/QUOTE]
Though peoples of African ethnicity shouldn’t have been fighting then or now for the USA’s so profoundly White Supremacist Racist Power Elite’s armed forces should they Clyde, wasn’t the US Army’s Black Division in White on White World War II, like the Tuskegee Airmen literally the best of the best?

However don’t their exploits hightlight that they were a truly superb fighting force, who had previously been held in reserve as the USA’s generals were nervous of ordering Black men to slaughter whites, even though they happen to be German [for fear that they might get a taste for it], but this NAZI counter attack could have driven the Allies back to the Normandy beachhead, especially as the Germans were utilizing infiltration units in American uniforms to cause even more confusion.

General Patton withdrew what US forces he could verify and ordered the Black division to go into the Ardennes and slaughter everyone who wasn’t Black/USA uniform or not.

They initially refused to join in this particular battle unless they were led by their own Black officers [all their ranks above sargeant were white as the status quo were ultra nervous of creating Black regiments with their own Black officers/who might rebel etc], thus this battle literally gave birth to the US army’s African American officer corps, a fact which is STILL whitewashed out of history [a glaring omission from the specifics of the Battle of the Bulge], isn’t it?

Isn’t ANYONE who genuinely believes they are not programmed
graphically illustrating that their programming is complete?
