The vast majority of the Pentagon's Special Forces units, like the Navy SEALs, are commanded and manned by white officers and troops. Joining in the with the leftist cry for ‘diversity', many military officials at the highest levels are stressing the need for change to match other branches of the armed forces.
For example, blacks comprised 17 percent of the Army in 2013 – a higher figure than their representation of the overall population.

“Diversity” through race based selections is simply racism by another name. True “diversity” can only be achieved by ignoring race altogether and only considering: qualifications, experience and capabilities.
Anyone in the pentagon who thinks this way should be tried for tteason.
This sounds like b******t to me. First, you train and utilize the best qualified. You lower the standards, and suddenly you have a substandard unit. Second, we aren’t recruiting people from other countries to bolster our special forces units. We utilize subject experts to train out troops so they can function in these areas around the world.
Hmmmm. I wonder why.
Good, get the job done.
Here we go again, in the 90s the USMC wanted more diversity for officers and lowered the standards for some but not whites. There was quite an uproar over that. Shouldn’t leaders of Marines be the finest available, not someone who got in with a lower standard.
Can you imagine how they (the ones who knew they were accepted because of lower standards) would feel themselves. Would they be as proud of their accomplishments as the the others, fill in the blank, Seals, GB, PR, Marines.
I say you either cut the mustard or move aside no matter what your ethnicity. It’s about doing a job, and bringing everyone home alive.
DESPICABLE… I’m wonder which MORON(s) came up with that thought… Good Grief !!!
Drag them kicking and screaming from logistics and cross train them into Special Forces. SIMPLE!
DIVERSITY MEANS NOT FACING REALITY
