For Air Force Leader, Making Video On Racism He's Faced Was 'The Right Thing To Do'

"General Lloyd Austin is confirmed as the next secretary of defense, He'll be the first African American to hold that position. His nomination comes as the U. S military, like much of the rest of the country is grappling with issues of race after the killing of George Floyd and the protests that followed. Which brings us to another general Charles Que Brown. Over the summer, he became the first African American to lead a branch of the U. S military. He is the chief of staff for the Air Force. As his confirmation hung in the balance. General Brown chose to speak out about George Floyd's death, even if it cost him his promotion. Here's an excerpt from that video message released in July when he was still Pacific Air Force's commander. Think about how awful I am with emotion, not just for George Floyd. But the many African Americans that have suffered the same fate as George Boyd. I'm thinking about protests in my country. Tis of thee sweet Land of liberty. Equality expressing Arctic exploration of independence and the Constitution that I've sworn my adult life to support the fan. Thinking about a history of racial issues in my own experiences that didn't always sing of liberty and equality. I asked General Brown why he needed to deliver that message. I talked to one of our sons. Who was he went to Washington Mercy in ST Louis s O. His freshman year was Ferguson. And so he experienced that. And then he lives here in Washington, D. C and he He called us and he was. He was kind of struggling. With Things were going on. And so, um He asked me in the conversation. Hey, Hey, Dad. What is specific Air force is going to say, and as a commander, Pacific Air forces That was kind of code to me of Dad. What are you going to say? So on Tuesday, when I confirmation didn't come through. I was committed, then that discordant and do the video. And so was my own personal experiences, but, you know, thinking about her two sons. And their experiences and so that actually was what got me to do it. Did you tell your superiors Uh, no. I felt like, you know. I got to a point where because of talking to my son. I thought it was the right thing to do. You are now the highest ranking African American in the U. S. Military. How do you use that position to make it So the younger version of yourself isn't the only one in the room. How do you Increase opportunities for air men and women of color. Rachel. I think it's about being a role model. It's about how I carry myself on a day to day basis so that those that They're more dinner to make can can look up and see somebody they want to aspire to be, like, ideally, so what actions will be necessary? I mean, it's one thing to be unexamined well to be a role model, and that's important. But what changes what policy changes do you think need to be made? I mean, is I understand that there was an inspector general report. Looking into how racism could affect promotions in the Air Force, and hundreds of thousands of our men and women were also surveyed about diversity issues. What actions do those results point to The data actually shows that you know there are areas where based on What career feels ERM and go into made either help or hurt their opportunity to rise to more senior ranks. And so it's how we pay attention to recruiting in placing Eman of diverse backgrounds and specific career feels It's also looking at someone requires. We have a career Phyllis to understand. Do they have some type of barrier that we have not paid attention to? Because that's the way it's always been. The other thing we were also looking to do is how do we work in closely managed those of a diverse background and what I mean by that is just really take a look at the opportunities to prepare them for those positions to consider them. For positions and not make it just the situation. We hope it all works out, but it takes purposeful leadership in engagement to ensure that we are actually bringing the best. For all over me. There are more than 12,000 active duty pilots in the Air Force, according to data compiled by McClatchy News Service on Lee. About a dozen of them are black women. Do you see that as a problem? Do you only aspire to what you've been exposed to? You know, sometimes we might self eliminate just because we don't think we're qualified. So one of the areas that we have an air force is looking at is how do we provide more exposure? To young African Americans. Women really across the board. That? Yes, you could do this. And here's what it takes to get there I often say is We all need to ask what we wanna be able to. The worst air force can do is tell, you know, but if you don't ask, we can't say yes. So we want to put those that want to be part of our air force in a position where we can say yes. Let me ask you about this current moment in our political history in this country, the transition between one administration and another is actually critical to the national security. Are you convinced that the current civilian leadership at the Pentagon is committed to a smooth and responsible transfer of power? I think we're all working to a smooth transition of power. Both civilian and military and the Our job is to maintain our national security. And no matter who which administration our community chief we have, and that's that's my job as a service chief is a joint chief, and our goal is to make sure that we don't have a Any type of security incident in a peaceful transition of power like we've found throughout our history. You have any concerns that there would be? I mean, is it going to plan right now? The transition from your perspective. E think are now securities and is in is Not being threat right now, but realize that also that We're always we don't we have one side of the boat and the other side of the voters are our adversaries, and that's something as a as a service season, 25 play close attention to what the other joint chiefs to ensure that We have a good sense of what's going on around the world as well. Let me ask about the man who could become The next secretary of defense, retired army General Lloyd Austin. I assume you've You've come across one another once or twice. What's he like? Is the leader. He's a strong leader. I think he's decisive. I I enjoyed working for him and he listens. Which I think is an important aspect as a leader, and he's willing to take input from those around him. If confirmed, General Austin will join you in making history this year by becoming the first African American to lead the Department of Defense. What will it mean to you and your serviceman to see him sworn into that job? I think for any one of a diverse black man. When you see someone who rises to a key position, you take a bit of pride in it. You appreciate it, and it also opens an opportunity that where you now think about your own career path, there's opportunities of the head. Chief of staff of the Air Force. General Charles Que Brown, Jr. Thank you

