Why was Menino so vocal about Chik Fil A's bigotry but says nothing about it in his own employees in the BPD?

Its time he started acting like a leader and cleaned up the Boston Police department.

Whoever told Mayor for life Tommy Menino to take on the chicken joint was probably the same expert who told Mike Dukakis to take a ride in a tank. The mayor has opened up a can of worms and he better take a long vacation or this will get ugly.

Namleo are a bunch if racists themselves . Construction companies who bid public work are forced to hire local idiots just because they are minorities ... The skilled trades they lack don't matter. So the companies are forced to leave qualified tradesman at home and hire these unskilled minorities and pay them a skilled tradesmans rate ... That's bull but nobody calls the city out on that . And the fact is there are no qualified minority owned companies to complete any large projects ... And those are facts namleo and every other racist can't admit . Last look at the bpd .. Fact is there are not any qualified minorities to hold the positions held by davis .. Linsky .. Evans .. Etc .. Maybe namleo should encourage some qualified minorities to join the ranks ... Because there are not any there now.

But that isn't affirmative action, no. That's "being qualified" with all the answers to the test questions in your pocket.

just to make sure there was the usual token idiot who doesn't know what racism actually is and thinks that racial minorities supporting one another and informing hiring practices is racist.

It's a great tragedy that many minorities are given few options in life and end up joining violent street gangs such as the BPD.

Are the BPD white racists, minority racists, or the living reincarnation of the Jets and the Sharks?
