No, the microaggression was NOT mentioning somethings are unacceptable/incompatible with military service.
No, the microaggression was NOT mentioning Michael Jordan in a positive light.
Yes, the microaggression was mentioning black thug culture in a negative light because, as you really should know by now, ANY critical reference to the behavior, viewpoints, speech, or politics of one of the favored underclass is inherently biased/bigoted/racist. I don’t know if Master Sergeant Parrish is black or not l, but it would make no difference because microaggressions can be generated at the subconscious level and, any way, occur solely based on whether or not the receiving party’s feelings are hurt.
By the way, the receiving party is any member of the favored underclass (or their self appointed and empowered, spittle spewing “allies” from the “woke” privileged class) from now until the end of time. Consequently, if you have written anything, anything at all, no matter how long ago or under what particular context or circumstance, that could be taken, even in the most extreme exaggeration, as being offensive, it is the same as if you had just said it with full malicious intent to offend.
According to this viewpoint, once guilty of even one such offense, the offending party is a bigot and the only acceptable remedy is immediate apology and permanent withdrawal from further public life. I have a feeling that the Vice Commandant apologized because the Master Sergeant would not. The announced “staff training” is nothing more than a 1970’s era Maoist “self-criticism” session dressed up in new clothes.
Afterwards, those deemed insufficiently repentent (or not repentent at all) will be removed for reeducation. Master Sergeant Parrish is about to get a bad fitness report and PCS orders for using insensitive language while calling out cadets for not abiding by Air Force grooming regulations.
It is said that the fish rots from the head down. The Air Force Academy is where many of the service’s future leaders are born/educated. Let us hope that the PC culture currently infecting it has not matasticized to the larger community of AFROTC units on the nation’s college campuses. The outlook is not good as Air Force leadership was been hosting a massive infection of liberalism for a long time.
