In court documents, the city said of the judge's finding of bias: "Under the Court's faulty analysis, any rational jury would necessarily find that the City deliberately used facially neutral exams to suppress black employment even as it conducted a targeted multi-million-dollar minority recruitment campaign, enlisted Columbia University to study methods of maximizing FDNY diversity, increased the minority composition of its other uniformed services, engaged an expert with a mandate to design an improved exam, and devised a panoply of other devices to diversify the FDNY's ranks"

I find it a little confusing. The FD apparently made efforts to diversify their ranks. But that was not enough because their dared to have entrance exams (shock! shudder!). I had to pass through numerous exams in my life and it never occurred to me that I was doing it on racially-selective paper or something.

I can't believe this is happening.
