I don't see how any of our services could be racist. There is such a wide range of nationalities, it would be impossible to function if they all d each other.

Generally, the military is a reflection of the society. There are racists in our society so there are going to be racists in the military. However, that number is extemely small.

To say one branch is racist is quite ignorant.

I would be very careful in this discusion

I don't think that a racist would last very long in any branch of the military. There are too many individuals from every different race for someone in the service to hate someone else based on color or ethnicity. I do not think you would find many racists in any part of the military.

People, there will always be some form of racial conflict somewhere, that is a fact of life. Some people are just ignorant that way. In the military, and my experience in The Corps you are always taught from boot on up, throughout your military career, there is only one color in The Corps and that is GREEN. There may be different shades of it, but it is all Green, you are brothers and sisters and if you can not get past that you need not apply.

I never saw overt racisim in combat arms. But I heard of some tensions in certain Support Units at Camp Lejune.
In my expierance racisim is not condoned nor tolorated in the Corps.
