FAA Changes Hiring Practices for Air Traffic Controllers Ignoring Qualified Students and Vets

John Ferrugia and Catherine Shelley, ABC 7 (Denver), June 3, 2014

Thousands of potential FAA air traffic control trainees, with College Initiative Training (CTI) degrees or previous military experience, have been told by the federal agency they are no longer eligible for job interviews. Instead, the FAA has decided to accept less qualified applicants, apparently to satisfy concerns that the agency needs a more diverse workforce.

More than 25 members of Congress have expressed concern with the new hiring process for air traffic controllers rolled out by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) earlier this year. In a letter to the head of the FAA, members of Congress stated “it is apparent to us there is a lack of transparency in the FAA’s interim revised hiring process.”

“We were told through the FAA, if you want to be a controller you need to go through one of our CTI-approved programs,” said CTI graduate Ryan Meryhew.

Thirty-six schools nationwide carry the distinction of having an FAA-approved program for air traffic controllers by offering a CTI degree. {snip}

These are multi-year programs with top-notch simulators and air traffic control programs designed to train students to take the initial air traffic control test called the AT-SAT, which is required by the FAA to begin advanced training at the FAA academy.

“In school I did very well. I graduated with a 3.8 GPA. I passed the AT-SAT exam with a 99.5 percent, a near perfect score on the test that the FAA said you’ve got to pass,” said Meryhew. “I knew I had a passion for the position. It’s something that I wanted to do. I dedicated and put everything I had into the program.”

In the past, Ryan Meryhew would have been considered “highly qualified” for the FAA’s air traffic control program, and like veterans who had military traffic control experience, he would have been given preference in the hiring process.

But suddenly, earlier this year, thousands of students like Ryan were told they were no longer eligible to proceed with the application process. In February, the FAA ignored the pool of applicants waiting to be interviewed for air traffic control positions who had already graduated from school and passed the AT-SAT exam.

Priority for veterans and CTI graduates was no longer given. Instead, anyone interested in becoming an air traffic controller would be part of the same pool of applicants–a combination of “off the street hires” and those with specialized education or prior experience.

The initial hurdle for all applicants was based solely on a new, online biographical questionnaire that gave test takers instant results.

“It didn’t ask me anything about my college experience, my grades, my scores, (and) my ability for the actual job. It asked me what sports I played in high school. What was my least favorite subject in high school. Nothing related to aviation,” remembered Meryhew.

“I get a big red ‘X’ when I applied saying I’m not qualified, but no reason why,” explained Annie Keinholz. “Biographically ineligible.”

Annie Keinholz, a pilot, finished near the top of her class at Aims Community College and scored a 93 percent on the AT-SAT before the FAA made changes to the hiring process. Now, Keinholz is considered biographically ineligible, and unable to re-take the AT-SAT exam that she previously passed.

She told CALL7 Investigator John Ferrugia she does not know what biographically ineligible means. She contacted the FAA for information on what caused her to fail the questionnaire, but has yet to receive an answer.

“Right now I still feel angry . . . I feel like I wasted three years of my life. I followed the rules, and my faith in the government has just gone downhill,” said Keinholz.

Professor Kevin Kuhlmann, a retired military pilot who teaches in the CTI program at Metro State said, “Done deal. There’s nothing you can do about it.”


Kuhlmann argues, as does the Association of CTI schools, that the FAA is taking less qualified applicants that have no clear aptitude for the job. In the end, they say, the policy will will cost taxpayers millions.

Kuhlmann reasoned that because students have already paid for their own initial training by attending schools like Metro State, they will have “less time at the facility, less per diem. They’re not on the payroll for those six weeks. They’re not put up in a hotel for those six weeks.”


No one that the CALL7 Investigators spoke with about the hiring changes knew why the FAA set aside those who were proven to be successful in favor of taking a chance on hires off the street.

“I believe that the FAA’s motivation is to gain more diversity in the hiring pool,” said Kuhlmann. “But they won’t say it in that way. They will not say it. Even on the teleconference. They’ll just say, ‘We’ve engineered the biographical questionnaire in a way that we think will promote diversity.'”

However, if that is the case, a 2013 FAA report contradicts that position by stating, “It is clear that the 36 academic institutions helped introduce the air traffic control profession to minorities who may have not been familiar with jobs and opportunities that the field of aviation represents.”

