So close to being honest. So close.
From the History of the Navy Total Force: 2008-2011; behold all that is unclean and weep for the beloved Navy.
We understood that attracting and recruiting diverse talent was necessary, but retaining a diverse workforce and providing opportunity for promotion and advancement was equally as important. We worked closely with the CNO to establish annual accountability reviews with each Navy enterprise (e.g., submarine, surface, aviation). During these reviews, the enterprise leads discuss the diversity within their communities, and any barriers or challenges they face.Can we talk like adults? What the above says - in almost realspeak - is that while they have done all they can do to recruit non-white males, we are having trouble getting them at higher levels of leadership in the "proper" numbers to feed the CNO's fetish.
We also established a series of evaluation metrics to be reviewed and discussed during the accountability reviews, allowing us to effectively track progress according to established goals and measures of performance. Metrics include overall diversity, promotion diversity, retention diversity, and key/nominative billet diversity.
As a result, we are going to hold warfare communities accountable for meeting our quotas. If they are not meeting them - we are going to tell them where they need to actively discriminate based on race, creed, color, or national origin in order to reach them. We will - in a non-merit based program - provide opportunities to some and take opportunities from others based not on performance, but on self-identified racial/ethnic classifications that meet criteria established by the grievance industry.
Every step along the way, we are going to track numbers for our approved racial/ethnic groups. We are going to reward and/or punish leaders based on their ability to meet their quotas. We not only want them to discriminate when they rank people, we want discrimination to take place in the detailing process to those "select" jobs. We want them to do everything they can, give as much special attention as possible, to convince some to stay more than others - again based on race and ethnicity.
There - happy? Proud of our Navy and its retrograde policy of active discrimination?
Dishonorable, dishonest, and to the fair minded who believe that all men are created equal and should be judged by the content of their character - and not the color of their skin: disgusting.
We are a better people and a better Navy than this.
