"Since Donald Trump took office for the PBS news, Our Paul Psalm. Confirmation of Lloyd Austin as the first black U. S secretary of defense is a milestone. Nick Schifrin reports on how it also spotlights racial disparities at the highest level of the military ranks. Everybody. When Lloyd Austin arrived at the Pentagon today, he broke through what's been called the brass ceiling in a 40 year career. He was the first black officer to command a division in combat, the first black officer to command an entire theater of war and now the first black secretary of defense to hit every single one of those gates is incredible. S O. To me that is much like hitting the lottery. Irving Smith is a retired Army colonel and former West Point professor. He says the military provides opportunity for black enlisted troops to rise to positions like Sergeant, but to rise through the officer ranks like four star General Austin did. The barriers are systemic. He read in 1995, U. S Army War College Research Project. Why black officers Fail and 2010. He wrote a follow up. My black officers still fail. There's this thing called the good Old Boy Network. There's a system in the army that is very it's like nepotism that exists there. And as long as that persists, black officers will have a very hard time making it to the senior ranks in 1994 black soldiers were 27% of the army, but only 11% of the officers. 2007 black soldiers were 20% of the army, but only 12% of the officers today the problem persists. The Pentagon provided PBS news. Our data we analyzed for the entire military. Black service members are 16% of the military, but only 8% of its officers. White Service members are 55% of the military, but 72% of the officers Major problem. The lack of black mentor ship most of the African American officers were coming out of historically black colleges and those historically black colleges weren't providing. The mentorship up front. Where is the West Point? Cadets were getting the very best officers to teach them from day one, and so they weren't necessarily being given. The right guidance on the right assignments to take. That's a reference to the military's combat units where black Service members are 11% of the enlisted, but only 5% of the officers. White Combat Service members are 64% of the enlisted and 78% of the officers. In fact, in combat units, as the percentage of white officers rises with seniority, the percentage of black officers drops from 8% of second lieutenants down to 4% for colonels. In combat support units. Such a logistics, the disparity remains, but the numbers get better. Black service members are 20% of the enlisted and 10% of the officers, Smith says. That's indicative of black soldiers self selecting. I came into the army because I was going to do five years, get out and make a lot of money. Right if I fell in love with the army when I was in the army, and I found my calling when I was there, But my parents were like, Why did you go into the infantry? That was the dumbest thing you could do. Why didn't you go in the signal Corps where you could learn the work satellites and get a job. But you know, some big satellite company afterwards, Smith says young black soldiers who to support roles like Signal Corps limits the number of black officers who become generals. It's well known that A combat units was combat arms professions produced the senior leaders of the future. There is no justifiable reason. Or discrimination. The military is proud of its past efforts to fight racism. Thanks to a President Truman executive order. The military was one of the first American institutions to integrate black men have risen to its most senior ranks. Colin Powell, the first black chairman of the Joint Chiefs, and just last summer, Air Force general, CQ Brown, the first black service chief. But before he was confirmed, he posted a video about the racism that he experienced. I'm thinking about the pressure. I felt them perform error free, especially for supervisors I perceived had expected less for me as an African American. We can't just lay this on a black leader to say Go fish. This the Caucasian leaders of the services, you know, have to fix this issue have to really go after Admiral Mike Mullen was the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff from 2007 to 2011. Today, he voiced rare criticism of his successors. Do you believe that the current leadership across the military Has taken. This is a property. Con leadership of the military has not taken a priority, and I think the evidence is just in the numbers look at the lack of senior four stars in particular. Who are black or Hispanic. Mullen hired Austin to be the joint staff director. One day, Austin told his boss come downstairs to take a photo. Never before had so many senior black officers helped lead the joint staff and I said, What's all this? And that? And one of them said This is history, and every one of them had was doing an exceptional job for me to increase the percentage of black officers. Mullen says that old boy's network has to change from the lowest ranks. I've had this theory forever on these promotion boards. There's a phrase I used, You know, ducks pick ducks on these air dominate. These boards are dominated by Caucasian senior officers typically It's hard to break that, and this is a long term issue where you have to enlarge the pool there in order to expect to be able to promote patient that people toe admiral in general, Smith says commanders should be judged by the diversity of their staff and the climates they create, and that ROTC programs must be improved. He's confident that Secretary Austin conducive that This is a great occasion not for black America before America. If the same is I cannot be what I cannot see. Today. Every young service member can see him. For the PBS use our I'm next year for And.

