That article is a joke. It's not even real journalism. When did recruiters say this? Which recruiter said this? Which study found that they had said this? Minorities are under represented in the military..particularly the officer Corps and combat arms jobs. The military actively goes out of its way to change this. A rather large scandal has hit the Naval Academy which has clearly shown that less qualified minority applicants are being accepted in order to meet quotas because the Navy/Marine Corps has an abnormally high number of white volunteers. The author of your article is misinformed at best, and judging by the website, likely purposelly skewing the truth. Where are his facts? This is purely the author's opinion and is unsupported. His clear political slant hurts his credibility even more. Look at this silliness. This article has no substantiated facts. The author: What kind of credentials are those? Anne Marlowe graduated from Harvard and Columbia. She's published several books and hundreds of articles. She's also a journalist who reports around the world. Not some Adj. Professor. Either way, she backed up her assertions, your author didn't. Your website is also has a clear political agenda as NPR descirbes it in the following http://www.npr.org/programs/atc/features/2001/jul/010702.karr.html I disputed your artciel, dispute mine. Show me howthe facts she listed are incorrect.
