In order to have more negros manning the fire hoses, the city of Elgin, Illinois is planning to eliminate the current education requirement, which is 60 hours of college credits.
Just what America needs–firemen too stupid to get through two years of college.
The drive to put more blacks and women in the station house makes little sense except in terms of politics. Every locality should be aiming to have the best firefighters and the best equipment, not focusing on how many of this group or that is on the job.
Elgin may revise its requirements for firefighters to attract a more diverse group of applicants.
Feel safer with Wakandans manning those fire hoses, eh Elgin?
