There is a good scientific backing to subconscious sexism and racism in our everyday behavior. Not sure why people bend over backward to try to assert it is a non-issue. We are biased, try to reduce that bias constantly.
Pretty much my thoughts. Justifying spending is one thing, but when you need to convince scientifically illiterate people who refuse to apply the same methods to military waste, it won't turn out well for America. Also can't wait to see what this actually costs us in bureaucracy.
