I don't think the NBA has enough hispanic players.YHGTBFSM?!?!
As if airlines don't have enough problems: Let's create new ones.
Exactly!!!!!! We're not hiring folks for a job that just anyone can do. Just because you can fly an ILS does not mean you are qualified for the job. With all of the focus on safety right now following the Colgan crash, you would expect people to finally realize that there is NO substitute for experience. If you start [or continue to] fill seats of commercial airliners with people based on ethnicity, gender, etc., then there will be more accidents that can be avoided.If I were a qualified/educated black person trying to get hired by Delta right now; this would embarass me.
Delta used to have a VP of Diversity. Seriously! The Black leadership will complain because that is the only way anyone will notice them. That kind of crap is why I was so glad to leave ATL.
Black mayors, ceo's, business owners, news anchors, chamber presidents, NPO presidents, various govt officials, sheriff, chief of police, the list goes on, and yet they still complain about diversity. Oh yeah, didn't a bunch of Americans just elect a BLACK PRESIDENT?
Pretty amazing they can get statistics like that, but when we ask our union "how much Delta flying is performed by Delta pilots" the response is like asking Dick Cheney about his lesbian daughter.In 2007, according to the document, the airline spent $28 million with Asian-American-owned firms; $26 million with Hispanic-owned firms; $21 million with African-American firms; and $200,000 with Native American-owned firms.
For the first eight months of 2008, the airline only spent $12 million with African-American suppliers; $20 million with Hispanic-owned firms; $18 million with Asian-American-owned firms and $1 million with Native Americans.
You nailed it! If there were ever a time when they were not stirring the pot to create a perception of inequality they would not be able to extort or ask for large donations. Have you ever heard of any of these so called leaders having a real job? If so what and I would like to see proof that it's not some fluffed up job to keep them from having to work a real job.NO! They wouldn't have a job otherwise.
