That's nice. Affirmative action is constitutionalneueregel » 08 Apr 2021, 7:37 am » wrote: ↑
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (42 U.S.C. 2000e and following) prohibits employers from discriminating against applicants and employees on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, and national origin (including membership in a Native American tribe). It also prohibits employers from retaliating against an applicant or employee who asserts his or her rights under the law.
How can you know so little?
“Despite these two major exceptions, employers may not use affirmative action to hire more minority employees solely to increase the diversity of their workforce. As a result, the Fisher case only applies to schools, not employers.”
When a person of ANY race or sex is given additional points on a test to qualify as a pilot, an air-traffic controller, a doctor, a surgeon, a cop, a fireman, or any of the dozens of other jobs where the public safety is concerned, THAT IS RACIST, SEXIST, AND IS ILLEGAL, and has been since the Civil Rights Act of 1964. And white men are protected by those laws just as minorities or women are.
I want people being given a hand up. There is a standard all pilots must meet. If the women and minorities pass it they become pilots. It's that simple.Zeets2 » 08 Apr 2021, 7:59 am » wrote: ↑
Do YOU want someone flying a plane you're on or a surgeon operating on you who was given additional points on their pilot's qualification test or their admission to medical school for having the right skin color or for being a woman, when white men who are more qualified are rejected? Liberals are too dumb to acknowledge it, but our country is based on the belief of equal OPPORTUNITY, and NOT, a guarantee of equal OUTCOME! Doing so is an illegal quota system, which stupid liberals will try to force on the country every time they're given the chance, and of course, the fake news media will NEVER call them out on it!
And dopes like you applaud it, until YOUR plane crashes or YOUR minority surgeon hurts or kills a patient like you or someone you care about!
If united is hiring pilots and it looks at the list of QUALIFIED pilots and it chooses to seek diversity in their hiring then i have no problem with thatneueregel » 08 Apr 2021, 7:58 am » wrote: ↑

Of course, that’s not to say United won’t institute their own policy and dare somebody to challenge them in court.
Good luck to United selling the idea that the flight deck very well might have an affirmative action flight crew. That should really go well for them.
No, it IS NOT that simple, you moron! If a selected minority gets 10 points added to his test for being of a preferred race which raises his test score from a 75 to an 85, while a white male applicant scores an honest 84 on his test with NO points added, then tell me WHICH ONE IS MORE QUALIFIED?
Me neither! United has now been crossed off my list, and I hope ever other American does the same! I don't care if I have to tolerate non-direct flights or pay a few bucks extra for a ticket, I'm done with United!
Wrong. You must pass a basic qualification to be a pilot. If you pass you are a pilot. If not you're not.Zeets2 » 08 Apr 2021, 8:19 am » wrote: ↑
And only liberal dopes like you don't even recognize the fact Congress DOES NOT PERMIT THEMSELVES to follow that same affirmative action **** BECAUSE THEY FLY ON PRIVATE JETS WHICH DON'T ascribe to that kind of discrimination for themselves, ONLY FOR PEONS LIKE YOU AND ME!
Why are minorities and women having difficulty competing against white men for pilot jobs?
And how does that work in your tiny brain if a non-white applicant failed the test with a grade of 60, but passed when given the additional 10 points because of his skin color, and he gets the job over a white who scored a legitimate 70 on the same test and was passed over so they could meet their minority quota?
Dude you are not getting it. United is choosing from the pool of already qualified pilots. You have to be a pilot already before you can even applyZeets2 » 08 Apr 2021, 9:17 am » wrote: ↑
You're the moron who doesn't get it! If United is choosing their pilots based on their test scores, and certain minorities are given an unearned 10 points additionally on that test because of their skin color, THEY ARE LESS QUALIFIED THAN OTHERS WHO LOST OUT BECAUSE THEY WERE WHITE!
Moron. Listen closelyZeets2 » 08 Apr 2021, 9:29 am » wrote: ↑
Don't try to sugarcoat it, fool! It's pure reverse discrimination, which is just as bad and just as illegal as if white men were given an advantage for THEIR skin color! How can you be so blind not to be able to comprehend that simple fact?
