A top FDNY official says its most definitely acceptable to exclude a white firefighter from a ceremonial unit based solely on his skin color...
Cecilia Loving, the departments chief diversity and inclusion officer, is defending a decision to kick Lt. Daniel McWilliams one of three firefighters in the iconic 9/11 Ground Zero flag-raising photo off a color-guard procession so it would be all-black.
Loving testified at a state Divsion of Human Rights trial on McWilliams complaint that he was the victim of racial bias.
When McWilliams showed up at a 2017 memorial mass to honor deceased members of the Vulcan Society, a fraternal group of black FDNY firefighters, he was barred from holding a flag in the color guard.
Sullivan called the rejection of McWilliams deplorable, and evidence of a stark double standard in the FDNY.
After filing his complaint, McWilliams was the target of retaliation and intimidation by Wilsons supporters, Sullivan argues. One put his hands on McWilliams, and said, Ive heard about you, they told me youd act this way, and now you know me.

Another example of Black Privilege.
Another example of white timidity.
Yep, what you said.
The Black Supremacy version of “Por la Raza, todos.”

I think I see the problem, Jim.
Black dems only see blacks....Why would we be surprised at anything else...
Racist government in action...again.
We have these nutty women in power all over this country. Coast to Coast and border to border.. Look at Seattle and St. Louis.
Racism: OK for some.
Dont worry when it comes time.... they will be just like the NFAC Not F#@$&ing around Crew which shot their own members by accident when they faced off against the 3%
A) black is really representative. ../s
This country is gone.
So if I were to ask for an all-white color guard, that would not be discriminatory either ...?
I’m from NYC originally. That town needs to die.
Don’t worry the elites plan to take care of this little woman problem with a national requirement of conversion to Islam. That will calm the little ladies down.
Is it any mystery that these freshly minted black racists are all Democrats?
