    In the 'new' military, it's about the benefits, etc.

    It depends on life experience.A deeper question is, If america decides to attack Africa (oh that right, already happened) Should Black americans take up arms against Black Africans in the name of Yt supremacy??

    So James, do you feel patriotic towards a country built on yt supremacy??

    There's as much a macho/John Wayne with a permanent suntan/etc. take on why even Colin Powell joined the military...

    What painted on the side of some rocks in 'Nam...

    "I never called you a (guess what)?"

    Now so many of us call each other that?

    A no brainer as regards how far backwards some have gone, i. e., since my generation tried to make a difference, (not just a buck)!

    Jaycee sailing thru the desert sands is your generation's take:

    Us and the 'a-rabs' not as enemies but as rivals...

    And who pays for Jaycees videos:

    Somebody else...

    Who controls the production and distribution costs of his cd's?

    White capitalism: 101...

    Yes do crack a book!

    One must peep a con for what it is meant to steal back from you...

    I. e., another means/ways/etc. to use you to advance their dreams/schemes, too...

    Instead, I know what some of those insurgents are up to, since so many of those arab strongmen had U. S./Western backing, to begin with!

    We were plagued by slavery and segregation...

    They've been plagued by white colonialism/neo colonialism/etc..

    Fanon spoke/wrote/etc. about the consequences on of all of our peoples:

    Now all of mainstays of the aformentioned have been scrambling since the World Trade Towers came down...

    As Malcolm would say: 'The chickens came home to roost again...'

    My 'patroitism' is to my/our relations...

    Not some white or other boss...

    So what is the loyality of today's recruits too?

    I continue to believe what I said and wrote about that to sum up things too well...

    Now yah dig?

    No offense implied or suggested...

    But do clear up what you meant too...

    Thanks!

    FYI...
