Paid For Failure

NYFD: Reparations: $66,000 Each



New New York City Mayor De Blasio races to go belly up and settle lawsuit, agrees to pay out >$100 MILLION to 1,500 “firefighters” over raycis exam. Wait, strike that.  "firefighters"  They never were firefighters. They were simply guys who took the entrance exam, and failed. Because. Racism. Uh huh; under that terrible evil Nazi racist Republican, Mayor Bloomberg (RINO extraordinaire, the Mary Poppins of the Nanny State, arch liberal, Socialist Utopian), the Fire Department written entrance exam was too difficult. Right. For illiterates perhaps. Whatever. Welcome to Bizzarro World, Part CXXVII. Automatic win for all Black people, or else massive cash payments. All from your tax dollars, one way or another.


Abandoning a legal battle hard-fought by his predecessor, Mayor de Blasio on Tuesday agreed to have the city shell out more than $100 million to a group of 1,500 minority firefighter applicants who sued over FDNY entrance exams that were found to be biased.

De Blasio made no secret of his desire to settle the controversial case upon taking office in January and the Vulcan Society and its lawyers took full advantage, scoring $98 million out of a $128 million cap on the city’s financial exposure.

The generous settlement amount doesn’t include at least $3.7 million more the city will be on the hook for in fees to the plaintiffs’ lawyers.

Besides back pay, the settlement includes more than $6 million to cover lost medical payments, fringe benefits and interest. The payment method hasn’t been determined and will have to be approved by a federal judge.

If evenly distributed, the payout would be about $65,000 for each member of the class action.

In a related maneuver that reveals the extent of City Hall’s new orientation, city Corporation Counsel Zachary Carter was granted permission to have controversial Judge Nicholas Garaufis administer the plump payout and determine the lawyer fees.

Garaufis presided over the case, ruling in 2011 that the FDNY — and then-Mayor Michael Bloomberg, specifically — intentionally discriminated against minority applicants.

But an appeals court tossed the portion of his ruling that characterized the discrimination as intentional and assigned a new judge, citing Garaufis’ lack of impartiality. That key legal point directly impacted financial damages and the reputation of the FDNY. A new hearing with a different judge had been scheduled for later this month, but was scuttled with the settlement deal.

So Commie Boy to the rescue!! Because given the appeals court ruling, this case would either simply evaporate in court, or the settlement would shrink down to almost nothing. But hella no, gots to have them reparations!

So while he was there, he also shelled out nearly $4 Million to the Vulcan Society, a group of firemen kind of like the Professional Black Caucus in Congress. Because the firemen already have a union you know. So they need their own secondary organization, just for Black Folk. But don’t you effin’ dare make a Promethius Club for White firemen. That be raycis!

Doggamn. A brudda could do ai-ite, ai-ite indeed, just by dropping a packet of seeds on the ground (Pigford II) and then failing a test. Together, that’s into the 6 figure range. Free moneys! I be voting Democrat for the nex 200 years!

NOTE: If you would like to see what some of the questions on the horrible exam were like, go here. If you don’t get at least 8 of the 10 right, don’t come back. If you do get all 10 correct, plus the extra hard bonus picture question of the lamp shop, for which the correct answer is already circled, I will award free caulk to the first person who can figure out how these questions are legitimately racist.

NOTE 2: Pity party for the smart minority folks who aced the exam, and STILL couldn’t get the job. Say What??. Oh wait. First, the NYFD ran out of money one year, so they didn’t hire anybody. Raycis!! Then the courts declared that the tests they had given were racist, so all the results got thrown out. Which means nobody got hired from that now discredited exam. RAYCIS!!  The real bottom line is that the entrance exam may not actually be actually racist, especially not after more than 40 years of anti-discrimination fine tuning, but the RESULTS are racially skewed.  What the courts call “disparate impact.” Because these days, Equal Opportunity = Equal Outcome. And that’s Social Justice. Anything else ... is raycis.

She-it. Can I dig up a darkie ancestor somewhere so I can claim my One Drop, and go get me a check for $65 LARGE? Dis brudda be jonesin for dat.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