The FAA declined to be interviewed. Instead, FAA management crafted a general statement that clearly avoided answering any of Ferrugia’s questions.


FAA Statement:

In 2013, the FAA reviewed the end-to-end process of hiring and assigning air traffic control specialists. As a result, in order to recruit a better qualified candidate and reduce costs associated with testing and training, the FAA chose to make several improvements to the way it selects, trains, and assigns air traffic controllers. Improvements were made to enhance decision making and increase objectivity in the assessment of candidates. The selection process for new air traffic controllers was very competitive. In the course of two weeks, we received over 28,000 applications for 1,700 positions. We expect to hire additional controllers next year and have encouraged those not selected to reapply then. On background, we provided the following information: Completing coursework at a CTI school does not guarantee employment with the FAA. However, the agency considers education and aviation related experience in the hiring process. The biographical assessment measures air traffic control specialist job applicant characteristics that have been shown empirically to predict success as an air traffic controller in the FAA. These characteristics include factors such as prior general and air traffic control-specific work experience, education and training, work habits, academic and other achievements, and life experiences among other factors. The biographical assessment was independently validated by outside experts. The AT-SAT is an aptitude test of cognitive abilities and skills. The biographical assessment serves as an initial qualifier in this process before applicants take the AT-SAT test. Finally we explained all new air traffic control specialists undergo rigorous training and must demonstrate proficiency before they are able to work traffic by themselves. The training includes classroom work and on-the-job training with a certified controller. Additionally, all radar controllers and many tower controllers undergo simulator training as part of the training process.

    Why didn’t the FAA think of this sooner? The white male has become a castrated serf who deserves no employment. The white cuckold doesn’t even have the initiative to go after the careers of those who have made this policy legitimate.

    Once again, “they” are hiding behind the name of the organization. They have nothing to fear.

    • Ted Cunterblast

      It’s probably more than just the careers they should go after.

      • D.B. Cooper

        It’s already been proven that ruining the lives of those who put diversity first for their own personal gain will work! Remember this tool?

          Isn’t he an evil white oppressor who was always falsely prosecuting blacks when white woman would lie about being raped?

          He looks like Bill Clinton’s bastard son.

        • John R

          Yes, Mike NiPhong (Or was it My Dong?). Yes, he prosecuted (persecuted) those young Duke boys for the supposed rape of that black crack whore dancer they hired. He did it because he was running for DA and needed to get the black vote in Durham. I’ll give him one thing: He certainly knew the psychology of blacks and how hateful and racist they really are. He won his election. Now, if it were me, I would still have prosecuted the Duke boys-for felony bad taste! Yuck!

          • Puggg

            I read somewhere that they ordered white strippers but the agency (if you want to call it that) sent them Crystal Mangum, and they didn’t want to see her strip, who would? So they told her to leave, she got made and made up a rape story.

          • John R

            I know. I was kind of being a wise guy. My Bad!

        • Guest

          If I recall correctly, Nifong was in a close race in the Democrat primary for district attorney. He evidently decided that to win, he needed to make the most of the black vote. And what better way to do that than to attempt to lynch some “privileged” white college students?

      Safety, …should be their first concern!
      And if the trained rural white war veterans puts their life on the line for their countrymen fighting overseas, and they qualify for the job…he should get first crack at these air traffic control positions if so desired. The hell with this diversity BS.

      • cherrie greenbaum123

        The government doesn’t give a f_ _ k about safety. The government, most especially under Obomba, has Affirmative Action as their primary objective. White Genocide is number two for them. Everything is going exactly as planned.

        • Hallie Eva

          Are the Air Force One pilots black GED or high skoo grad-u-ates with lots of “life experience?”
          Or trained, skills tested pilots with military flying experience?

          • Erasmus

            Yup. Picture Rachel Jeantel that 300 pound 85-IQ slab of ghetto attitude controlling traffic or piloting a plane. “Scuse me, I gots ta eat. It’s time fo’ mah two o’clock bag of whoppers.”

        • Bon, From the Land of Babble

          Sorry, disagree. White genocide is number one.

          Affirmative Action is a means to achieve that goal.

      • Erasmus

        $20 drachmas says Taki runs with this story, and other conservative pundits, if they’re smart, will do the same. It has legs. No one wants to fly in a tin can containing thousands of gallons high explosive fuel directed by a bunch of ghetto mamas or greaseritos in the control tower.

