This week’s sign America is irredeemable [Goldfein: Embracing Diversity Isn’t About Being Politically Correct, It’s a “Warfighting Imperative”, Air Force Magazine, 3-1-19]:

Improving diversity and acceptance across the Air Force isn’t just about being politically correct, it’s a “warfighting imperative,” USAF Chief of Staff Gen. David Goldfein said Friday.

Speaking to a room packed full of airmen at AFA’s Air Warfare Symposium, Goldfein said for himself and many leaders across the service, it can be hard to recognize issues other airmen face. These leaders need to accept that “we have blinders on as leaders,” and need to reach out to airmen from all backgrounds, races, genders, etc., to point out ways to improve.

“The only way we can see that is to surround ourselves and build teams in ways that others can point them out for us,” Goldfein said, adding that there needs to be a “big tent” culture of acceptance in the Air Force.

Goldfein said in his own career he had his own blinders on because the military experience in many ways is made for people like him. He always flew in equipment that is made for men, unlike women who can be forced to fly a nine-hour sortie in equipment not built for them. He said he’s “never been the only one of me in a room.”

“Every time I’ve been in a room, most people in that room looked like me, sound like me,” he said.

Unlike many women in the Air Force, he’s never been “scrutinized to a different level” or been told jokes that could be offensive.

To illustrate his point, Goldfein told a story about his first chief master sergeant when he was a squadron commander, and a box. One day, the chief came into his office and handed him the box and said that it “makes your airmen mad” and it “oughta make you mad.” He said he couldn’t understand his point. Looking closer, it was a box of flesh colored Band-Aids.

“I ain’t getting it,” Goldfein said he told him.

The chief pulled out the pink, “flesh-colored” Band-Aid and put it on his skin. The chief is black, the Band-Aid is made for white people, and the bandage completely stuck out.

“He said, ‘That ought to make you mad, because it makes a lot of your airmen mad.’ And he winked and he walked out,” Goldfein said. “So what’s the moral of the story, as leaders, as servant leaders. I couldn’t see it. I could’ve stared at that thing for weeks and I would never have seen it.”

It takes someone from a different background to be able to point out something you could never see as an issue, Goldfein said.

ORDER IT NOW

“The challenges we face as a nation are wicked hard, and it’s going to take folks with different backgrounds, different life experiences, and different perspectives to be able to come in and sit down together and provide the creative solutions that we as a nation need to be able to fight and win,” he said.

In 2018, Mother Jones complained the wives of Air Force officers were too white.

In 2016, a Brigadier General with the Air Force complained the elite Thunderbirds pilots were too white.

And now, the USAF Chief of Staff argues diversity is a “warfighting imperative” because of a racial anecdote he recalled shared by a black airmen upset bandaids were designed for white people.

    I’m a veteran-the U.S. military has become a bad joke since ‘Nam. It’s been taken over by nonwhites, and, now, women, and is more and more, a PC welfare program, where plenty of people who never served a day in combat, or have been seriously injured in any way, now get “disability” payments after their hitch.

  11. Whitey says:

    The only reason that Goldfein has never been in a room of only one of me, is that there is always a surplus of idiots.
    You don’t get to flag rank in today’s military without being one hell of a butt kisser.

    Yeah, no.

  15. Gunga Din says:

    Once upon a time, a person in the (((general’s))) position would’ve told that black Msgt to quit being so GD’ed sensitive oe he’ll be busted back to Airman recruit. With guy’s like this in charge, if we ever have to go up against a real fighting force, like Russia or China, we’ll probably get our ass kicked.

  16. DMZABO says:

    Are they that stupid? You are bleeding or have a cut that needs a bandage or a cover to keep dirt or germs from getting into that cut? Let’s see a bastard of a staphylococcus infection or a pink colored bandage? Any wonder they never built a ship or had written languages? Any?

  17. Served eight years in the Marines through the late 80’s through some of the 90’s. When I was in, we were told the military’s job was to kill people, break things and win wars. Sure, we had that Black History nonsense, and ” Don’t ask don’t tell”, but nothing like this all consuming diversity garbage today. And women in combat? Oh please! Today I tell younger people don’t even think of going in. It’s just endless wars for a certain group., and then come back home and get treated like crap by the Department of Veteran
    Affairs.

  19. RickTen99 says:

    Works for me. If the negro airman is injured and need of a bandage, gauze, tape or other medical supplies and there are only white supplies available they could have the option to refuse treatment. Simple.

