What If They Can't Read'em Their Rights?

Do the first two lines of this story anger, frustrate, and sadden you as much as they do me?
The Dayton Police Department is lowering its testing standards for recruits.  It's a move required by the U.S. Department of Justice after it says not enough African-Americans passed the exam.
Aside from being a foolish and potentially dangerous policy because it could result in the hiring of less than qualified cops, it's an absolute insult to the good will of overwhelmingly most white people and the intelligence of overwhelmingly most blacks.

And just when I thought we were finally moving beyond this kind of  insanity.  God help us.
