Diversity Thursday

OK all you N1/Admin weenie types. Do a little mental math for me. The deckplate view of some of the warfighter's administrative burden.

Look at the below list. Ponder all the time taken in selection boards from the CDR-Command level on up. Multiply that by the number of commands that will process this. Add it up.

Then ask yourself - when have you ever known this to positively impact any warfighter's career? No, it strengthens only those who give the awards. It justifies their sectarianism and race-focused world view.

People in the USA have a right to be as bigoted in their views as they want. That doesn't mean we should invest thousands of man-hours and travel funds to make them feel good about their racialist hobby.

Shame on us.

I always like the reply that came in when higher sent out a request for the number of members broken down by sex. The reply? Actually, we find alcohol more of a problem.
