Wyatt Frazer and Della Murphy allege in a federal lawsuit that they were forced off the Police, Fire and Civil Service Board for their advocacy of a white candidate when the chief's job was open in in East St. Louis, Illinois, in 2007.
Attorney Thomas Kennedy III, who represents Frazer and Murphy said Mayor Alvin L. Parks Jr. told Frazer and Murphy that "the city was not ready to hire a white police chief."
The Reverend Johnny Scott, head of the East St. Louis chapter of the NAACP, is calling for a federal investigation. Scott said discrimination against any race is wrong. Amen, but I'll be looking for the "reverends" Al and Jesse and the ACLU to protest this alleged injustice. I'm sure Obama will want to arrange a beer intervention.Yeah, right.