  20. If we fought WW II under the same rules that require racial equality, diversity, and sexual equality, we would never have won the war. Imagine storming the beaches of Normandy with an army that is required to look like a Benetton ad. The enemy does not concern itself with equality but winning the war.

  21. In a heartwarming story, today’s Daily Mail shows a lion and tiger cub playing together.

    Once they pass through puberty and become adults they will be mortal enemies who will fight to the death to exclude each other from their respective territories.

    Ergo, human adults who want to play nice with their alien competition are acting like immature cubs. They do this in the vain hope that by behaving in a cute, pre-sexual way, they can avoid conflict in which they risk incurring physical pain and injury. They lack courage. They are cowards. Preaching acceptance of LGBT values goes hand in hand with this rejection of being a courageous, adult male, is the other side of the same coin.

    Wow. I don’t even think there are hardly any black USAF fighter pilots. I believe the number was less than 1%. And it’s not like the USAF isn’t trying everything they can to get as many blacks into fighter planes as they can.

    So blacks cannot even become regular fighter pilots. How in the hell does this Brigadier General think that there will be black pilots who can fly with the Thunderbirds, considering that probably only about 0.05% of USAF WHITE pilots could be good enough to fly for them?

    Yeah, let’s go ahead and throw a black pilot in there! Gotta have some of that sweet, sweet diversity!! It’s our greatest strength!

    Just stay away from any air shows when that happens. Because about one or two air shows after this happens, another Ramstein air show disaster will be in the wings, as it were.

    (Then, again, so what if 70 of those air show attendees get slashed and burned to death due to the incompetence of a black pilot! Their deaths would be worth it! It’s the price we gotta pay for diversity!! Besides…only white people go to air shows anyways!)

    Reminds me of the joke about a guy on board a flight, who really has to use the restroom, only the men’s room is occupied. He sneaks into the women’s restroom, locks the door and surveys the room. Soft music is playing and a make-up area is lined with creams and perfumes.
    These women have it made, he thinks, as he sits down to do his business.
    In front of him on the wall he notices a large red button with the letters TR in white.
    Hesitating, he’s finally overcome with curiosity and presses the button and immediately loses consciousness.
    He wakes up in a hospital room and a nurse is next to the bed.
    She stoically listens to his tale, then replies:

  50. Only 3,700 of the total 14,000 pilots in the Us Air Force are fighter pilots, and there are less than a 100 women who are fighter pilots.
    Only 1.9 percent of Air Force pilots are black, according to AFPC. Of 14,130 Air Force pilots, 270 identified themselves as black; another 620 declined to report their race.
    The percentages of blacks and other minorities among U.S. pilots are so low it’s hard to find meaningful statistics. A 1997 National Academies report, “Taking Flight: Education and Training for Aviation Careers” found 92 percent of U.S. airline pilots in 1990 were white men, compared with 43 percent in the civilian labor force. Less than 2 percent were black and less than 3 percent hispanic.
    In 1976, approximately 80 black pilots were employed by the nation’s major and commuter passenger airlines and freight carriers. By 1986 that number had risen to nearly 400, and today the total is estimated to be 674, including at least 14 black female pilots (thanks to Bessie Coleman). While the total increase is impressive on the surface, one must realize that there is a total of over 71,000 pilots working for these airlines.
    As one story read….I live in an area with a good sized black middle class. Still, at the GA airports they (black pilots) are an uncommon sight. It’s not for the lack of money, the ones I am acquainted with professionally rather collect Bentleys or SL300 Benzes.
    Blacks like bling not math. If this species was meant to fly they would have built Wakanda International Airport in Baltimore or D.C to land their famous flying pyramids. One has to laff to prevent themselves from crying.
    There is no way you can force blacks to fly… Its suicide to them..It is a human thing to explore the skies and space. There will NEVER be a Black Space Agency of their own making and technology as can be seen from the advancements in Africa flight videos on You Tube.

    This issue is too silly for words. It is another piece of evidence that the black peopls’s concern about “racism” is insincere and hypocritical.

    Why are BAND AIDS (the Johnson and Johnson trade mark is in all caps) white not black? More importantly is this some sort of slight against Negroes?

    A moments research reveals that BAND AIDS were invent by a white guy in 1920. I imagine that like most medical dressings they were white- not for racial reasons but just simply that if the dressing leaks bodily fluids it is easier to see against a white dressing.

