New Haven 20 court case

NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- The U.S. Supreme Court is slated to weigh in on a case involving New Haven firefighters that could impact history.The International Association of Black Professional Firefighters announced Wednesday that it wants to have its position on the record in the New Haven firefighters Supreme Court decision.In 2004, 20 firefighters sued the city. They claimed the city threw out promotional exams because the results didn't promote enough minorities.City officials said the decision was made to avoid being open to lawsuits from minorities under the Civil Rights Act.The 20 firefighters, who are not African-American, sued the city for reverse discrimination.But officials said New Haven's goal is to find top-notch captains through a process that is fair.The IABPF has asked the Supreme Court to have its opinion attached to the case before arguments are made.

Your thoughts?
It seems like reverse discrimination to me. Just because theres not enough minorities.

Spirit is on a distinguished road

Very very racist to me. Hope the firefighters win as it is a clear case of reverse racism.

I agree. Why should they be discriminated against? They have as much a right to be recognised as firefighters as all the other recognised firefighters do.

This is just like Bakke v. University of California. Discrimination is not allowing a specific group of people to have a right or job. If the majority of the people that pass the test are of one group, that's not discrimination, that just means they understand the material better.
