400 Soldiers in GA Forced To Sit Through “White Privilege” Presentation

A U.S. Army diversity training session featuring slides on “white privilege,” resulted in lots of eye-rolls and at least one mass walk-out in Georgia, last week.

According to The Blaze, the US Army is investigating the unauthorized diversity training presentation.

The Equal Opportunity training presentation was shown to about 400 soldiers of the 67th Signal Battalion at Fort Gordon on Thursday, according to Captain Lindsay Roman.

The portion of the program involved a slide projected on a screen entitled ”The Luxury of Obliviousness,” which listed elements of “white privilege.”

The slide read: “Race privilege gives whites little reason to pay a lot of attention to African Americans or to how white privilege affects them. To be white in American (sic) means not having to think about it.”

A Facebook page called, The Army’s WTF Moments, posted the following: 

“Remember the #Awkward EO brief? … A member of the community called them out. This is the outcome.”

If you read the comments at the FB page, this little exercise didn’t go over well, at all. One soldier wrote:

“True story: I went to a forced [Equal Employment Opportunity] EEO class and the white female SSG said we white folks were a problem. I looked around the room and everyone of every race were rolling their eyes,” said Scott Hampton Truelove. “We of all races went fishing, eating out, having BBQs, went to the club, together. We all never had a problem with race. We as a group stood up and walked out. She was cutting into our beer drinking time.”

Captain Roman told USA Today  that the instructor was out of line.

“The unit (Equal Opportunity) instructor deviated from the authorized topic and content which was provided,” Roman told USA Today. “To prevent further instances, all unit instructors will receive additional training on the importance of following Army EO training requirements.”

The episode is reminiscent of the time a US Army Equal Opportunity training brief on extremism,  listed Evangelical Christianity, Catholicism, ultra Orthodox Jews, and the Church of Latter Day Saints among Al Qaeda, Hamas, the Ku Klux Klan, Sunni Muslims, and Nation of Islam as examples of religious extremism.

In Obama’s America, even the military falls prey to the the left’s most obnoxious cultural Marxist rot-gut.
