SUBJ/2007-2008 DIVERSITY EVENTS CALENDAR UPDATE//The poison stew of the Boomer generational guilt and fear of the Diversity Bully Cult threatens clear communication in the Navy about important issues, divides the Fleet by arbitrary and racist definitions, and degrades the integrity of all involved.
RMKS/1. THIS NAVADMIN UPDATES THE QUARTERLY 2007-2008 DIVERSITY EVENTS CALENDAR. IMPROVING NAVY S DIVERSITY IS A STRATEGIC IMPERATIVE AND WE ARE COMMITTED TO DEVELOPING, IMPLEMENTING, AND IMPROVING PROGRAMS THAT PROMOTE A DIVERSE WORKFORCE IN WHICH ALL SAILORS FULFILL THEIR MAXIMUM POTENTIAL.
2. OUR ABILITY TO REACH THE TALENT IN EVERY PART OF OUR SOCIETY DIRECTLY IMPACTS NAVY'S MISSION SUCCESS. OUTREACH EVENTS AND AWARDS PROVIDE EXCELLENT OPPORTUNITIES TO INFORM THE COMMUNITY ABOUT THE MANY NAVY PROGRAMS AVAILABLE TO OUR YOUTH; THEY ALSO FOSTER THE PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT OF OUR SAILORS. PARTICIPATION ALSO ALLOWS US TO DEMONSTRATE OUR NAVY S RICH HERITAGE AND COMMITMENT TO GROWING A CULTURALLY DIVERSE FORCE. ALL COMMANDS ARE ENCOURAGED TO SUPPORT THESE PRESTIGIOUS AWARDS AND EVENTS THROUGH NOMINATIONS AND ATTENDANCE.
Like the Soviet Political Officers before them, except for the very few True Believers, I know that the majority of those involved in this obscene Kabuki dance do not believe what they are putting out.
The Fleet I know is one of native born Americans of all races, glorious mixtures, and immigrants from almost every nation you can think of. To lump a person who grew up in Ghana with the mixed race descendent of former slaves - a 4th Generation Japanese-American with a Vietnamese boat child - a descendent of a Pilgrim with a Bosnian refugee - that is something I expect of someone from the KKK, not from my Navy.
Gen X, Gen Y, and whatever you call someone born in 1989 that just checked in are over it - all except those whose open mind has been scuttled by the agenda driven oxygen thieves who still think we all came from Room 222.
Some "Hate Whitey" type leads 7 Blacks, 7 Mexicans, 5 Women, 2 Indians and an Asian.......isn't being told by some jerk who had too much to drink - but by us, our Navy. Yes, it is ugly. It doesn't belong in 2007 - and we can do better.
Just wrong. Condescending, patronizing, divisive, retrograde, and just plain inaccurate.
Hat tip my Fleet LT gadfly.
