A federal judge has ruled that fitness tests that women cannot pass at the same rate as men are a violation of federal law.
Judge Richard Matsch was born in 1930! He presided over the Oklahama City bombing case that saw Timothy McVeigh convicted in a trial that covered up a great deal of the truth.
At age 87, Matsch is still ruling from the bench. He’s now found that fitness tests that women can’t pass are discriminatory.
The test isn’t described in the story, but I probably couldn’t pass it either, but I’m not selfish enough to demand that standards be lowered for my benefit.
Putting unqualified women cops on the street is going to kill people. Matsch needs to retire and let someone with a stronger sense of logic rule from the bench.
A fitness test given to Colorado Springs police officers discriminated against women and violated civil rights laws, a federal judge ruled Wednesday in a two-year lawsuit.
The test “shamed and ostracized” the 12 plaintiffs – many of them decorated officers with decades of service – while providing “meaningless” results, ruled U.S. District Judge Richard Matsch.
Performing poorly on the test left officers at risk of losing their jobs, despite the benchmark scores being “arbitrary” and the evaluation having little to do with the officers’ everyday work, Matsch said. Significantly more women than men failed it.
“To retroactively impose that requirement on women who have invested their lives as career police officers is fundamentally unfair,” Matsch wrote.
The ruling that Colorado Springs violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 leaves the city on the hook for a possible payout to the plaintiffs for wage loss and emotional distress. A hearing on damages is expected to be set in the coming week.
A California civil rights advocate said it also sends a message to municipalities across the nation to avoid such fitness tests for potential hires and veteran employees.
“If municipalities are going to use tests like this, they have to make sure there’s a scientific basis behind them,” said Jocelyn Larkin, executive director of the Impact Fund. The organization helps bankroll civil-rights lawsuits, and it contributed $30,000 to this case.
Donna Dell’Olio, an attorney representing the women, praised the ruling as a victory for women seeking to join the force.
“The women are wonderful professionals, and all they wanted was to be able to serve crime victims and the citizens of Colorado Springs,” Dell’Olio said. “And now they’re going to be allowed to do that.”
Ten of the dozen plaintiffs remain on the force, Dell’Olio said. One has since moved to Wyoming, and another left the department amid fears she’d lose her job for failing the test.
“They did this at great peril to their careers,” Dell’Olio said. “And they did it for the younger women who are coming up behind them.”
A statement from the Police Department said “the city has received the ruling, is reviewing it, and evaluating the city’s options.”
The issue dates to 2009, when former Chief Richard Myers mandated all officers undergo fitness tests, and the department hired Human Performance Systems of Beltsville, Md., to create the evaluations. They included one-minute sit-up and push-up tests, as well as two running tests, one of which focused on agility.
Practice tests in 2013 showed deep disparities in women’s and men’s success rates, the lawsuit said.
Forty percent of women failed the test, compared with 9 percent of men. Women police recruits tested that year fared slightly worse, while men did slightly better.
Still, a 2014 order by Myers’ successor, Chief Pete Carey, mandated each officer pass the test annually. Officers who failed the first test were relegated to desk duty, while those who failed after six months of trying could be fired.
All 12 plaintiffs failed on the first try, including Maggie Santos, a lieutenant at the time overseeing the department’s Internal Affairs division.
She retired after 24 years in the department, taking a job as director of campus safety at a college. In leaving early, Santos said Wednesday that she left “significant” pension benefits on the table.
The risk of being fired without a place to go was too great, she said, especially as her kids neared college.
“It was horrible,” Santos said. “I didn’t want to leave. That isn’t when I had planned to retire. I still had more career in front of me, and it was taken.”
In issuing his ruling, Matsch relied on complex statistical analyses highlighting the disparities women faced.
He said some of the evaluations – such as the push-up test – favored men while “not being designed to evaluate an officer’s overall suitability for duty.”
The Police Department also erred in making the test a sole criterion for an officer’s firing, rather than as “one component,” he said.
In the process, Matsch noted that the Police Department’s use of a fitness test for current employees – not applicants – was unprecedented.
