Political Correctness Causes Death At The Naval Academy
The death of integrity, that is

This is really disgusting. But hey, the gods of Political Correctness must be fed. Even someplace that's suppose to extol the virtue of integrity. Yeah... right.

Here's some of the article from Fox News; (Emphasis mine)
Naval Academy Changed Color Guard to Appear More Diverse at World Series
Thursday, November 12, 2009

Naval Academy leaders are under fire after altering the composition of the military color guard at a World Series game last month so the group wouldn't be made up only of white men.

The Navy Times and other media reported that two white midshipmen were removed from the performance in New York City and replaced with a Pakistani-American man and a white woman so the group would appear more diverse.

Capt. Matthew Klunder, commandant of midshipmen, disputed that version of events. He said he considered replacing two members but decided to add two extra people instead, expanding the group from six to eight members.

Only six people ended up participating in the Game 2 routine at Yankee Stadium, Klunder said, because one of the two additions — Midshipman 2nd Class Zishan Hameed — forgot parts of his uniform.
Talk about poetic justice.

By the way, the total number (as already mentioned in the article) was six. Stay with me here... the initial number was six. That was increased to eight (to include the White gal and the guy of Pakistani blood). But as we see in this video, there are in fact, six color guard members.

That means that when Midshipman Hameed was replaced by one of the original men who was bumped... right? One would think.

But there is still a young lady in the Color Guard.

That means that one of the men who was originally on the detail did, in fact, get bumped simply because he's a White male.

This happened in the early 90's to white, male Field Grades. They got forced to early retire even if they had stellar records and it was all reverse discrimination because the Army didn't have enough blacks in the upper echelons of the ranks.

Same thing happened with the Old Guard up in DC.

I can think of other things that have been changed to fit into the politically correct crap in the name of diversity. (and so far, the only one I see that I do agree with is the opening of the military academies to women)
