This is likely to get some rage going, but it needs to be asked.
At ORD, where I 'hang out' and visit airplanes regularily, I have noticed a startling trend. 49 out of 50 United Airlines pilots are caucasian. Most other airlines seem the same. I have toured just under a hundred aircraft and met only one black captain (excuse me for not being politically correct, but to me 'white' and 'caucasion'; 'black' and 'african american' are the same)... Anyway, the black captain was as friendly as can be, and I can't imagine why he wouldn't be - so what's afoot? Are the airlines prejudice? Are there just no black people applying for flying? Is it just United that has albino cockpits?
