Divided Airlines: United Says Half Their New Pilots Will Be Women or Racial Minorities

United Airlines is reaffirming their commitment to safety wokeness by pledging that over the next 10 years, at least half of the new pilots they train will be either women or racial minorities.

In an effort to promote “diversity” at the expense of simply letting the most qualified person fly the plane that’s carting dozens to hundreds of human beings at tens of thousands of feet in the air, the company tweeted, “Our flight deck should reflect the diverse group of people on board our planes every day. That’s why we plan for 50% of the 5,000 pilots we train in the next decade to be women or people of color.”

The airline says they're working to ensure that half of the 5,000 pilots they train between now and 2030 will be women or minorities.

Twitter was quick to point out that when it comes to planting their butts in a too-small seat and paying hundreds of dollars to be flown to their destination, they don’t much care who’s flying the plane – only that they’re qualified to get their passengers from A to B as safely as possible.

Next step: biodegradable floatation devices made from hemp and free hugs.

Can't say they'll help you in a crash, but at least you'll feel at one with humanity as you drown.
