    Huh? Are you saying there was no meaning to their actions?

    You know how many black people jump start their lives through careers in the military. Do you also know they probably wouldn't be able to do that if it wasn't for groups like the Tuskegee Airmen? I don't know about all that other stuff, but their sacrifices definitely paid off in the long run even if it's not obvious.

    No...I was sayin that in the moment while I was watchin it...All I saw was a bunch of people...White and black...Puttin their lives on the line for reasons they didn't know and killin other people they didn't know...Like when they flew back to the enemy base and shot it up, they were competing to see who could kill more people...My issue was more with war itself, and what it does to soldiers...And as far as the black ones, they prolly came back after duty and got shitted on in this same country they fought for...That's what made me mad, it's just fucked up.

    I've seen documentaries like that. Dehumanizing your enemy does indeed dehumanize you.

    This isent a knock on anybody but every person I know that joined the service did so because they didn't have shit else going on in life and were too dumb for school so as long as the $ and benefits were there, they would do anything Uncle Sam needed them to do.

    One of the funniest (funny in a tragic way) things America has ever done was campaign and request the service of Black Americans in WWII to fight Germany's racism when they were treating Black Americans like crap in their own country.

    Good ol' American hypocrisy
