Yeah, but I didn't feel the need to go there; I don't hate anyone (except maybe airTran management who simply have no conscience).This isn't racist a comment?
At least it wasn't a "moose" in the cockpit. That would have been a real mess!!
Thanks PCL. My point was racism never ended "20" years ago. It still happens everyday, in and out of the flightdeck. I see, hear and live it.
BTW, I broke no laws nor comitted any moving violations that evening. When it happens to you, then you'll understand. Back to your cave....man.
Lear, I really don't post much as I'm as casual observer on these boards. I enjoy the banter as much as anyone, but this post was absolutely and totally ignorant.
You must be a WASP living in the burbs, behind a gate and happily driving your SUV to Costco on days off. I can tell you as a Mexican American, college educated airline pilot I have been treated unfairly countless times.
One night inparticular, as I was driving to a friends house in an affluent commnity I was stopped. My passenger and I were each questioned seperately, backgrounds checked and then left with a stern warning. "If there are any reports of activity in this neighborhood tonight, you two boys are the first I'm looking for" This what the cop said to us. Maybe my "airport" car looked out of place, but my money is on my skin color.
Racism is alive and well. As your post clearly demostrated.
I totally agree that racism is alive and well.
For example, I was driving through a hispanic neighborhood here in the South Phoenix area when all of a sudden my car starts getting hit with rocks. I look over and its men and women doing it...and they weren't the gangbanger kids that you'd think would be doing that. They were just angry that a white person was in their 'hood. Then they called me some racial names. Thats about the time I stepped on the gas pedal. Alot of my friends have similar stories Mozzer so I know exactly what you're talking about.
Look at the bright side...at least you don't feel like your life is in danger when you drive through white neighborhoods.
Why are white people the only ones that are required to be racially tolerant? The same rule doesn't apply to folks of color. Blacks and Latinos can be as bigoted as they please and none hold them to account.
