Nothing else to say. Every segment of American society is anti-white, to the detriment of the society white people uniquely created. It’s all a nosedive to the African mean from here… [United Airlines prepares to shake up white, male-dominated pilot population, Reuters, April 6, 2021]:

United Airlines said on Tuesday it wants women and people of color to make up at least half of the 5,000 pilots it plans to train this decade at its new flight school, a push to diversify a career traditionally dominated by white men.

The announcement comes as U.S. airlines resume pilot hiring halted last year during the pandemic and as they find themselves in the crosshairs of politically charged issues involving race.

“We want to make sure that we are tapping into a big deep talent pool and not limiting ourselves to just one section of the pond,” Chief Communications Officer Josh Earnest said on a Zoom call with journalists.

Chicago-based United joined Delta Air Lines and American Airlines on Monday in speaking out against voting restrictions following recent legislation in states like Georgia that activist groups say unfairly target Black and other racial minority voters.

United is the only major U.S. airline to own a flight school, the United Aviate Academy, which it bought last year just before vanishing demand because of the pandemic forced the industry to scale back its operations.

Now, as more Americans are vaccinated, airlines are ramping up again.

United plans to hire 10,000 pilots by 2030, half coming through its academy, and the rest from other airlines or the U.S. military.

Of United’s roughly 12,000 pilots, about 7% are women and 13% people of color, the company said.

There are fewer than 100 black women pilots flying for major airlines, United pilot Carole Hopson said on the call, adding this situation had to change.

Becoming a pilot can be a long and costly pursuit and the company is offering $1.2 million in academy scholarships.

The airline’s credit card partner, JPMorgan Chase, will fund another $1.2 million for women and people of color accepted to the academy, which expects to enroll 100 students this year.

United said it hopes the program gives it an advantage in recruiting and training pilots as the industry braces for a wave of retirements at the mandatory age of 65 and after thousands retired early during the pandemic.

How dare white men train to be pilots!

How dare white men excel at training to be pilots!

How dare People of Color don’t be immediately bestowed the honor of flying planes, without training to be pilots!

America, as presently constituted in its extreme anti-whiteness, is irredeemable.

White privilege is a myth. Extreme anti-whiteness from Corporate America is a fact.

  2. In the future, the media will have to forego reporting on the names of the flight crews after any accidents. Hearing that Phelopia and Testicleeze were the captain and co-pilot would be racist.

    Is it possible that with AI and deskilling, these airline companies are risking it for the sake of political peace? Malaysia has had more of its fair share of air crashes since it brought in affirmative action for all professions. Affirrmative action brings in an attitude of racial identity rather than strict merit. Ethiopian international airlines has international pilots when flying outside Africa. I suspect there will be more air crashes but they are bargaining on not enough to change the policy and admit demeriting. How will the airline CEOs and very important people fly? Will there be a secret roster? The rest of us are collateral damage.

    Maybe they could spring Auburn Calloway from Supermax to train new “pilots of color”. Calloway is the negro pilot who, after spending time as a total waste in the Navy and working for and getting fired by another airline, got a job as a pilot with Fed Ex. When they too were going to can him in 1994, he hitched a ride on a flight and hijacked the plane trying to murder the crew while in flight and to crash the aircraft.

    They can’t get David Burke, the negro airline worker who got fired in 1987 and snuck onboard an aircraft, shooting the crew in flight and causing a crash that killed 42 humans and his own cursed carcass. He “be daid”….

    There was a time when excellence was pursued and organizations would boast of having the best personnel to serve their customers. Now they brag about hiring people because they’re black or female or both, and not necessarily even competent, much less the best.

    A long time ago I was in a paratroop unit and I was confident in the skill, training and experience of my fellow unit members. Prior to a jump we’d be checked out by a jumpmaster to ensure we were rigged up properly, and he’d put us out of the aircraft at the right place to ensure we hit the drop zone. Never once did I wish for an AA hire jumpmaster to inspect my harness or put me out the door over the DZ because there was something about their skin color that made them magical and more qualified than whities.

