What began as a startling NAACP suit accusing US Airways Group Inc. of discriminating against its African American employees at Philadelphia International Airport has ended with a settlement and a pledge by the airport's largest carrier to strengthen workplace diversity.
On the matter of the monetary terms and whether the three former US Airways employees named as plaintiffs in January's federal class-action suit would get - or even want - their old jobs back, no one would say.

Greedy pigs, in the middle of this economic mess too. Should have fought it in a court of law. This is another reason businesses have left this country.

“Racism” is big business.

Just shows why there is little hope of recovery when these corps fold like a cheap suit to the “you know whos”.

Why do we allow these race hustlers to continue their extortion racket unabated?

Racism is big business.
Same/similar thing just happened last year with Kodak ..."Kodak Agrees to Settle Bias Lawsuit
"Eastman Kodak Co. has agreed to a $21.4 million settlement with a group of African-American employees
who contend the company discriminated against them in its pay, promotion, job assignment and layoff practices."
Believe me, there was no workplace more PC than Kodak.

Besides the cost of the settlement (to be born by their customers), these lawsuits basically exclude whites from jobs at not just the “host”, but other companies that see the writing on the wall and scramble to get their token count up. The threat of litigation has forced ALL companies (not just the gubmint, or those with gubmint contracts) to adopt preferential hiring policies complete with quotas.
I could care less if every company in this country went out of business today; we’d start afresh with small businesses, which don’t have “the fat” to keep on useless tokens hired for their race and/or gender...
The ‘shakedowns’ continue. NAACP, a stinking shadow of what it once was.

Extortion. The race industry at work.
Just ask Jesse Jackson. That is what he has been doing for years.
