Airlines Recuit Incompetent DIE Pilots

Victor Tangermann writes on Yahoo News:
Earlier this week, multi-hyphenate billionaire Elon Musk endorsed a tweet suggesting Black students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) have lower IQs and shouldn't become pilots.

"It will take an airplane crashing and killing hundreds of people for them to change this crazy policy of DIE," he tweeted, intentionally mixing up the letters of the acronym for "diversity, equity, and inclusion."

Civil rights groups were understandably horrified at the billionaire's racist comments.

"The only thing anyone needs to hear from Musk about diversity in the workplace is an apology," Marc Morial, president and CEO of the National Urban League, told NBC News, calling his statements "abhorrent and pathetic."

In his tweets, Musk appeared to imply that HBCU students shouldn't be allowed to become pilots. However, neither his statement nor the tweet he was responding to stand up to virtually any degree of scrutiny, from made-up average IQ numbers to wrongfully correlating high SAT scores with high IQ.

Musk also claimed that a United Airlines program that allows students at three HBCUs to interview to become a pilot meant that the airline had "prioritized DEI hiring" over "safety," a demonstratively false statement that only further highlights his twisted worldview.

It has become common for the DIE crowd to badmouth SAT and other standized tests, but they are actually quite reliable predictors of college and future success. Even the leftist NY Times admits it.

A lot of people figure that affirmative action hires are not so bad, as there is usually a White man to clean up the mess created. Maybe not, on an airplane.

I find it simply precious when a white male CEO is soooo willing to fire as many of those lower ranking terrible evil no-good RRRRRraaaaaaCIST micro transgressing cisgender white males as necessary... to keep their own damn job by providing human sacrifices to the DEI gods... and then brag about how tolerant they are.

When a virtue signaling moron offers you another man's stolen shirt, just explain to him to would rather have theirs... and then see what their reaction is.
