What’s one of the best ways to remember 9/11 on the 20th anniversary of the terror attacks on New York City and Washington D.C.? By recalling the story, where one of three white firefighters from the famous photo from 9/11/2001 of them raising the American flag amid the chaos of the day, was excluded from a color-guard procession so it would be all-black. [FDNY official defends excluding famed 9/11 firefighter from procession for being white, NY Post, July 25, 2021]:

A top FDNY official says it’s “most definitely” acceptable to exclude a white firefighter from a ceremonial unit based solely on his skin color, The Post has learned.

Cecilia Loving, the department’s chief diversity and inclusion officer, is defending a decision to kick Lt. Daniel McWilliams — one of three firefighters in the iconic 9/11 Ground Zero flag-raising photo — off a color-guard procession so it would be all-black.

Loving testified at a state Divsion of Human Rights trial on McWilliam’s complaint that he was the victim of racial bias.

When McWilliams showed up at a 2017 memorial mass to honor deceased members of the Vulcan Society, a fraternal group of black FDNY firefighters, he was barred from holding a flag in the color guard.

Regina Wilson, then Vulcan Society president, asked McWilliams to “help in a different capacity” because he is not black.

Loving, who is black, testified there is nothing wrong with that.

“So, a request for an all-black color guard is not discriminatory?” McWilliam’s lawyer, Keith Sullivan, asked in the trial.

“No, it isn’t,” Loving replied.

Asked if it’s acceptable to request an all-black color guard, she said, “Most definitely.”

Loving said it’s okay to replace a white member with an African-American to “uplift our identities and our separate ethnicities in order to instill a sense of pride and community and support for one another.”

In a written brief, Sullivan called the rejection of McWilliams “deplorable,” and evidence of a stark double standard in the FDNY.

“If you’re black and you discriminate against a white person in the workplace, you get a slap on the wrist at best,” he wrote. A white person who discriminates gets “heavy-handed discipline and punishment.”

Wilson received “one hour of counseling” as discipline for her treatment of McWilliams.

“The FDNY has created a policy and procedure for bending over backwards, coming up with excuses and accommodating members of the Vulcan Society … who commit racist acts, and it has to stop,” Sullivan wrote.

McWilliams declined to comment, but he was upset and “embarrassed” by the incident, Sullivan said.

After filing his complaint, McWilliams was the target of retaliation and intimidation by Wilson’s supporters, Sullivan argues. One put his hands on McWilliams, and said, ”I’ve heard about you, they told me you’d act this way, and now you know me.”

The FDNY declined to comment because a final decision is pending.

Can you smell the unity?

ORDER IT NOW

Twenty years after the terror attacks, we live in a nation dominated by the concept of Black-Run America (BRA), where a white man who was one of the first responders to the horror unfolding in New York City, can be openly discriminated against because of his whiteness…

    This she-boon is another professional Affirmative Action grifter (aren’t they all?). Since this recent debacle at the FDNY she’s moved on to become the “Senior Vice President of Diversity, Inclusion & Equity” (a.k.a. – “DIE whitey”) at PBS.

    One of her “books” is titled, God is a Brown Girl Too. I find that impossible since brown girls are always tired, complaining all the time and constantly talking about their hair weaves.

  3. The DEMs deserve a taste of their own medicine.

    That black faced governor needs to go.

    Earl Warren (a progressive hero) was this country’s biggest proponent for rounding up Japanese-AMERICANS and sending them to [high desert] prison camps. His name needs to be stricken from UCSD (and many other public honors).

    The Delano family made its fortune in the Opium Wars. FDR’s visage needs to removed from the [now silver-less] dime; his communist policies scrapped, also.

    The Kennedy’s ..

    You get the idea.

    Oh, and I am so sick and tired of seeing public schools named after left-wing icons; I oppose names for right-wingers, too. Schools should have names more befitting their functions: San Quentin Middle School, Sing-Sing High, NAMBLA Elementary, etc.

    The real question is what will it take for Whites to wake up to the reality of their situation? Active, anti-White discrimination is basically now the de facto law of the land.

I was raised by my parents to respect the GIPD and most definitely our mostly volunteer GIFD, (there are now several full time Rescue & FD members), I guess I still can over there since it’s still an oasis of Whiteness in this Wayne County multicultural hellhole. But overall that time has passed.

    Since Firemen nationwide aren’t raising hell over this, they lose some more respect.

    And F**K these N-Words! Give them not even the time of day. Don’t patronize anything black owned or anywhere that employs them if it can be helped.

    Ebony and Ivory living in perfect harmony. We can imagine the national uproar if a black firefighter played a heroic role in 9/11 then was excluded from a ceremonial unit based on his race. The entire leadership of the FDNY would be fired or forced to resign.

    People better carefully read this article because it proves that blacks aren’t the least bit sentimental about whites like whites are about blacks. Race trumps everything in their worldview and so it should in ours.

    The exclusionary nig probably will now retire on diasbility now due to YT PTSD.

    Yesterday, I saw a portion of a 9/11 special.Evidently there were 12-13 nigros in the Fire Dept who were killed in 9/11 (It may have been 12-13 of all the first responders). Anyway, there’s evidently at least one memorial just for them, and a mural with just their faces.

  11. Diversity means trampling on the rights of white people.

    Think that’s bad? Soon it’ll just be trampling on white people.

    None of our ‘cultural elite’ or government authorities have the slightest issue with any of this. Extermination is the ultimate goal, and progress is continuing apace.

    I saw that too. The best part of the story is the surviving “teen” is being charged and held responsible for the death of the other “teen”.

