Why the U.S. military hasn’t made more progress on overcoming racism
I never met a ‘light bird’ – the next rank after Major -who was black during my term in the military and the rank and priority level of service I served under brought me in communique with the Officers Corps on a regular basis. I wondered than why this was but never received a satisfactory answer.. NOW they are talking about it – almost 40 years later!!
WELL SORRY FOLKS – BUT CHAIR of JOINT CHIEFS OF STAFF DoD OUTRANKS CHIEF OF STAFF OF A PARTICULAR SERVICE AND COLIN POWELL ALREADY WENT THERE.. AND NEVER SPOKE ON THIS SUBJECT EVEN TODAY!!
When they are about to ‘taint’ or ‘demonize’ or ‘bring down’ a government position they install a woman.. NOW when they are about to do the same to the US MILITARY they put in an Officer of Color because there are NO WOMEN AVAILABLE!! WE ARE EXPERIENCING AN ADMINISTRATIVE COUP HERE IN THE USA RIGHT NOW AND IT IS TOO LATE TO STOP IT – WE ARE ALL FUCKED’.. NOW AND FOREVER MORE – AMERICA IS DONE, OVER, FINISHED, CAPUT, NON-EXISTENT ANYMORE!! WATCH WHAT I TELL YA.. IGNORE MY WORDS AND SUFFER THE REALITY OF UNAVOIDABLE CONSEQUENCES BECAUSE YOU DID NOT ACT TO HELP YOURSELF!!
