    Military Training Manual: The ‘Healthy, White, Heterosexual, Christian Male Receives Many Unearned Advantages’

    Oct. 31, 2013 8:30pm Liz Klimas


    A manual used for diversity training for the military describes white males as having an “unfair advantage” compared to other races, and encourages troops to “support the leadership of people of color.”
    The 637-page manual — the Equal Opportunity Advisor Student Guide published by the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute — was obtained by Fox News and contains information cautioning against the “white male club.”

    DEOMI offers seven military Equal Opportunity courses as well as civilian trainings. Fox News commentator Todd Starnes reported an Equal Opportunity officer, who was not identified, provided him a copy of the manual used at Florida’s Patrick Air Force Base after the officer became concerned about its content:
    “I’m participating in teaching things that are not true,” the instructor told me. He asked not to be identified because he feared reprisals.
    “I should not be in a position to do that,” he said. “It violates Constitutional principles, but it also violates my conscience. And I’m not going to do it – not going to do it.”
    “Simply put, a healthy, white, heterosexual, Christian male receives many unearned advantages of social privilege, whereas a black, homosexual, atheist female in poor health receives many unearned disadvantages of social privilege,” a statement in the manual read.
    A section in the manual called “Power and Privilege” describes whites as an “empowered group.”
    The military document advised personnel to “assume racism is everywhere, every day” and “notice code words for race.” They are instructed to “understand and learn from the history of whiteness and racism.”

    This might have been true 50 years ago. It's not true anymore.

    Another style quota system which leads to focusing on something other than results. There's no room for such feel-good BS if we want the best possible military.
    As has been said before, I'd bet the originator of this would gladly wave off these standards in picking his/her surgeon

    And, it fosters racial and gender resentment that will manifest itself in disciplinary issues, and I mean the kind that get people killed. The skin-deep diversity fetishists are going to have us at each other's throats again.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    Damned social engineering. A quick drive through enlisted housing will show you what their objective is.
