Air Force Investigation Finds Black Personnel Are Subject to More Disciplinary Action, Face Numerous Racial Disparities
I think it's safe to say that we live in a post-George Floyd world. Floyd's tragic, violent death sparked a nationwide reckoning of racial injustice in nearly every field, including the armed forces. An investigation launched shortly after Floyd's death found that black members of the U.S. Air Force were more likely to be disciplined and have widespread differences.
According to the NPR, a 150-page report by the Air Force Inspector General found that Black Air Force employees were 72 percent more likely to face extrajudicial punishment under the Uniform Military Justice Code than their white counterparts. The review was ordered on June 2, just days after George Floyd died in custody of a group of Minneapolis police officers.

Over 123,000 current Air Force employees responded to the Inspector General's survey. Results showed that 2 out of 5 black service members do not trust their chain of command to adequately address cases of racism or bias. 3 in 5 black service members believe they cannot get the same benefit from the doubt that their white counterparts have when it comes to disciplinary action.
The report also found differences in several areas, including criminal investigation, promotion rates and leadership opportunities. The report did not address the causes of the differences. The aim was to complete the report within 120 days and to identify “would have taken considerably more time”.
I mean, if I had to guess the root cause, it would be the fact that we live in an inherently racist society. The civil rights law is only 56 years old. Racism was what this whole country was built on. I'm just saying that "the root kernel" of all of this is pretty darn obvious.
Just look at the racist hellhole that the Virginia Military Institute is, and it's pretty easy to put two and two together. Add to that the fact that the military has still not adequately addressed the issue of white supremacists in the armed forces, and is it really that surprising that the Air Force has the same racial problem that almost every damn business in America has ?
Is it a bummer Of course, but America was nothing if not endless crap.
The review tasked Air Force leadership to develop actionable measures to address the differences highlighted in the report and to schedule follow-up reviews to ensure the changes are implemented.
"We are analyzing the root causes and taking appropriate action to address these challenges," said General Charles Q. Brown Jr., chief of staff of the Air Force, in a statement. "Now we all need to drive meaningful, lasting and sustainable change."