        I was thinking the same thing…I bet if you’re a Muslim male between the ages of 18 to 45 with bomb-making experience and Al Quaida-approved references, they’ll move you to the front of the line.

    • Erasmus

      Someone needs to prod the republicans to life. THIS is an issue they can run with. Even poverty pimps like Je$$e Jack$on and Al “Tawana Brawley” $harpton don’t want to fly with the likes of Trayvon Martin or Rachel Jeantel in the control tower.

      It’s called reverse discrimination and blacks have been salivating for this moment, when whites get corn holed in the hiring process for fifty years.

      • bilderbuster

        They haven’t just been waiting and salivating.
        They have been beating and corn holing then murdering Whites for decades.
        They can’t hide it and deny it’s happening even with media cover anymore so when caught they give a laugh and deny it anyways and then get back to doing it again.

      • Jacobite2

    New Biographical Preferences for FAA hiring;

    Must have a first name such as: LaQuisha, LaShonda, Tyrone, Jamal, Tyrese, De’Marquius, Dashante, Trey, etc.

    Must have a last name such as: Washington, Jones, Brown, Jefferson, Johnson, Jackson, Wilson, Smith, Muhammad or “X”.

    Must have played basketball in high school, (need not have graduated), or football.

    Most come from a single-parent welfare family, not know who your father is or if you know him, he is currently incarcerated.

    Diversity is far more important in the Obama-nation than air safety or the lives of airline passengers.

    She told CALL7 Investigator John Ferrugia she does not know what biographically ineligible means….

    Of course she does. It means Whites need not apply. Let us see how long this nonsense lasts after we start hearing reports of near misses of planes colliding in mid-air, runway accidents, or just plain old crashes just because these nutters wanted more brown skinned people in these vital positions. Thank goodness I don’t fly and never plan to.

    • JSS

      The sad fact is when planes start colliding the media and FAA will likely blame some White male scapegoat like a pilot or mechanic to cover their diversity employees incompetency.

    • rightrightright

      An open opportunity for some air traffic jihad.

    • Maybe this is part of the long range plan to federalize the entire airline industry.
      I mean, the airline companies will probably go in the red necause of this, then need a 10 billion dollar bailout from feds, Defacto way of saying “we own you”…

    • bilderbuster

      The new non White hires are covered there too.
      If the pilot is White (and the pilot will be White) the FAA will then blame everything that happens on “Pilot Error”.

    “Right now I still feel angry . . . I feel like I wasted three years of my life. I followed the rules, and my faith in the government has just gone downhill,” said Keinholz.

    Keinholz just a got a good whiff of Amurrika. Following the rules just makes you a sucker if your a White Amurrikan. Faith in government? This kind of naïvety is maddening. Do this person think any of our elected “public servants” actually follow the laws they right and enforce? No those laws are only for gullible Whites and they are designed to disenfranchise good natured trusting White citizens like Keinholz.

    • AndrewInterrupted

      “…I get a big red ‘X’ when I applied saying I’m not qualified, but no reason why,” explained Annie Keinholz. “Biographically ineligible…”

      “Biographically ineligible” was probably the compromise after 100 anti-white think tank gatherings in DC. I’m sure they wanted to use more direct quota language like: “demographically ineligible”, but some lawyer (and member of the tribe presumably) probably interjected and suggested such language would lead to a U.S. Supreme Court case and precedent.

      Reverse discrimination to an old white guy like myself is very old news. I’ve been a witness and recipient of it since the mid-1980s, when I was excluded at Duke Power during an AA hiring event. It’s funny to see white women finally feeling the sting. The genuine indignation, that if they had just followed the bogus war-on-women talking point that “It would never happen to them”.

      Well, guess what honey, you just found out you were a ‘useful idiot’. Now wipe those tears and join your race. There’s no crying in war!

  • How much more proof do you need that the federal government has declared war on the white race? How much more will it take, white boy (as my former university president used to call whites), to get you to take action?
    Did you sit there and pay your taxes to this criminal regime on April 15? Shame on you.
    I’m not going to say in public what I’m doing to sabotage the sytem, but I will say that if the government declares war on me, I’m declaring war on it, a stealth, silent war. I have no obligation to obey ANY law or government that targets me and my race.
    Neither do you.

