Muhammed, president of the International Association of Black Professional Fire Fighters, makes a statement in front of the Greater New Haven Chapter of the NAACP in New Haven, Conn., supporting the city of New Haven in a reverse-discrimination lawsuit brought by white firefighters, pending in the U.
