Task Force One Navy was stood up this week and is expected to make recommendations on everything from career advancement to military justice.
Apparently the hours of mandatory classroom and CBT training, EEO lectures, ethics training, and other equality programs in place since the 70's have made no difference to racism in the military.
I don't deny that racial incidents do occur but not systemically and when they do occur they are aggressively handled at the command level. If the accuser isn't satisfied there are procedures to further elevate the problem.
IMO this is a reaction to the "everything is racist if I want it to be" rhetoric currently being thrown about. When cosmetic companies are removing the words lightening or whitening from their products because of racist connotations the Navy needs to understand they cannot possibly keep up with the maddening evolution of perceived racism and the rabid pursuit of finding the next racist term.