    I overheard two black men at the gym today, both teachers, looked to be around 45 or 50 years old. One said to the other how he’ll be able to retire in two years. The other one said that there will always be teaching jobs for black men. My sister is a licensed teacher, unemployed for about 8 years. My brother was a physics major, licensed electrician, unemployed for over two years. When he asked why he didn’t get the last contract he put in a bid for, the reply was “You’re the wrong color.”

    If Im not mistaken being an air traffic controller requires a security clearance. I know we will never see comparisons any time soon but I would like to see how much more leniency blacks get on their applications for a clearance then Whites. Having filled out a few applications myself I can say that the forms require a level of literacy and attention to detail that I know many blacks just don’t possess.

    More mid-air collisions and increased, catastrophic plan crashes due to human error are merely small prices to pay to increase diversity in the air control tower.

    Between the groping and irradiating by the TSA, taking off my shoes, having my cosmetics and personal items confiscated and getting barked at by flight attendants while sitting in a tiny, cramped, filthy airline seat that I paid an arm and leg for gives me one more reason NOT to fly.

        As a white person, there is probably no worse person to have as a boss than a black woman. Stupid, opinionated, self-important, irrational, moody, bitchy, and ill tempered.

        For years they have been lumping minorities and women together, and white women have been looking at each other and saying, ‘Who, us?” Then when the minority discrimination hit them, they said,. “oh well, that explains it.” and never asked any more questions. White women have been victimized twice, first by minorities, then by officials who lumped us in with minorities and turned our men away from us, thinking we were playing victim too. We were victims but most of us didn’t look closely enough to realize it wasn’t white males, it was minorities of both genders sticking it to us.

        • cherrie greenbaum123

To me they are to be pitied, although also tolerated as much if not more than the disconnected negro.

      White men in toto are only 1/3 of the population, and that percent is skewed toward the elderly. Among those under 30, it is probably about 1/4. This means that the Diversityites must start fighting with each other for the jobbage.

      Also, the phrase, “life experience” translates to Diversity policies will be the controlling factor in who is hired.

    “Instead, the FAA has decided to accept less qualified applicants, apparently to satisfy concerns that the agency needs a more diverse workforce.”

    This is happening everywhere. Pressure is being applied against private enterprise and policy is being changed if the jobs are government controlled.

    The community organizer and his Old Bud, Holder, are putting in their people everywhere they have clout to change hiring practices. None of them can qualify so qualifications have been changed.

    It isn’t necessary to say there is going to be some gross screw ups in air traffic control, because that’s pretty obvious to everybody.

    I quit flying when the pat downs started, but had intended to make an exception if I had to get somewhere in a hurry. But not now. There’s nothing that’s going to be such a dire emergency that I’ll throw caution to the winds by flying on an aircraft controlled by black dimwits. No way.

    “The biographical assessment serves as an initial qualifier in this process before applicants take the AT-SAT test.”

    That means, white people need not apply. How can anyone spin it any other way? Unless it means white people and someone else too.

  • AndrewInterrupted

    This is what I wrote concerning the Bermudez article in Freeport, NY a few days ago:

    “….Believe it or not, the EEOC and the DOL literally removed the “most qualified” metric from the American employment lexicon. Now there is only “qualified” and “unqualified”. This was done to move more diversity darlings past whites. “Most qualified” kept coming up white. Can’t have that.

    The only thing that will save this guy on appeal is if NY State law has some nuance that his legal team can exploit. Or maybe his union had some safeguards built in. Otherwise he will lose. The corrupt mayor lowered the tenure requirement to meet “qualified”. Bermudez does not have to be “most qualified” if he’s part of a “protected group”, which he is. “Protected group” is EEOC speak for anti-white…”

    The same rule structure applies here. The minority occupation government has long since removed the “most” language from “qualified”. It’s a known fact at federal agencies and contractors–and now corporations. All very incremental, Saul Alinksy tactics. There is only “qualified” and “unqualified”. This makes it much easier to slip diversity darlings past the white people. Saw it every day at the federal contractor where I worked for 10 years.

    • LHathaway

      “Protected group” is EEOC speak for anti-white…”

      That should read ‘protected groups is EEOC speak for non-white’?

      • AndrewInterrupted

        That would be too kind. They are engaged in anti-white behavior on an institutional level. The EEOC are actually Girl Scouts compared to the OFCCP. The Office of Federal Contracts Compliance is anti-white–on steroids. They make the EEOC haters shake in their boots.

          I think riding next to someone on a greyhound bus who smells bad is torture. The alternative is not great.

