A civilian employee of the New York City Police Department is claiming the department discriminates against minorities, including blacks and Hispanics. The civilian claims the department actively dismisses minority applicants.
The NYPD uses a “biased investigation process” to boot civil service candidates from working with the department, and doesn’t give those workers enough time to challenge the decisions made against them.
The legal claim from Arabia Jennings says she was sidelined and sent to work in a rodent-infested storage closet after she raised alarms about the department’s hiring practices.
As a white male police detective, who has been discriminated against since Barack Obama took office, the only thing I can say to Ms. Jennings is, “Welcome to the party, pal!”
Jennings rose through the ranks to eventually supervise the NYPD’s Civil Litigation Unit, where staffers review recommendations to disqualify civil service candidates from working with the department.
Jennings, who is black, voiced concern about “a disproportionate number of African-American and Latino candidates [that] were being disqualified from employment with the NYPD,” she said in the Manhattan Federal Court lawsuit. (H/T – Mike AKA Proof)
If I’m going to be honest and fair with you, I have little sympathy for a department which arrests Jews for attending their Synagogues, or ejecting crying toddlers from restaurants because they were not fully vaccinated.
