Pentagon Training Manual: White Males Have Unfair Advantages

by Todd Starnes

A controversial 600-plus page manual used by the military to train its Equal Opportunity officers teaches that "healthy, white, heterosexual, Christian" men hold an unfair advantage over other races, and warns in great detail about a so-called "White Male Club."

“Simply put, a healthy, white, heterosexual, Christian male receives many unearned advantages of social privilege, whereas a black, homosexual, atheist female in poor health receives many unearned disadvantages of social privilege,” reads a statement in the manual created by the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute (DEOMI).

The manual, which was obtained by Fox News, also instructs troops to “support the leadership of people of color. Do this consistently, but not uncritically,” the manual states.

The military manual goes into great detail about a so-called “White Male Club.”

The Equal Opportunity Advisor Student Guide is the textbook used during a three month DEOMI course taught at Patrick Air Force Base in Florida. Individuals who attend the training lead Equal Opportunity briefings on military installations around the nation.

The 637-page manual covers a wide range of issues from racism and religious diversity to cultural awareness, extremism and white privilege.

I obtained a copy of the manual from an Equal Opportunity officer who was disturbed by the course content and furious over the DEOMI’s reliance on the Southern Poverty Law Center for information on “extremist” groups.

“I’m participating in teaching things that are not true,” the instructor told me. He asked not to be identified because he feared reprisals.

“I should not be in a position to do that,” he said.“It violates Constitutional principles, but it also violates my conscience. And I’m not going to do it – not going to do it.”

Read an excerpt from the manual here.

DEOMI instructors were also responsible for briefings at bases around the country that falsely labeled evangelical Christians, Catholics and a number of high-profile Christian ministries as domestic hate groups.

I contacted the Pentagon as well as the DEOMI multiple times for comment on this story, but so far they have not responded to my requests.

DEOMI opened in 1971 in response to the civil rights movement. It’s responsible for Equal Opportunity/Equal Employment Opportunity education and training for military active duty and reservists, according to its website.

The subject of white privilege emerged in a 20-page section titled,“Power and Privilege.”

“Whites are the empowered group,” the manual declares.“White males represent the haves as compared to the have-nots.”

The military document advises personnel to “assume racism is everywhere, every day” and “notice code words for race.” They are also instructed to “understand and learn from the history of whiteness and racism.”

“Assume racism is everywhere, everyday,” read a statement in a section titled,‘How to be a strong 'white ally.'"

“One of the privileges of being white is not having to see or deal with racism all the time,” the manual states.“We have to learn to see the effect that racism has.”

On page 181 of the manual, the military points out that status and wealth are typically passed from generation to generation and “represent classic examples of the unearned advantages of social privilege.”

“As such, the unfair economic advantages and disadvantages created long ago by institutions for whites, males, Christians, etc. still affect socioeconomic privilege today,” the manual states.

The guide also points out that whites are over-represented and blacks are underrepresented in positive news stories, that middle class blacks live in poorer neighborhoods than middle class whites and that even though there are more white criminals than any other race, the news coverage of black criminals is about equal to the news coverage of white criminals.

The military manual goes into great detail about a so-called “White Male Club.”

“In spite of slave insurrections, civil war, the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments, the women’s suffrage movement leading to the 19th amendment, the civil rights movement, urban rebellions and the contemporary feminist movement, the club persists,” the document states.

DEOMI states that “full access to the resources of the club still escape the vision of equitable distribution.”

The military also implies that white Americans may be in denial about racism.

In a section titled,“Rationalizations for Retaining Privilege and Avoiding Responsibilities,” the military lays out excuses white people use.

“Today some white people may use the tactic of denial when they say,‘It’s a level playing field; this is a land of equal opportunity,’” the manual reads.“Some white people may be counterattacking today by saying political correctness rules the universities or they want special status.”

DEOMI points out that if “white people are unable to maintain that the atrocities are all in the past, they may switch to tactics to make a current situation seem isolated.”

They said some of the ways whites may claim to be victims include saying things like,“I have it just as bad as anyone else,”“They’re taking away our jobs,” or “White people are under attack.”

