    Unlike your feeble toon the United statement has exactly nothing to do with any customer requesting a flight crew on the basis of race. It also, a disappointment for your racism, has nothing to do with putting any untrained individual in the cockpit.

    United Airlines, the only major U.S. airline to own a flight school, will begin accepting applications today as it embarks on an ambitious plan to train 5,000 new pilots by 2030, at least half of them women and people of color. Backed by scholarship commitments from United Airlines and JPMorgan Chase, United Aviate Academy will create opportunities for thousands of students, including women and people of color to pursue a career as a commercial airline pilot, one of the most lucrative careers in the industry.

    In addition, for those United Aviate Academy students who may need additional financing, United has partnered with Sallie Mae to offer private student loans to ensure that no highly-qualified, highly-motivated, eligible applicants will be turned away solely because they can’t afford to enroll. United Aviate Academy expects to enroll 100 students in 2021.

    “Over the next decade, United will train 5,000 pilots who will be guaranteed a job with United, after they complete the requirements of the Aviate program – and our plan is for half of them to be women and people of color,” said United CEO Scott Kirby. “We’re excited that JPMorgan Chase has agreed to support our work to diversify our pilot ranks and create new opportunities for thousands of women and people of color who want to pursue a career in aviation.”

    To break down the financial barriers that limited access to the airline pilot career path for generations of women and people of color, United has committed to fund $1.2 million in scholarships. The airline’s credit card partner, JPMorgan Chase has also committed $1.2 million to support women and people of color who are accepted to United Aviate Academy."

    Whitmer must be guilty of making Payne feel impotent and inadequate. She does, after all, sure an unseemly affection for facts.

    Things that will never happen: Lester showing evidence of intelligence. He couldn’t even get the United statement right, let alone offer a decent critique.

    Bok is an abject failure unless he’s trying to make conservatives look bad.

    Tossing a firearm away is not really a good idea. Is this a Bennett off day?
