How right-wing influencers turned airplanes and airports into culture war battlegrounds – NBC News
The fact that there was even enough chatter to write this article makes me angry. The author did a good job of choosing one of my quotes that was not laced with obscenities. When it comes to diversity, airlines have historically not done scored well, especially in the cockpit. Today, airlines want to create opportunities for people of all backgrounds and colors so they can expand the pool of applicants.
Some of the comments against these plans seem to suggest airlines are picking people based solely on color and not skill and that safety will suffer. That is not true. Accusations like that only harden the historical belief by minorities that they do not belong. Airlines are doing the right thing by opening up the tent to make sure people from all backgrounds can access opportunities.
