriminatory. If a white man fails the test, no problem. A black man fails the same test it's discrimination. Where does this end?

Here's a link to the story:

Go be racist in the new York forum then, this is not relevant to Huntington! We don't want your kind around here, just another idiot trying to stir up negativity for those that get along with others regardless of race! Take it somewhere else.

Racist. I know plenty of intelligent minorities. You would go to a big city and be a minority there so maybe they were referring to you.

This is VERY relevant to Huntington. If other races and dumber in NY, they're likely dumber everywhere. Fact is: they ARE dumber simply due to a cultural disdain for education. If you don't believe me, ask any teacher & they will tell you. Education starts and ends at home. Most minority parents either don't get that or they are openly hostile to higher learning. As a wise man once said "the world needs ditchdiggers too"

This is a relevant story to anyone in this country. If you take my comment as racist, you are ignorant. There are plenty of intelligent people of all races. The point is lawsuits like this do nothing but push races apart. When the basis of your lawsuit is that blacks and Latinos can't pass a cognitive skills and reading test, what are you saying about those races? They make it sound like those entire groups are uneducated. Just like your post proves you are judgmental and unable to understand the satire with which my original post was written.

Racist I am not. What is racist is saying that you don't have to pass an intelligence test if you are black or Latino.

I don't think the article was referring to me, as it specifically said "blacks and latinos" of which I am neither. Way to show your ignorance.

While I don't agree with the tone of your post, you are correct when you say there is a disdain for education by some minority groups. A lot of this seems to come from the racism that minorities have toward whites. A lot of minorities are brought up to distrust society, educators, police, and "whitey" in general. As long as that continues, there will always be racism. And that is exactly what the black leaders want, because without racism they have no job.

There's got to be more to the judgement than that. I would imagine that reading is crucial to being a fireman. Most containers are labeled as to their contents and firemen would need to be able to instantly assess the safety of them, just for one example.

They shouldn't have testing anyway. It discriminates against people who aren't qualified for the job!
