Racism towards Whites in the Fire Department

I know exactly why nobody knows about this. The Fire Chief, on the news said they are looking to give the job of fire fighter to blacks and latinos. Nothing said about the best qualified. SO basically they believe you can dumb down a fire. Don`t believe me, here it is.
"We're looking for the diversity and Afro-Americans, Latinos, Hispanics, all the ethnicities that make up the rich culture of Baltimore. We're also looking for young, healthy, athletically fit men and women to fill positions within the Baltimore City Fire Department," said Chief Kevin Cartwright." Perhaps the reason Baltimore City is the way that it is is due to dumbing everything down beginning with the schools and government. This sounds like a good class action law suit for all of the qualified white applicants that are going to be disqualified in place of the less qualified Latino or African American. Reverse Racism at its best.
