    Chicago will hire 111 bypassed black firefighters by March 2012 and pay at least $30 million in damages to some 6,000 others who will never get that chance, under a court order expected to be approved Wednesday by a federal judge.

    Noting that Chicago taxpayers are liable for an additional $500,000 in back pay for every month the hiring is delayed, Piers said, “The attitude of the Emanuel administration has been to attempt to resolve this as quickly as possible.”

    Would-be firefighters who have moved on to other careers or choose to bypass the jobs lottery for other reasons will receive cash awards of at least $5,000 per person. Chicago taxpayers will also be on the hook for $10 million to $20 million in back pension contributions for those who get jobs. That means the total cost could approach $50 million.

    The Chicago Fire Department’s age limit for new hires is 38, but that will not apply to the 111 black firefighters because the discrimination occurred before the cut-off was established.

    City to pay $30 million, hire 111 black firefighters - Chicago Sun-Times

    Yeah, but it'll buy their votes so, in liberal terms, it's a cheap settlement.

    Notice this type of racism always occurs in blue states.

    Yup, best way to hire people is through a lottery and defiantly should base eligibility on race....
    I have become immune to this kind of stupidity in today's America where it is racism if you do not hire a black person over a white simply because a black person is involved....

    Illinois isn't necessarily a "blue" state. The Chicago voting bloc is so powerful it determines statewide election outcomes.

    I wonder how black these guys need to be?

    Are they going to hire the blacker ones first?
