Focus on Diversity: Boston Police Department = F
Mayor Menino has long touted his commitment to diversity in the City of Boston. Recently, when criticized by organizations such as MAMLEO and others, including the Blackstonian, the Mayor said the City of Boston is diverse and he challenged anyone to prove him wrong. Commissioner Davis has stated that the BPD is diverse and that they have done all they could do to ensure its diversity. The Baystate Banner, particularly, Publisher/Editor Melvin Miller defended Mayor Menino and suggested that his critics have no data to support the claims of a lack of diversity.
The Blackstonian accepted that challenge.
Here is the proof that Mayor Menino and BPD Commissioner Ed Davis are wrong and that the City of Boston is not diverse in its governance.
