Here we go.
Leaders of the U.S. Naval Academy tinkered with the composition of the color guard that appeared at a World Series game last month so the group would not be exclusively white and male.An affirmative statement of fact. Keep this para in mind as we move forward. This is the core truth of what happened.
Accounts differ on whose names were added to the color guard roster, or purged from the list. But the net result was that one of the six who marched on the Yankee Stadium field Oct. 29, Midshipman 2nd Class Hannah Allaire, was selected because her presence would make the service academy look more diverse before a national audience.Accurate - though it would have been two of six if one of the Diversity Selectees did not forget his shoes and cover.
You really need to read it all to get the full flavor of A: the bullshit itself and B: the Academy playing word games to cover things up.
Some more on this bullcrap from Diana West here.
And finally, we have Congress screwing with the Coast Guard Academy in the name of Diversity!
Washington (AP) - The House voted overwhelmingly for a bill that includes a provision giving members of Congress a say over who is admitted to the U.S. Coast Guard's 1,000-cadet service academy in New London, Conn.
The measure -- part of a multi-billion-dollar authorization bill that passed 385-11 on Friday -- was sponsored by Rep. James Oberstar, D-Minn., who argues that congressional nominations are needed to help increase the number of blacks enrolled at the academy and graduate as commissioned officers.
Don't you just love this shit? "I don't care who got the best scores or who's more qualified, I want more blacks in the academy no matter what!" Rep. Oberstar, you bigot, I don't give a rats ass about the skin color of who's in the Academy; I care that the people who work hard and try for it get a fair shot at it. Period. Screw you and your 'diversity' bullcrap.
