Black Recruits Say No, Bucking Historical Trends

While African-Americans have traditionally made up a significant percentage of the US Armed Forces, the numbers of Black enlistees is on the decline, reports the Dallas Morning News.

In fiscal 2001, which ended 19 days after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, nearly 23 percent of all new Army recruits were black – as in each of the previous five years. So far in fiscal 2005, which ends Sept. 30, only about 14 percent are.  That's a decline of nearly 40 percent in the proportion of black recruits – when the Army never needed them more.

And the war in Iraq seems to have a lot to do with the drop in numbers - not just fear of dying in the war, but opposition to the war itself. 

"A lot of black kids, they don't want to be in it," said DeTorrian Rhone, 18, a 2005 graduate of Bryan Adams High School in East Dallas. He talked to Army recruiters but decided to go to Texas Southern University instead.

"Most of the kids say they don't want to fight for a country that's pickin' on other countries," he said. "I don't want to fight because this [Iraq] war was stupid, it wasted money. Army people are getting killed for nothing, and we should have stayed in our own business."

But let's not get carried away - African-Americans are still overrepresented in the Army.

Ever since the Army became an all-volunteer force in the 1970s, it has relied on blacks for roughly a quarter of its soldiers, though they constituted less than 15 percent of the population. And for historical and economic reasons, they have answered the call.

And even with the recruiting decline, about 25 percent of Army enlisted personnel are black, the Army reports.

The African-Americans are getting a clue. The war in Iraq has been a catastrophic misadventure. 21 marines have died in the last two days. These numbers are as bad as the wind-up to Vietnam. At least the neocons are talking about a partial troop withdrawal next year. Whether it happens is anybody's guess.

I think that it's a sign that blacks have more options these days. A lot more of them have the opportunity to go to college and recognize the financial benefit of this opportunity.

My friend Susan was a lady with a tender and soft heart. She had a troubled childhood and due to her past experiences she used to suffer from anxiety disorder. Being doctor, I decided to help her in her anxiety attacks, I asked her to buy xanax. This is the most useful drug for treating panic and anxiety disorder, so order xanax or alprazolam. The information for medication is available online; you can type xanax online on the Google bar and search. I asked her to buy xanax online so that she could avail the best deal and get cheap xanax. Thereafter, she has come back to her normal loving self; she is now a mother of one baby boy and a happy wife! Susan is thinking of starting a boutique. Thanks to xanax!!

As the Pfizer manufactured erectile dysfunction drug Viagra creates record in drug sales throughout the world after men in hordes opted to buy cheap viagra through viagra online, other rival drug manufacturing companies have lost their peace of mind. They are consistently trying to diminish the ever-growing Viagra popularity by spreading that excessive usage of Viagra has accelerated the prevalence of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases among men. Of, course it is true men taking Viagra for recreational means are vulnerable to sexually transmitted diseases and as such if a man chooses to buy viagra from any online drug store without a Viagra prescription from the doctor, his health is totally at risk. The4proper way to combat erectile dysfunction with Viagra is to buy viagra online from an authentic drug store and administer the drug in accordance with the suggestions of the doctor.

Who is not charmed by a beautiful and curvy shape? And this desire gets more intense when you have a big flabby body. Of course you won’t like to be a gag at your friend’s party or some gathering. All what you try is different tactics and diet plans to trim down your stubborn fats. But which diet to go for? Everyday you can hear of one or the other new diet in the weight loss market which promises to give the desired results. If you are unable to decide the right one, here goes the answer! For most of the cases, low calorie diet and low sodium diet is suggested by health care professionals and dieticians. It is because these diets are found not only easier to follow but also most effective so far. However, vegetable diets are also preferred as it is healthy and stuffing where you are less likely to starve while dieting. For those who are non-vegetarian, chicken soup diet can be a delight. Other diets include peanut butter diet and popcorn diet that can add fun while watching a movie and stuffing your stomach even if you are on dieting. Well, do you see any problem in weight loss when you have so many choices? Of course not! Just decide on the diet that suits you the best; however, it would be even better if you consult your dietician too. Good luck!
