The US military
- has IQ tested millions of recruits, for about a century, and refused to enlist a huge percentage of Black and Hispanic applicants as untrainable due to low IQ 
- has engaged in Affirmative Action at least since John F. Kennedy promoted an underqualified Black astronaut, and
- has been silent about Black mutinies and fragging 
- 1 IQ
- 2 Affirmative Action
- 3 Black mutiny, riots, fragging in the military

There can be no discussion if there is an IQ difference between US Blacks and Whites. The results are clear, the sample size huge, in the Millions. more
What is left is to discuss the validity, culture neutrality of IQ tests, and how much of IQ is heritable, genetic. Racists say that all these issues have been solved, counter to Political Correctness.
What you definitely won’t see elsewhere is an explanation of the most likely reason for this racial imbalance: IQ. To be allowed to enlist, you have to score 92 or higher on the military’s IQ test, the Armed Forces Qualification Test (the same one used throughout The Bell Curve.) Since 1992, only 1% of new military enlistees have had IQs below the 30th percentile nationally.
This requirement disqualifies about half of all Hispanics and over 60% of all blacks from joining up, versus less than a quarter of all whites.
People such as Harvard Professor Robert D. “Bowling Alone” Putnam like to talk about how the rest of society can attain the friendly racial relations found in the U.S. military:
“I think we can do a lot to push change along more rapidly. The US military is one example. There was a lot of racial tension around the time of the Vietnam war. Now, polls show that US military personnel have many more friendships across ethnic lines than civilians. And that was deliberate. If officers were told they wouldn’t make colonel if they were seen to discriminate, they changed.”
Okay, but even if we followed Dr. Putnam’s implicit advice and imposed martial law on America, we still wouldn’t be able to follow what is the secret to the military’s success: artificially eliminate the majority of the racial IQ gap by using an IQ-based admissions test.
It’s crucial to remember that, until very recently due to Iraq, three out of ten American youths, and a higher proportion of minority youths, were ineligible for service in the military due to low IQs. This means that the benefits of military acculturation are unavailable to those who presumably need them the most. Last year I proposed an alternativeto military service for kids who think they could benefit from military discipline but aren’t smart enough to pass the AFQT.
Affirmative action President Kennedy tried to push the best but still underqualified Black pilot to be an Astronaut. All others were the elite top gun fliers, which "happened" to be white. PC would blame racism, slavery, colonialism, institutional racism.
Equally the Navy Seals that shot Osama Bin Laden were all white. The top of the top elite is usually white. In spite of meritocracy, PC cries racism. Hollywood of course, in best lying press fashion falsified history and put a Black man in a leading role into the team. Act Of Valor—Act Of Treason: Obama Imposes Affirmative Action On Navy SEALs
Red Tails is being released January 20 in theaters across the country. With its production and marketing bankrolled by Lucas personally to the tune of more than $100 million, it is designed to be the blockbuster that establishes in the hearts and minds of millions of impressionable moviegoers a new myth: in effect, that the vaunted Tuskegee Airmen single-handily won World War II for the Allied Powers.
That these valiant Black aviators, who overcame prejudice at home in the Jim Crow South (though they had topass the same IQ and other aptitude tests as potential white pilot trainees) and battled the insidious Nazi Luftwaffe over the airspace of mainland Europe is proof that the more than 400 deployed Tuskegee Airmen of the 332d Fighter Group are the real heroes of World War II.
Never mind that, unlike more than 1200 white Army Air Force pilots in World War II, not one Tuskegee Airmen earned the honorific of “ace” (five or more confirmed enemy kills). Never mind that the myth of “never losing a bomber” that they escorted was finally discredited after it had been propagated via HBO’s 1995 film The Tuskegee Airmen and President George W. Bush had awarded the Congressional Gold Medal to the Tuskegee Airmen in 2007. What matters is that these Tuskegee Airmen battled the combined forces of Nazism and Jim Crow-ism, striking the idea of white supremacy a deathblow in the process.
And never mind that, of those currently flying in the US Military, less than two percent are Black (segregated flying units did allow black pilots and commanders to emerge, but with integration the high standards of flight excellence have proved too difficult for most black pilot school trainees). We must continue to honor the story of the Tuskegee Airmen as one of the primary foundational myths of this new, more inclusive civilization that America has become.

