NAACP says Eric Holder's DOJ goes too far with race policy
In Dayton Ohio, you can get the same as a D or F on the police exam and still become a cop. The Department of Justice Civil Rights Division run by Tom Perez (the same unit that dismissed the New Black Panther voter intimidation case) is requiring Dayton to lower police exam scores to 58 and 63 percent so enough black applicants can join the force. The Obama administration mandate is too much for even the NAACP: "'The NAACP does not support individuals failing a test and then having the opportunity to be gainfully employed,' agreed Dayton NAACP President Derrick Foward."
UPDATE: The person running the section in charge of this policy is none other than Loretta King, the person deeply involved in the New Black Panther dismissal and who gave a racially charged introduction to Eric Holder as covered previously by Pajamas. h/t to the DOJ insider.
