On Mother’s Day of this year, Alaska Airlines Flight 361 featured its first-ever flight flown by two black women, Mallory Cave and Tara Wright.

“Finally, you’re sharing a pretty interesting piece of Alaska Airlines history this morning,” Wright announced to the passengers. “You’ll be piloted by two female African-American pilots for the first time in the airline’s history.”

    Sorry but what is this for strange news.
    2 Black pilots is suddenly front page news.
    We also don’t bring it as a news if there are 2 white pilots on a flight.

    How can the flight cabin be diverse when the flight crew is the same?

    Have they been keeping track all of these years of the race and sex of the pilots on each flight?

    As the pilots are behind locked doors, they could have space aliens in there for all I know.

    So long as we touch down in one piece, it’s all good.

    If we are all equal, then why post news about having 2 black woman pilots in control of the plane?
