He's been in-charge for the past 12 years, yet for some reason time for action is now??

There are no blacks among 196 deputies, whose jobs are the most visible publicly in the department, and he has been completely in-charge for the past 12 years??????????

I guess for blacks to get in the MCS, they have to start out by cleaning the toilets.

Again here is the problem. To become a cop you have to at least have a High school diploma "no a ged won't work". You can not have a criminal record. You have to pass a psych exam. Also they investigate immediate family and factor in their records before hire. Now check stats for african americans in the categories I just mentioned and you will see there is slim few who meet all of the above requirements.

How many blacks apply for the job that are qualified???? Until that question is answered arguments from either side are moot. I don't know that answer and neither do you. It is ignorant and misguided to say anybody needs to go and search for applicants of a certain race.
I would also like to point out that you are the one who often says that the all white sheriffs department should police the city instead of the racist RPD. So which is it Rhonda????

Are you telling me that the black woman in the story had a high school diploma and a clean record and the only job she could get is cleaning toilets??

Well the RPD just had a record number of minorities in their last class, how is that possible if black don't qualify??
Well lets see, what would we rather have racist cops that beat up pregnant woman and handicap men, and boys waiting for a bus, or racist cops that don't hire blacks???

How many qualified blacks APPLY?That is the question. Neither one of us has that info so neither one of us can make any accusations one way or the other...
Stop spin doctoring and bringing up irrelevant things. You assume everything is about race with zero proof.
( to comment on your irrelevant comment) Even the dumb broad who you are talking about admitted it was largely her fault...If she can accept blame so should you.

The story is about Sheriff of Monroe County Rip Van Winkle, who just awoke to find no blacks around him and while he doesn't know who to blame, he wants change.

Sorry bad wording, it's about race, but not necessarily racism as Rhonda want's to make out to be.

If you think its just by chance that he doesn't have any black sheriff patrols, then you are in are just playing stupid like he is.

He know this for the past 12 years and did nothing, or he did something to make sure it was this way. And now for some reason he wants change??

And only a racist would come to the conclusion of making a toilet cleaner a cop, when trying to find a good black person. Do they really think the best black person is the toilet cleaners??

I'd rather he take look at the race ratio for all the County Toilet Cleaners, ask why they are all black and do what he can to try to recruit a few whites to clean the toilets.

It is not his job or anybodies to actively seek an applicant of one particular race. Racial quotas are complete BS. Like I said without the Knowledge of the number of qualified black applicants neither one of us can make a conclusion. You're jumping to conclusions with only anecdotal evidence. You could be right but there is no real evidence either way. If there is show it. If you had any, I'm sure you would already posted it.....
You're just trying to start trouble plain and simple. As you always do.. Just because all sheriffs are white means nothing in and of itself.