    Then in the fifties BAND AIDS were made with cartoons on the them (Mickey Mouse, Bat Man. etc). Then later someone tried “skin colored” bandages. Big mistake. the rabid race mongers who had black skins got something new to complain about.

    I have a box of BAND AIDS in the bathroom with all the other over the counter nostrums and gizmos. I think a box lasts me at least twenty years. Maybe thirty. I simply don’t cut myself that often. Maybe if I were a professional mumbly-peg player I would use more. But I think most adults without small children hardly ever use them. BAND AIDs just aren’t very important. The idea that black people are offended about the color of their BAND AIDs is just silly.

    But then most charges of racism are also silly.

  61. Just for kicks, I asked an IKAGO his opinion on “flesh” colored bandages, and if he’s offended by them. First thing out of his mouth was ‘UMMM, they make them in CLEAR!” I mentioned this story to him, and he just rolled his eyes. And then added “They also make them with Garfield on them, and other cartoon characters!”

    He also made a good point that, just because a bandage is “flesh” colored, it’s still not going to be a perfect match on most white people, either! He said the thought to be offended by the color of a bandage never occurred to him. So, maybe there is still yet hope, for some of them.

    Another oversimplification from a BS globalist philosophy. Most wars existed before the modern welfare state.

    Well, a few days after the Jussie Smollett thing supposedly happened, I made mention that people were theorizing there was something fishy about it. And I said that it hit on too many clichés…white men, MAGA hats, rope, bleach, and so on, not to mention the chances of two racists hanging out at 2 am on a cold night in Chicago waiting for him. He blew up at me, saying it could have happened. And, I agree yes, it could have happened. BUT, it most likely didn’t.

    So, I have no idea how he’d react with Trayvon Martin. Here’s my opinion on where it went wrong, though…Zimmerman was following Martin, which, yes, could be taken as threatening. But apparently, Trayvon ended up hiding in the bushes and then jumped Zimmerman, and was beating the crap out of the little butterball, and that’s when Zimmerman shot him. If Trayvon had gone on home, or tried to get away, different story. And if Zimmerman had actually made the first attack, again, a different story. But, because Trayvon ambushed him, and attacked first (even if he felt threatened and thought it was self defense, that’s why Zimmerman’s actions were justified in the eyes of the law.

    Personally, I’m sad that it had to end in murder. And, Zimmerman seems like a piece of work, in his own right. I really wish we could all stop being violent, hating each other, and learn to get along. But, I’m enough of a realist to know that’s not going to happen, and we have to do what it takes to survive.

    And yes, I used to live in that county. Recently moved. Sometimes I think not far enough. The area I was in actually wasn’t too bad, but go too far in any direction and you have to be careful. Certain places, even if they look nice during the day, can be iffy at night. And you can just feel the whole county getting more and more corrupt. I still think eventually, the Latinos will take it over though. While blacks are the majority, the Latinos seem to be catching up. I don’t know if that’s a good thing or not.

    I know of a medical professional that flunked out of the private sector and yet was given a job at the VA for being the right race.

    I can beat that.  I know a (maybe former now) VA surgeon.  He caught onto some of the malpractice going on in a certain big city with corrupt politics and a big feces species problem.  The administration fought him but he was able to get the malefactors kicked out.

    Guess where they went?  Arizona, where that other VA scandal blew up not long ago.  And guess who was at the center?  Same clowns.  They were the “right race” and nobody cared about the patients.

    Not only didn’t he apologize, he never even owned up to it. The swift and severe retribution he swore would be brought down upon the malefactor never materialized.

I don’t think Truman flew into Japan with the lights off. Lights out America.

    Here’s my opinion on where it went wrong, though…Zimmerman was following Martin,

    I’ve had this back and forth with my fellow blacks. Blacks always point out Zimmerman was following him. I always ask them, why did Zimmerman feel the need to follow Trayvon? Why did Zimmerman even have a gun? In my opinion, the behavior of blacks preceded Trayvon. The court trial outlined it. The behavior of blacks caused Zimmerman to buy a gun.

    Personally, I’m sad that it had to end in murder. And, Zimmerman seems like a piece of work, in his own right.
    Before Zimmerman’s encounter with Trayvon , he led a decent life. Neighbors, friends, associates had nothing negative to say about him in court. Not even a mildly negative tweet. He seems to have melted down after the affair.

    As for PG county, I’m a landlord in DC. Several of my properties are close to PG on either the SE or NW side.

    Recently, I had a black blasting his music in the middle of the day. He responded that the (White man’s) law gives him the right to play his music loud until 11PM.
    There is nothing more frustrating than the intersection of a low IQ negro and the white man’s law.

