West Point - It Takes Us All (White males apparently not so much.)
West Point Superintendent's Annual Fund ^ | March 27, 2013

Posted on 03/27/2013 1:58:08 PM PDT by robowombat

I received this e-mail today from the Superintendent's Annual Fund. Unfortunately one cannot copy the page but it consists of the usual pitch to contribute to the Superintendent's Annual Fund to help maintain the 'margin of excellence'. By which, I suppose it provides private funds for items not covered by the federal government. What is interesting is that two of the four cadets closest to the camera in the massed shot of Cadets in BDU's are black and the one Cadet given full profile shot is a female. Apparently the USMA notion of 'all of us' consists of 'some of us' being more equal than others.

A few years back I saw a military recruiting ad that featured a soldier who looked like a Hispanic of neutral gender (probably a woman). The point is that someone glancing at it would not know the race/gender of the soldier. And that was probably that way on purpose.

I occasionally get stuff from my alma mater.

If you were to believe the promotional materials, the College of Engineering is 99% female. Which is strange, because it was the exact opposite while I was there, and further reinforced by my observations since I obtained gainful employment in the technical field.

Go to just about any government website and you’ll see the same thing.

That is pretty much standard today.

One will almost never see an advertisement or any media in which minorities are not in fact the majority. There are certain things which you can almost expect.

An intelligent Black man, a stupid ugly White guy. A dumb blonde plus add in a few other odds minorities.

The current rage seems to be White female and Black male. Sports shows really go all the way. Since there already are lots of Black players, there is often 3 or 4 Black guys with maybe one White color guy.

I think Asian and Hispanics may actually be nearly as under represented as Whites.

If you have Windows 7 you can use the Snipping Tool to capture an image of anything you can see on your monitor.

To find it go to Start and then in the Search Bar (kust above the Start button) type in “Snipping Tool” and you’ll see it. Follow the brief directions: “Drag the cursor around the area you want to capture” and let go of your mouse button.

Export or save the image as you wish. :)

Your link doesn't work. But with a little tinkering it did.

I guess it depends on the picture.

These don't seem strange or anti-White to me.

This one some people may have a problem with:

But there's always going to be one picture of just women.

“An intelligent Black man, a stupid ugly White guy. A dumb blonde plus add in a few other odds minorities.”

I thought that sentence was going to end with; “all walk into a bar.”

Suggested punchline: Who wins the fight? The ugly White guy — he brought the gun. ;>)

Unfortunately, I cannot send the page that arrived in my e-mail box. Those who get the mailings from the USMA Alumni Association got it. Perhaps one of them can transfer this page and post it.

I think you’re looking for any excuse not to donate.

I already threw it away. I throw most of them away.
