Boston black cops can't pass written test ... so they get "interviews" instead.

    More affirmative action. Blacks are always at the bottom of every test whether it's an IQ test or the SAT or ACT or LSAT or police test or firefighter test. They can't make it on ability .

    If 2 criminals are working together selling crack and you catch one criminal with 5 pieces of crack and your partner catches the other criminal with 3 pieces of crack. How many pieces of crack does the group of criminals have?

    A - 1
    B - 4
    C - 8
    D - 10

    Why is this in politics and not race relations? Also, your title is misleading.

    Because everyone knows only white men are smart enough to pass a written exam.

    Life in a nation supposedly where all men were created equal is great, aint it?

    Obama wants equality in school disciplinary actions, too. So the white kid who gets caught chewing gum in class gets a two week suspension, but the black kid who knifes another kid in the locker room will get a single after school detention. Its all in the numbers. Fewer whites commit serious schoolhouse infractions so the punishments meted out have to be graver for whatever infractions they commit.

    Is there anyone who DOESN'T think a police force works most effectively if it includes a range of different races and ethnicities?

    Because if we all agree that we need Asian, Black, Hispanic police as well as whites, then all we need to discuss is how best to achieve that goal.

    Written tests are no mesasure of what a good cop is.
    This nation is full of "leaders" and others that are far, far educated past their intelligence.
    Presence in the community and the respect that comes with that as a good, honest, hard working cop is more valuable to fight crime than a test.
    We are an over tested society.
    Look how it is working for us.
