The U.S. Army at the Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth is teaching officers in intermediate level education (ILE) that white people can’t experience racism, defining racism as “a complex system of believes and behaviors that result in the oppression of people of color and benefit the dominant group.”
The definition of racism is taught in an elective course called “Race and Gender in U.S. Military History,” which is available for up to 32 students each year. The course is taught by Angela Riotto, an assistant professor at the college, according to TRMLX, who first reported on the course.
The course description states that “an effective military only functions under the principles of equality and inclusion.”
“Manpower policy regarding inclusion and equality has only changed when forced to by the necessities of war or from outside social and political influence,” it continues. “This course will examine the history of service of minority groups and women in the U.S. Military, major amendments to manpower policy, and historic problems with presenting a less than unified force.”

We need to train soldiers to not attack the enemies if they are people of color.
How did communists take over our military?
The “white people can’t experience racism” trope is shorthand for “It’s OK to hate white people.”
America became such a joke so quickly
military experience? Angela Riotto received her Ph.D. from the University of Akron. Her research examines the ways in which both U.S. and Confederate former prisoners of war discussed their captivity between 1862 and 1930. She worked as a historian with the Army University Press Films Team, developing documentaries to teach military history and U.S. Army doctrine.
What name are they using to describe race based discrimination towards white people?
the narratives become more false and the hate even greater-it is the story of every totalitarian regime.
They better hope none of the troops ever get posted to, say, Japan...
This is doing real harm.
We had a local boy graduate West Point recently. He went in fine and came out messed up because of just such as this.
“US Army teaching officers at Fort Leavenworth that white people can’t experience racism”
Which is itself racist.
As a white man from Alabama who live a large part of his life in China, I call BS on this.
That’s exactly what it means.
and if you disagree, prolly an NJP at best...
Every govt program is anti white male.
Any black person who teaches that white people are bad is a racist. Period!
They have been doing that since the 80s.
I am career military. Ditto my brother, our father, and grandfathers. My son who joined The Young Marines at 8 years old has wanted to follow in our family tradition.
We have been witnessing and discussing this exact issue for a few years. He decided he does not want anything to do with today’s Woke military. He did not make this decision without a good deal of forethought. He made this decision with great sadness. I sadly concurred with his decision.
“The definition of racism is taught in an elective course called “Race and Gender in U.S. Military History,”
Elective now. Mandatory later.
