I have seen in the last few years this argument over race go back and forth and could tell you one of the lessons I learned as a young man in the Navy was that as long as a person was capable,honorable, and worked hard that is how you judged them. To judge a person by the color of their skin is complete nonsense and anyone who engages in such a thing should take pause and understand that honor, friendship, and loyality knows no bounds or color. This nation in which we live has a rich history of people of all races that have contributed to its greatness and have given their lives in its service. We dishonor them when we resort to race name calling because we are better than that as a people. Our nation has so much to address in these times and resorting to race as a means to gain political favor or sympathy takes away from the work needed to be done and dishonors all those who came before us that have given so much for this nation. We are all in this together and regardless of our disagreements we as a nation need to come together to solve those issues.