          • Malgus

            I rode a greyhound bus. Once. I was 18 and on my way home from Ft. Benning. Some nasty negro female sat next to me with her chillin. The chillin filled his diaper and then the negro female proceeded to change the thing’s diaper not in the bathroom, but on the seat right next to me…. (even at the range of 30 years, you should see the disgust on my face at the memory of that…).

            Later on, she fell asleep leaning against my shoulder. Kept pushing her away, but she kept rolling back. When I got home and got my uniform off, I found a grease stain on my left shoulder that would NOT come out… had to buy a new Class A jacket.

            And, just to add insult to injury, my duffel bag was stolen at the bus terminal. Lost a very nice black Harley Davidson leather motorcycle jacket, along with most of my possessions… had to buy new of just about everything. The greyhound people were “unsympathetic” to my plight…

            First, last and only time I ever rode a greyhound bus. Never again. I will walk before I get on one of those things again.

            However, a train is very nice, especially if you flip for first class and a sleeper…

          • Who Me?

            The torture of spending hours on a Greyhound bus next to someone who smells bad really IS somewhere past uncomfortable. However, you’ll probably arrive at your destination alive. Being groped, x-rayed, crammed onto an airplane next to someone who smells bad, and then being in a mid-air collision, is NOT going to get you anywhere but the morgue.

I’d rather drive or take a train. However, those who cannot be named are getting around to subjecting all travelers to this indignity. Their real goal is to make travel impossible for us, just like the old Soviet Union.

      • Hallie Eva

        Our country was terrorized on 9-11 by Muslim invaders in highjacked airliners. Many died as a result of our unwillingness to maintain adequate vigilance on our borders. The jihadists were able to enter and leave our country without a hitch, sign on for rudimentary flying lessons.
        As a result of this incursion, when one flies, passengers are subjected to an intrusive, groping search, machines image our bodies, our carry on bags are searched. 80 year old women and babies in diapers are not excluded.
        Ironically, those able to refuse groping and searching are Muzzies. Reasons cited: for a female, modesty forbids bare skin visibility by strangers, least of all, groping of her body.
        But, my personal favorite, Muslims’ civil rights. They are protected by our upside down laws from “racial profiling.”

    When Reagan fired the traffic controllers the local afrocentric ‘community house’ had advertisements up for ‘becoming an air traffic controller’.

    When will funding community houses of any kind for neighborhoods that are still mostly white be a priority – let alone Eurocentric ones, with photos of great whites on all the walls and a white nationalist theme and curriculum for their after-school programs?

  • Malgus

    I confess that I do not know much about Air Traffic Controlling, except that the job probably requires intelligence, exceptional mental stamina, the ability to think quickly and make the correct decision on the spot. After all, they’re dealing with hundreds of planes in the air at any given time.

    I think that if you cannot do these things, then people will die. I think if I had to describe this job to someone who does not know what an Air Traffic Controller is, it would be something like juggling flaming chainsaws. In the dark. Standing on an upsidown bucket. On one foot. For 12 hours.

    Okay, maybe not that challenging, but if an air traffic controller screws up, then people do die. Planes hit the ground, or each other, lots of flames and itty bitty pieces of plane falling out of the sky… that sort of thing.

    All of which is exactly why the hiring process should be a pure meritocracy. The last thing I want to think about is Bonqueesha in a pair of flip-flops in the tower “directing” the airplane I am on – while simultaneously talking wiff her Baby Daddy on dat free Obamaphone, reading “PHAT BEATS YO!” magazine, eating Ho Ho’s and Koolaid… or Purple Drank…

    What could possibly go wrong? For 50 years blacks have been hired as school teachers and….oh,…never mind…..

    So, there will be fewer qualified to direct the planes at the airports. Since most passengers on planes are white, anyway, so what if there are collisions in the air? It’s just more reparations! The govt. has long ignored the best qualified candidates in other categories of work. Why not this one?
    Bottom line, the Obama Administration hates whites and will allow incompetents to steer the planes in crowded airports. The result will be murder of passengers, but mostly white victims, so the Obama crowd can shrug it off.

    I don’t fly any more.

    While in the US Army, I flew as a passenger in numerous helicopters, jets, prop planes and so forth. Everything but gliders. I had no fear of any of that.

    But, now, I don’t fly.

    As a leader of a group, I’m expected to go on all expense paid business trips to Hawaii and other exotic places, and I refuse to go.

