    •  And that took place on normandy beach? (0+ / 0-)

      That was Pat's actual statement. That close to all of the casualties on Normandy were white men (as were the losers)..it's sort of the european theater. heh.  Not really unexpected.   You'd probably be hard pressed to find a non-white american group that didnt have some representation in WWII, but the casualties will still overwhelmingly be european.  Because they were the overwhelming majority in the country.  I don't see how it's offensive.

      Demographics may be changing but the country was like that.  And he even mentions discrimination keeping the other 10% away from the bench so I dont quite get the outrage.

      He mentions demographics and discrimination.  WHat answer is he supposed to give? heh.
