1. Would be interesting to know how these wives were selected and who did it.

2. That's not what the photo is

 

It's actually from The Joint Armed Forces of Washington Luncheon.

The JAFOWL Committee is comprised of representatives from the officers’ spouses’ clubs of the five military services; Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard. The committee arranges the annual luncheons to promote and celebrate the unity of all military officers’ spouses.

That explains why the women in the photo appear to be on the older side for military spouses, since they are all women married to officers, who tend to be older than other enlisted men.

Also there are photos from the event that do include several non-white women (such as the one at the link provided).

Feel the outrage! Do something about it!

8. I served in the Navy for 30 years

Retiring as an LDO CDR Mustang Officer.

I served with a shit ton of AA, Hispanic and other minority OFFICERS

The fact that there is NOT ONE person of color is NOT an accident.

Also, I've decided to alert any God damned DU post that remotely gives the benefit of the doubt to these deplorable shitstains in the White House

10. This has nothing to do with the White House

 

It's from a Joint Armed Forces of Washington event. The photo is from The Air Force Officers’ Spouses’ Club. This is a social club that has existed since 1940. Photos from their events while Obama was president are similarly comprised almost entirely of white women.

11. Now, now. Come on, get on the right page here.

 

The DU narrative is what counts.

3. Link to the event WEB page...

See: https://www.afoscdc.com/jafowl.html

The JAFOWL Committee is comprised of representatives from the officers’ spouses’ clubs of the five military services; Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard. The committee arranges the annual luncheons to promote and celebrate the unity of all military officers’ spouses.


AFOSC members enjoyed military spouse fellowship, a wonderful lunch, and guest speaker, Ivanka Trump, at our Joint Armed Forces of Washington Luncheon in April. Mrs. Trump shared her graditude for military families and her work to address military spouse employment and entrepreneurship. Congrats to our JAFOWL committee for this tremendous success!


Just a quick look at the slide show appears to indicate only white ladies. This is incredibly strange... ...

Hi, @RonaldKlain. While I don't defend the current administration, I do as a journalist defend the truth. This photo was with the Air Force Officers' Wives Club. The Air Force is more than 75% white at all levels, and the officer corps--particularly over O-3--is near 90% white.


......WTF....90%..??

6. And no men

Some of our military are women and they have spouses, too.

7. Because the photo is from an event for the spouses of officers

 

And the photo is of the spouses of Air Force officers.

The vast majority of whom are white men.