  28. Alas, United Airlines already has experience with the unintended but perhaps inevitable consequences of race-based pilot selection: United Express Flight 6291 which stalled and crashed on approach to Port Columbus International Airport in Columbus, Ohio on January 7, 1994.

    The inexperienced crew of a commuter airliner that crashed last winter in Columbus, Ohio, failed to notice the sophisticated new aircraft was losing speed, then inexplicably did the wrong thing when the stall warning activated, federal investigators said yesterday… Although the crew was properly trained and certified, the pilot and copilot were operating under a particularly heavy burden of inexperience, according to the board. The copilot had only 36 flying hours as an airline pilot, although he had flown single-engine aircraft for several years. The pilot had about 3,000 hours, a respectable amount of experience for a commuter pilot, but had been newly promoted to captain, newly promoted to the Jetstream 4101 and was flying for the first time in a plane with an autopilot and a sophisticated “glass cockpit” with new instruments and displays…

    Investigators described a crew that never fully stabilized the airplane on its approach, became distracted and began making an escalating number of small errors that amounted to “a very poorly planned and executed approach characterized by an absence of procedural discipline.”

    The board’s report said neither crew member monitored the plane’s critical airspeed or noticed it was slowing. When the stall warning activated about 300 feet above the runway, the pilot inexplicably failed to push the engines to full power and raised the wing flaps, which further robbed the plane of lift.

    The accident and subsequent investigation were the subject of a 2019 episode of the series known variously as Mayday, Air Crash Investigation, Air Emergency and Air Disasters:

    The episode can almost be caricatured for its tiptoeing around the obvious issue.

    The official reason for the presence of inexperienced flight crew was of course not affirmative action but the unintended affects of a misguided labor-management agreement:

    One reason they had been promoted over more-experienced pilots was an agreement between the airline and the pilots’ union that locked crew members into jobs for 18 months to two years.

    Board members said the purpose of the agreement — to gain sufficient experience on each job — was laudable but had the unintended effect of preventing more-experienced pilots from being reassigned to the new aircraf t.

    It’s good to see that on the airline’s original tweet, the comments are very, very sensible. They are especially harsh whenever the airline’s social media person pops up to defend the policy and claims that everyone will have to meet the same standards.

    The sad thing is, said social media person, who I’m guessing is a child, probably believes that.

  37. You might want to review my old video on the Tuskegee Airmen. The video is about eight years old and it pertained to events about eighty years ago but some of the issues are still relevant today.

    Blacks should have made superior WWII fighter pilots because of their better eyes. At the relevant ages of fighter pilots, blacks have only about half as much myopia. Good eyesight was very important then. There was some radar in some planes but most enemy spotting was visual. See the enemy first. Shoot first. Ted Williams – the last .400 hitter – had terrific eyesight. They say he could see the stitching on the ball cover as it came toward him at 90 mph. I suspect that Richard Bong (our best American Ace) had similar eyes.

    Alas nature gives with one hand and takes away with the other. The human genome conjoins various attributes. It appears that the gene that expands your brain case is the same gene that expands your eye sockets. Big brains are an unalloyed good, but bigger, longer eyes than normal are out of focus. They are nearsighted. That’s why guys who ware glasses seem to be smarter. They are.

    So NASA invented the “space shuttle” program, where any experienced 737 pilot could qualify.

But after the Space Shuttle started KILLING PEOPLE live on TV, the only piece of the “USA Space Program” was the Space Station.

    I think the airline’s bottom line will ultimately overcome their desire to virtue signal, just like in any field where an incompetent affirmative action hire put in the wrong position can start costing lives. There have to be checks on the autonomy of those hires. In the airline’s case, they might hire a bunch of black women to be pilots, but they will always have a white male co-pilot fly with them. The black woman can have the prestige of being nominally in charge, but when a problem arises, there will at least be someone on board they know has the training and know-how to handle it.

    The same holds in medicine. Large hospitals are ravenous to hire black doctors, especially to put in their commercials and advertisements. However, while a handful of these black doctors are very competent, the rest can potentially get in over their heads. If a black doctor starts having a lot of complications or has multiple lawsuits for misdiagnosis or negligence filed against him or her, the hospital has to do something. Short of firing these doctors (which could be a disaster from a public relations standpoint), they often promote them into high-paid “administrative” positions in the hospital, where they can’t hurt patients or get into any real legal trouble.

