Montgomery County, Maryland Police Forced by DOJ to Racially Profile! (06/24/00)
          After 3 years (1996 - 1999) the U.S. DOJ failed to find any evidence of racial discrimination by the Montgomery County, Maryland police.  Frustrated by this, the DOJ threatened Montgomery County with years of legal harassment unless the county agreed to racially profile all traffic stops.  On Jan. 14, 2000 the county signed the DOJ's extortionist consent decree.   Read about the "facts" and DOJ's campaign to create evidence of racial discrimination where none exists.  (Adversity.Net, 06/24/00)

San Jose Firefighters Form "White" Employee Association (07/02/99)
          Tired of being the only significant racial group without their own representation, the San Jose Firefighters have formed an employee organization aimed at the special needs of European American firefighters. 

          "Fire Capt. James Roszell, the new organization's president, said its members want to help improve human relations in the city and in the fire department, which has been roiled by lawsuits involving racial politics and affirmative action.  The association would model itself after groups such as the Santa Clara County Black Firefighters Association, Women in the Fire Service and Bomberos of Northern California, which represents Latino firefighters."

Fire Dept. Lieutenant Files Reverse Discrimination 
          Court TV's on-line summary of "reverse bias" case against a fire department lieutenant.  Interesting reading if you are considering filing a reverse discrimination complaint of your own!

Candada (Ottawa):  Female firefighters to be hired ahead of men
          Poor Ottawa!  Following down the reverse discrimination road.  The Council approved a measure preferring the hiring of women and 'self-identified minorities'.  Out of 300 qualified candidates, the only four women on the list are to be automatically hired.  "Forget 296 people who have qualified, we are going to focus on four," complained Councillor Allan Higdon.  (Ottawa Citizen 12/17/98)

*  We use the term reverse discrimination reluctantly and only because it is so widely understood.  In our opinion there really is only one kind of discrimination.
