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?
"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.