"Now returning to President elect Biden's choice to run the Defense Department, retired Army General Lloyd Austin. Several candidates were much talked about for this post and Biden's pick has sparked a variety of reactions here Now Nick Schifrin for 40 years, Lloyd Austin was a barrier breaking soldier. The first black officer commanded division in combat and command the theater of war. He had some of the most difficult commands. Including Iraq before the 2011 US withdraw. It's going to take the Iraqi government, Iraqi people will continue to make the right decisions work together. President elect Biden worked with Austin in Iraq and attended the ceremony where Austin received command and the vice president's late son, Beau Biden, who died in 2015 served on Austin staff. Article today. Biden call's Austen calm under pressure and praised Austin's logistical success in withdrawing from Iraq. Biden says Austin will use those skills to quarterback covert vaccine logistics. Biden wrote their line strategically, and Austin's nomination was a quote milestone. This really is historic African Americans have served in higher numbers than the percentage of the population, United States. I'm show it zah about time. Dana Petard is a retired two star general who served with Austin in Iraq when they fought Isis. He's the author of the book Hunting the Caliphate. He had our forces with all of of our coalition allies. Fight Isis on numerous fronts. It took strategic vision and an operational approach to be able to pull that off. That was General Austin Austin also served in the Pentagon is the former Army vice chief of staff. He ran the day in and day out staff business in the Pentagon. So he has an intimate knowledge of things, at least on how the Pentagon should work as a senior leader. But Austin's domination has critics. He retired only 40 years ago and would therefore need a congressional waiver to serve is the civilian secretary of defense. Congress has only approved that waiver twice for former World War 25 Star General George Marshall and for President Trump's First Defense secretary James Mattis, Austin's predecessor, its Central command. In 2017, top Senate Armed services. Democrat Jack Reed supported Madison's waver but warned it was the last waving law should have a no more than once in a generation. Therefore, I will Not support a waiver for future nominees today read kept his options open during a windy interview. In all fantasy,.

This is a very historic day for our nation. I do not take this moment lightly. Today's possible due to the perseverance of those who went before me. Goes like this Key chairman Ben Jamal Davis Jr. Chappie, James Charles McGee. African American leaders across our air force in our military. Is due to their trials and tribulations in breaking bears that I can address you today as the Air Force chief of staff. Back in June, following the death of George, Florida at the hands of Minneapolis Police General Brown released an emotional, deeply personal video about his own experiences as an African American man in military officer. I'm thinking about my air force career. Where I was often the only African American in my squadron. There's a senior officer, the only African American in the room. I think about wearing the same flight suit with the same wings on my chest is my peers. The main question by another military member. Are you a pilot?

He was 85 when he died there from covert 19 complications. In April, Sky began the first half of his life in Malaysia.

This is just to improve our English. That's all that's what we were doing. That's Liane. Sam Tai was her childhood pen pal. He's from glaciers, and I am from in donation. They exchanged letters for years, getting to know each other but mostly just trying to practice their English as they grew up. They stopped writing letters. Leanne went to the US to further her education. And Chi went to Australia. So we both went separate ways. But the same reason 15 years went by. Kai settled in Toronto and heard that Leanne ended up in Chicago. He called her up to say he wanted to visit. The two had never met in person before he opened his passport. He said. You know, you have to believe me. This is me. I said Okay. I believe you have a picture in your passport. From then on. They started a new kind of correspondence. They talked on the phone and visited each other. Eventually, they fell in love in pairs. We ended up marrying each other. They had a son named Li in Chicago, Kai worked as a building inspector. He also worked on the Deep Tunnel, a massive infrastructure project to solve water pollution problems in Cook County. Fittingly, chi enjoyed collecting stamps. And every day he hung out with a group of friends in the back of a Chinatown bakery there six hours talking about I do not know. What is it? When he comes home. Oh, I had such a good meeting very easy questions and get to know he loves people period. Leon Sam says she can still picture Chi coming through the door to their home to this day. I still miss. I wish he was walking around and talking about jokes and You're not giving me some advice I between a basement flood and the chaos of the pandemic. Leanne doesn't know exactly where those original pen pal letters are right now. But what she does know is those letters were really just the beginning of a connection that spanned borders, oceans and more than half a century..

