The Department of Justice Gets a Failing Grade

The latest bad idea from the Department of Justice: to mandate the dumbing down of a civil service test for prospective police officers in Dayton, Ohio. 

Thankfully, leaders at the NAACP aren't happy about this latest outrage, claiming that it is "insulting to black people."

Walter Williams, a very smart economist and cultural commentator, concurs. Williams also points out that the people who are failing the civil service exams are the same people who probably earned A's and B's on their report cards. 

There is injustice happening, but it isn't because of the civil service tests that help prospective employers select the most qualified candidates.
