By William F. Prince, Col, USA (Ret.), USMA ‘70

STARRS newsletters 11 and 13 each contained articles, written by COL (Ret.) Bill Prince, USMA class of ’70 and titled “Yet Another Scandal at West Point, You Be the Judge” Parts 1 and 2. The two articles traced the teaching of Critical Race Theory (CRT) at the military academy. As noted in those articles, COL Prince had repeatedly reached out to West Point for help in his investigation but faced a stonewall from the academy. The West Point Association of Graduates (AOG) was more helpful and indicated that they might provide additional comments or even corrections which COL Prince intended to include in Part 3. Regrettably, AOG did not provide any additional information. Thus Part 3 focuses primarily on West Point’s Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Equal Opportunity (ODIEO) established during the Obama administration in May 2014. In summary, COL Prince believes that some in positions of leadership at West Point have promoted racial stereotyping by deliberately exposing cadets and faculty to CRT. He is using multiple venues to call upon West Point Superintendent LTG Darryl Williams and AOG President Todd Browne to publicly and specifically condemn all forms of racial stereotyping to include Critical Race Theory, and to encourage other members of “The Long Grey Line” to pause in providing any financial support to the AOG, unless or until Mr. Browne condemns racial stereotyping.
