New Department of Defense Equity Chief has History of Anti-White Statements

A new diversity hire at the Biden Administration’s Department of Defense (DOD) has a long and documented history of racist statements against White people on her social media.

As reported by the New York Post, Kelisa Wing is an Army veteran and the new chief of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) at the DOD’s Education Activity. Her Twitter account in particular contains numerous anti-White statements, including her declaration in June of 2020 that she was “exhausted with these white folx in these [professional development] sessions.”

“[T]his lady actually had the CAUdacity to say that black people can be racist too… I had to stop the session and give Karen the BUSINESS,” she continued, using a slur that is often meant to target White women in particular. “[W]e are not the majority, we don’t have power.”

“[B]eing antiracist means being active against racism… you will NEVER arrive… stop centering this on whiteness,” Wing continued ranting.

Wing continued using the anti-White “Karen” slur against the Trump Administration, referring to President Donald Trump as a “whole boy version of a Karen,” and calling Education Secretary Betsy DeVos “the queen of Karens.”

In addition, Wing has been active in the ongoing indoctrination efforts against young children in American education. In 2021, she co-wrote the book “What is White Privilege” with author Leigh Ann Dickerson.

“White privilege hurts a lot of people,” the book reads in part. “If you are White you might feel bad about hurting others or you might feel afraid to lose this privilege. Overcoming White privilege is a job that must start with the White community.”

“White privilege” is the debunked far-left theory claiming that White people have an automatic advantage in American society solely due to their skin color, as the result of alleged “systemic racism” in American institutions.

Wing also co-wrote a book called “What is Anti-Racism?” In the book, she falsely claims that “the modern idea of ‘race’ was introduced by the National Party in Germany.” Contrary to her claims, concepts of race existed long before Nazi Germany, and Wing also incorrectly names the Nazi Party; the full name of the party was the National Socialist German Workers’ Party, not the National Party.

Yet another book she co-wrote was called “What Does it Mean to Defund the Police?”

Upon her hiring at the DOD in 2021, the department released a statement celebrating her hire, declaring that she “has been involved with diversity, equity and inclusion efforts for students and schools over many years, authoring several books on the topic.”

The DOD did not respond to requests for comment from Fox News, which first reported on Wing’s comments.
