Report: 97% of DC Metro operators black, whites passed over for management jobs

The homogeneity, interviews with dozens of current and former Metro workers indicated, is a proxy to a clubby culture of favoritism in which merit has little to do with promotions, and accountability, such as noting safety violations, is a career death knell. In typical examples, court and Metro records show, a black man who spent eight years in prison for dealing PCP was promoted to a high-level management position soon after his release, and whites in the same positions as blacks with far less seniority are inexplicably paid less.

I agree

This needs to be closed and archived.

Why the f&^* is this not in off topics??!!!

This has no business being on the DP.

Aren't Blacks the majority in D.C.?

In San Antonio most of the city employees are Hispanic. The majority of the population in San Antonio is Hispanic.

Not a 97% majority

. WTF?

This is divisive development,

This is divisive development, for sure, but imo that's the exact objective, including any and all reactions to the headline.

Maybe we're focusing on the wrong issue? Once we legalize freedom and inculcate individual rights for all, we won't have these problems anymore.


The metro is usually the first thing to be cut, which it most likely will when the the money is gone.


So what? Don't work for

So what? Don't work for someone else and you won't have that problem.

Well maybe the White people should just work harder

Sounds like they are pretty lazy if they can't get promoted! LOL


I thought lazy was the requirement for these jobs.

This is back door

reparations. This is why a majority of blacks will not vote against the status quo.

Oh, and by the way

Just go to any big city and most small ones and you will see that blacks have the majority of government jobs as well as postal jobs. You can figure out the reason why yourself.

No, we can't, actually...

Why don't you explain it to us?

That's messed up. If this

That's messed up. If this were a private institution, that's one thing, but this is DC Metro for goodness sakes. Government institutions, or institutions subsidized by the government, should be fair and equal with their hiring and firing standards. The congressional caucasian caucus is going to have a fit ;-)

Fomenting racial tension

Seems to be the MO of the globalists. I've never, in my 53 years, seen worse journalism as what I've beheld over the Trayvon Martin incident. Talk about fomenting a race war!! CNN should have their license revoked.



You can't get clean in a dirty bathtub.


Im just going to remain mum on this. Having dealt with govt workers this is absolutely no surprise to me.