"Protesters since at least July 14. Now you need probable cause to two arrested somebody. It's not clear whether these arrests are arrests or detentions. People have been released is not like the walking them up in Guantanamo Bay and leaving them there. There's probably if I had to suggest a theory here is my theory that the feds have been monitoring a group of anti protesters for a long time. They have tape of them, and then they're going on arresting them when they're violating her few at night. Personal accounts in multiple videos posted online for the officers driving up to people detaining individuals with no explanation why they're being arrested and driving off. A tactic appears to be another escalation in federal force deployed in Portland City streets as federal officers and President Donald Trump has said they plan to quell nightly protests outside the federal courthouse and Multnomah County Justice Center that have lasted for more than six weeks. Federal officers of charge at least 13 people with crimes related to the protest so far that crimes related to the protest Their crimes of looting and rioting and violating the law. Others have been arrested and released, including Pettibone. They also left one demonstrator hospitalized with skull fractures after shooting him in the face with so called less lethal munitions. On July 11th officers from the US Marshal Special Ops Group and Customs and Border Protection have been sent to Portland to protect federal property. But interviews conducted by OBP show officers are also detaining people in Portland Street aren't near federal property, Nor is it clear that all the people being arrested have engaged in criminal activity. Well, if they are detained, and then they're released. That does happen from time to time. And when the police detain you, and then they release you, that is not technically an arrest by Supreme Court jurisprudence. Now, what is it? What, exactly Why's all this happening? If you just read that piece, you think? Well, these are peaceful protesters writing. That's all that's happening is peaceful, Peaceful Protesting. Yeah, That's not exactly what has been happening. You have terrorists are attempting to turn. I mean, look at these saves and looking like the defacement of public property. You can see what's happening here. Get that they're having to use tear gas on protest. On quote unquote protesters and looters are flinging objects at the cops. They're firing fireworks, literally firing fireworks at federal buildings. I mean, this is this is not peaceful protest, ng acting th s secretary Chad Wolf said in a statement earlier this week. The city of Portland has been under siege for 47 straight days by a violent mob, while local political leaders refused to restore order to protect their city each night. Wallis anarchist, destroy and desecrate property, including the federal courthouse and attacked the brave law enforcement officers protecting it. Said. Instead of addressing violent criminals in their communities, local and state leaders are instead focusing on placing blame on law enforcement and requesting fewer officers in their community. This failed response has only embolden the violent mob is it escalates violence day after day? D. H s and released an extensive list of violence caused by leftist protesters since basically the end of May. We're talking about graffiti. We're talking about assault mean that there's tape of antifa dragging fencing over toward the federal courthouse to try and set up their own chop, Chazz. In in Portland. So why? Why exactly? I hear they are right. Here they are. They've faced the federal court building and now they're dragging fencing over there to prevent the cops from coming in. Idiot white kids. It's a bunch of moron moron woke white liberals. For engaging in this sort of activity. It's criminal activity. And the locals refused to do their job and arresting criminals. And so the feds are coming and they're doing it. Which is legal. Which is legal. So the media's response has been Trump's fashion. This is the overwhelming response literally. Trump is a fascist was trending on Twitter. So if Trump enforces the law, he's a fascist from doesn't take over all aspects of America's Lock down policies. Then he is an incompetent. You guys gonna have to pick one? We're gonna have to pick the other. But again, it all comes down to the cops are the bad guys. Except the cops aren't the bad guys. There's one black officer from Portland who I mean, this is pretty moving stuff. Talked about the situation in Portland, he said. Basically, I want have conversation with some of the people who are protesting, and these white woke jackasses keep coming between me and the people that I'm talking to. And then calling me racist names. There was this. This black police officer from Portland. His name is Jackson. I got to see folks at I really do want change, like the rest of us that have been impacted by racism..

