Not only is the quality of the planes suffering from diversity but the Air Traffic Controller competency is as well. A few years back, the Obama administration concluded that too many controllers were white males. So they replaced the screening process with a questionnaire that asked, among other things, what sports do you play.

If your bucket list requires air travel, do it in the next few years while the legacy planes and air traffic controllers are still around. Fly first world foreign airlines if possible.

Yep, the pictures say it all. Diverse management people watching as old white guy attempts to put the pieces back together again. Diverse woman being taught to use a power drill for the first time by a white bloke who has been using them since he was ten and considers electronics to be a hobby.

As I understand it, those two Boeing planes that crashed were using a system programmed on the cheap by Hendudes in India.

As Horace Walpole said: “The world is a comedy to those that think; a tragedy to those that feel.”

Do you remember Tucker’s take on air traffic control?

We live in an Idiocracy at this point. Literally!

As Pierce frequently argued, in addition to the malevolent operations of the long-time enemy of the men of the West, Euro-descended peoples must face the sad, unpleasant truth of their own contribution to the difficulties in which they presently find themselves — or at least that majority of their kin who may properly be tarred with the epithet, the “blank-o Blancos.” To wit in the present context, the Carlson report that you linked on the shenanigans involved in re-engineering the air-traffic controller test to suit diversity (e.g., anti-White) targets boasts fewer than 25K views and 125 comments some 18 months after airing, whereas the Beyonce / Jay Z “Apes**t” music video (referenced elsewhere in a post here on the NA site) had over 200M views a week or so ago.… Read more »

Music is the perfect illustration what makes “us” different from “them”. The fact that this German pianist has almost a million subscribers at least gives me some hope.

And yes, I remember that Beyonce clip, and others such as Nicki Minay. It reminds me of what the great Islamic scholar Ibn Khaldun from the 14th century wrote about the POC barbarians in his Muqaddimah.

“We have seen that Negroes are in general characterized by levity [Defined as: behaviour intended to be amusing and not being serious], excitability, and great emotionalism. They are found eager to dance whenever they hear a melody. They are everywhere described as stupid.”

It has been reported that this is the same design team as the one responsible for the Florida International University pedestrian bridge which collapsed on March 15, 2018.

You’ll notice that when things fail to meet their objectives such as the Boeing Starliner flying in to the wrong orbit we never see a picture of the technical team since people would see it and reach the “wrong” conclusions about diversity. Had the Starliner succeeded no doubt we would have been showered with pictures of the “diverse” team, told how the mission was only made possible with racial diversity and a black woman would be the spokesperson. When the pedestrian bridge at Florida International U was built there were celebratory articles about how Hispanic females designed and led the project. But when the bridge collapsed shortly thereafter all of the photos of the team disappeared and the collapse was dismissed as just one of those darned things. Fortunately alternative… Read more »
