What about the charge that our Army is disproportionately black? This too is false, as is clear from data for fiscal 2010 available on the Army's website: Whereas blacks comprise 17% of Americans ages 18-39 with high school degrees, they represent only a slightly larger proportion of enlisted soldiers, at 21%.
Meanwhile, whites were significantly overrepresented among enlisted Army personnel in 2010. While 58% of Americans 18-39 years old are white, 64% of the Army's enlisted men and women are. Whites are underrepresented to a minor degree in only one category, in which blacks are overrepresented: Army officers. While 74% of 25-54 year-olds with bachelor's degrees are white, 72% of Army officers are white. While 8% of 25-54 year-olds with B.A.s are black, 13% of Army officers are.
Is it true that with a shaky economy, blacks have been driven to enlist in the Army in dramatically increased numbers? The 2010 numbers say otherwise. While 60% of 18-24 year-olds with a high school degree are white and 17% are black, 64% of new enlistees are white and 19% are black.
The Diversity Bullies are not really interested in equality, recognition of diversity, or inclusion - no. At their core they are little more than small minded, sectarians who, through their actions, judge people no better than the KKK.
They are either anti-white racists (yes, I wrote that), whites full of ethnic self-hate, or just shameless politicians trying to curry favor by trading their integrity for a few shekels.
Anyone who makes an extra effort to discriminate on the basis of race, creed, color, or national origin - which is what the Navy's Diversity policy does - is part of the problem, not the solution.
Ann ends strong;
This detachment is the result of a withdrawal of our urban elites from military service. And it suits the interests of many members of the urban elite to believe that the military they do not join is composed of poor, uneducated victims of an unfair society.... as are all actions that try to break our military - an institution that must have unity to excel in combat - in to sectarian bits for socio-political Cultural Marxist reasons.
The hidden assumption in this myth is that an institution that is heavily black is an inferior institution. The myth of the ghetto Army is as nastily racist as it is false.
To paraphrase; (D)iversity Diktat is as nastily racist as it is false.
