Skip to comments.1st all black female flight crew makes aviation history
Posted on 07/08/2013 7:54:37 AM PDT by Baynative
Atlantic Southeast Airlines, an Atlanta-based Delta connection regional carrier, recently made aviation history when one of its flights from Atlanta to Nashville was conducted by a crew comprised entirely of African-American women. This landmark event which happened by chance comes on the tail end of Black History Month.
It's late but interesting to me in that I never saw a mention of these women anywhere, but there's plenty of free Obama phone ranters and race baiters in the news everyday.

Do they force their white passengers to sit at the back of the plane? The fact that this crew is all black is absolutely NOT a coincidence. I’m tired of this ‘racial awareness’ crap! There’s NO place for this kind of nonsense in America, but of course the Dems need to keep it alive in order to DIVIDE AND CONQUER.
Did you survive?
Yes, but I pinched a hole in the seat cover...:)
"There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs. There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don't want the patient to get well." - Booker T. Washington
Will Barbara Billingsley be needed when the pilot announces over the intercom?
Please chose the proper response to your comment:
#1: I am shocked at the audacity of your comment and you should expect severe repercussions from it.
#2: Oh, no you di'int.
Cowed by the PC police?
By CHANCE???? Just BEFORE BLACK HISTORY MONTH?? LOL!!
Very wise woman
Do you have any evidence to back this up, anything at all?
The fact that the all-black composition of this crew was noticed is absolutely not a coincidence, but the fact that the crew was all-black is almost certainly a coincidence. Selecting flight crews can be a pretty complicated task, considering pilot availability, certifications to fly certain aircraft/routes, seniority, preferences, flight hour regs, etc. There's just no place in the system to say "give me an all-[black/white/asian/whatever] crew for X flight."
not only can Blacks be whatever the choose be but also the Whites on welfare can as well. Welfare is not a Blacks only place as you seem to believe. I guess we haven’t come as far as I thought with such statements as that
because of people with the mentality you present. Unfortunately I remember having to use “Colored only” facilities hoping all people saw me as a person and not just Black. Yes whites have been doing thes things for years and thats wonderful. Most Black don’t sit around saying their sick and tired of hearing about the things Whites do with such anger makes me think some hate the progress or resent it. The internet is a wonderful tool if it offends we I can skip it.
MLK’s dream should be the dream of every true American.
Maybe someday we can live in a world where skin color doesn’t matter, where everyone is treated equally, where the government no longer shows favoritism based on race and where people are judged on their own individual character and accomplishments instead of which special interest group they are seen to represent.

Hey, the article posted was about black women! But, yes, I agree 100% — let’s just abolish welfare for everyone — white, black, Hispanic, and muslims, too! I’m all for it.
I would like to remind you, though. that we don’t see white “ghettos.” WE do, though, see entire inner cities FULL of African americans, the majority on welfare and other assistance.
Peripheral vision BTT
“Call me a racist but whenever I see a black doctor...lawyer...cop...fireman...or pilot,I wonder to myself qualified,or affirmative action?.”
I think most people do. Including a lot of blacks too I bet!
On the other hand, I don’t think twice if a person is East Indian, Asian, or one of a whole bunch of other cultures. Those folks are like everybody else: no special considerations for anything except merit.
