And we also look the other way when the blackholios have low test scores.
Stop whining you bunch of what's happening cast members!
Bottom line, it's a very difficult job and them coloreds don't like to bust their asses for it. The FDNY physical fitness test knocks out most.
Where's the racial discrimination? Sounds more like just good old fashioned nepotism to me. Maybe these asterisks should try applying over in New Haven...
Would you rather have a guy with a DUI trying to save you or a guy who can't read or is too lazy to lift a 100 lb. hose?
Firemen are supposed to be volunteer
And yet this bunch of white thieves, murderers, and criminals is still managing to put up higher test scores than the black firefighters... what does that tell you?
They study/work out for the job.
nothing I didn't already know
FDNY = Irish welfare.
In big cities, it probably works better that they're pros. Fighting fires in Bumfuck, Arkansas is a lot different than fighting them in New York City.
Having said that, it's probably more corrupt business than big city police, which is an accomplishment in itself.
So true. Ya really don't want Cletus, whose more worried about getting enough sleep for his day job, trying to save you in your 20th floor apartment at 2:00am.
Or the bucket brigades from Gangs of New York brawling in the streets over who gets to loot your house. There really is a lot of science involved in modern firefighting, especially in cities. As corrupt as these guys are, they really are a special breed. It's sort of how I give Philly cops a pass for cracking a few heads once in a while. Sometimes that shit needs to be done to keep the natives in their place. If hiring only white Irish drunks makes FDNY happy, I say have at it, as long as the city doesn't burn down.
Give me the guy with the DUI. As long as he doesn't kill anyone on the way to the fire and/or on his off-day, its all good.