"Or via my three hundred affiliates it is great to have you I'm joined by lieutenant general David up to a retired United States Air Force is the dean of the Mitchell answered for Arab era space studies and normally I talk with the general about matters of national defense today I'm going to do the same thing but in a slightly different way because in a nice coming together of news and specialty I want to talk to him about general Charles Q. brown the new Air Force chief of staff good morning general depth to allow aria Hey good morning Hugh are you doing today I'm great deal no general Charles you brown yes I do matter of fact I gnome pretty well would you this is a historic milestone the first African American chairman joint chiefs of a service branch would you explain to people what the chief of staff is why it is important Erin who general brown is sure that's the in a nutshell the actually it's not in a nut shell because it's a relatively complex more so than people tend to think but the chief of the service in this case the chief of staff of the United States Air Force is the senior uniformed officer of that service in is responsible for organizing training and equipping the men and women of their particular service to provide it the components to the combatant commands who actually do the fighting for the United States in conjunction with the U. S. national security goals and objectives are too many people still even today believe that this service chiefs actually command forces in combat in that's not true now that might be getting into a little bit too much detail but I think it's important to delineate the difference between the military service leaders the leaders of the army navy Air Force marines and space force in the combatant commanders but they are the senior most person in this services they set policy they set standards they set a big goals in the context of what their particular service contributes to the national security strategy they are in charge of the acquisition of the military weapons and systems that each of the services provided so it is an enormous responsibility the uniformed Air Force consists of about three hundred in twenty to three hundred and thirty thousand in personnel but then when you add the civilians who work for the department of the Air Force as well as the guard in reserve forces you're talking upwards of over six hundred thousand people so it's an enormous responsibility so there in a nutshell is a description of what this service leader on the uniform side does now with respect to general brown I can tell you in a very short summary that Joe brown is a straight shooter he's got the experience the talent the drive in that perspective to be a great Air Force chief of staff quite frankly he's he's quite simply the the right man at the right time to be the airforce chief of staff he's a little bit about his background he has commanded a fighter squadron the U. S. Air Force weapons school which by the way is like a graduate school for fighter pilots in those who occupy the operator positions in not just fighters but the bombers transports space all the different were fighting elements in the airforce he's commanded to fighter wings in he's been the commander of US air forces Central Command that the airforce component to U. S. Central Command which commands all the forces in the Middle East that have been involved in in the fights in Iraq and Afghanistan and prior to his current assignment is the commander of US air forces in the Pacific he served as the deputy commander U. S. Central Command so he let let me just say I am sorry for going on but I love this I love this general go on okay well it it is really important to understand that now in his position is the commander of US Pacific air forces he has extraordinary insight into the mischief as well as the military capabilities of China and what they're trying to do so he brings to bear a vast amount of experience across the world in the most critical regions this is that have been facing us in I think it's just the the absolutely right pick now on top of all of that the given the recent activities on going around the world but not around the world but basically in the United States he posted a heartfelt video on Twitter on his own experience with racial prejudice in it's extraordinarily moving in exemplary striking precisely the right tone throughout so I I encourage your audience to take a look at that now I want to ask you a little bit about skill sets you and I want to make sure the audience understands you can be a combatant commander and you can be a chief of staff but you can't beat them at the same time you have to usually be a combatant commander before you become a chief of staff is that generally true general dental it it is generally true that is correct there is an exception however and that is our brand new chief of space operations which is the equivalent of the chief of staff for it but it's a little bit of a name change but just like in the navy they don't have a chief of staff of the navy via chief of naval operations which is the uniformed chief well for our new space force the chief of staff for a space force his name and title is chief of space operations that individual general Jay Raymond is also dual hatted as the commander of US space command which is a combatant command that's the only exception all right so now some people should understand generally speaking if you were plotting the ideal military career you would be a fast riser promoter ahead of schedule do all check all the boxes go all the schools have all the major commands and end up as.

