Undoubtedly, the Democrat Party is the party of Racism, Slavery, Secession, and anti-civil-rights legislation.
The Democrat Party has traditionally exploited Blacks, and yet they portray themselves as the benefactor of blacks with their progressive communist democrat-promoted programs – from which they siphon off a significant amount of any allocated funding. One walk around the Democrat-governed inner cities proves the obvious – billions have been diverted while illiteracy, poverty, disease, and crime flourish.
The Democrat Party goes on and on about institutional racism, hoping people will ignore that the Democrats control the institutions in the most afflicted areas.
The face of institutional racism…
Systemic racism, or institutional racism, refers to how policies, practices, and norms of social institutions such as governments, corporations, and schools, among others, create and perpetuate inequalities and injustices based on race.
The not-so-subtle influence of Democrats on systemic racism in the Navy…
Navy lowers entrance exam requirements in bid to get more recruits
As the military struggles to attract new recruits, the Navy on Monday began a pilot program that will let in those with lower scores on part of the entrance exam to gauge a recruit's ability to serve.
Potential sailors are required to take the Armed Forces Qualification Test, or AFQT, to determine whether they are qualified to serve, as part of the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery, better known as the ASVAB.
Under the Navy's pilot program, the service will accept lower scores on the AFQT, between the 10th and 30th percentile, as long as the prospective sailor's ASVAB individual line scores are still high enough to qualify for a Navy rating.
"The change means that prospective Sailors who have high enough ASVAB line scores to qualify for a Navy rating will not be held back by a low AFQT score, which can vary relative to how their peers did on the test," Navy Recruiting Command spokesman Cmdr. David Benham said in an email.
An individual's qualifications for various Navy ratings are based on 10 different ASVAB scores that help the service identify where a sailor would best fit within the fleet. Benham said that such job determinations are not based on their overall AFQT score.
"To qualify for enlistment, the individual must still meet the minimum line score requirement for a given Navy rating," Benham said. "These ASVAB line score requirements are unchanged by this policy and not waiverable." <Source>
It does not go unnoticed…
For those of you who are not familiar with the Vietnam Era, this was tried by LBJ in 1966 with Project 100,000, which lowered the minimum required score for the Armed Forces Qualification Test. It was a disaster. The newly qualified soldiers were slow learners, routinely incompetent and undisciplined, and in combat were dangerous to themselves and their comrades. Their fatality rate was three times that of soldiers who met the previous qualification standard.
You can get the details in a book titled "McNamara's Folly."
That the Navy is doing it again after that experience, in an era when cognitive demands of military service are higher than they were 50 years ago, is gross negligence towards those who are already serving and damaging to national security. <Source>
Lowering entrance or promotion standards is a classic example of institutional racism – an action based on equity -- which is detrimental to our national security and deadly to those in combat. Even worse is a promotion based on equity and unofficial racial quotas, which cripple our leadership and create dangerous situations. It is also institutionally unfair to an individual, much like admitting an underprepared person to a prestige college where they are doomed to failure, frustration, and possibly worse.
The military should be exempt from social engineering and allowed to train to break things and kill our enemies without restrictions. Preparing to fight tomorrow's wars instead of yesterday's wars. Everything should be done to retain qualified experienced personnel, not replace them with challenged newbies who damage effectiveness and dilute institutional knowledge.
God protect the Chief Petty Officers, the bearers of knowledge, experience, and wisdom.
We are so screwed.
The Armed Forces Qualification Tests (ASVAB, PiCAT, and AFCT) are made up of nine sections. Each section's score achieved will produce its own line score used when determining eligibility for specific jobs and programs. The ASVAB section topics are:
Verbal (VE) is not a separate section of the ASVAB. VE is your raw WK+PC scores compared to a table associated with your test version.
The minimum line scores for each rating and program eligibility are determined by the Bureau of Naval Personnel using many factors including the specific "A" school academic drop-out rates.
The line scores defined on this page are for ASVAB tests taken after 2004. The ASVAB was normalized in 2004 based on the results of the Profile of American Youth study conducted in 1997 (PAY97) by the Department of Defense and the Department of Labor.
For those wishing to see the scores necessary for each of the Navy's ratings, it can be found at PAY97 ASVAB line score requirement for each Navy rating and program.
Retail Services Specialist - VE+AR= 83
Logistics Specialist - VE+AR=92 (The Logistics Specialist rating was established as a result of the merger of the Storekeeper (SK), and Postal Clerk (PC) ratings in October 2009. )
Missile Technician Submarine - AR+MK+VE+AO=218 or VE+AR+MK+MC=218
