Re: White firefighters win Supreme Court appeal

Watching this now on Fox... Juan Willams is saying that the Supreme Court got it wrong today...... STFU Juan.... I'm sorry but you shouldn't descriminate against anyone based on race, and I think that Title 7 rules at least need a re-vamp if not a complete overhaul. If the rules make anything harder for any race to get something it is wrong. The system is broken.....

Ever notice that the biggest racists aren't white?

Re: White firefighters win Supreme Court appeal

Why would anyone accept a job based on color? If you do then you have to accept the fact that you got the job because you were dumber than any of the other appilicants. ???????????

I'm surprised Juan went that way.

Sotomayer has a history of striking down lawsuits stemming from racial issues and not siding w/ the minorities. This is the only one where she sided on the perceived 'race' side but that is not the true story. She actually sided w/ the city to have a right to protect itself from lawsuits. She was allowing the city to guard itself against frivolous lawsuits. Didn't work obviously as then the white guys sued. Probably didn't see that coming.

This was an important ruling because it sets precedent for all Affimative Action being struck down.

Anyways, the sooner they 100% remove any bias for race, sexuality, religion, sex, etc the better. Affimative Action is a blight on this nation.

I'm officially...Stroke-less.

Re: White firefighters win Supreme Court appeal

Anyone see Al Sharpten (spelling) yet on this, Oh Ya his is dealing with MJ issues. Remember MJ was just misunderstood, and he's not a freak. Go Al, you only see him at these kinds of issues. Why is there a BET award, what would happen if we had a White Entertainment Awards show. I am in the Fire service. I back in the 80's could not get a job to save my life. I went all over the western states testing, interviewing, taking PT test. My average score was in the high 90's. But, I never got a job until I put in 10yrs with Cal-Fire and was able to move to another department. Ya the system need work. My 2 cents
