The majority of military casualties are overwhelmingly white. (Blacks tend to serve in support units). The more elite units tend to be whiter.
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).

What was the Tunnell thing about?
