When the kids profiled below join up, do we just call them American or Navy Blue - or are we going to go by the Klan-like "one drop rule" like the Navy is now? ..... and a drop of what blood? By treating different ethnic groups differently now, like we do, do we encourage racial self-identification fraud?
Wait ... we already have that answer. Of course we do. On top of that, the Navy uses either a Klan-like "one drop rule" and/or encourages self-identification fraud.
Why? Leadership demands it. Until it is illegal - that is what we do. Kind of makes you feel slimy, yes? In a way, forcing a bitter, retrograde attitude on these young kids - like those in this book - is mental child abuse, isn't it?
UPDATE: If you want to see where the sectarianism that the CNO and the Navy supports leads to - well - click here. And yes, I told you so.
