Topic: All soldiers Equal?


Are blacks and other minorities treated as fairly as whites in our nation's military. I espically want to hear answers from those who have or currently do serve in the military. I know I should try and stay away from race but I feel this question needs to be addressed. I did a search and did not find anything like this topic so if it has already been talked about I apologize. Even if it has I still want to hear what everybody has to say.

Nobody cares what color you are in the military. You joined up to fight for your country and thats all that matters.

What I've heard of going on in some units, particularly cadet units is reverse-racism. People getting promoted over because they are minorities.

Its happening a lot less than it was before. There are many decent ranking other race officers now.

Don't know about other nations specifically, but consider how for the USA has come: During WW2, blacks were in seperate units from whites and generally were the officers of those units were white. We've come a long ways indeed.

I dont agree, my mom is a Major who gets allot of respect. Whenever I tell someone on base who my mom is they get allot friendlier, including people who out rank her.
