If Fire Commissioner Dan Nigro meets goals he announced at a City Council hearing last week, more than half the city

I thought everybody was equal?
Some animals are more equal than others.
Put down on the application that you identify as a black, female, lesbian Muslim.
>>The article goes on to say that Dan Nigro will not call his diversity goals “quotas”.<<
It is impossible for me to be the first to note the irony of his name.
They already skimmed down the written rest because minority men complained it was racist.
Then when they reach their affirmative action goals, they’ll find for some mysterious reason they have to send more people to each fire to get the job done, so then they’ll hire even more minorities and women. Makes perfect sense.
The answer is an unqualified yes.
That is the whole point of "diversity", to promote or hire based on skin color or sex, because the advocates of that approach feel that the value in having people of different backgrounds brings more value than having objective tests that quantify who the best candidates are.
Which is patently false. There is no value inherent in having people from every race, creed, ethnicity, and sex in any given job. None.
So the answer is yes, they will bypass the best firefighters to meet their diversity goals.
Will the FDNY bypass the best firefighters to meet its diversity goals? YES, by definition.
Since there is no scientific test administered to determine race, applicants should all just claim to be a minority, whether they are or not.
As others have noted this runs into the self-identification buzzsaw.
Simply self-identify as a black female. Muslim for extra points.
I agree———and when the next census is taken every single citizen of the USA should identify as a “preferred” minority.
This insanity has got to stop.
Yep. It’s all about diversity not ability. Let’s see what happens when some liberal lawmaker’s house is on fire and the diversity crew shows up. It’d be just like a Three Stooges movie.
So if you live in a white neighborhood the fire dept won’t show up?
“So if you live in a white neighborhood the fire dept wont show up?”
It will be considered a “no go” zone./s
I'm gonna go with a yes there
“Diversity” has become a dirty word. Applicants for such positions should NEVER be given a priority based on race, either they meet the standard requirements or they don’t.
Chourline Holder and Michael (tragic) johnson....Affirmative action firefighters..
Neither one can do the job..Both are hired..
Antoinette Frank..Affirmative action cop...Kills father,white male partner and 2 restaurant owners..Cops told she was psycho,didn’t care..Was a two-fer for diversity..
Kevin Gaines...LA black cop shoots white motorist in road rage..White motorist kills cop..White guy is cop,too....Kevin Gaines family gets millions from city,white cop,Frank Lyga,hung out to dry by city ...
Killer King hospital run by black nurses and doctors shut down after Edith Rodriguez dies in their waiting room...Vomits blood,cops called to arrest her,has heart attack as cops haul her away,dies in waiting room..
Affirmative action gives jobs to minority groups and women who can’t do the job but love the perks....
