RE :”While taking some flak for doing so, City of Phoenix officials are standing by their decision to accept non-swimming minorities as pool lifeguards.
“The problem with requiring swimming proficiency as a condition of employment is that minorities would be under-represented among those we hire,” City Parks and Recreation Administrator Alfredo Zote observed. “The Mayor has asked us to strive for a workforce that mirrors the composition of the City’s population. We can’t do that if we impose qualifications that have a disproportionate impact on any racial or ethnic groups.”

This is one that is so outrageous and perfect (for us to repeat) that I am naturally hesitant to even believe it is true.

You CANT get a better example than this.

Here in Maryland my favorite swimming hole 100 years history which was an absolute heaven in the summer was closed 2003 because an adult swimming across drowned (it had many posted signs 'swim at your own risk') and her parents sued,
And yes when all those years it was open before 2003 I went a few times a week every summer for a decade and saw very few blacks were swimming in it because few knew how to swim. they stuck with the pools.

The new America.

Stranger things have happened, and I expect there will be more.

The US forest service requires MORE latino hire ons, at least they did a few years ago, and they just came right out and said it.

For an illegal alien to qualify for SSI, he/she is a shoe in to get it because not being able to speak English is considered a disability.

I'm speechless sick... I suspect this national hysteria is getting toward the end... When 'officials' are being this stupid in order to discover discrimination - when it gets this frantic - the scam's about over...

Yes, we all oppose real discrimination. ( I was active in the civil rights movement in the 60's when it mattered - and was very real ) But this? This isn't based on discrimination it's based on 'can my outrage about perceived racism trump yours?" Am I a more 'guilty white' than you are? Can I hate myself more? Hand me the whip I'll use it on my back. Really, liberals would be considered sick if they weren't already so creepy.

And yeah, when real discrimination was happening in this country years ago this type of official was happily part of the 'in' group ( the racists) of his time - just like he's happily part of the 'in' group (liberal guilty white masochists) now... His type stands with whatever thug group has the power at the moment. Low class wannabee..

So is this for real?

Lifeguards that can’t swim, cause some just have to be (insert “minority” group)?
