    1. People of all races already serve openly in the military so what they say in an anonomous poll is sad but probably has little consequence at this point.  If that polling result was before POC were allowed to serve with whites...I would have the same response...lets have a careful implementation plan there as well
    1. Having a good training and education program will prevent bad things from happening and will likely save lives even some gay people's lives.
    1. Just because there are other problems between those who are different does not mean we should not strive to do a better job with integrating gays into the military on an open basis...

      That 60 years after racial integration 15% of troops are still suspect about the question of race, only goes to show you that 25% being suspect of gays is a molehill you are trying to make into a mountain.

      @AlmightyGod Blasphemy is a victimless crime.

      •  So it would probably be a good idea... (0+ / 0-)

        to include some sensitivity training for diversity of ethnicity and color too...but that does not mean you roll back the integration during that training...

        It makes a lot of sense if you were not so emotional about it...

        25% is huge...in a survey like this...

        If a company had an issue with 25% of its employees...they would be in emergency mode and of course they don't carry automatic weapons...

        You really want to do this without any planning and education and just take our chances that the M-16 won't be blowing off the head of a gay person???

        How insensitive of you...
