In this week’s broadcast I bring up a case that illustrates the corrupting effect of Diversity ideology on job performance standards everywhere. (Well, nearly everywhere: I think airline pilots, brain surgeons, and special-forces military are still holding off the commissars. I sure hope so.)

Listeners probably know that the New York City Fire Department is under orders from a liberal judge to get more women and minorities fighting fires. Since non-Asian minorities don’t do well on the written tests and women don't do well on the physical requirements, this presents Fire Department brass with a bit of a conundrum.

Recently we saw how they’ve been handling it: By just graduating the victim groups from the Academy whether they pass the tests or not.

Poster gal here is 31-year-old Wendy Tapia. One of the physical requirements for firefighters is to run 1.5 miles in under 12 minutes. Ms. Tapia just couldn’t do it. She tried five times, but couldn’t come in under 12 minutes. So … the Fire Department's training academy just graduated her anyway!

(VDARE.com note: She failed a sixth time and resigned. Hmmm.)

The full Radio Derb playbill:

  • Sleepwalking into war. (Who’s happy, who’s unhappy about the Iran deal.)
  • The pussy civilization. (Western Civ. goes to the cats.)
  • Kids say the darnedest things . . . ( . . . to over-zealous prosecutors.)
  • Outbreaks of honesty in Britain. (The truth keeps breaking through.)
  • Grammar an spelin be raciss! (Microaggression of the week.)
  • The fractal nature of offense-taking. (Offense equal at all scales.)
  • Lesbian waitress exposed. (One more diversity-crime hoax.)
  • The problem with Pacifism. (Nature imitates art among the Amish.)
  • How to square the Diversity circle. (The firefighter case.)
  • Is the Bible fiction, or what? (It’s religion, for crying out loud.)
  • The ultimate fixer-upper. (Prob. some structural problems.)
  • Golliwog chic. (From Debussy.)
