tl;dr

7 black firefighters want to sue the state of texas because they are made to take a test if they want to be in with a chance of promotion to captain.

Their lawyer claims that black people do worse on tests, therefore - tests are racist

The lawyer must've read the Bell Curve then which states that black people are dumber then white people.

As a Black person with several degrees in various fields (Math, Computer Programming, Religion and Philosophy), all I have to say is that they can kiss my BUTT!

I worked my tail off in college and grad school! And so did all the Black students who were in school with me. Sick and tired of dummies blaming race for their LACK of talent, intelligence and drive.

Rednecks blame Blacks and Hispanics. Poor Blacks blame Whites and Hispanics. Poor Hispanics blame Blacks and Whites. How about blaming yourself for the STUPID decisions YOU made over your life. Didn't study while education was free? Tough, your problem.

I know some folks had to drop out of school to support the family, however, as ADULTS we can go back to school. Go back to school, get a better education, and learn to take tests.
I'm more man than you will ever be, and more woman than you will ever get.

i completely agree with Amazonia. but for ppl it is a lot easier to point fingers in order to hide/excuse their incapacity. they fail to understand that when they point a finger to someone, three of their other fingers point back at them!

Lmao, i just got the thought of pointing fingers at people being not one but four, with the thumb tucked in.

Well not trying to start conflict but i have lived and texas and was surrounded by african americans (blacks) and since living there my respect for them and liking of them dropped way low because of there behavior and attitude and actions, now i know not all are like that but when you see a group of them always acting like they do that makes em all look like that..
