I was raised by good Christian parents not to be rascist. I have never disliked anyone on the basis of their skin tone. The Navy reinforced that training. The problem is, a lot of people of a lot of colors are incompetent, lazy, or just palin a**holes. Some men say it’s rascist to say we are only to speak English on a navy vessel during working hours. One DC3 from my CG said I didn’t like him because he was black. Right in front of the DC Chief I told him that wasn’t it. “I don’t like you because you are an a**hole.” Chief loved it. This November, I am not voting based on skin color. I am voting on what’s best for my comrades in arms and me.
