True there is much racism in the work place. When asking a black person to do something they say they are over worked and say they are only being asked to do it because they are black. I am tired of hearing this stuff. I think it is racist that so many athletes get scholarships because that are black. What percent are white? What percent are handicap? ZERO handicap and that is discrimination.
"Chip on their shoulder" = insecure white man around competent black pilots. Get over it. I'll bet you are looked upon as smart for attributing confidence. Yet a black pilot has a chip on their shoulder. The world does not revolve around you. This reminds me of whites still calling black people minorities when it is clear who the minority is on the planet. Face reality. It's over. May justice be done.
Racism is very real in the workplace. White people who are racist do not want to face reality about their behavior towards blacks. Racism in America and particularly in the workplace is out of control and needs to stop. White females in particular have a hatred towards educated, competent and experienced black professionals. It is a fact and they create extremely hostile work environments for black people. Trust me, black people would not waste their time going against a company and fighting a racist judicial system if this ignorant, juvenille and sick behavior was not happening. The reality is that no one wants to be treated with disrespect or be looked down upon based on the color of their skin. Black people will stop saying discrimination when whites stop being racist. Plain and simple. Deal with it or change your wicked behavior and raise your level of consciousness before it is too late. Planet earth will no longer support your wicked behavior.
retiredAs a retired UAL pilot that flew for the airline for more than 36 years, I found that those who were hired because of minorities rules or because of being female, were with few exceptions, less qualified than those that were hired because of their qualifications. Many of the first group seemed to carry a "chip" on their shoulders, rather than show quality performance. I totally support the theory that I would like the most qualified pilots to be flying the airplane.
It is interesting that there is no articulation as to why the black pilots feel they were discriminated against, more than just they did not get promoted. If the white pilots scored lower and were promoted anyway, I can see that being a case with merit. Granted, I dont know all the facts, but if a person scores lower than other people, the color of skin alone should not be enough to show discrimination. I would have the same opinion of the black pilots were promoted over the white ones.
The have Blacks in high paying jobs, so whats the issue.. Think they can do more on merit and less by running their mouth. The Im Black there for I am, doesnt work that well.
Black pilot's Association????? If there were a white pilots association the blacks world file a suit to be included.
response to: txblkleonAbsolutely ridiculous. How can a test be designed to elicit "black failure"? A question is asked. You either know the right answer, or you don't, irrespective of your skin color! I am white. I have never experienced the "BLACK EXPERIENCE"! But, as a white man, I see black teen pregnancy, higher than white. I see black school dropout rates higher than white, I see single parent homes, far more in black families, than white. I see black incarceration greatly exceeding white rates, not because the court system is biased, no, because blacks simply commit more crime. Is it racist to say that? No, just honest. I am SICK, SICK, SICK, of any problems black people have gets blamed on race! It;s bullcrap. I'd say what it really is, but the moderator would "moderate" me. What is the airline industry to do? Count black employees, determine their % of total company employees, then make sure wee have that % as a minimum of "promoted people"? Bullcrap! Just maybe because of the way you were raised, you just don't measure up. No one told the teenage girl to get pregnant, or any teenager to drop out of school in the 9th grade. THAT may be why blacks are frozen out of higher positions. Duh, they just might not be qualified!
guess what? they file in Ca. ---9th circuit court that is liberal biased and has over 90% of their cases reversed by the Supreme Court. No mistake trhey filed in Ca.
The big Crutch for inept people---RACE!!
