Racism in New Haven

The Powerline blog has an interesting article on racism:
The Supreme Court has decided to review the Second Circuit's decision in Ricci v. DeStefano. In that case, New Haven firefighters -- one Hispanic and more than a dozen whites -- sued the city after they were denied promotion because the city disregarded the results of its own test for determining who would be promoted. The city threw out the test results because not enough black firefighters scored high enough to earn a promotion. It did so even though the test was designed by experts to eliminate the possibility of racial bias.
