DOJ’s Race Bias Prosecution Team Mostly White


The criminal section of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division is lacking in diversity.

Since 2003, the section has not hired any black attorneys to replace those who have left, according to internal records obtained by WJLA-TV in Arlington, Va. Only two attorneys within the 50-lawyer division are black.

The television station found that the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission referred 3,200 complaints to the division over a six-year period. Only six resulted in prosecutions for race discrimination.

The DOJ said it has taken steps to recruit and mentor minorities.
