Judge: Chicago Firefighters' Exam Biased
    #3962196 - 03/23/05 11:43 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Quote:

A lawsuit filed by black applicants alleged the exam's cutoff point for "well-qualified" applicants produced a pool of 1,782 candidates that had five times more whites than blacks.

Murphy said he would seek damages on behalf of the qualified black applicants, including millions of dollars in back pay that would have gone to the 132 firefighting positions blacks would have won in a fair system.


Clyde Murphy, attorney for the plaintiffs, said it was an important victory for the applicants, who scored between 65 and 88 and fell in the "qualified" category.


Yes, that is 65%






Apparently now if a certain group performs badly on tests, it is because the tests are rigged and not because these groups have serious social problems. Thank God i am moving out of Chicago this summer, these fucking people are crazy.

Being qualified for the job doesn't mean you're going to get it. Stupid ass people who can't get a job just want a quick buck. Fuck 'em.

At least we will "feel" good while our house burns down. Or they can't perform CPR or handle a defribulator.

Maybe this has something to do with the fact that there is almost 5 times as many white people as black people.