"Joining us follow if the improv show dot com website and podcast there is you on Spotify and iTunes Twitter at the improv in at the improv show airforce general Charles Q. brown junior was confirmed as the first black chief of staff for the Air Force making him the first black to lead a major branch of the military Colin Powell was a chairman of the joint chiefs but he didn't run a military service by contrast general brown made his way through the ranks the hard way F. sixteen pilot flying some three thousand hours of various Air Force commands in Asia the Middle East recently that the US Pacific air forces which provided insight into the rise of China's military and he posted a five minute video that was made for those under his command in the wake of the George Floyd killing with his perspective on the two worlds in which he's lived as a black American and as a black American in the military and military officer that's interesting here's what general brown had to say as a commander Pacific air forces the simulator are forced an African American many of you may be wondering what I'm thinking about the current events surrounding the tragic death of George Floyd here's what I'm thinking about think about helpful I am with the motion not just for George Ford but the many African Americans that have suffered the same fate as straightforward I'm thinking about protests in my country tis of thee sweet land of liberty equality expressed in our declaration of independence and the constitution I swore my adult life to support the fan and thinking about a history of racial issues in my own experiences that didn't always saying of liberty and equality the thing about living in two worlds each with their own perspective and views I'm thinking about my sister and I being the only African Americans in our parliamentary school and trying to fit in I'm thinking about than going to a high school were roughly half the students were African American and trying to fit in I think about my airforce career where I was often the only African American in my squadron was 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 as my peers in the main question by another military member are you a pilot thing about how I sometimes felt my comments were perceived to represent the Africans perspective when it's just my perspective informed by being African American I'm thinking about some of the instance of comments made without awareness by others I think about being a captain at the Cobo club with my squadron and being told by other African Americans that wasn't black enough as I was spending more time with my sworn into them with them I'm thinking about my mentors hello really I had a mentor to look like me I'm thinking about the sound advice is led to my success and even so most of my mentors cannot relate to my experience as an African American I'm thinking about the pressure I felt to perform error free especially for supervisors I perceive had expected less from me as an African American I think about having to represent by working twice as hard to prove their expectations and perceptions of African Americans were invalid I think about the German they've lived through similar experiences and feelings of mine well who wore either consciously armed conflict unfairly treated conversely I think about the army who don't have a selection of the mind and don't have to navigate through two worlds I think about how these airman the racism but they don't see it as a problem since it doesn't happen to them or whether they're empathetic I'm thinking about our two sons now we had to prepare them to live in two worlds I'm thinking about the Franken emotional conversation my wife and I've had with them just this past week as we discussed the situations that have led to the protests around our country fine I'm thinking about my store number nation to be the first African American to serve as the airforce chief of staff I'm thinking about the African American someone before me to make this opportunity possible I'm thinking about the immense expectations that come with this historic nomination particularly through the lens of current events plaguing our nation I thinking about how I may have fallen short in my career and how we can do better going for particularly in his new post that's a lot of thinking that general brown is doing I wish more people would do as much thinking but the two worlds frame for his comments is really interesting and I think if you had more honesty along the lines of what general brown offered you could get from two worlds to one world we don't have to be the same we just have to be treated the same under the law that's the distinction seems to be lost in these conversations and by the way mentored by people that didn't understand his experience basically saying they were white Altaris career to his historic perch now I thought that I had to try to fit in in the grade school where I was me and my sister were the only two black kids and then I try to fit in at a high school where half of the kids were black kids but you know because I was a different kind of kid and so it wasn't so much white and black it was about me Charles brown very interesting and those who went before him I I wanna reference back to this op ed we mentioned when it was published last year right before we celebrated our nation's birthday on July fourth by Harry Stewart who is a former to ski gear men who is birthday also July fourth but the symmetry but turning ninety five you turn ninety five years old last July fourth he wrote this op ed in the Wall Street journal he received the Distinguished Flying Cross World War two veteran any right I was thankful that my country had given me the opportunity to fly and fight and all these years later I am proud I contributed to the cause we called it winning the double V. victory against totalitarianism abroad and institutional racism at home July fourth is my birthday but I thought by my country's birthday too America is not perfect in the nineteen forties and it's not perfect today yeah I fought for then and would do so again so you can take the perspective of a retired Air Force lieutenant colonel Harry Stewart and general brown thoughtful perspective contextual perspective like where America has come that America twenty twenty is a different place than America nineteen sixty three and then the American nineteen forty five when Harry Stewart was flying fighters for this country or you can take the hysterical.