    I saw this with a black doctor a family member saw first after getting diagnosed with cancer. She recommended my relative come in for extensive surgery that she would perform the following week. While she was confident she could remove most of the tumor, unfortunately my relative would be left with a permanent colostomy. Knowing something about the field, I told my relative to get a second opinion at a better hospital in the city where I live. Sure enough, the doctors there recommended chemotherapy first to shrink the tumor down, followed by a much less complicated surgery (and most importantly, no colostomy). We went with that option and my relative is doing just fine 8 years later. I recently checked in to see what that black doctor my relative first saw was up to these days. She is still working at the same hospital, but sure enough, is now “senior vice president and associate CEO” of that hospital’s whole medical network, a purely administrative position.

    At the end, she boards an airplane, and the stewardess says the same thing. Woman freaks out, refuses to board. Plane takes off without her, and blows up. Nowadays, I could see something like, the woman starting to board the plane, and then there’s a cut with a black pilot saying “Yo Baby, come fly wit’ ME!” Cut back to the woman running back into the boarding room, plane taking off, and blowing up. And then cue Rod Serling, albeit slightly edited…”The cure to some nightmares is not to be found in known medical journals.

    I haven’t flown private since before the virus, but I am sure it is much more lax than any of these standard flights. The screening at the private terminals is fairly relaxed, they check your name/ID to a manifest and pretty much waive you thru. Twice we drove straight to the plane on the tarmac and unloaded our bags, but I usually never brought more than a carry on with me. No overhead bins on the plane he worked on, they had a little closet to stow personal belongings/small bags. It was a really great experience that quickly spoils you to air travel, for me especially because a few days after flying private, I’d be standing in line for TSA with the rest of the cattle at whichever commercial airport I was flying back home from.

    Well, now, that is a radical idea. Strangely, I also spent over 40 years in the software development business, and I can recall only one black programmer in any of the shops I worked in. Not in my team, so I have no idea how good he was, but I assume if he had been good, that would have been remarkable enough that I would have heard about it.

    In South Africa, the Computer Society, as SA descended toward civilizational collapse, tried to get on the bandwagon with special training programmes for blacks. They found it was not possible. Babuntus just don’t think like people. They can’t grasp the underlying concepts.

    So that 2% of programmers that were black and as sharp as a tack, I’m guessing was a single individual. Not impossible, but highly unlikely and not exactly a trend. Or as an academic friend of mine put it: “The plural of ‘anecdote’ is not ‘data’.”

    “In South America, the Indians always walk in single file. At least, the one I saw did.”

    the problem with the black race was mostly that black males that have children and don’t raise them.

    No, that’s not the problem. That is one symptom of the problem.

    I say “Bring it on”. I am ready and more than capable to drop them in their tracks…and then just walk away. F these a-holes.

    They are already doing this. Remember the white girl who was drugged, raped, left for dead by two African-American gentlefellows? Yeah, I didn’t think so, it happened a couple weeks back.

    My 22-year career as a programmer contradicts your claim. I’ve never met, let alone worked with, a member of this race who I would define as very intelligent. My entire career has been in Georgia, which is utterly infested with orcs, so surely I would have encountered these unicorns of which you speak?

    I’ve had to deal with IT for about 30 years now, over the course of my career. Over that time, I can think of one that really stands out. This was back in the early/mid 2000s, and she truly was a unicorn. She was knowledgeable AND friendly/easy to talk to, almost enough to make you believe in “Paint Job Theory!” Other than that, there’s two others that come to mind. One, from back in the late 90’s/early 2000’s that was nice enough, one of those religious types, but it didn’t let it consume him. But, from what I’ve heard, he was pretty useless when it came to work. He got laid off, which is somewhat rare for an orc…usually the company would let a more qualified White go first!