    The reason is that if I would go on these business trips, my assistant (a beautiful woman) would be expected to go with me. And if a TSA goon would start to feel her up, my vision would go blurry, I would start laughing hysterically, and I would attack the goon that would be groping my assistant. And I would be hauled off to jail. I have no control over my feelings in cases like this, and I know it.

    I can’t understand why any rational person would go through a TSA checkpoint unless it were absolutely necessary.

    And now, they’re going to put incompetent people in charge of the air traffic control system, making the system even worse.

    Allow me to chime-in on this: all this “reverse racism” is occurring because most of you out there spend more time pounding a keyboard than pounding the heads of your elected officials.

    This is a warning: if you don’t “clean-sweep” the rodents out of Congress, there’s no chance you’ll restore your Constitutional rights and prevent debacles such as what the FAA (and other agencies) is doing.

    ‘Blogging, texting, and submitting commentary to sites like this amount to little more than a feel-good salve after you’ve been scorched with a blow-torch. All you’re doing is complaining amongst yourselves, and blowing hot air. Why? Because believe it or not, your “enemy” is the uninformed neighbor that hasn’t got a clue what is at stake.

    Many Black thinkers believe a “nuclear winter” will befall the Black community very soon. And there stands a good chance that vortex will envelop many in the White community as well. I personallybelieve the “Pied Piper” of White decline was that obnoxious Jay Carney.

      Hello flytetym,

      I’m the president of a Union, and the president of a company. I know many hundreds of the Caucasian folks who, as you say, are the “uninformed neighbor” that is our “enemy”. Their mind will only be changed when the bad times come, and the groups of marauding Africans are in the street in front of their home.

      Speaking to them and stating facts to them just makes them angry (and more fixed in their strange mental condition). The propaganda system in the USA is beyond comprehension. Putin said that it’s the best he’s ever seen.

      I’ve worked in the television broadcasting business for forty years, working on national shows such as Mr. Rogers Neighborhood, National Geographic, and on news shows. The “look” of the actors, the words they speak, their gestures, the staging, is all part of the propaganda system.

      At one station, a woman is paid over a hundred thousand dollars a year to watch the station’s output on a TV set with sound muted. She is watching to make sure the visual images present the proper propaganda message.

      News programs are carefully scripted to present the proper propaganda message. Modern news readers know nothing about the news, they are merely actors. The script is prepared at central locations in the USA, and the news readers must not deviate from the script. The teleprompter tells them when to smile, when to look concerned and so forth. Of course, the news is filtered to present the proper propaganda message.

      My suggestion is to prepare for the coming bad times. Guns, ammo, food, water, matches, and a box trap. The box trap is to catch a rabbit to cook over an open fire in your driveway. A good day will be when you catch a rabbit. A bad day will be when you don’t catch a rabbit. We all know what the guns and ammo are for.

      Thank you,

          Hello flitetym,

          On the radio station that I listen to in Pittsburgh PA, the conservative hosts have started to talk more about sports and trying to do some light comedy. About half of the conservative hosts have been removed.

          Seems like the station management has told them to lighten up or leave.

          As you say, “the “silencing of those opposed to government treachery” is on, full steam ahead”.

          For now, worse is better. The quicker we move into the bad times, the stronger we are. Right now, we have millions of veterans who will probably be on our side. However, at my last trip to the VA, a cute young woman psychiatrist met with me. She was trying to get me to say that I have nightmares and so forth because of my military service. If I had succumbed to her manipulations, then they could declare me as unstable, and get a court order to come and confiscate my gun and ammo.

          Veterans should be aware of such things, so they can protect themselves.

          Hello r j p,

          Getting a job on a television show is largely a matter of luck. However, there’s usually some of “who you know” or “who you’re related to” or “who you look like” thrown in.

          I’m sorry your father didn’t get the job, but it was probably not because of any shortcoming in your father.

          I’ve been very lucky in life. I just happened to be in the right place at the right time when someone looked around and said, “How about that guy?”. And they picked me for some reason. Maybe because I was the right height, maybe because I looked like someone they knew in an earlier time.

          I worked on the first Mr. Rogers Neighborhood show, the last one, and most of ones in-between. I worked with David Newell for decades. Even today, after the show has not been recorded since 2003, David Newell is still paid to do personal appearances.

