Careerist General Bravely Denounces “White Racism”
Introduction by David Sims: The controlled media are abuzz with the news that five USAF cadets at the Air Force Academy reported racial slurs written on their doors.
Not one of those news sources have mentioned the possibility that the slurs are hoaxes, most likely drawn by members of the group identified in the slur itself.
Tawana Brawley (Black) made false rape accusations against police officers. Crystal Gayle Mangum (Black) made false rape accusations against student members of the Duke University Lacrosse Team. Sarah Marshak (Jewish) was caught drawing swastikas on dormitory doors at George Washington University. Kerri Dunn (White liberal) vandalized her own car and tried to blame it on “racists” who didn’t even exist.
By a wide margin, most overt racial slurs are hoaxes. I can scarcely believe that Lt. General Jay Silveria is so gullible that he actually thinks that the recent anti-Black scrawling on the doors of five Black cadets was actually put there by a “White racist.” Although it is possible, history teaches us that it isn’t the smart way to bet.
But actually, no, I don’t believe that Silveria is that gullible. I think that he has decided to use the racial graffiti as a career opportunity, as a chance to show what a great egalitarian he is. Perhaps he thinks this will pave his way to a fourth star, or to a political career after he retires from the USAF.
EVERY TIME America seems to be moving forward on race issues, we are brought up short by overt acts of discrimination and hatred. It never seems to end.
It happened again last week when hateful, hurtful messages were left on the message boards outside the dorm rooms of five Black cadet candidates at the U.S. Air Force Academy’s Preparatory School, telling them “go home n****r.” This at a school for young people hoping soon to be joining the ranks of America’s most elite.
It was too much for Lt. Gen. Jay Silveria, superintendent of the Air Force Academy, where the prep school is located. Silveria, who is White, addressed the academy’s 4,000 cadets and 1,500 faculty and staff on Thursday, saying, “If you’re outraged by those words then you’re in the right place.
“You should be outraged not only as an airman, but as a human being.”
It is a speech that should be played in every board room, every office, every school at every level across the country. In less than five minutes, Gen. Silveria made very clear what the goals and ideals of this great nation must be.
The general made it clear that the incident affected everyone, not just the five cadet candidates targeted at the prep school: “Some of you may think that that happened down at the prep school and doesn’t apply to us.
“I would be naïve, and we would all be naïve, to think that everything is perfect here.”
But Silveria made it clear that the hatred displayed at the prep school affected not only the Air Force Academy. He linked the slurs to event in Charlottesville, Virginia, where a march by self-proclaimed White supremacists turned violent, and to Ferguson, Missouri, where a Black teenager was murdered by White police officer. He said it would be “tone deaf” to think the racist rantings at the prep school are unrelated to racial tensions across the country. …