    Currently, there’s one black in our IT group. He’s well-paid, but mostly just answers phones between his cigarette breaks, and transfers calls to people who can actually fix things. He’s actually not that bad to deal with. He’s loud, can sometimes get a bit full of himself, but usually fairly friendly. He’s from North Carolina originally, and a little bit country. I think the “country” counteracts the “jungle” somewhat, in his disposition.

    So, in my limited experience, I’d say of the three, one was excellent, a “talented tenth” or whatever you want to call her. The other two, sort of mid-pack. Nothing really stand-out, but nothing really horrible either. Even though the one did get laid off. But, the fact that, over my 30 years of work, I can only think of three blacks in IT, that probably says something right there…that many of them simply aren’t qualified, in the first place.

    “A few things I learned while going to lunch with my black friend for 3 years at our computer job: one, he didn’t know white people sunburn”

    When I worked in IT, I also learned a few things from Black folks.

    1. One of them did not know that Stevie Wonder played with the Funkadelics.
    2. Two of them did not believe that Aztecs conducted human sacrifices. They said it was all made up by White people to make the Aztecs Indians look bad.
    3. They all believed that all White people were guilty of racism and slavery.

    But otherwise they were fairly competent but not trusted with the real complex projects.

    “ United declined to say how much the flight academy would cost students but said it would fund $1.2 million in scholarships “to break down the financial barriers that limited access to the airline pilot career path for generations of women and people of color. JPMorgan Chase said it will provide another $1.2 million in scholarships to help increase diversity.”

    JP Morgan/Chase Execs should be required to fly United with their diversity hires.

    I can only image how many instructors will walk away from this school after seeing the crop of trainees they’re be signing off on.

    It’s just like the magical state of Wakanda, only it’s now happening there in America. You can blame old Stan Lee for all of this. Exposing the U.S. blacks to seeing what their highly advanced and technical African brethren are achieving. Suddenly life imitating art.

    @ Pat Boyle,

    So good to see you posting again. Hope things are well with you.

    Piloting an airliner is no longer the elite occupation it once was even though it retains prestige. The airplanes pretty much fly themselves – the pilots are computer operators in a smart uniform.

    Maybe piloting hasn’t the elite status it used to, but airliners do not “pretty much fly themselves.” Flight computers handle routine phases of flight such as cruise and normal navigation. Critical phases in which most accidents occur — takeoff, approach, and landing — definitely require pilot input and skill. And while transceivers report ordinary altitude and course information to controllers on the ground, personal pilot-controller radio communication is essential at times. Finally, in urgent or emergency situations the pilots’ understanding what’s going on and what they must do in response is supremely important.

    No compromises or lowered standards for safety-critical professions! Aviation must be shielded from diversity hiring. That includes pilots, controllers, technicians, and programmers.

    IT is because of black incompetence. It wasn’t the planes.Planes are to advanced for low IQ black African primitives.

    Regulations still keep children from driving cars. Soon that will no longer apply, once autonomous vehicles are mandated to Save the Earth.

    Getting preferential treatment all through school and into a profession may play some games with your head, perhaps they aren’t really able to critically assess their own abilities or shortcomings.

    Just looking at the unwarranted, overblown levels of self confidence with many of these people is enough to promote howls of laughter. I’m not completely convinced that ignorance and lack of self awareness are always connected, but with what I’ve witnessed in 30+ years of technical work it damn sure helps to know your limitations.

    I had the same experience riding on an all-night Amtrak train that stopped about every hour to pick up and let off (mostly orc) passengers. I was squeezed against the window by a humongous female orc sitting next to me. Unfortunately railroads no longer carry cattle so they don’t have cattle cars, which would have been more appropriate for this cow.

    Never again.

    Stevie Wonder didn’t play with what I’m guessing Parliament/Funkadelic, i.e. he played for George Clinton in his band.

    I don’t think this is the case unless tou mean he jammed with him or shared a stage.

  94. @Piglet

    Took the auto train out of Lorton to Florida, never again. That thing runs on colored people time. They made an announcement regarding smoking, if they caught you having a smoke, they kicked you off. Unfortunately I don’t smoke or I would have been puffing away.