The military concludes the section by urging students to “understand and learn from the history of whiteness and racism” and “support the leadership of people of color.”

I called former Congressman and Lt. Col. Allen West (ret.) to get his take on the manual. In a nutshell – he wants a congressional investigation.

“This is the Obama administration’s outreach of social justice into the United States military,” he told me.“Equal Opportunity in the Army that I grew up in did not have anything to do with white privilege.”

West said he is very concerned about the training guide.

“When the president talked about fundamentally transforming the United States of America, I believe he also had a dedicated agenda of going after the United States military,” he said.“The priorities of this administration are totally whacked.”

West said the DEOMI manual reminded him of a similar program inflicted on the military by President Clinton.

“They came down with a new training requirement called,‘Consideration of Others Training,’” he said.“The soldiers were supposed to sit around and go through vignettes and talk about their feelings.”

I truly wish the Pentagon and the DEOMI would return my telephone calls. I’d like to know how teaching soldiers, airmen and sailors about white privilege and fomenting racial division helps them protect our nation from the enemy.

Good post, Tipster...but you hit a nerve and got me started.

FACT: The most discriminated group in the USA today ARE white males.

Any government contract that goes out for bid, companies owned a minority get a automatic 25% disount off the top. The white male owned compnay hs to come in with a bid of -26% to even be considered!

And many times, the minority firm can't do the job correctly so tey run WAY over cost and we taxpayers pay or it.

Get bb's thoughts on this BS. Afirmative action run amuck.

Sorry for any spelling errors. Eyes are dilated now...much like my temper!

I'm not mocking Mr. Starnes, or denigrating him whatsoever. He is not a journalist.

He is in bed with the AFA. A shill for their agenda.

Look into it Tippy.

Oh wait a minute Tippy. I did call him a fat fckr. I suppose that could be construed as denigrating since it really has nothing to do with the fact that he's not a journalist.

I apologize for that.

Non-white, Non-Christian, Non-Hetero Male Song

I could while away the hours, conferrin' with the flowers
Consultin' with the rain.
And my head I'd be scratchin' while
my thoughts were busy hatchin'
If I only had a brain.
I'd unravel every riddle for any individ'le,
In trouble or in pain.
With the thoughts you'll be thinkin'
you could be another Lincoln
If you only had a brain.
Oh, I could tell you why The ocean's near the shore.
I could think of things I never thunk before.
And then I'd sit, and think some more.
I would not be just a nothin' my head all full of stuffin'
My heart all full of pain.
I would dance and be merry, life would be a ding-a-derry,
If I only had a brain.

If the DoD were more thorough it would have included all of the characteristics of the oppressor classes of diversity (aka victim cult) people:

white (oppress black)
male (oppress female)
gringo (oppress latin and hispanic)
straight (oppress queer)
gentile or christian (oppress jewish)
healthy (oppress disabled)
occidental (oppress asian)

There is no such thing existing as white male straight christian privilege. A privilege is a legal benefit granted by central government to a person or class of persons. Diversity retards often refer to white straight christian male privilege because they are self-serving, and are projecting their desire for more legal privilege onto their oppressor counterparts. Diversity people imagine there is legal privilege for oppressor class people because they don't know the difference between a legal privilege, which they receive in over abundance, and private organizational smarts.

The bigger joke is how queers and jewish play the victim card. These peculiar diversity people are some of the richest mofo's in the US and Israel, but you'd never know that fact because they don't want you to know, and they run the mass media to keep you ignorant.

Privilege hungry diversity fruitcakes are a super-majority of the voting populace, both in the US and Israel.

Now if we could just get Tippy to admit the fact that Mr. Starnes is intimately connected (hear that Paco?) to the AFA, and stop presenting Mr. Starnes' opinion pieces as factual, we would make some progress here.

Actually, the Natives here were living quite well before the Europeans got here.

Not that that lifestyle could have continued forever, given the circumstances, but the fact of the matter is that the Europeans kinda screwed them over.

They didn't teach you that in school?

Well, the problem there for some people seems to be which God to follow.

For others, they seem to think you're full of shiit.

Quite the conundrum, I suppose, given the fact that the US Constitution provides lots of avenues in that regard.
