    Common sense is not a gift, it's a punishment because you have to deal with everyone who doesn't have it.

    So you admit you're also a racist?

    80,000 Americans died and 900,000 were hospitalised just two years ago from flu including the most virulent Type A version of H3N2, so why didn't you arseholes call for the total destruction of the world's economic system then? I hope you have plenty of time to ponder over that when you all lose your houses, jobs and relationships!

    Nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measles of mankind. Albert Einstein

    America's future is bright, not white

    And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment

    Free speech is cool as long as it jibes with our program.

The US MILITARY systematically withheld AWARDS and MEDALS from Negroes and JEWS throughout and AFTER the 2nd WW. Depending on the tenacity, guts, relentlessness, resources of the families left behind to go through the 'paperwork/records', letter writings, appeal after appeal and shaming of the services and/or their elected officials, these stories rarely turned out well.

    This was a fucking MIRACLE.

    Negroes? Seriously?

    A former GOP congressman’s fight to finally get a black World War II hero the Medal of Honor

    Do to racism of that time, Doris Miller did not receive the Medal of Honor, and after shooting down four enemy planes, he went back to the ship's mess?!! Blacks were not allowed in combat arms positions in the segregated military?!!

    For much of the past three decades, Joseph DioGuardi, a former Republican congressman from New York, has waged an often lonely crusade to persuade reluctant federal, military, and civilian officials to honor Doris “Dorie” Miller — an African-American hero of World War II and survivor of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor — with a Medal of Honor, the highest U.S. military recognition.

    On Friday, DioGuardi returns to Washington to try it once again. He plans to speak on a panel during the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s annual meeting and, after lobbying there, he intends to work the convention hall, passing out literature to drum up support to press Congress and the White House to finally give Miller his overdue honor.