    It’s too bad our society isn’t demanding the “parents” be tracked down, and charged as well. For not raising their kids right and allowing them to run wild and commit crimes.

  20. Not sure if anyone else is seeing this, but in my city the fire fighters are starting to be almost exclusively black. I think I remember a hiring quota that gave preferential treatment to blacks (imagine that) but can’t remember.

    It’s kind of ironic, since there’s been a number of black firefighters over the years arrested for cocaine dealing. It’s almost to the point of a small black drug mafia or something. I remember when I was young hearing a White firefighter my family knew talk very poorly of the black firefighters and saying how they were all corrupt, I wonder how deep it runs?

    We need a strong anti negro movement in our political system. Whites are the majority in the country, we need to start cracking down on these monkey loving white nuts.

He should state that a love of negroes is not a requirement for his profession, and that he is entitled, to his opinion. The first amendment should guarantee his right to speak what’s on his mind, and hurt negro feelings be damned.

    The Virginia Beach shooting was total TNB.

  36. A friend of my father’s was a fire chief in NYC. He was getting pressured to AA hire a 200lb 5’2″ female orc, instead of someone more qualified. He resigned from his position instead of hiring her, because he didn’t want to place his life in her hands while in a burning building. This was around 1983-84, so this shit has been going on a lot longer than most people think.

    Loving said it’s okay to replace a white member with an African-American to “uplift our identities and our separate ethnicities in order to instill a sense of pride and community and support for one another.”

    If they really wanted to uplift identities (wtf?) and instill a sense of pride and community and support each other why don’t they support the black family?

    If they can’t get the family right how are they going to get things right regarding race?

    There’s a reason no one asks them that question. Because if they did the entire anti-white/pro-black BS narrative would collapse on its own footprint like the Twin Towers faster than you can say BLM.

    But what does it say about their future that even asking that question would start a riot?

    That’s a trick question, of course. Blacks do not have a future in the USA. If you want an idea of their future, think Los Angeles.

    California is to the country what LA is to blacks.

    It couldn’t be more obvious that the hostile elite are laying it on so thick with all of this pro-black/anti-white stuff to, in part, divert black attention from the fact that they’re being replaced – on purpose.

    A memorial mass? How many black firemen are Catholic? Couldn’t they have a ceremony that was a bit more apropos, like maybe a memorial drive-by?

    Also, why is a black fraternal society named after Vulcan, a European god from European mythology? Who was a smith, who worked WITH fire, instead of putting it out?

    Oh, wait, Vulcan was married to Aphrodite, the goddess of White beauty. It’s all starting to make sense now…..

    They actually swapped out two, the one in the middle was replaced with a black guy, and one of the other two was changed to a mestizo.

    “wiki: In an effort to be inclusive of all those who had been affected by the tragedy, the statue was to include black, white, and Hispanic firefighters. The change in ethnicity from the actual firefighters, all of whom are white, proved controversial enough that the statue was never built.”

    “On November 5, 2007, a 40-foot-tall (12 m) bronze monument based on the photograph called To Lift A Nation and depicting three New York firefighters raising the flag over the ruins of the World Trade Center was dedicated at the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Park in Emmitsburg, Maryland.”

    You said very concisely and eloquently what I’ve been saying for some time. Any time there is criticism of niggros, some Hank Hill conservacuck will dredge up a nigro “hero”-“What about Lorenzo Jones? He was awarded a Medal of Honor for service as a Buffalo Soldier in the 1880s” (i.e. massacring Native Americans, but why throw that uncomfortable fact in?)

    Actually I just made up ol’ Lorenzo, but they will sob about any random nigro vet, including the negros killed or maimed in Iraq. That is supposed to stop all racial criticism, and it often works.

    But as far as niggros go, a wounded White person, war hero or not, is nothing more than an easy target to mug, beat, or murder. They don’t give a schitt. YT is YT,

    At age 81, Parks was robbed and assaulted in her home in central Detroit on August 30, 1994. The assailant, Joseph Skipper, broke down the door but claimed he had chased away an intruder. He requested a reward and when Parks paid him, he demanded more. Parks refused and he attacked her. Hurt and badly shaken, Parks called a friend, who called the police. A neighborhood manhunt led to Skipper’s capture and reported beating. Parks was treated at Detroit Receiving Hospital for facial injuries and swelling on the right side of her face. Parks said about the attack on her by the African-American man, “Many gains have been made … But as you can see, at this time we still have a long way to go.” Skipper was sentenced to 8 to 15 years and was transferred to prison in another state for his own safety.[74][75][76][77]

    Speaking of Buffalo Soldiers, while statues of white people (not just Confederates) have been vandalized and then pulled down by governmental authorities all across the country, the US Army Military Academy (better known as West Point) has put up a Buffalo Soldier memorial.

    From statues to Tubman’s ugly mug on currency to names of streets, parks, military bases, etc., to actors in films, TV shows, commercials and ads in print publications, White America is being erased and replaced with Africans. In a manner of speaking, our future looks black.

    No self-respecting white man or woman should sign up for a military that has gone full-on Afro and preaches CRT.

  49. Piglet says:
    @Non PC Infidel

    People forget that the US military of WW II was completely segregated, so there was no way an orc could have been among the Iwo Jima Marines.

    In old Army records it’s easy to determine which units were orc. The designation would be something like “503d Field Artillery Battalion (Colored).” The last word was often abbreviated as “(Cld).”

    Come to think of it, doesn’t this attempt to insert darkness into the statue constitute “cultural appropriation”? Or does it not count when taking anything away from YT?
