The Left Goes All In On Ending Air Passenger Safety

Last week I posted on how the left has gone all in on the concept of black inferiority. In that post I highlighted the point made by an "educator" that certain traits are inherently white which meant that their opposite was indicative of black culture:
“The racial narrative of White tends to be like this: Rugged individual, honest, hard-working, disciplined, rigorous, successful,” she said. “And so then, the narrative of U.S. public education: Individual assessments, competition, outcome over process (I care more about your grades than how you’re doing), ‘discipline’ where we care more about your attendance and making sure you’re not tardy than we care about your relationships … proper English must be spoken (which is just assimilation into standard U.S. dialect), hierarchical power structure, and heavy goal orientation.”
Now there are those who may think that this is only going on in "education" but no, this concept is being pushed throughout America (and elsewhere I suppose). Today's example comes from the FAA.
The Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) has been running a program for the past two years to promote unqualified nonwhites as air traffic controllers (ATC), despite the ready availability of highly-qualified whites.

News of the anti-white racism emerged after a lawsuit named the government’s Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EOCC) as a co-respondent in an action launched by white ATCs against the FAA.

For those put off by the language used in the linked piece, please get over yourself. The point isn't the language it is WHAT is being done. Pay attention. Air Traffic controllers are the people who essentially direct all air traffic. If they mess up, you die either in the air or on the ground. If they don't mess up tooo badly you get million dollar damage to airplanes. In other words, this is a profession where a typo, missed decimal point and lack of attention to detail doesn't just result in a need for a retraction or reprint, but could end up killing people. You would think that of any profession, an Air Traffic Controller would be immune from dumb diversity experiments. You'd think.
According to the claim, filed in United States District Court for the District of Arizona, the original test, known as AT-SAT, tested for “characteristics needed to effectively perform as an air traffic controller. The characteristics include numeric ability, prioritization, planning, tolerance for high intensity, decisiveness, visualization, problem-solving, and movement.”

Beginning in 1995, the FAA collaborated with universities and colleges to create accredited degree programs in diverse Collegiate Training Initiative (CTI) schools.

“Then, the FAA gave a hiring preference to veterans, those with CTI program degrees, references from CTI administrators, and ‘well qualified’ rankings on the challenging Air Traffic Selection and Training exam (AT-SAT)—a validated, proctored, eight-hour, computer-based test,” the MSLF said.

You'll see that the test reflected the requirements of the job. You'll also note that those requirements are, per the preceding quote to be "white supremacist".
But on December 30, 2013, the FAA announced that it was eliminating the test to transform the agency into “a more diverse and inclusive workplace.” The announcement was “accompanied by a suspect analysis that purported to show women and minorities as ‘underrepresented’ in those the FAA hired,” the MSL statement continued. The old AT-SAT test was replaced with a “Biological Questionnaire,” which contained questions such as “The number of high school sports I participated in was . . .”; “How would you describe your ideal job?”; “What has been the major cause of your failures?” and, “More classmates would remember me as humble or dominant?”
What exactly do these things have to do with the job? This is not the first time such things have been done. See the New Haven Firefighter suit Lefties are willing to put your safety at risk in order to push their programs. I am all for hiring people who are qualified and if a company wants to diversify their workforce, no problem, well some problem but only ideologically in terms of brain drain, but there ought never be a lowering of standards to get there. Lowering of standards is an admission of black inferiority. If you don't believe in it, then you don't lower the standards for work.