S. history general Charles brown junior just a general bad **** somebody called him Charlie Brown no sure now you don't do that with a with a straight face I can imagine yeah but congratulations that's that's quite a historic moment yeah the school system it is eight fifty here all the time to don show without all fifty states allowing business to re open many of you are now maybe feel free a little more comfortable to get a hair cut maybe do some shopping place in laser tag whatever you're into it's none of my business morning consult a survey of U. S. adults determine what types of activities that don you feel comfortable doing yeah now they are most comfortable eating out at thirty five percent good taking a vacation thirty two percent going to a shopping mall thirty one percent those numbers are kind of low action yeah that needs to do this get better than that yeah we need we need ninety nine point nine is what we need in that case you will likely not requiring passports Americans are at least comfortable traveling abroad thirteen percent going to a concert seventeen percent going to an amusement park only twenty percent of those numbers are low there's not gonna be any kind of by a big gathering like that in Austin for a while well I got this year I mean J. A. C. L. still they still haven't decided what they're doing or at least they haven't let the public know what they're doing yet as far as a festival in the in the fall but I felt personally feel comfortable doing just about anything the only thing I don't feel comfortable out if someone comes up and cops on me that's the only thing I don't like that I don't I don't generally don't like that on on the best day but other than that you know I've what been to many restaurants now and have never never in in fact if you ask me I think some of the restaurants that I've been in a couple anyway have maybe taken things a little too far with the steps they're taking but you know what they're doing what they feel they have to do this to be open so that's fine but I think some of my maybe the or worrying a little bit too much you mentioned ACL for October the second through the fourth and then the following week in the ninth to eleventh and and I guess tickets are still on sale of course doctor Marcus Scott says it's not gonna happen but he did he's not the ultimate authority does not to city council he he's he's never going to come out and say that that's perfectly safe to do here's your feel safe would you go to all the ACL fest absolutely what I think ought come October I would as well yeah I mean it might not go this weekend I'm I'm not gonna you know a month ago for sure but but you know I think I'd go if I had to catch this we cannot go well I think what I I I have a feeling that they will have it but what they will do is that they will they will restrict ticket sales it will be far far less tickets available for purchase a smaller crowd probably smaller crowd probably fewer acts and too so they can still make money on the deal sure let me if you have a smaller crowd than you have now if you are accessing it costs money to pay them yeah and you know try to think about that another thing and I and I was talking to Herbert mostly from select tours travel the other day I mean he's got some he's got some cruises coming up and we were talking about you know because that industry is about to fire up in Dave they're doing some amazing things well first of all you're not gonna see you're not gonna see for a long time four thousand people crammed on cramped on their ship they're going to be fewer cabin sold to give you more space doesn't mean it's going to cost more now durable no it does it does it they're also the things that they're offering as far as freebies as far as food as far as drinks on and on and on I mean actually what is going to happen is the experience of cruising for example is going to be better than it was before it's going to be safer than it was before and because they have that choice because you know you might be right because some of the biggest criticism of those that don't like cruises yeah they don't like the big crowds right they can't come on here get that they're not gonna be able to do that they're gonna they're gonna sell less capital we watch you know capacity gonna be like I I waited fifty percent it might be it might be it like fifty percent so how do they make money like that well you know they're going to have to do what they have to do I have a feeling that the profits might not be as much for a while but they will do what they have to do to at least break even and keep going and and ultimately the result is going to be a better experience for everybody yeah and and also safer I mean I was hearing about some of the health steps that are being proposed and it's is it man it's if if for example Holland America if somebody if anybody gets sick with it with anything you're off the boat I mean they're gonna get hardcore with it but they're going to have to be like it like if you're out at sea if your ad is it whatever the hell they're gonna helicopter either they're not going to help the company out there but the never push over what he said there if the right there you just they they push you off to the side is that extreme Mandel next port and I'm sure they'll help make arrangements to get your home but you're off that ship yeah and things like that so taking your temperature every time you turn around you're saying there's no no sick people are allowed no sick people allowed and they they certainly aren't gonna let you're on the boat even if you have a cold hello I'm looking for to ACL well in October I am ready for that he can do it I think they care but I don't think the city is going to allow it well that's it that's that's the other thing that's the other thing what what is the city the city council in indoor saw thousands of people get together for you know protesters and riot sure again together to listen to some music and eat some food listen you don't see crowds packed that tight ACL like we saw for that for that protest over the weekend you don't you don't even see him well listen I mean it's it's the kind of thing your lifestyle should not be limited at all though at all nope it should not be limited you know what you.
