Mayor Michael B. Coleman stood disheartened last month as he stared out at graduating classes of police officers and firefighters, seeing that nearly all were white men.

Only the best should be hired for any position.
Training for these positions should occur prior to hire, not after.
First responders are professionals. Color has nothing to do about it period.
Mayor Coleman should be impeached for inciting racial tensions in the community. Replace him with someone who actually wants what is best for the community, and not someone pandering for votes for his snappy job.
Diversity politics includes preferential employment for Diversity people. It is.also referred to as reverse racism or reverse sexism. It is legal because diversity victim cult people are the organized majority of voters in the US and Israel.

Let the nixxers continue to drive the COTA buses as they seem to be doing at a fast pace lately. They are at a comfortable working location while in their own environment. The only place they have adapted to in a police car is locked in the back seat area.

And you have adapted to locking your car door when a black pulls up beside you, Nancy.

Is Mayor Coleman a racist?
Just as we are getting to a point in society where the race card has all but lost its credibility, Columbus Mayor Michael B. Coleman decides to double down.
Mayor Coleman is all over television proclaiming that the quality of a studentís education, in the Columbus Public School system, should not depend on the color of their skin. This only days after he bitches that the most recent graduating classes of Police and Firefighters were mostly ďwhite menĒ. What exactly is the message you are trying to send? Race only matters when it fits your agenda?
The quality of our safety forces should not depend on the color of their skin either. Mayor Coleman needs to apologize to our first responders for his inconsiderate comment, and leave the school system to those elected to run it. Itís time to call or fold Mayor Coleman, itís your choice, whatís your play?

Are you kidding? That would really scare the s--- out of the rodeo bull.

There are laws, even in Missouri, protecting animals from torture.

Coleman is doing a horrible job.

Just ask any Muslim. How many Muslim cops and firefighters are employed by the cesspool, Columbus? They can get good scores on a test too!

Muslims drive the taxi cabs, not the police cruisers or ambulances. Not fair, now is it?

How about constant pull-overs and tickets by predominantly black cops who grew up in urban areas? Would that suffice for you and your neighbors?

Well, blacks have to deal with predominantly white cops who grew up in suburbia, and they have zero experience dealing with the black population at large. More tickets and pull- overs are done to hard working non- criminal blacks than drug seizures or gang member arrest. It does make a difference of the race and cultural experience of the cop regarding certain neighborhoods.
