Kansas City pays Black firefighter $250K to settle suit after denying him promotions

Kansas City will pay $250,000 to settle a lawsuit filed by a high-ranking Black firefighter repeatedly passed over for promotions, the City Council decided Thursday. Stephen Seals has been with the Kansas City Fire Department since 1995 and is now a battalion chief.

Let’s get this straight ok, they only paid him because he was black, this is another publicity stunt by lickass to make him look like he’s a hero for blacks, there was no discrimination, the dude was too stupid to pass the tests plain and simple.

And as usual, the taxpayers pay the price for this publicity stunt. Making everything about racism is lickasses main trick to a political future somewhere else, and he’ll spend as much money as it takes.

Merit based promotions are passe.

The city always settles
the question is was he even qualified to lead,
just because he had years in doesn't always mean
he had knowledge or skill to be in a leadership role.

I rarely shop Target, but recently bought a certain microwave that I could not find elsewhere. No problem with the order, but started receiving email ads almost daily. Not unexpected.

However, when I received a banner type ad asking that I support "black owned" business, I returned the appliance, which I had not unpacked. My family operates a business which is struggling due to reduced pandemic traffic.

I also noted it was almost impossible to find white actors in their ads. An alien would assume the majority of the population was black.

Really fed up with this knee bending to BLM and black victim-hood.

$250k was a cheaper buy off than raising salary + benefits over time.

Black people really love those freebies don't they?

top photo guy, any time you want to dish on the ridiculous top salaries and overtime abuse at our predatory fire department, please, by all means good sir, dish away!

$150,000+ salary seems somewhat excessive, to me, do we really have to pay that much salary to attract good men and women to the fire department?

There is No such thing as diversity. Its just a cloak to try to cover the systemic racism that Goverment has supported to disparage White people. The Black lottery is just another example of it.
