    Are you expected to be a member of the named minority group in order to participate in the committee?

    Legally, they can't discriminate. However, just like the race-based awards (i.e., Blacks in Gov Awards [BIG]) that are for "anyone," they were created with the INTENT to recognize people of that specific race/gender, etc.

    Someday this great big melting pot will come together and form a country of likeminded individuals.

    Yeah, it always amuses me to read the instructions for those race-based awards. The award is open to people from any race...yet you HAVE to submit a photograph with the package for almost all of them.

    Hmmm, I wonder why???

    Re: Diversity Day

    You know, at my place these days/months are not emphasized at all. It's pretty nice. It used to be just another thing that I was expected to show my face at... eat some fried chicken, lumpia, tacos, maize, whatever. Had a guy in my unit once who was the biggest POS Airman but was the best black guy we had, that ended up winning some ridiculous civilian african something or other. Won at least at the MAJCOM if not AF. I've have never submitted anyone for one of those awards.