Santos said Matsch’s ruling was bittersweet.
“The reason why we did it was for the younger women,” Santos said. “They won’t appreciate it now when they’re in their 20s, but in 20 to 25 years, they’ll appreciate what we did, and we’re doing it for them.”
The Internet is fascinated by Olivia Jensen. When she first started modeling in 2011 she weighed in at 135 pounds. Since then, she’s put on weight.
There’s something that’s mentally unhealthy about this. There’s an effort to change what white males find sexually attractive. Olivia Jensen may be white but she’s cultivated a fat Negroid body.
I learned the meaning of a new word, which is based on Negro babble:
Phat Ass White Girl
Twerking is not white:
As Andrew Breitbart said, everything is downstream from culture.
Olivia Jensen and her popularity are a sign of a perverted American culture. She should not be held out as a role model for young white women, but she is.
How do we clean up our culture without a major shift?
By shaming and shunning these narcissistic losers, while elevating women and men of character. There’s something wrong with guys who worship this woman. It’s one thing to be a chubby chaser, but another to worship as goddesses these self absorbed brainless twits.
Children won’t eat unappetizing food. But with Michelle (aka Michael) Obama, it’s not really about children’s health. It’s about petty tyranny.
‘What is wrong with you?’: Michelle Obama savages Trump for gutting her legacy
Former first lady attacks president’s reversal of regulations to help improve school lunches: ‘Think about why someone is OK with your kids eating crap’
Michelle Obama has made her strongest political intervention since leaving the White House, stating bluntly at a health conference: “Think about why someone is OK with your kids eating crap.”
One of the former first lady’s signature legacies was an effort to reduce childhood obesity. Earlier this month, Donald Trump’s administration froze regulations that would cut sodium and increase whole grains served in school meals.
“We have a lot more work to do, for sure, but we’ve got to make sure we don’t let anybody take us back because the question is, where are we going back to?” Obama told a Partnership for a Healthier America summit in Washington.
“This is where you really have to look at motives, you know. You have to stop and think: why don’t you want our kids to have good food at school? What is wrong with you?”
The remarks prompted cheers and applause from a packed hotel ballroom. Seemingly liberated from her official role, Obama was by turns combative, exasperated, feisty, incredulous, passionate, peeved and sardonic.
The 53-year-old demanded: “And why is that a partisan issue? Why would that be political? What is going on? You know, now that’s up to moms. Moms, think about this. I don’t care what state you live in.
Take me out of the equation. Like me, don’t like me, but think about why someone is OK with your kids eating crap. Why would you celebrate that? Why would you sit idly and be OK with that?
“Because here’s the secret: if somebody is doing that, they don’t care about your kid, and we need to demand everyone to care deeply about kids. That’s all we have. So we should be driving this and every elected official on this planet should understand: don’t play with our children. Don’t do it.”
I left this comment at Yahoo using my old bigone4u screen name:
The liberals virtue signaling here are hilarious. They don’t care about children’s health and nutrition any more than Moochelle (aka Michael) cares. It’s all about Trump bashing. Let local schools and parents decide on what nutrition they provide their own children. They love their children. Liberals love only power and petty tyranny.
It looks like the Hindus have joined the Chinese in engaging in selective breeding to try to improve their human biological stock.
Only in America do we encourage our worst and lowest forms of humanity (subhuman, possibly) to outbreed our best and brightest.
The Hindus are factoring in mental, physical, and spiritual good health and superiority in their experiment in eugenics. That latter quality is often overlooked.
A Hindu nationalist organisation is promising to help Indian couples conceive “superior” babies with high IQs and fairer skin than their parents, sparking media criticism.
Karishma Mohandas Narwani, head of the Garbh Vigyan Sanskar project, said it advised prospective parents on how to undergo a “purification” process to ensure their babies were born free of all vices.
“We have to ensure the seed is good, which means the quality of the sperm and the ovum has to be top-class,” Narwani, a practitioner of Ayurvedic medicine, told AFP on Tuesday.
“If that is taken care of, then the baby will have the desired mental, physical and spiritual quality.”
