My late dad was a WW II veteran. When my older brother was drafted for the Vietnam War our dad told him he wasn't going, my brother didn't. My dads thoughts where and I agree no Black person should ever join the United States Military. You don't go fight others people wars. Period. Black people don't owe US shit, fuck this nation.

How did he get out of the draft of the Vietnam War? Thousands of others went, whites, black, hispanics, native americans...what made your brother different from anybody else?

My brother applied as a conscientious objector and he had a criminal record. In 1958 my brother was thrown in jail for protesting segregation in Yazoo Mississippi, at the tender age of 13. After he told Army what he thought of this nation and white people.... the military deem him not fit for military services. This 1967, black people in the South still couldn't vote. Contray to the lies they tell you, many black men refuse to serve and didn't.

Buy no means am I saying all white people are evil. What going on in the US is nothing new. Centtry after century, decade after decade, White Nationlist claw their way back to power. Are all white bad? NO. But the only in power are and those are the people I have to fight against. If things had truely changed in the US, Donald Trump wouldn't be President of the United States. What's different? Its over for US, the world economy which "we" designed came back to "us" in the ass. its been a long time coming.

Everyone is supposed to have the right to be a Concientious Objector in the USA. Just because all were drafted still does not make a war right.

African-Americans came back from Vietnam to the same civil rights problems that were there before they served. And no job offers. If that happened to you, wouldn't it make you wonder what freedoms you were forced to fight for?

In WWII, black troops were segregated. When they came back here, (after receiving the same hero's welcome by our European allies as white troops), they came back to segregation and no jobs.

Navajo code talkers are now credited with being pivotal in winning WWII. They had the only codes that could not be cracked by enemy forces, yet became invisible again when they returned. Many decades later they were finally honored. Quite a few had already died.

Everyone was and is not treated equally in this country. Neo-nazis are on the rise, along with their sympathizers - our current President being the most visible sign of the times. The majority white population that "are not bad" needs to step up.

All this bs about D-Day. We should not lionize war, ever. We should thank God that we know longer have to fight wars of violence. Celebrating war is celebrating death.

All you others say Hell Yea!! woot!
