BLACKS DIVEST IN AMERICA:



The Gulf War, Desert Storm. 1. The New York Times, 1991.

Defense Department statistics show, account for nearly 25 percent of the American troops in the Persian Gulf and almost 30 percent of Army troops there.


Despite their numbers in the armed forces, blacks make up 12 percent of the nation's civilian population. And as the gulf conflict moves closer to ground combat, a painful debate has divided many blacks about young blacks' role in the war and in the military.

The statistics documenting the number of blacks in the gulf have stirred a deep well of resentment and anger in some blacks who fear that their community will pay disproportionately for a war that many of them do not support.


The most recent New York Times/ CBS News Poll, conducted Jan. 17-20, asked 3,002 adults whether they favored starting military action or continuing the use of economic sanctions. The 250 blacks in the poll split about evenly on the question, and whites favored military action by a 4-to-1 ratio. And in a vote four days before the war started, all the black Democrats in Congress were against the measure authorizing force in the gulf.


Some black critics of the war say they are bitter that their sons and daughters are being sent to war by an Administration that they see as being insensitive to members of minority groups. Others say problems like drugs and crime in this country are more important than Kuwait but will not receive attention because of the preoccupation with the war. And with a fervor reminiscent of the civil rights movement, some are forming antiwar groups to discourage more blacks from joining the military.



The Afghan War, 2. Blackagenda.com, Ken Morgan, August Thirty first, 2017.

Blacks and the War Against Afghanistan. Black troops as much as twice as likely to be punished by commanders, courts. The researchers found that the Marine Corps had some of the most significant issues with race, particularly in instances where the harshest penalties are possible.. In an average year, black Marines were 2.6 times more likely than whites to receive a guilty finding at a general court martial, the military judicial proceeding for more serious offenses. The data also show that guilty findings overall plummeted over that period, peaking in 2010, a period that coincided with peak deployments to war zones in Afghanistan and Iraq.


Black oppression and U.S. global imperialism are complements. What do all of these things mean for black people? We need to see Trump’s actions in the larger context of U.S. and worldwide imperialism. He is not just some crazy, racist bigot. It is all part of the same package. Black oppression and U.S. global imperialism are complements.


According to a complaint filed Racial slurs and a noose strung up outside black barracks were among the alleged harassment to African Americans during the war in Afghanistan.


Eliminate “we” when black people talk about America’s imperialist wars. Remember Tonto’s newfound awareness. The Lone Ranger and Tonto found themselves surrounded by indigenous people in the song “What you mean we white man.” Replace white man with “owner of the wealth and means of production white man.”


Alleged harassment began after physical abuse of black subordinate soldiers was reported by an officer in Afghanistan in 2009.


We need a 365-day independent, anti-imperialist, anti-capitalist, anti-racist, anti-sexist and anti-homophobic black working class led party. A black coalition with similar pedigree will do for now.
