The majority of military casualties are overwhelmingly white. (Blacks tend to serve in support units). The more elite units tend to be whiter. Furthermore, rural and small-town whites from the South and Midwest are very common, really the backbone of the military. Today’s military is being feminized and homosexualized, it looks like they’re going to try to make it more and more uncomfortable for traditional white male soldiers.
Absolutely right. The resultant PC backlash (blacks, in particular, get special consideration for combat arms leadership) can have some rather tragic results (see 5/2 SBCT and COL Tunnell--if he had been white he would've been fired prior to deploying with 5/2, no question).