      They will do what they always do at federal contractors and agencies: they will overstaff. If the white guy was responsible for 3 runways, three black women will be responsible for one each. The taxpayers will pay three times as much for the same result. Which is a win/win for the minority occupation government, since tax dollars largely come from white people. But, that extra cash will come in the form of a bail-out or “cash infusion” so as not reveal their labor waste/fraud intentions (not to mention their anti-white sentiments).

    We are on our way to Turd World status, at an increasing pace. I figure we are about 2.5+ right now.

    I knew when Obama got elected that the anti-white discrimination from the federal government would only get worse. But remember, Obama is the symptom, not the disease.

    simple, your answers for the new “biographical application” should be basketball, and for least favorite subjects , maf, english, science. just make your application as blak as possible.

  • Bill E. BOBB

    this is probably worse than discovering your new doctor is blak, at least you have the option to walk out of the exam room.

    Good post.

    This is why I noted earlier that I’m reluctant to use this story as proof of anti-White discrimination. It seems to be less about race than cost-cutting.

    • Puggg

      Why can’t it be both? If people have the opportunity to kill two birds with one stone, they will. Make air traffic controllers both more diverse and cutting costs. Or maybe diversity is just the convenient front for cost cutting.

      If the union of air traffic controllers can’t strike, then I don’t see how strong the union could be or how much it could do for its members, even if all of its membership were the “strong union leader types.” Maybe the union has leverage in that it can try blue flu days, and air traffic controllers having a blue flu on one day would wreak a lot of havoc.

      And if they are cutting employee and labor costs, I don’t think they’re cutting the budget, in fact it’s probably going up up and away. Where’s all that money going? Supervisor and bureaucrat bonuses? Frivolous expenses?

      • DaveMed

        It certainly could be both, and I searched the articles about this multiple times for clear indications that race played a role.

        And the biographical test would be a perfect way to sneak in the “diversity” agenda.

        But I can’t spread this story as an illustration of anti-White bias, because there really is no proof. Either race was irrelevant, or the FAA is really good at hiding its tracks.

    Uh … you haven’t seen the MegaBus pick-up spots in Chicago.

  • gah

    We already have unqualified black doctors and teachers, so it should come as no surprise that we will now have unqualified blacks as air traffic controllers.

    Day after day this administration is rewriting regulations, redesigning hiring policies and procedures, changing school curriculums, changing who gets promoted and why, changing agency mission statements, opening offices within agencies to make sure the correct political line is being followed, and so on and so on… Most of us don’t know about it and don’t hear about it, but our government is being fundamentally changed to be ever more anti-white.

    I’m not a Republican, but at least a Republican administration would hold things at the status quo.

    my faith in the government has just gone downhill,” said Keinholz.
    Your faith in the government? What planet are you from? where have you lived for the past decade? This is exactly what the hostile elites have planned for us. First dispossession, then replacement and total marginalization. What puzzles me most is that there is no real reaction from the American people (outside some websites). Is the end near? Has everybody drunk cool aid? It is stunning how easily they achieved this. On top of this, just to add the necessary humiliation we are forced to celebrate and finance our own downfall and demise of our race and civilization

    >>>It didn’t ask me anything about my college experience, my grades, my scores, (and) my ability for the actual job.

    Because to build up a list of accomplishments in those areas is too “white.”

    Then the FAA or Federal African-American should publish the independent biographical evaluation study. If experts agree, produce the data!

    It’s “Biologically ineligible” and everyone knows it.
    They’re laughing at us but dead serious with their obvious intention.

    I got into an argument on Facebook recently with some 20-something brainwashed white kids. They kept telling me about “Male Privilege” and “White Privilege”. I should have sent them this. I backed out of the argument eventually, but not before posting Jared Taylor’s video on “White Privilege”. My main opponent called Taylor a “White Supremacist”, but his arguments died down after that. I’m not sure if he even watched that video. Gosh, I can’t stand people my age sometimes!

    This is unbelievable and a travesty. Our daughter just got her Aeronautics/Air Traffic Control degree last month. The FAA should have given 4 years notice of their anticipated hiring changes. At least give the students a chance to spend thousands of hours and thousands of dollars pursuing a degree in something that will actually pay off for them.

  • Bootlip

    I can see the aftermath of this cross eyed AA decision. Prince Obunghole just graduated the hood rats into the wonderful world of terrorism. The airports will resemble check day at the welfare office.
