Nice thought. Not sure it ever reached that status with enough folks.

This guy didn't just suddenly become a racist POS.

He was in the Fire Department. His peers knew his views. And he was left in charge of protecting people's lives with his racism intact.

Can I trust a racist will protect black lives in a fire the same way he would protect white lives?

#4 10 to 1 odds his racism wasn't contrasting with the point of view of most of his coworkers. He may have even developed that way of thinking at the fire department. That's how it worked with the guys I know.

My dad was a fire fighter. My brother was a fire fighter. My uncle was a fire fighter. I use me to hand our in the Cherrydale Fire Department in Arlington Va as a youth. Yes. They were all racist and anti feminist. Nudie posters adorned the barracks. One guy had a German Shepherd that hated blacks. As we were right next to DC there were plenty of race riots. So it's not like they being racist in a vacuum. It was the same in every fire house I visited. It was the times.

Blacks were discriminated against and women were not allowed to be firefighters.

It has changed tremendously but has never gone away completely.

Institutional Racism is pretty much in every one of these institution.

That is why they call it "institutional".
