Green Bay has a black police officer for the first time in the 152-year history of its department.

Solomon Ayres hits the streets this week, beginning the first phase of a 17-week training regime. He says he expects some resistance from both black and white residents. But thinks his life experiences will help defuse difficult situations and make him open to different points of view.

Fran Jonet, president of Green Bay's Police and Fire Commission, says hiring a black recruit is a long-awaited step in the right direction.

Census figures show that racial minorities make up about 17 percent of Green Bay's over 98,000 people.

Its police department has 177 sworn officers. That includes 15 women, four American Indians or Alaskan natives and one Hispanic.

Nah, not really. I just figured since no one else gave a crap about your thread I'd give you a charity reply so you wouldn't feel too bad. You're welcome. :wavey:

I'll bet anyone a million bucks that when Officer Ayres is out of uniform, the first question people around town ask him is, "What position do you play?"

No worry, as long as you're around I don't have to worry about a thread if it's about someone black because you'll be in there making a feeble attempt at showing your hate. :wavey:

I've known a handful of people from that area and all agree that it is very segregated much to its shame. Let's hope this is the beginning of a big change.
