Diversity Thursday II: Electric Boogaloo

See what the cancer from the Diversity Industry and the Navy's Diversity Bulllies has done to the mind of our Navy and its officers?



The money quote:
I guess in the San Antonio area that is predominately Hispanic, that is one of our major components that we recruit for. But, me as being and African-American Naval Officer, I am able recruit for African-American as well.
One team; one fight, eh? So, you are NOT able to recruit non-Hispanic Caucasians? Asians? Mixed-race? In your scan?

How do you tell who is one and who is not? I look more Hispanic than half the "Hispanics" (including blonde hair and blue eyed ones) that I went through NROTC with. Oh, it is what they marked down? Just like immediate members of my family who are Hispanic? Sure. That is fair?

Don't blame the LT - he is just following orders. Orders not much different than those that defined Jim Crow - but orders until the Supreme Court calls a halt to it.

Shipmate - I wish you a short trip back to sea duty, you'll need it.

That is the sectarian cancer of Diversity. It makes bigots of us all, and has the government train its leaders in approved discrimination based on a racialist outlook.

That. Cannot. Be. Defended.

Here are the
demographics of the greater San Antonio area;
As of the census of 2000, there were 1,711,703 people, 601,265 households, and 432,131 families residing within the MSA. The racial makeup of the MSA was 71.40% White, 6.24% African American, 0.77% Native American, 1.40% Asian, 0.10% Pacific Islander, 16.64% from other races, and 3.44% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 50.43% of the population.
Yep, he has no interest 43.33% of San Antonio ... actually the numbers are fuzzier than that. Let's see - to get 50.43% Hispanic - at least 2/3 of the Whites are "Hispanic-White." Probably half the Blacks are "Hispanic-Black" and probably half the "Other" are "Hispanic-Other."

Asians in San Antonio are almost a rounding error, and no-one turns down a Siberian-American, I mean, American-Indian, I mean, Native American (like my kids) - whatever.

So, who does my LT have no interest in - who does he actively avoid providing opportunities to? Simple --- Whites and Asians - between 40-45% of the Greater San Antonio population. Isn't that lovely? Isn't that something that we should all be proud of?

But wait, a U.S. Naval Officer is a federal position, right? Isn't his paycheck financed by the taxes of all citizens? Shouldn't the CNO have a press conference with our LT, put his hand on his shoulders and say,
"I have never been prouder of our recruiters, especially this one - as ordered, he actively denied opportunities to those who look like over 72% of the American taxpayers who pay our salary! "
Yep, it is that ugly.

Here is a radical concept; who don't we treat all Americans like .... well ... Americans? Silly thing like content of character and such.

Wonderful.  An LT who thinks that the best for the Navy is to make it look divesre.

How about to get the best and brightest to Boot Camp/OCS/NROTC so when when your LCS is pockamrked from RPGs, and truck mounted SILKWORMS, someone can manage to save the ship and you, as you sink within 12 miles of hostile dry land. LT?

Priorities:  Let's give everyone a chance...so no one has their feeling hurt, in a mission critical application.

Worse yet, it sound like he really believs it.

I couldn't get over the fact the JO1, or whatever they're calling themselves now, was ESWS qualified.  What did the recruiter guy say again?

rexbob said...

JO1?  Wow, if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck..............

SUCKAS!!  I PITY THE FOOL.

RACISM... plain and simple.

G-man said...

Well after we achieve the diversity goals, then we will be forced to divide the pie into thinner slices by recruiting only in proportion to intelligence, hair color, and lastly - by sex.  If 52% of Americans are females why doesn't the navy correspond.  We need to have some sex recruiters!

LT B said...

G-man,
   I've been a sex recruiter for a long time.  It has nothing to do w/ Naval capabilities though.  I know Tony.  He and I worked together in Annapolis.  He's a good officer, but I do not like the diversity drivel being pushed down from above and our institutionalizing racism.

DaveP said...

We saw this sort of racist recruiting in many police forces in the late '70s and early '80s. They reaped the rewards of scandal, incompetence, lawsuits, shame and failure.
Not for hiring  'minority' applicants... for hiring UNQUALIFIED applicants BECAUSE they were minorities, and then keeping them even after they proved they were unsuited because they were minorities.

Jay said...

Still out of context?  Perhaps he didn't mention the 43% because it wasn't necessary (perhaps they are hitting their numbers well due to the recession?).  Nah...better to parse statements...because it feeds your emotions.

If you quote the LT -- (and you did) you see this: "But, me as being and African-American Naval Officer, I am able recruit for African-American as well."

As well -- which to me -- means also.

Sigh...

Jay,
Diagram that sentence there pal.  "...as well" in that sentence refers to "Hispanics."  Together he is focused on African-Americans and Hispanics. 

Try again to avoid the sunlight.

Byron Audler said...

In my 55 years worth of reading (hey, I started real early!) the phrase "as well" is meant to be taken as the subject (African Americans) as a subset of the whole.  So "Also" does not equal "as well"

DM05 said...

'diversity' should not be the # 1 priority... warfighting and blue Sailors should be. CNO, go home. Now. Take the other sensitive politbocrats with you.

CDR L said...

I can't take this kind of thing anymore.  The balkanization continues ...

UltimaRatioRegis said...

Hey Phib, wonder if, for his prize as Diversity Officer Recruiter of the Year, the Navy gave him season tickets.   

FCC said...

And while we're proportionalizing to mirror US population in uniform ...

1)  Sailors are too educated.  At least 14% of Sailors should be non-high school graduates.

2)  Lets ensure that a little over 2% of our men and women in uniform are convicted felons.

3)  Roughly 5% should have smoked marijuana in the past month.

4)  Are we sure that lefties aren't disenfranchised?  Where is the field to select my handedness in my personnel record?  Is Big Navy ensuring that the number of left-handed Sailors matches the 7-10% prevelance?

UltimaRatioRegis said...

Dammit, I swiped GOH's story (and joke).   Sorry 'bout that, big fella.  Didn't read close enough here.
