An All-White Military Unit

AR Staff, American Renaissance March 9, 2011

On Monday, we reported that something called the Military Leadership Diversity Commission says the officer corps of the American armed forces is too white and too male. “This problem will only become more acute as the racial, ethnic and cultural makeup of the United States continues to change,” the report adds.

A reader has sent us a group photo of the kind of men who go on to become officers. This photo was taken of the Marines of the 3rd Platoon of the 1st Force Recon., an elite unit. The brown-skinned fellows in the upper left are interpreters; everyone else is a useless white male.

The platoon strikes us as pretty formidable-looking unit, but no doubt the Military Leadership Diversity Commission would say it would be a lot more effective with a stiff dose of blacks, Hispanics and, of course, women.
