    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)....

    ...he 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.”

    The DEOMI is a stupid organization. But they did get the code words for race part right. You can deny it to the grave. But it is what it is.

    And the code word thing is the dumbest thing in all the world. All it does is keep people unnecessarily suspicious and create unnecessary hostility without a shred of evidence. It is nothing more than a tool to gain political power. Anyone who buys into that junk is just as brainwashed as they are trying to do to the military.

    Seems as though the prosecution can rest ...

    Yeah, I can deny it, and I do.