She said couples could produce “superior offspring” by following the organisation’s advice on everything from diet to thinking good thoughts.
“Actually our aim is to produce superior offspring, full of values and culture. The secrets are all there in our ancient Hindu texts,” said Narwani.
The project, whose name translates as “scientific purification of the womb”, is based in Gujarat, the western home state of Hindu nationalist Prime Minister Narendra Modi. It is treating around 400 couples.
Narwani denied newspaper reports that it was linked to the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS), an influential right-wing Hindu organisation seen as the ideological fountainhead of Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party.
But she said she was working with the help of Arogya Bharti, a group often described as the health wing of the RSS.
Ashok Kumar Varshney, an RSS campaigner and secretary of Arogya Bharti, said the group’s methods made it possible for “parents with low IQ to have offspring with high IQ”.
“It is also possible for a dark-skinned couple to have fair babies,” he added.
The scheme was criticised in the Indian media, with one report saying it was “straight out of the Nazi playbook”.
Eugenics — the controversial belief that one could improve the human race by selective breeding — was a popular idea in the first half of the 20th century and was notably used by the Nazis.
But Varshney said the organisation was merely engaged in “motivational activity”.
“A farmer will have a good yield only when he prepares the soil properly. Similarly, the purification of the sperm and egg is very important,” he told AFP by phone.
“The purification can be done through the right diet, massage and detox methods.”
At the university, it was clear that the Hindu females had an interest in white guys. I suppose that in India, unburdened by political correctness, that it was acceptable to prefer light skin over dark skin.
When Duke University porn star Belle Knox hit the news in a big way a couple of years ago, I ran a number of pictures of her, including the one below. She’s half Hindu. Her father is white. Because of race mixing with white men, I expect that future generations of American Hindus will be significantly lighter than the current generation.
DIONNE GOMEZ BEFORE.
You may want to avert your eyes as you scroll through or past this post. What has been seen cannot be unseen.
You have been warned!
A slimmer is raising money to have her excess skin removed after extreme weight loss left her with a ‘body of a 90-year-old’.
Dionne Gomez, 28, from Chicago was left with loose skin that causes rashes on her body after dropping 130lbs (9st 4lbs) after a vertical sleeve gastrectomy.
‘They did warn that excess skin was a possible but I thought that at my age my skin would just bounce back,’ she said.
‘I have it all around my body, from my neck down – it looks like a 90 year old’s body.
‘There’s a lot of sagging skin on my breast you can pull. I am still learning this new body.’
Pull on her breast, she says? Thanks, but no thanks. I think most fellas would rather not pull on anything that’s a part of this lady’s body, which SHE described as that of a 90 year old.
Dionne used to embrace her curves until last year she realised her 300lbs (21st 6lbs) frame was affecting her health.
When she was diagnosed with pre-diabetes and sleep apnoea in 2015, Dionne decided to get a vertical sleeve gastrectomy after other weight loss attempts failed.
Mexican men like those “curves” and every one of those 300 pounds. Maybe this lady had started looking for a white boyfriend? It’s just a speculation.
The lady looks quite fetching in a dress. I do have to note that many nonwhite women seem to want to be blondes, however. Her hair color does match her bronze skin tone though.
Now, brace yourself for a couple of “after” pictures showing that loose skin that milady is complaining about.
There are several other pictures of Gomez at the linked story. She looks quite shapely and attractive in clothing. However, her saggy skin pictures reveal what clothing conceals.
So, at the risk of sounding like a vulgarian, I’ll simply say that you don’t really know a lady until you’ve seen her without makeup and without clothing.
Maybe a first date to a nude beach would help both parties decide whether the relationship was going anywhere.
One more thing. She’s got the money for fancy clothes, manicures, makeup, hair styling, and tattoos. But the story goes on to tell us that she wants someone to pay for her skin surgeries.
Maybe she could cut back on the luxuries and save her money to pay for it herself. It’s certainly not our obligation as taxpayers to pretty her up.
This is a short, silent video.
I know nothing about the healthy young white woman you see, so if anyone knows anything about her, please share it.
She seems fit and healthy, the way that more of our people ought to strive be.