    Remember, Zimmerman was involved in social justice before he met up with Trayvon. You can find links to stories where he organized rallies against perceived police brutality against blacks.

    Ironically, had things not gone down as they had, Zimmerman would have likely become a vocal cheerleader for the black lives matter movement and colin kaepernick, though the creation of those phenomena may have been delayed for months to years without his contribution to them.

    “Diversity is a warfighting imperative.”

    My father was part of the air was in the Pacific in WW II when the military was segregated. They won that one. As he pointed out many years ago, the military went through integration and we haven’t won a war since then. (Yes, I know there have been other factors, but this didn’t help a bit.)

    The general is flat-out wrong. The only real imperative is excellence. But you can’t have excellence with AA hires, and to obscure reality this commander claims what’s really important is diversity.

    By the way, if you see an Air Force recruiting commercial you’ll see this general right up front in most of them. He’s getting his face out there, perhaps for a big position in the next Democratic administration.

    We are thankful….This area got its hydro from Niagara Falls prior to Nanticoke…The nuke plant created lots of wealth. The last 30 years have seen an increase in mud races from around the world.
    The Pakistanis and Indians are the worst. They are filthy disgusting creatures.. their restaurants, their motels. I dont patronize any business owned or operated by muds. None of their money stays in the community. They send it home to prepare for their retirement and eventual return to mudville to live like kings.
    When Bruce plant was being built it was by the people here and from Toronto.. Many engineers from from England as well. They all bounced back and forth from Bruce to Pickering and Darlington nukes.

    Nanticoke is closed and sched’d for demo…Spent many weekend at Long Point and you could see it from there thru the hot summer haze. Candu reactors are the absolute safest in the world. Bruce Power (formerly Douglas Point/Bruce Nuclear) is set to retube and run for another 50 years.

  94. No matter what organization you belong to or whatever job you work at, if there are any blacks present whatsoever, it is an absolute certainty that they’ll start screaming racism over something. That is as sure as sunrise and sunset. The only variable is how intense and sustained the screeching will be and how much they’ll demand or expect in the way of special treatment to soothe their “feelings.” No evidence of racism or discriminatory treatment is required for the complaints to erupt- they’ll find something to screech about every damned time no matter how ridiculous and made up the charges are. In the rare instances where their screeching doesn’t get them the desired results, they become passive aggressive, disrupt the work environment to the greatest extent possible and engage in sabotaging everything they can to get “revenge.” Or, as happened on one job, begin screeching that they’re contacting the NAACP and “they gonna sue!”

    In that regard, complaining about something as stupid as the color of bandaids-well, that’s just the opening shot and you can rest assured that it would be followed by an entire litany of complaints of how they’re being done wrong, mistreated and disrespected and how everyone is so “insensitive” or downright racist.

    That’s one of the things I absolutely love about being retired- being completely away from them and away from their never-ending BS. Free at last, oh lord, free at last!

    If you search YouTube for “Zambia space program” you will get a whole bunch of videos.  The level of cargo-cult thinking shown in them is off the charts.  Example:

    This, plus the video of the S. African “students” demanding that witch-doctor magic be taught as equivalent or superior to “White people” science because science is “racist”, should be excellent red-pill material for those who are not yet race realists.  Africans don’t function in Western society because they do not and CAN not handle the thought processes required.  Their deficiencies are systemic and all but certainly genetic; it’s a fact that they have not been educated out of them.

    Yes — A good explanation for this may be that he is looking to both cash-in with one or more think-tank-type sinecures, and/or have a political career (perhaps as a CNN or MSNBC commentator) once he retires, which will be soon: At the latest, Q2 2020.

    (By the way: How old is Goldfein? Haaretz had an article praising him as the second Jewish head of the U.S. Air Force which listed him as b.1961. He graduated from the Air Force Academy in 1983; graduation at age 22 seems likely [unless he took a year or two off to serve in the IDF or something first]. The Internet mainly thinks he is born in 1959, due to somebody’s unsourced insertion of that birth year on his wiki page.)

    the second Jewish head of the U.S. Air Force

    The first someone named Schwarz (served Aug. 2008 to Aug. 2012), who declared himself “proud to be identified as Jewish as well as an American military leader.” Between August 2008 and August 2019, eleven years, a Jew will have occupied the top spot in the U.S. Air Force for a little over 7 years, or nearly two-thirds of the time.
