Subject: Discrimination
Source: Wall Street Journal (New York)


Although African-Americans have long complained about unequal, and sometimes brutal treatment at the hands of the police, it took the August airing of Mark Fuhrman's raw, racist words to shock many whites into taking the problem seriously. This Wall Street Journal series looks at the experiences of African-American police officers, what remedies have been tried to solve problems of racism on police forces, and how psychological testing has not worked in weeding out racist police. (Aug. 31 - Sept. 11, 1995)
