You could try to work for the oil industry and let them know you support the elimination of the industry you want to apply too. Brag openly that a fuel tax is needed to pay for your new plasma warp generator. (We just need more pixie dust and we will have it). The air industry must go, so suggest a fery service powered by solar panels and sails to get to the oil rigs. I make sence right...? wait, no I mean...oh I see, Im an idiot.

Nobody will care.  I’ve worked with a couple black pilots in the GOM.  Make and female.  People are way more concerned about how you fly and, on a contract, how you get along with people and deal with low IQ dispatchers.

You will be fine.   They do serve Chicken and Watermellon on the oil rigs.   

You could find a 10'x10' piece of land behind the pilot apt and grow some cotten in case you feel the need to pick some.  

And there are plenty of white women in LA for ya.   

And just call everyone you work with "Master" and you will be fine.  

Come on,  I am just messing with ya...... If you can fly and have a medical you will have no issues at all in the GOM.

Yes.

Heaven forbid any industry be a meritocracy.

The resume should be the determining factor in hiring.

Not if you are a favored minority.

You have turned our country upside down.

Incorrect.

White contains all the colors except black.

Try again.

Besides, Caucasians are not white.

The only human who comes close to being white is an albino.

I would suggest if YOU see differences in color, so will others. If you appear to others as a PILOT, that is what you will be treated as.  If you go in thinking you will be shunned, or if you are expecting special privileges, dont bother showing up.  Otherwise, be positive and when of the boys.

You don't have to fear what you fantasize.

When I was new to flying in the GOM, I was taking a gang out to a platform and all the way there, they were talking about how there were two guys on the platform: a white guy and a black guy.  They kept saying how much the white guy hated the black guy, they used the N-word, how the white guy said the the black guy smelled bad, etc.  I expected to find the worst situation.  When I got there, the black guy had a cold and was sitting down in the kitchen.  He had a blanket hanging around his shoulders and the white guy was serving him some soup he had cooked and dotingly taking care of him.  It was like he was taking care of a family member.  The whole time I was there, they treated him completely normaly.  Only when they weren't around him, did they all act like they hated him to each other.

It reminded me of something someone said to me once about racism in the South vs. the North.  She said that in the South, people hate all black people but love the ones they know personally.  In the north, people love all black people but hate the ones they know personally.