"That I think is an interesting that it's a bit like the mayor had has had that one program in In, you know, sort of early rounds the first year this past year that we were moving in this direction and what like with a lot of things. It seems to me like this present crisis of situation we're under has just accelerated what was already kind of evolving eventually. And that's absolutely true. You know, and I and I pointed it out before there's a lot the Seattle police Department and the mayor have done of the city. SPD has one of the best crisis intervention units. I've gone out and met with those guys. In fact, they were was this year Last year they were the The host for the National Convention for that type of policing, which not everybody in the country has, in fact fair if you have, so they're kind of the national leader. As far as that goes, they've made a lot of progress. It's not at the level of progress that everyone thinks is necessary. And that's why you see this current conversation going on but least, Dugard said, Absolutely. This was kind of something they envisioned possibly happening 10 years ago when this program started, all right. Hey, by the way, did you cover the police that are meeting over there? Ah to speak about the funding you on that wonder that was other group. I followed along with that I did, And that was the basically kind of a group of black police officers of it's an organization that they have in Seattle. That's been around for quite some time. And they wanted to talk about the de funding. And there was people came in kind of a city kind of teaching and more kind of listening and Some of the big takeaways I took away. There was one black officer who was talking about the criticism and and he said that he takes the most criticism from other black people in the community when he's out there being an officer And it wants to kind of again open that dialogue, really make sure that everybody understands the kind of policing that's going on. I understand that there are offers. Did you go to meet with youth in the community and engage with youth in the community and try to do their part, too? Close the gap. If you will, the distance between communities of color and police and tryto make it so both sides confessed one another again. There's there's actively things like that going on. No, I'm sorry. Good times has a nice little write up about that. They talked to this guy. He's a 44 year old who's always seen the enemy has seen the cops is something of The enemy that they've always has with him all his life and he was at this meeting and said, This is really good, he says. It's It's good for us to realize that the cops do Mohr than just the interaction they have with us, which they you may feel individually is unfair that they're all doing a lot of things with the youth programs and the like. So it's a kind of a I don't know how effective it is, he said. There were more cops of this meeting than there were community members, but still at least the people they profiled in Seattle times that, Yeah, This was a good outreach program that made them, you know, consider reconsider their their stance toward police. And I think that's important that you need to have both sides this thing to the other and and be willing to listen and not just hold firm understands their examples of you know terrible things like George Floyd, and they're definitely local examples. Recent local examples in the Puget Sound area that are, you know federal way about Malik Williams. There there many of these types of cases, but both sides have to be willing to listen to the other and realized That many officers are doing great things in the community. There's 10 million arrests a year. It's a very small fraction, 10th of a percent that gets into where you actually have. Additional problems at the time of the arrest in Seattle leads the way of most cities in the United States with and this goes even back to a study of 2000 that they compared all those cities about the same size and they found Seattle When it came Tio, using a use of force was leading the way in not actually pushing too much pressure on the individuals being arrested, but Again that those air fax and those don't always have a place in the conversation. I read something I thought was pretty interesting regarding authority. And they said What is the difference? I hear you sniff in time you get into the next yourself there. When a parent starts to scream and yell at the referee during a football game or an empire being yelled at a little league game. What happens is the kids begin to not pay attention or respect the umpire or the referee. So controlling the parents from yelling helps to control the Children's behavior on the field regarding the authority figure. So if you go into a game, and the parent yells at the authority figure than the kid has no respect for the authority figure, and they say that same thing translates into a black community. The reason the person being stopped by the cop is less likely to obey the rules of that police officer because they start off in the car with little or right. No respect for that police officer to begin with. Now whether the officer deserves it or not the person in the car this comes in with a bias against the officer. So when the officer asked for compliance, they're less likely to comply..
