I suppose that joining the OWRAP (Organization of White Redneck Airline Pilots) would be just as career enhancing?marcal said:Is it wrong for someone who is not a minority to join OBAP and put it on a resume in hopes of scoring an interview? Has anyone tried this before?
He actually did change the name..First and last...He ACTUALLY changed his name? Or just on the resume?
Perfectly put.hbrow15 said:the short answer is no its not wrong. We have members that are not black, and they are all welcome and treated like any other member. But if you are joining only to show up at convention time and drop off some resume's and not participate and support in any of the other volounteer events like ACE camps or Pilots in schools, that is certianly frowned upon by all members. Hope to see you at the convention in Phoenix next year.
Since you didn't really get the REAL answer to your question I will give you the real!!! As a member I can tell you that your race plays very little in your being a member. We have many non minority members!!!marcal said:Is it wrong for someone who is not a minority to join OBAP and put it on a resume in hopes of scoring an interview? Has anyone tried this before?
Changing your name or misusing membership in a fine organization like the black pilots group to get some advantage not due you is being a schmuck. WC (1/4 Native American)
There was a pilot in my squadron that had a sex change operation. I think "she" works for american.
Actually no. My parents and grandparents on both sides were pretty progressive for their times. Consequently, like many Americans, I'm a mix of a lot of races. To get back on topic.....misusing membership in an organization or changing your name to something sterotypical of a minority to get some hiring advantage is wrong.CSY Mon said:And ya are 3/4 white...?
