A reader has been after me to post on this buried racist mass murder, which prior to the Happy Land arson in the Bronx (immigrant mass murder), was probably the single biggest murder in American history, and may still be the biggest workplace mass murder here ever. On December 7, 1987, racist, Jamaican immigrant career criminal David Burke slaughtered 43 people, including his former USAir boss, on a daily Los Angeles to San Francisco commuter flight.
Had the lessons of Flight 1771 been learned, cockpit doors would have been secured and hardened, and Arab Moslems could never have pulled off 9/11. However, David Burke was black and an immigrant. Thus, it would have been “racist” learn any lessons from his racially motivated massacre.

Black thug fired from airline job for theft, murders 43 in revenge in California
Looks like firing a black employee with a racist chip on his shoulder can be dangerous, considering this mass murder and other similar mass murders of whites by disgruntled former black employees.
He probably was an affirmative action hire in the first place.
More information on the thug:
Previously Burke had worked for an airline in Rochester, New York, where he was a suspect in a drug-smuggling ring that was bringing cocaine from Jamaica to Rochester via the airline. He was never officially charged, but is reported to have relocated to Los Angeles to avoid future suspicions.
He definitely fits the profile. Black employee hired because of his race, yet he can’t be fired, no matter what, for fear of a Federal lawsuit, so he is just relocated by the company.
[Compare this to the case of racist murderer Brittany Norwood, a thief who was reporter transferred from one Lululemon store to another, until she heinously murdered manager Jayna Murray in the Bethesda store.]
In Rochester, David Burke worked for USAir for 14 years before transferring here a year ago. In recent years he had been investigated on suspicion of being part of a narcotics ring, but nothing was found to warrant a formal charge. That held true, also, for allegations of automobile theft.
Allan Burke, who teaches special education in Rochester, said romantic relationships had brought David Burke seven children, but he never married. ''Is it a crime that four boys in a family don't marry?”
Memorial site reveals the human faces of some of the 43 people that he murdered:
