EXCLUSIVE: Military documents obtained by a conservative watchdog show instructional materials from the US Air Force Academy, including presentations on Critical Race Theory (CRT), White Privilege, and the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement.
The group, Judicial Watch, announced Friday that it had obtained 478 pages of documents through a November 2022 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit it filed after the Department of Defense (DOD) failed to respond to its request for Air Force Academy training materials. related to CRT.
The documents include a certain PowerPoint presentation on “Prejudice and Racism,” and address issues such as interracial relationships and white Americans’ attitudes toward the Democratic and Republican parties through a racial lens.

Judicial Watch pointed to a point in the presentation stating, “Opposition to interracial dating correlated with white partisanship following the election of (President) Obama, despite being unrelated to party identification in previous decades.”
It also noted that the presentation included a series of tables headed, “White Americans’ Support for Democratic Presidential Candidates as a Function of Old-Fashioned Racism,” and another tabulated slide that read, “Correlations Between Republican Party Identification and old-fashioned old-fashioned racism among white Americans.”
Another highlighted slide was one titled “Radicalization of Public Policy,” with a bullet point that read, “They (surveys) found that the image of a black man greatly influenced responses among Trump supporters.”

A bullet point on the same slide said that polled supporters of former President Donald Trump were “less supportive of housing assistance programs,” “expressed more anger that some people receive government assistance,” and “were more likely to say that individuals who receiving aid are responsible for their economic situation” after being “exposed to the black racial cue”.
Other slides discussed topics such as “white identity” and the “effects” it has on non-white people, “support for voter identity laws,” and “support for political violence.”
The archives also include a “CRT Talking Points” document that argued that the phrase “white supremacy” elicits “defensive” feelings, but is the “academically correct way to talk about most of American history.”

A separate presentation appeared to promote BLM by including an image of a white police officer holding a sign pointing to a black man asking, “Is his life worth less than mine?” Another image showed a white woman holding a similar sign in the direction of a black woman. Other slides showed alleged police brutality against black Americans.
A number of additional materials obtained by Judicial Watch that are in the archives repeated the same topics in various presentations, slides, and communications between DOD staffers.
