Once upon a time, I remember instructors shouting at candidates "SHAKE YOUR HEAD DOPEY! DO YOU HEAR ANYTHING? NO? WELL, I‘M NOT SURPRISED - THERE‘S NOTHING BETWEEN YOUR EARS!!!"
Institutional racism? For Pete‘s sake - give it a rest.
The Army has been self-flagellating itself long enough - let‘s move forwards (in other words, I‘m sick and tired of this " oh so politically correct McCarthyism").
In a good Army, all soldiers and officers will be treated as they deserved to be treated - no more, no less.
Furthermore, if one discovers evidence of racism or any other offence they should report it - to the police, to the Ombudsman, to their superiors, to their mommy ... whatever.
And, if there is no evidence of racism, let‘s get on with life - there are plenty of other problems to be tackled, without resurrecting bogus ones.
Okay? I hope this inane thread will now die a silent death.
SIgn me "Somebody sick and tired of witch hunts".
P.S. Happy Valentine‘s Day
