A mayor serving in a major metropolitan area receives an internal memorandum indicating personnel at many police stations are single-race. At the time of the report, thirty percent of the police force was black or Hispanic.

Assuming just these facts, what is the strongest argument that might be advanced by the transferred officers based on constitutional grounds?
