It is sad that the Left portrays itself as color blind, then supports affirmative actions, quotas, and lowering standards for certain “minorities”
The Dayton Police Department is lowering its testing standards for recruits.
It’s a move required by the U.S. Department of Justice after it says not enough African-Americans passed the exam.
Dayton is in desperate need of officers to replace dozens of retirees. The hiring process was postponed for months because the D.O.J. rejected the original scores provided by the Dayton Civil Service Board, which administers the test.
Under the previous requirements, candidates had to get a 66% on part one of the exam and a 72% on part two.
The D.O.J. approved new scoring policy only requires potential police officers to get a 58% and a 63%. That’s the equivalent of an ‘F’ and a ‘D’.
I am confused. Who, exactly does this help? It certainly does not help the police departments across the nation. It does not help the people being given jobs they are not qualified for either. All it does is to further dumb down this nation. That is the folly of the Left. They NEVER seek to raise up anyone, they always seek to lower standards, and that, in the end, will cost all of us.
Chalk it up to the latest example of the Leftists and their pursuit of equality of results and outcomes. Not equality of opportunity mind you, not equality in any other meaningful sense either.
