'There was a young lady of Rigi' it will be recalled,'Who smiled as she rode on a tiger.
They returned from the ride With the lady inside,
And a smile on the face of the tiger.'

Putting the inmates in charge of a prison only spells disaster.

Every time an Article comes out with the Words Black or Africian American, all you see is the TRUE racists coming out commenting. When I see all the things that White Americans do, which are many, I don't see all the hate, it is always rationalized somehow. I don't see a lot of representation of America in Congress. All you mostly see is a bunch of corrupt White men taking money from special interest groups creating laws for their friends. Until most White Americans acknowledge the fact that they are prejudice toward Blacks and other Races, we really can't move forward as one Nation. By the way, all other Americans can claim their hertiage. "Irish, Italian-American".

First off, who is you people? I am sure there are a lot of your people, that is on the force that past the test, and are there to shoot any Black person they see whether justified or not (sole purpose)! Most police shooting are Whites shooting Blacks and they supposedly are well qualified. You'll have to get your Country back right?

To answer your question, 58% shouldn't be a passing score for any occupation. Maybe they should study more. Why are there so many White officer shooting Blacks in this Country?

By your comments, my military pal who was an outstanding individual would be classified as a racist. This Sgt. would literally tear up another black G.I. that used race as a crutch as to why he couldn't perform in the classroom or in the field. He didn't handle 'the poor is me' attitude very well from his fellow soldiers. None dare call him a racist! He excelled because he had no competition, regardless of color.

....wait a minute, I thought negroes DIDN'T want to be judged by that alone. How the fk do you appoint "more blacks" without committing racial discrimination?
It definitely is a condundrum. In the eyes of the minority population, racism only exists when a black is discriminated against when a white receives special treatment instead of a more qualified person and not the opposite. Reason ? To compensate for ancestors enslaved a century ago. Because they do not graduate from the educational system and are denied desired employment.?
