    Justices to Hear White, Hispanic Firefighters' Claim That City Favored Blacks

    Will someone tell me how a test can be unfair to an individual because of the color of his/her skin? I just dont get it. Lets see. No whites made the basketball team. Lets lower the hoop a foot and make the blacks play with the sneaker laces tied together.

    The city of New Haven is putting its citizens in danger by not obtaining the smartest captain they can find. Fire doesnt discriminate.

    I take issue with the term "Reverse Discrimination". Discrimination is discrimination. To use the term "Reverse Discrimination", implies that "regular" discrimination only happens to black people.
