Once again, we have the unseemly spectacle of Blacks who can't pass promotion exams wanting to blame the exams. In this case, it's Boston cops.
A while back it was firefighters in, well, pretty well every city in America.
Ya know, boys, I think the steam has run out of that particular victim train. Not every group is equally talented at everything. That's called "keepin' it real." People who are not drinking kool-aid know this as a matter of everyday observation. And of course when Blacks predominate in certain fields of endeavor, do we have Whites or Asians whining to the judge?
I recall a passage from one of (Black American) Thomas Sowell's books about culture, race and economy. One tribe in a newly independent African state, a tribe whose academic achievements were quite underwhelming compared to another, complained that the more accomplished tribe was getting most of the new civil service positions. Their argument: "Just because we are less qualified is no reason to refuse to hire us. We deserve jobs, too."
Is there a gap, lack, problem, lag, failure or pathology that does not get blamed on the R word? No one believes it anymore except some of you.
It makes you look undignified and embarrassing.
PS. The same kind of stuff here. If the admission rates should reflect demographics, then so should the graduation rates, right? So we'll have to make sure that the 27% of Blacks who (according to the Division of Equity and Inclusion) don't finish at Berkeley get to graduate. It's only fair, after all...So I suggest than any White or Asian student who supports affirmative action should be given the chance to transfer their diploma to a Black student who was so unfairly deprived of one.
