A U.S. district judge ordered New York City to pay $128 million to firefighters who claimed that the city used an entrance exam that deliberately sought to keep African-Americans and Latinos off the force

The judge also ordered the FDNY to hire 293 black and Latino applicants. Apparently it is racist to expect blacks and Hispanics to have cognitive and reading skills.

Now, how can we make sure that those fire fighters work in the rich areas of NY?
