There used to be a black "community activist" in Louisville who would complain periodically that the state police didn't hire blacks. The commissioner, when I was working for him, told him to send him any qualified black applicants and he'd hire them. I honestly don't think he has protested since and that was 6-7 years ago.
That drug test is a deal breaker for some. Clean record? That ruins it for some others. It's so unfair [/sarcasm]