Had John F. Kennedy not been assassinated, one of the first men to walk on the moon might have been a negro astronaut deliberately picked by his administration to be part of the astronaut training programing because he was a black man.
The Kennedy Administration found their magic flying negro: the only problem was Dwight couldn’t pass the requirements to be an astronaut. From Phelps book, we learn Colonel Chuck Yeager was the one man who dared judge Ed Dwight by the content of his character instead of giving him an immediate, Kennedy Administration approved pass because of the advantageous color of his skin:
Meanwhile, Colonel Yeager’s dim view of Dwight’s abilities grew. Yeager later maintained that Dwight’s abilities were so lacking “we set up a special tutoring program to get him through the academics, as I recall, he lacked the engineering [background] that the other students had.”
Yeager further observes that Dwight worked hard, as did his tutors, but adds that “Dwight just couldn’t hack it… didn’t keep up in flying.” Yeager claims to have worked with Dwight on his flying, but he noted that “our students were flying at levels really beyond his experience. The only prejudice against Dwight,” Yeager recalls, wagging a literary finger," was the conviction that he was not qualified to be in the school" in the first place. (p. 20)
For his trouble in not placing Dwight high enough in the training program, Yeager was called before multiple Civil Rights inquiries, who hounded him with a tenacity not seen until Eric “My People” Holder’s Department of Justice got a hold of George Zimmerman.
This isn’t a joke.
Yes, NASA at its earliest stages had already been infiltrated by the Black-Run America (BRA) virus. Had Kennedy not been assassinated, who knows how many more blacks would have been pushed into NASA? [Where We Were: A portrait of America on November 22, 1963 during the last innocent hours before John F. Kennedy was murdered, People Magazine, 9-28-1988]:
Waiting his turn at the helm of a flight simulator at a Boeing plant in Seattle, Ed Dwight, 30, sips his coffee in silence and listens as a dozen of his fellow astronaut-trainees banter among themselves. The first black accepted in the space program, Dwight feels like a pariah. Sure, some of the guys sidle up to him occasionally. He assumes they figure it might be to their advantage to stay on good terms with him, since President Kennedy has taken a personal interest in his career. But others, Dwight believes, have decided to give him the cold shoulder. Despite having logged more than 2,000 hours as an Air Force test pilot, Dwight himself sometimes jokes that President Kennedy “picked me out of a turnip patch” to become an astronaut. But he will never forget how deeply honored he felt in November 1961, when he received a personal letter from Kennedy asking him to apply for the space program. Come what may, he plans to prove himself worthy of his Commander in Chief’s high regard.
Three days after the assassination Ed Dwight was unceremoniously dropped from the astronaut training program. “When my protector was killed, I was out,” he says.
Ebony magazine would go deeper into just what the Kennedy Administration had with their token, hand-selected black astronaut candidate. [The Sculptor who would have gone into space, February 1984]:
Dwight believes Kennedy’s death had everything to do with his doom as an astronaut candidate. “It was 100 percent the death of Kennedy,” he says. “Prior to Kennedy’s death I was living awfully high on the hog. I had a private secretary. I was sending out 5,000 press photographs a month, and I made 176 speeches the first year I was in [the astronaut training program at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif.].” The Kennedy Administration tried to break away from the White-Protestant-male mold for its astronauts in the 1961 by including one black.

Black mutiny, riots, fragging in the military
An Australian historian has uncovered hidden documents which reveal that African American troops used machine guns to attack their white officers in a siege on a US base in north Queensland in 1942.
Racists say the title hides the race of the perpetrator, but at least here the truth is laid out
Information about the Townsville mutiny has never been released to the public.
But the story began to come to light when James Cook University's Ray Holyoak first began researching why US congressman Lyndon B Johnson visited Townsville for three days back in 1942.
What he discovered was evidence detailing one of the biggest uprisings within the US military.
"For 70 years there's been a rumour in Townsville that there was a mutiny among African-American servicemen. In the last year and a half I've found the primary documentation evidence that that did occur in 1942," Mr Holyoak told AM.
During World War II, Townsville was a crucial base for campaigns into the Pacific, including the Battle of the Coral Sea.
About 600 African-American troops were brought to the city to help build airfields.
Mr Holyoak says these troops, from the 96th Battalion, US Army Corps of Engineers, were stationed at a base on the city's western outskirts known as Kelso.
This was the site for a large-scale siege lasting eight hours, which was sparked by racial taunts and violence.
"After some serial abuse by two white US officers, there was several ringleaders and they decided to machine gun the tents of the white officers," Mr Holyoak said.
He has uncovered several documents hidden in the archives of the Queensland Police and Townsville Brigade detailing what happened that night.
According to the findings, the soldiers took to the machine guns and anti-aircraft weapons and fired into tents where their white counterparts were drinking.
More than 700 rounds were fired.
At least one person was killed and dozens severely injured, and Australian troops were called in to roadblock the rioters.
Mr Holyoak also discovered a report written by Robert Sherrod, a US journalist who was embedded with the troops.
It never made it to the press, but was handed to Lyndon B Johnson at a Townsville hotel and eventually filed away into the National Archives and Records Administration.
"I think at the time, it was certainly suppressed. Both the Australian and the US government would not have wanted the details of this coming out. The racial policies at the time really discluded [sic] people of colour," Mr Holyoak says.
A Queensland historian has uncovered the story of a mutiny by African-American troops stationed in Australia during World War II at an army base outside Townsville. The armed rebellion by 600 soldiers, brought to northern Australia to build airfields, was a product of the racism of the US army.
Tensions had simmered for months as two white officers serially abused the troops. Then claims an African-American sergeant had died at the hands of a white officer saw them reach boiling point. The troops armed themselves with machine guns and anti-aircraft weapons and set out to kill their commander, Captain Williams. Several hundred rounds were fired at his tent but he escaped by diving into a trench. The discovery by Ray Holyoak, a researcher at James Cook University, shed light on a cover up that had lasted 70 years. Local rumours about the mutiny had circulated for decades. Holyoak found documents hidden in the archives of the Queensland Police and the Townsville Brigade, which confirmed a 1942 report amongst the documents of Lyndon Johnson, later US President. He had visited Australia as a Congressman during the war to investigate the incident.US military/bq
