Our flight deck should reflect the diverse group of people on board our planes every day. That’s why we plan for 50% of the 5,000 pilots we train in the next decade to be women or people of color. Learn more and apply now: https://t.co/VbOFvFOksB pic.twitter.com/r0ScH6MQAJ

Generally speaking, elites take a lot of plane trips. So even at the national airlines of revolutionary sub-Saharan countries in the 1970s, they seldom yanked the stick from the hands of white pilots for political principles.
But American elites are getting so high on their own supply that they aren’t even fazed anymore by the increased chance of plowing into the ground at 400 mph. It’s racist to even think that lowering standards to let in more Diverse pilots might raise the risk of mass death.
And, besides, real soon now robots will do all the flying, so pilots are just going to be totally symbolic, right? And what’s more important than symbolism? Ours is now the Symbolic Society where all that matters is getting more of the Good People and fewer of the Bad People in positions of respect.
A new slogan for United Airlines, which today announced its new affirmative action hiring plan for pilots:
Fly the Frazzled Skies of United: We Promise That Our Pilots, While Not the Best Available, Will At Least Have Met the Minimum Standards!

United Airlines’ alternative new slogan: Think of how relieved you’ll feel on the 50% of our flights piloted by someone who wasn’t picked for his race or sex!
“Don’t worry, scro’! There’re plenty of ‘tards out there living really kick-ass lives. My first wife was ‘tarded: She’s a pilot now.”
Ron Unz adds:
You’re forgetting the vast increase of wealth among those elites, especially the top slice of the elites that are really pulling the strings.
Somehow I suspect that private jet pilots will still be carefully selected based upon merit…
