    I think a lot of guys/gals on here have been royally screwed over because of the BS lawsuit from the vulcans. Some guys were VERY close to the academy back in '08 and were screwed over. They took this test(2000), and received a score not in hiring range. This forum has been a way for a lot of them to vent. I have no idea what/if any hardships you'll face as a black man in the firehouse, but I think if you work hard, you'll be ok. It's if you go in thinking you are owed something, then you might have issues with the other guys, which goes for anybody race/gender/religion, etc...

    You are doing the right thing steering clear if the vulcans and their racist ideals. I'm not planning on joining Emerald society or any club where your race place a part in being a member. Can't see the point of having groups that divide people that are supposed to be brothers for life. I think people will see if you are a hard worker and good person and assume the best. Maybe I'm naive but everyone I've talked to otj these days is pretty damn happy to work with any person that does the right thing.

    Anti minority rant? Don't state my intentions when it's not even close to being that. I simply relayed what was told to me just like everyone else does on this forum. For your information, i am a minority.

    Here's the thing whoever has my back regardless of race better be damn good at their job. And I hope they expect the same from me. There are other jobs out there. Police, transit, sanitation etc. i hardly believe minority or otherwise the new probies that make it through probation will be bad Ffs. I think that's the only gripe guys otj have about new hires. Will they maintain the integrity of this job. That's so important. I'm sure we have all worked jobs where people don't care - it's seems like it's the furthest thing from not caring otj with fdny. We just need to make sure it always stays that way.

    The letters for the run have reached at least 1100. I can confirm this as I saw an email to a candidate below that range.

    Just like in the Corps bro, somebody might say something stupid like, "he only got on bc of PH/AA." But if he's a good fireman and has the respect of his house, they'll thump some morons in his defense.

    You prob will get people assuming you got on as a PH and that is the vulcans fault. Lots of stupid people out there man. If someone is a victim of racism they have plenty of resources provided by the city to take appropriate actions against it. Its sad the vulcans are trying to recruit guys by telling them they should join their club to preemptively combat the racism that they should expect to encounter. That is just putting negative ideas in guys heads before they have the opportunity to form their own opinion. Who knows maybe the fd is super duper racist, I really cant say for sure yet. Hope to see firsthand come July 14.

    Good luck on the run everyone.

    listen, you want to know the f u c k i n g truth, I'm tired of this racist bull s h i t, just like any other job every now and then you'll here something a little off setting, but guess what, you'll say something a little off setting as well. its not a big f u c k i n g deal. get over it. this is not a perfect world. guys voice their opinions on some matters and when you get some time on the job you will too. when it comes down to it when your in hallway with fire in froth of you and the heat breathing down the back of your neck you know the person next to you isn't leaving the building without, PERIOD. there are times where you get mad at each other or absolutely do not agree with someone, but regardless of the fact you are brothers and you look out for each other no matter what. and this is coming from a "minority"

    What's up guys? I'm list #19xx. I'm still waiting to do psych and medical but I am going on vacation in the middle of July. Do they give you an opportunity to reschedule either of them if by some chance they happen to schedule me them for when I am away? Also how long in advance do you get the appointment letters for them. Good luck to everyone on the run and congrats to the people who just graduated.

    If you're gonna get your med and psych in July, you should've been informed already lol. They will send it out a few weeks in advance so don't worry.

    I seriously doubt anyone will treat you and differently, maybe one or two people who will be set straight. People like the vulcans look for stuff to get offended about and them they act like every one is racist if they don't agree with them. It's all politics with them. I'm sure back in the day people were really racist, but in a working environment that **** goes right out he window after you start to spend time together.
    First you are military so everyone will know you aren't a PH and secondly once they meet you they will like you, there are enough people to dislike because they are scumbags, no one is going to care about he color of your skin.
    I commend you for not joining, the same way you would commend me for not joining some white supremacy group. My friends are all on PD and no one cares about color, you are either cool and people like you or you are not.
    No point in even talking about it. You will see in time. Join merit matters if you want and people will know who you are right away.

    I like what u just said, all im saying is that i hope you are right and that the Vulcans are wrong. That Vulcan guy made it sound like guys will be waiting at the house for me with hoods and nooses lol. But judging by the way ive seen them act firsthand, back during the test prep course where they made all the white guys stand outside as if this was 1949 in reverse, just had me wondering wtf is going on. Reasons like that is why id never join them. Ill always hold that against them. And i cant believe they got away with that.
