Black firefighters quit Aurora union, blast city’s recruitment efforts

Seven of the 10 African-American union firefighters in Aurora resigned from Aurora Firefighter Protective Association Monday, claiming the union hasn't done enough to recruit or help promote African-Americans, The Denver Post reports. Only 3 percent of the city's firefighters are black, while blacks make up 14 percent of the population, the breakaway group said.
