Thread: Discrimination Ruling

  1. #1

    Default Discrimination Ruling

    Updated: February 9, 2012, 7:36 AM
    "Twelve white Buffalo firefighters will get an average of $230,430 each in back pay, pension benefits and damages -- a total of almost $2.77 million -- for emotional distress because the City of Buffalo illegally passed them over for promotions, a state judge has ruled."

    So, what are your thoughts? It's perfectly fair to screw some people and not others or all have to follow the same rules?

    The job should ALWAYS go to the most qualified applicant.
    Doing so would have avoided this entire debacle.

    The deepest insights come from trying to see the unifying root of two apparently antagonistic branches.

    I would argue with "most qualified" until someone develops a method for determining the "most qualified". Determining "qualified" isn't so tough.

    I disagree with the concept of disparate results where if enough minorities don't win the promotion, or whatever, is invalide. I guess that means President Obama will never appoint me to high office. Oh, well, I'd be hated when I turned it down anyway.

    That's an incredibly racist and politically-incorrect thing to say. Blacks need special treatment and leg-up programs to help them compete with all the other races according to liberals.

    The sad thing is that most liberals are unable to even see that they are the real promoters of racism.

    But apparently openly racist policies against whites are justified when they are intended to fight against traditional racism- whether supposed or imagined.

    I could at least respect liberals that wanted to remove all references to race in laws, government funding, and school policies. But these types of liberals are few and far between.
