Kelisa Wing, an Army veteran who serves as the Pentagon’s “diversity and inclusion” officer, is charged with maintaining peaceful race relations. However, after it was revealed that she had previously made several scandalous postings on her social media accounts insulting white people in general, the Pentagon announced that it would be launching an inquiry into Wing’s online conduct.

Kelisa serves as the Department of Defense’s Education Activity’s lead “diversity, equity, and inclusion” officer, making her racy tweets even more perplexing. Her views on social media first sparked controversy last week, and now federal authorities are looking into them to see if she is qualified to be an “equity” officer.

After being called out by Fox News for making racially charged statements, the Black woman’s old tweets were dug up, which included words like “Karen” and “Caudacity,” according to Fox News. After Fox News contacted her for comment on them, Wing changed the social media postings to private.

Now, Wing’s social media account and LinkedIn profile have been deactivated. However, thousands of Wing’s past comments posted over several years will need to be reviewed by authorities for potential federal scrutiny.

During the pandemic years, Wing was elevated to head of the Education Office. She is in charge of educating staff’s children, which has caused some military personnel to be concerned that their kids would be given an unequal education.

On July 23, 2020, Wing wrote on Twitter, “I’m 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… We are not the majority. We don’t have power. (A thread) why ask for assistance.”

For the past sixteen years, Wing has been an important member of the Department of Defense. She was named DEI Chief in December 2021 and is in charge of educating Pentagon children as well as those from families who are serving abroad.

The Department of Defense has been made aware of Wing’s social media postings, and it is now “reviewing” the situation to determine whether any damage was done.

“We are aware of news reports concerning an official at DoDEA,” said Cmdr. Nicole Schwegman.

The Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness is investigating Wing’s potentially racist remarks. They’ll determine if Wing’s statements violate federal rules banning racism by government officials. There’s a lot of interest in her inquiry because she works with children.

“Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion efforts in… [DoDEA] are an important part of building and sustaining an organizational culture where all students, educators, and staff are valued and respected,” the spokesperson stated. “Our focus remains on ensuring military-connected students, their families, and our employees have equitable access to opportunities and resources that support student achievement and readiness for college and careers.”
