Man, how many of you people spouting your opinions on this issue are actually black?
I happen to be black and I'm going to throw my 2 cents in the mix since non-blacks seem to be doing so...
For one, slaves WERE bred to be bigger and stronger, how else would you get the max production out of them?
Two, blacks don't only do well in basketball. There's football, baseball, even golf if you count Tiger (I don't, he's a little of everything
The point is that people can't be surprised if people who were "bred" for labor excel at sports.
As for basketball as the only way out of the hood, what about other sports? What about intellectual blacks such as myself? What about the drug
dealers, isn't that a way to move out of the hood?
Don't worry, that's not a racist comment; the biggest drug dealers are WHITE men!! Don't
believe it, of course you don't...
Anyway, back to the topic. Whoever said that they shouldn't track black recruits had a good point. Why no stats on white recruits? Or any other
race, for that matter?
Personally, as a black college student, there's no way I would fight in this war. This war is BS, there, I said it. If someone attacked our
country, I would fight, no doubt. But, I ain't fighting just so some rich a$$ politicians get closer to controlling the globe. And PLEASE don't
tell me Bin Laden and Al-CIAda, I mean Al-Qaeda
attacked us on 9/11. If you believe that, you are a moron, plain and simple.
I see this report as more doublethink anyway. I guess No Child Left Behind ain't really working, huh?
I saw so many damn military recruits my
senior year of high school it wasn't funny.
I don't blame the blacks who don't volunteer for service. Look at the past US wars. In WWII, the black vets came back to a racist country who
didn't consider them citizens. Same thing for Vietnam. So please get off your high horses. If this country wasn't so focked up, you might see
more "minorities" fighting for it.
