Diversity hiring has gone out of control

The Federal Aviation Administration recently faced intense backlash after its “diversity and inclusion” recruitment efforts surfaced online. 

Among the many demographics the FAA is currently recruiting, the organization actively seeks people with severe physical and mental disabilities to join its ranks. 

“Targeted disabilities are those disabilities that the Federal government, as a matter of policy, has identified for special emphasis in recruitment and hiring,” the FAA says. “They include hearing, vision, missing extremities, partial paralysis, complete paralysis, epilepsy, severe intellectual disability, psychiatric disability and dwarfism.”

At first glance, the FAA’s new diversity initiative seems absolutely deranged. However, anyone who has attended a university or worked in a corporate setting in the past few years likely would not be surprised. Diversity, equity, and inclusion ideology has engulfed virtually every major institution of American society, tossing aside qualifications and merit in favor of so-called “equity.”


Furthermore, more “benign” forms of affirmation, such as outreach efforts, have been replaced by hard quotas. In 2021, United Airlines faced backlash over setting a goal of enrolling a pilot-training class composed of 50% women and minorities.

As the mounting backlash against DEI continues, will institutions continue the quest for equal outcomes, even at the expense of becoming less safe and competent? Is it worth making Americans more suspicious and resentful of each other?
