But good for him for using his enemies tactics against them.
I believe it’s likely.
In academia, reverse discrimination is rampant.
Dallas and Fort Worth both “decided” to select blacks for their next chiefs, Dallas’s also a woman.
No telling how many superior, qualified, in-house candidates who were white were passed over for these appointments.
Of course with a name like Salerno, the 'Sicilian' heritage might be a tough sell. Too bad his name is not Corleone.
happened to my father..
He was NYPD for 23 years. 17 years on the job, including 5 as an NYPD detective, he take the sergeants exam...he was bypassed for promotion by people who had half the job experience and got half the score on the test (42’s compared to my father’s 88) because he was white...they (my dad and others) sued the city and the lawsuit was thrown out thanks to quota hiring...this was mid-to-late 80’s..
The new haven firefighters suit from 5/6 years ago changed a lot of things...
190 million white people in this country should ALL file discrimination suits against an enemy government determined to marginalize us and favor ANY non-white over us.
Or better yet, we throw THEM out of their jobs and hire people who actually have OUR interests at heart instead of the entirety of the African and Indian continents.
In this day and age, very high probability he was discriminated against.
I had to wait approximately 5 years for promotion, because the State of New York gave extra affirmative action points to minorities on the Correctional Sergeant’s test. I had a 92, but they promoted people farther down on the list based on the extra points they gave them. I’m a white female, and there were a hell of a lot less of us in the department in those days, than blacks and hispanics, especially if you count the prisons/work release facilities in the New York City and upstate area. I not only lost the salary that would have come with the promotion, but I lost seniority to people who were promoted over me. Because of that, several were eligible to take the next Lieutenant’s test, and were promoted again.
It happened to my husband. He was supposed to become supervisor of a division in a quasi-governmental organization. A black chick with zero qualifications wanted the position so, instead of bucking the diversity cult, they gave her the job.
After four months the division failed. Instead of letting her go and replacing her with a competent person, they shut down the division. They had to let everyone go. It was easier than “singling her out” and causing a racial rukus, law suits, etc.
To mollify one litigious critter, several people suffered.
