Show-Me The Road To Trooper Diversity

Quick insight into proposed solutions for ongoing complaints of racial discrimination in the aftermath of bad publicity by way of a historic NAACP Travel Advisory:

Largely white and male Missouri Highway Patrol seeks to diversify

The Missouri State Highway Patrol remains a predominantly white and male law enforcement agency. And efforts to change that reality haven't made much headway over the last few years. According to the most recent numbers, 94 percent of Missouri Highway Patrol troopers that are on the road are white.

Missouri is 84% white. The State Highway Patrol is 94% white. The University of Missouri 2016-2017 basketball team was 25% white. Which organization had the race diversity problem?

^^^ False equivalency argument easily debunked: The basketball team doesn't enforce the law and is far more competitive.

Would the black troopers get curb feelers and 22" rims on their cars?

Maybe you could get more worthless pieces of shit like Cpt Ron Johnson.

You're right 9:42. The basketball team just breaks the law, they don't enforce it.

You need to hire white.....
If you want to get the job done.
Plus too many blacks already have criminal records to be hired.

No black cops, blacks are against this country and are now referred to as terrorists, they are in the same category as ISIS.

The problem is not racism. Missouri has hired quite a few black troopers over the years, but there is a very high percentage of blacks who can not get through the background investigation, testing and evaluations.
