United Airlines New Affirmative Action Policy Should Terrify You

United Airlines has announced plans to train 5,000 new pilots. The plans include setting a quota for 50 percent–2,500–to be women or people of color. The racial and gender quotas are United Airlines continuous journey towards wokeness. While that might sound progressive, passengers should be very, very afraid.

The term “affirmative action” (quotas, really) is a remnant of the 1970s drive to increase educational and workplace opportunities for people in our society who were unrepresented.

In education, affirmative action resulted in waiving admission standards, as well as a generation of people who took degrees in social work and ethnic studies. In the workplace, affirmative action and quotas haven’t worked well, because they are administered by the same brand of federal bureaucrats who run the IRS.

Yes, we need antidiscrimination laws and paths to remedy discrimination based on race and gender. All that has been in place for years, but is it discrimination to ask a woman to pass a physical strength test to serve in a fire department?

 

The quota system has always been about math, not merit. Using merit, rather than quotas, seems to be a better idea when it comes to flying a multi-million-dollar aircraft with hundreds of lives at stake.

So, the next time you fly United, you might feel the same doubts and concerns as Dinesh D’Souza, a conservative commentator and frequent flier expresses. Is your pilot the very best qualified, or was he/she/the person of color placed in the seat as a result of United’s quota system?

    1. Agreed! Of course, being a non-vaccinated person they won’t let me on their airplanes either. I hope all the WOKE companies go bankrupt.

    2. First Delta did this a few months ago, now United?!!
      Two airlines I won’t even consider again. GOOD LUCK….. I’d sooner drive

  1. Makes you think twice about flying, right ? If people knew that they had a pilot with not the best brains on the block, no one would be flying … no matter the race of the pilot. UNITED IS SHAMEFUL … WILL NEVER FLY UNITED AGAIN DUE TO ITS “WOKENESS” ! The only way to fix companies like them is via Customer Retaliation. Money always makes a statement and causes results.

  2. It’s an unsafe policy to adopt It’s likely to cause more accidents and that leads to more tension between people, rather than ease it. Why would you not want the most talented, skilled pilots over this dangerous proposal?
    I know all genders and various races may qualify already and are certainly acceptable, but I also know, pilots of all genders and races’ skill levels must prove it. Nothing less than truthful accountability. Leaning on 50% quotas is absurd, in an enlightened society. It is discriminatory when even one segment of people is singled out.

  3. I am a Commercial pilot, and I can assure you that any monkey can fly an airplane but that does not make him or her a PILOT! What you do when things are NOT going well is what saves lives. Putting someone in the captains’ seat for any reason except training and ability is a huge mistake, UAL is going to cause people to die because of corporate stupidity.
    Sad.

  4. There are many women and minorities who are fabulous pilots and have been hired for years because they are qualified. They rose to the top like cream on milk. Thus, when companies hire, they should select the cream of the crop; now through wokeness when UAL hires, it’ll select the cream of the crap.
    Not going to fly UAL and trust my life to the lowest in the abilities range just because of gender or race.

  5. Setting quotas based on race or sex, rather than training and skills, is racist or sexist, and should be disallowed. Any company that started selecting White men above all others would definitely be slammed as racist and sexist, but ignoring qualified White men in favor of minorities and women seems to be fine with United.

  6. “Fly the Friendly Skies of United” no matter the experience, ability or record of the new pilots who give the airlines more diversity rather than safety concerns, What genius cam up with this idea? What a way to go to be racist toward any white person to appease others who are racist and inconsiderate of safety and total qualifications toward their passengers,. This is appalling.

  7. United Airlines will suffer crashes,much loss of life,and property damage,lawsuits will bankrupt this carrier!!!!!!????

  8. I agree with the comment from the pilot…any monkey can fly a plane – but the real point is training, experience, ability, and performance – not gender or color. So United, you choose to usurp safety for “quotas” and place your passengers and staff in harms way for WOKENESS or said another way, on your knees to the democratic party to sell out Americans ! That decision did not start at the mid-leadership level, it started and affirmed by the Board of Directors and President of the airline. So, the next crash or injury, place the names of each Board of Director and Legal Director on the suit as they are the one’s responsible for injury and death. Oh, ya, the lawyers will give a good spin to the issue, but in the end its a uncomplicated point…WHY, WHY, WHY !

  9. Another company going against the exact thing Dr. King preached. Judge a person by the content of their character and in this case their ability to fly a plane. You will never catch me on a United Airlines plane.

  10. Nothing is more gracious than a pretty lady serving dinner or a snack during a flight but I don’t want her sitting in the “left seat” at 35,000 feet altitude or on “final approach” with a side wind. You woke folks didn’t create the Heavens and Earth so stop trying to lord it over the lives of humanity.
