That's right. The hell with merit and the testing process. Have they not learned in sports when growing up that "everyone gets a trophy" even if you stink.

Haven't blacks already complained so much that the testing for those jobs had to be changed and made easier for them to pass? Hell, at some point they have to learn that you actually have to EARN some things in life and that life is not going to just hand you a "participation ribbon" for waking up! You actually have to work for what you have, at least in a few areas left in this life. Of course when we have half the country being shown that you can actually be paid just for waking up and have everything handed to you it's hard to teach people responsibility and any kind of work ethic......and of course respect!

Hey - The Firebugs haven't been in the news for quite a while, so it's understandable that they're now complaining about something that they haven't complained about before. When you're racist-oriented there's ALWAYS something new out there to get up your @$$.

Excellent comment.
Once again, some blacks just don't get it. You have to WORK for your 'place on the ladder' in ANY level of employment. They want everything handed to them or else they pull out that race card. It's pathetic why we have to put up with this all the time. The louder they scream the more they get. I think I'll try that!!

I scream, it's usually when I have a stone and can't pass it when I pee.

You've got to drink more cranberry juice. It's good for the kidneys and cuts down on those painful stones.
