    answer this question

    in the black community, which flavor of soda is preferred

    orange
    grape
    strawberry
    cola
    lemon-lime
    colt 45 malt


    let us know your answer
    That is the most ignorant example I have ever seen.

    I'm talking about a test for eligibility for employment with a fire department, police department, etc.

    I'm not talking about an ignorant on the spot racial stereotype question type of bull**** test.

    Edit to add: By the way, thanks for ignoring everything else I said in my post.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Doesn't forcing them to hire specific races make it racist? This seems to be discriminating against white, asian, middle eastern, and native american applicants.

    I don't even know. Sounds quota-like. Where'd they come up with that number?

    I wonder how many more decades we're going to continue mistaking class and intellectual differences for race differences...

    This is what things like this all boils down to. Some judge believing that minorities simply can not get along in life without his help.

    Not to mention, someone had to bring this before the judge... judges don't go out yanking people into court to fit their own social agenda.

    So, prior to some judge believing that minorities simply can not get along in life without his help....

    Some minorities believed that they simply could not get along in life without the government's help.

    Imagine that......

    In the age of, "THE GOVERNMENT WILL HELP YOU!" style of thinking.

    Exactly....

    Even if you take the judges statement about the test to mean that it isn't accurately testing people on knowledge needed to be considered a candidate for employment in a fire department (and WTF would a lawyer know about what skills are needed to be a firefighter).. It is STILL a huge LEAP of logic to make any connection between the test not accurately reflecting knowledge needed for the job, and the test is unfairly made with some intent to leave blacks and latinos out of the job pool.
