    Quite honestly, I expect anything coming from this lawsuit. Regardless, OC list 1:4 ratio with candidates 35 and younger. PH 39 and older ratio 1:6 and that's me being nice.

    Scratching my head on this one... Not saying that ur lying. Im just saying that as a black man myself, it would be quite amazing if i found another black person that actually knows,understands and uses those words. We usually just say "white people". Thats why i kind of doubt this story. One black guy says "ginny/mick" and the other black guy wasnt confused??? idk man.. But trust if its true you will never see/hear that ever again lol
    Uh, are you from around here? Not many people in the city of New York don't know what a guinea or mick is. And I've seen with my own eyes a few guys come up to a black guy I work with and tell him it's good to see "a brother" on the job instead of a bunch of ginzos. They received a good *** chewing from him, advised to study, take and DO WELL on the test if they want the job, and an invitation to step outside for being je*koffs in the meantime.

I am doing what I have to do to get the job not sit on the Internet complaining about how it not fair ect... Some of you guys sound like little high school girls complaining. LIFE IS NOT FAIR BUILD A BRIDGE AND GET OVER IT... EVERYONE of you guys and girls know if some one gave you the chance to go to the head of the line you will not pass it up... In by the way I scored a 104 so I don't have a care in the world. Have a great night wish all you guys and girls the best!!!
    You claim to be so smart but you can't even find the forum about the PH thats taking your jobs... Your IQ is in the top 2%, 3 year old children know how to use google!!!!
    Bro, your grammar, spelling and syntax are ATROCIOUS. I'm no English teacher, but you are barely frigging understandable! You got question marks on the end of statements, entire words missing from sentences and punctuation where it shouldn't be. What we're able to pull out of this tangled mess is that you're a PH who feels perfectly justified in your course of action and you expect us to be happy about it. Let me set you straight.

    YOU FAILED. You took a test and YOU DID NOT MEET THE STANDARD. Every fire test ever given you have needed a 97 MINIMUM to even have a hope of getting on. End of story. You didn't score high enough, so you didn't get hired. Period. And it isn't the FDNY that administers, scores and sets up tests and lists; it's the DCAS. The white people who got the same scores as you DIDN'T GET HIRED EITHER. Why is this so hard for you to grasp? You will now be given preferential treatment you didn't even earn in the first damn place over people who did. Purely based on color. It's nonsense, and you know it.

    Now, you found yourselves an activist judge with an agenda who thinks a dept should be composed along racial lines. So the PH people, based entirely on color, are given a watered down test designed specifically for them to pass. And that's all they have to do; pass. And they're being put on this job ahead of people who studied hard and scored well.

    You got some hell of a nerve telling anybody that "life isn't fair" and "to get over it". You fail a test given at the 10th grade level and you think you've been treated unfairly because people who did well on it got hired over you? YOU NEED TO GET OVER IT. You want this job? F**king study your a**off and earn it. And if you're going to come on here and cite other forums and websites as sources, post the frigging links to them, same as everyone else.

    And if YOU'RE so damn smart, please explain how in the hell you weren't able to score well on a test that children pass with ease in the first place.

    Uh, be careful thinking that way. Politics is still politics, and I have a tough time believing anyone at city hall is willing to make too many waves and risk being called racists. We all know this whole thing is BS; hell, even the Vulcans know it. But have no doubt that orders will come down from somewhere on high to allow the people they want to get through. It's happened before and it's starting to become a regular thing these days. You'll see at graduation the first words out of the mayor's mouth will be "most diverse class ever". Whatever has to happen to allow him to say that WILL happen.

    Whymeetoo,,, are you actually serious with the life isnt fair comment????

    You are a joke and all the other PH's are a joke and you KNOW IT.

    I was at the first informational cpat session and it was an utter travesty to see 70% of the people their being PH's who look old, wayyy out of shape. God Have Mercy on the lives of NYC Residents if one of these people have to come rescue them....

    Crazy Pete's first message of the night WAS LOUD and CLEAR....This job is not for everyone.,..You need to BE IN SHAPE,,, as you go through 18 weeks of HELL in the academy....and that their are NO Excuses.

    I actually got so sick to my stomach thinking about when 6 years ago i was sitting in the same chair with Men and WOMEN who actually wanted TO BE NYC FF's not people who got handed the job.

    Its really sick and i hope what goes around comes around and you get yours one day....

    and the only people who should be getting awarded anything are the people like myslef from 6019 who got smoked bc of idiots like the judge and yourself,,,But Im not looking for a hand out....Im just looking to take back what was wrongfully stolen from me.

