Good plan. Hire people based on the color of their skin rather than the contents of their brains. What could possibly go wrong? Onward, Social Justice Warriors! Next, on to the NBA!

The sound you hear is hundreds of class-action law firms clipping this article to put in their “now we wait” files for future use.

Continental was a good airline as was United but since they merged they've been horrible. The goal they stated for hiring new pilots is the icing on the cake.

This is about as stupid as it can be. Go woke , go broke (and crash)

I stand with the women and men of all colors and backgrounds who fight against the leftist nonsense. Quality of character, skill and ability first and only.

is there any institution in this country that the left has not destroyed with their destructive notion of equality??? Justice is in the eye of the beholder. If justice is put above everything else, then there will have to be a war to among alternative meanings of justice.

remember - it's not equality. It's equity. 2 completely different things.

yes, equity is more cosmic than equality.....both are still rooted in the cancerous religion of Marxism....or as Orwell said, The Revolution will be complete when the language is perfect

'Justice' is NOT 'in the eye of the beholder'! The line between Right and Wrong is VERY CLEAR. To FULLY understand these things, I would encourage ALL to watch the youtube vids of Mark Passio. Please start with his EARLIEST videos.
