When you are wearing the uniform the only color they should be worried
about is blue. Who cares what color the skin is as long as they do a
good job and stay safe.
Everything nowadays is race or diversity related. People want to be
equal- but yet are quick to point out diversity or race. The other
comment says it all, let's not focus on diversity but the Troopers!
Why does race have to be an issue? I don't care what race the Troopers
are. I'd much rather know they were all qualified and ready for the
sometimes rough road ahead of them. I want to know they are more than
able to protect us when needed! Let's not worry about the race but worry
that these men and women can do protect and serve.
The goal of diversity is to select the best man or woman for the job!
Diversity just doesn't pertain to race, but it also applies to gender.
Sound like someone is in need of diversity training.
How about we celebrate hiring the best man/woman for the job instead of
focusing on diversity!
I think that it is good to highlight the diversity within the New Jersey
State Police recruit classes. After being plagued with racial profiling
and becoming the center of national attention, articles like this help
to demonstrate the sincere efforts of the New Jersey State Police to
create a rainbow of troopers that reflect the diverse state that they
have been recruited to serve and protect.
Furthermore, I think it's a disgrace for any one to
diminish the efforts of the New Jersey State Police to tout the fact
that they are moving beyond the past where the organization was once
dominated by white males. In addition, I have read a lot of good
articles that have celebrated the accomplishments of the New Jersey Sate
Police other than on the topic of diversity.
So I canít resist responding to editorials such as
this that proclaim they champion diversity but deep down inside they are
hypocrites. So do me a favor, stop trying to make it seem like we are
being bombarded with articles on diversity, if you don't particularly
care for diversity, say it, otherwise keep your mouth shut.