    Ofcourse it has happened before, white kid getting dropped from proby school and brought back because daddy was an officer and went crying to the union reps. Perfect example of getting people they want to get through.

    Trust me I think all about this lawsuit and PH is BS, But apparently the system is not perfect on both ends. THAT shouldn't happen at all, that's what I call being FAIR.

    When? Who? On whose orders? What class was this? And that is a perfect example of city hall making sure guys they want get through. Did you expect I would say that kind of thing is OK if white people do it?

    I can certainly tell you about guys showing up late day after day, waltzing onto the Rock in their street clothes who graduated. A guy who showed up drunk a few times who also graduated. A female who couldn't get past an obstacles on the FST course and that same obstacle magically disappeared the very next day, and another who needed FOUR tries to pass the CPAT they give at THE END of proby school.

    It happened in one of the last classes that went in and i know this because a friend of mine that was in it told me about it. I'm not expecting you to say anything, I just want to to point out that things like this shouldn't be happening no matter what skin color, ethnicity, hooks nor religion you are. There's thousands of people down the list who would make sure that they would not lack in anything at the academy for this job so there should be no room for people who give half the work.

    Oh, well, if your friend told you about it it must be so. I can tell you that white kids in the last class were fired for not making the cut and black kids/females were not. It's not right either which way, be it black or white, but today's political climate dictates that minority groups WILL be pushed through so city hall can crow about it.

    Either way, this isn't the place to discuss this. Understand that besides proby school, chauffeur school, rescue school and numerous other training goes on at the Rock. You guys will be watched and scrutinized CONSTANTLY. When things like what I was talking about happen, we WILL find out about it in the field. Be careful about citing your friends as sources. We KNOW what's going on because we see it with our own eyes.

Fancy lifting like crossfit may be good for youtube videos, and maybe for the guy who's looking for people to play tic tac toe on his abs (one of the weirder requests I've seen on here), but it's a waste of time for what we do. But, to each his own. Put the book down for a bit and get some rest. Good luck to you. Remember, it ends, and it's all worth it, I promise you.
    Digging this up to respond to it, albeit a few days late. I can't defend Crossfit, only my experience with it. I didn't really care to learn a lot of the flashy, overly technical stuff because of the exact reasons that you stated. There were however good workouts to be had, and plenty of WODs that got my heart pumping in a similar way to what FST does to you, though obviously nowhere near it. In retrospect that's what I liked about it.

    Ah, I'm an older guy and I just don't get the point of workouts like that. But if it works for you, enjoy. Crossfit turned me off because the people who go to it are like a bunch of cult members. They take personal offense if you take a look around in there but don't sign up.

    As far as FST, HIIT is key. I'm sure you know what that is, but for those who don't you basically jog at a decent pace for 3 minutes then go all out for 2. Do that over and over for about a half hour followed by the low weight high rep workout at proby school and you'll see FST become easier and easier. But it'll never be a cakewalk.

    I swear this world is full of retards and more
    Upsetting that a lot of those retards are
    For FF candidates. So I'm on Instagram looking at the #fdny hashtags you got someone that posted the picture of the investigation packet... You look at the rest of his pictures and majority are pictures of marijuana or marijuana related ... Smh ....

    If all they're doing with pot is smoking it then I can't help but not care. Hopefully if that person really wants the job they'll figure out which is more important and cut that out of their life.

    What is so hard to understand. What if they told your mother or father that they had to fire them because they weren't the right color and hire some one who fit their idea of what looks PC. Then everyone has to work with someone who is less qualified and is moraly arrogant. Whats the point of doing anything to better yourself or work hard if they are hiring based on skin color.

    They should be called Charity hires, who's priority is it to hire these people. Violating an individuals civil rights and fair chance at a job for group politics.[/QUOTE]

    I've been following this forum for the most part and I can imagine and understand all of you guys for being upset about this whole ph issue. With that said your example above maybe is not the right one to go by cause let's face it black ppl have been through the discrimination where they get passed on for someone other than black so to say "What if they told your mother or father that they had to fire them because they weren't the right color..." has been done so many time it's almost virtually impossible to count. Don't get me wrong two wrong the make a right so it doesn't mean it's right for it to happen to any race especially in this day and age. All we can do is fight it to make it better until there's no more fight in us but at the end of the day know there I a possibility that it might not go if way. When it comes down to it your not gonna have a choice but to work with a ph and your Conn rely on him/her in the job so all this back and forth on Thu forum I not gonna do **** and let the legal system deal with it.

    It's actually a better forum when you give advice on what and how to get prepared for the academy
