    I experienced racism in the military but having been raised in Arizona I had already experienced it so...

    by asking a question?

    Maybe it time for you to start taking responsibility for your own perceptions.

    I'm glad to see that the Air Force cadets of that class were not really doing that. Hopefully the foolish guy who did that crap doesn't end up causing racial problems for the class going forward. It certainly will be a setback for civil rights folks, because now people who claim that racism is over already will point to this as an example... and racism itself (to them) is "fake news".

The post has since been removed.
    “This is why I’m so hurt!” the mother said. “These young people are supposed to bond and protect each other and the country. Who would my son have to watch out for? The enemy or the enemy?”

    I suspect this is something we all can agree is unacceptable as well as clearly racist.
    This OP duped again.

    Perhaps you should be a little slower playing your race card.

    There was no racist act at the Air Force academy it was a black man trying to save his ass from academic failure who posted these messages. He was trying to play the victim sympathy card.

    The military is the least racist part of the american society despite the claims from some chicken hawks here who say other wise
