It's the Baltimore Fire Department's preferential recruitment that's racist

November 17, 2011

Let me get this straight, a black firefighter serving in a position created for him to lead recruitment efforts to hire more minorities like him, is claiming racism? ("Two top fire jobs to blacks," Nov. 16.) Well, he is correct, that system of selective racial recruitment couldn't be more racist, but in a haze of politically correct mumbo-jumbo, that glaring fact is taboo!

On top of this, the other black deputy is promoted to another non-existent position, cut during fiscal cuts years back! Is the city in better fiscal shape now?
