Washington Post: ‘‘They thought black soldiers couldn’t fight’ The tragic stories behind the executive order that eventually desegregated the U.S. armed forces’

The Washington Post essay doesn’t bother to make the case that integration helped to make the American military a more formidable fighting force. That is irrelevant to them.

I am sure that integration came at a price to blacks and to non-blacks.

There are more Native Americans in the Special Forces than blacks, yet the National Geographic TV show Six (about Seal Team Six) features as a main character a black man (played by Edwin Hodge) who graduated from Harvard.
