White CA Cops Allege "Anti-White" Discrimination

SAN FRANCISCO - In California, a white male cop claims he was passed over for a promotion in 2007 because of racial bias.

Black News, African American News, Minority News, Civil Rights News, Discrimination, Racism, Racial Equality, Bias, Equality, Afro American News"The city has a longstanding custom and practice in discriminating against white males," according to a lawsuit complaint filed by officers Heinz Hofmann and Thomas Buckley.

"The reason plaintiffs were passed over for lower-ranking minorities," the complaint says, "was because plaintiffs are white," local sources report.

Hoffman and Buckley's attorney, Patrick Manshardt said, "The primary issue was race. Lieutenant Hoffman and Lieutenant Buckley weren't of the race that the department was seeking to promote."

Manshardt said the Department has a history of unlawful, antiwhite discrimination. The attorney previously won a $1.6 million settlement for his clients in 2007 after five African Americans were promoted unfairly over white officers, Manshardt says.

In the case of Hoffman and Buckley, "I imagine there will be some time before they get around to making up a reason as to why they didn't promote my client," Manshardt said. "I already know the reason, and it was because they promoted people because of their race."

According to the complaint in Hoffman v. SF, San Francisco, the SFPD changed its promotion exam policies in response to a 1978 court order, thanks to a 1973 antidiscrimination lawsuit filed by Black SFPD employees calling themselves Officers for Justice.

At root of the allegation of antiwhite bias is the way SFPD promotion exams are graded. Rather than score exams on a precise, 1 to 100 numerical basis, exam results are categorized according general grade levels.

Candidates are then selected for eligibility for promotion according to criteria such as education, training, assignments, disciplinary history, and commendations or awards.

According to the complaint, this system discriminates against Whites because it leads to an unfair overemphasis on subjective, nonexam-related factors.
