Boeing CEO Pledges a 20 Percent Increase in Black Employees

Boeing CEO Pledges a 20 Percent Increase in Black Employees, by Steve Sailer.

From the New York Post:

Boeing is seeking to increase black US employees throughout the company by 20 percent and mandate benchmarks for hiring people of color, Chief Executive Dave Calhoun told employees in a memo on Friday reviewed by Reuters.

Sailer:

Like the Soviet Union had political cadres to watch over everybody who actually knew what they were doing on the job.

If Nike were to pledge to boost their employment of blacks by 20%, well … nobody cares about sneaker safety … But doesn’t Boeing make products that we risk our lives riding in?

Sailer’s commenter JimB:

You know and I know that unless the best engineering talent, white or whatever, swears allegiance to BLM, the black Human Resources department at Boeing won’t hire them.

And that’s bad news, because the best aeronautical and electrical engineers are kind of truthful and kind of Aspergery and often politically conservative — and they like pointing out that they are smarter than you.

So Boeing will lard up on feminized politically correct employees who won’t buck management when bad engineering decisions get made.

Sailer again:

It’s like the first Space Shuttle commission hearings. It’s not that Richard Feynman single-handedly figured out by himself why the Challenger exploded by dunking an O-ring in a glass of ice water. The guys in short-sleeve shirts with pocket protectors knew it all along, but they figured the suits would cover it up. So they went through the list of commissioners and picked Feynman as the guy who could get their message across.

How a society dumbs down and becomes poorer.
