The U.S. Army says its time to ditch photos in officer promotion board packages as a way guaranteeing a diverse racial aesthetic. The move, which will go into effect Aug. 1, was confirmed by Military.com on Thursday and comes shortly after the creation of the “Defense Board on Diversity and Inclusion.” “The strength of our Army comes from our diversity,” leaders wrote in a memo obtained by the defense website. “Developing and maintaining qualified and demographically diverse leadership is critical for mission effectiveness and is essential to national security.” Reporter Hope Hodge Seck noted that photos were historically used by Army leaders to gauge “military bearing,

Comments:

Diversity and full embracement of Marxist ideology, rather than competence or respect for the US Constitution, is critical for mission effectiveness and essential to national security. Still think Obama was an ineffective president? Heck, he runs the show even now; his well-funded civilian army is destroying our cities while the police stand by, and the real military signals on all fronts its willingness to side with anyone other than we the people. Shocking, really, and it's unfolding by the minute.

America seems to have descended far below the point of diminishing returns on that "diversity" quest. On many levels. Oh what the hell, we've been out of the war-winning business since 1945 anyway.

Ummm - - like - - if I wanted help from the Army - - I'd want someone who is tough, patriotic, and courageous - - - - not someone who is "diverse." But hey - - that's just silly me.

Hahaha. This latest king-stupid idea will actually HURT minorities because when the Board knew what an officer looked like, they would automatically apply AFFIRMATIVE ACTION which boosted the ethnic officer's chances but now they'll have to compete on straight-up merit. Hmm, not a bad idea, that.

Please explain how "diversity" has any inherent strength? It is far more plausible that diversity leads to inefficiency and lack of cohesion. The very idea that something is inherently better because it is diverse is pure claptrap.

A photo may not show talent, but it sure as hell shows an out of shape fatso and/or a sloppily dressed and unprofessional officer. But what the heck, some of those guys have been getting promoted for years. Side note: I finally saw Midway last week. It looked like the officers uniforms had been ironed with a tennis shoe. It was a big distraction, but that's just me.

One of the reasons for those photos a few years ago was to insure that the Officer Corps was fit...not fat! And the Army has always prided itself on being color blind...at least till Obama lobotomized his Generals to get the PC guys in there.

Strength comes from selecting entirely on merit. When anyone is promoted because of skin color or sex, it harms the unit. Maybe this will cut down on affirmative action promoting.

The Army these days must have pretty stupid promotion boards. As once such a board reviews all the promotion documentation relating to an individual soldier it is easy to figure out a soldier’s race or ethnicity if you want to. Just the soldier’s name says a lot. It seems that the Army does not trust their promotion boards to do the right thing.

A fellow officer who was a friend of mine once sat on a promotion board. It is exhausting, high pressure work to winnow out the few winners out of the many candidates for promotion. The jump from being a "company grade" captain to being a "field grade" major is particularly challenging. He told me of one candidate who was easy to grade. He posed for his photo using two 1st Lieutenant bars instead of a captain's "railroad tracks." The poster who said a photo doesn't show talent is correct. But it can show many other qualities, such as the "don't give a d**n" attitude showed by that slovenly captain.

“The strength of our Army comes from our diversity,” No, it doesn't. That's nothing but a tired lie that we have been hearing for years. It's been repeated countless times by nitwit flag officers for PC purposes. "Diversity " as it's practiced now means it actually weakens our military. I recall that many years ago, our government decided that it was wrong to have a box to fill out the race of the applicant for a loan or a mortgage so they had it eliminated. After it was implemented and in place, it suddenly occurred to them that there was now no way to count if minorities were getting their 'fair share' of loans. As posters have noticed, this could very well reduce the number of black oficer promotions.

The gravestone of a dog named the 'N word' based in Warwickshire has been removed amid the Black Lives Matter movement. The dog passed away in July 1902 and his memorial in Coombe Abbey Park, a popular cultural attraction, displayed his controversial name along with the date of his death. Following complaints made last year, Coventry City Council refused to remove the gravestone due to property reasons, but it has finally been taken away following the worldwide protests sparked by George Floyd's death in the United States.

Pelosi slammed President Donald Trump and Republicans for their alleged inability to face Russian aggression—and tied them to President Barack Obama’s appeasement of Moscow. "You just described, not only for the president, but the Republicans in Congress, dereliction of duty," Pelosi told MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace. "Undermining our own elections, undermining our commitment to NATO, giving away the store, the base, in Syria. The list goes on and on.
