White Male Club Still Exists in Military

According to a military training manual, the “White Male Club” still exists, complete with privileges and advantages that the other sex and races don’t have.

Not only does it still exist, but white people, especially white males, are in denial about it and continually make excuses for the upper hand that they’ve been dealt. Never mind the fact that they may have actually worked hard and earned whatever achievements they have .

I wish I could tell you that this is simply someone’s opinion, but it’s actually based on excerpts taken from a 637-page training manual created by the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute (DEOMI) and currently in use on military installations all over the U.S. The manual was sent to a reporter from an instructor in the United States Air Force, so we know for a fact that it’s in use there.

Take a look at the linked article. There are numerous quoted excerpts that will blow your mind. As a white male I’m wondering, when do I get my privilege and advantage?
