RAPPRESENTANTE. DAN CRENSHAW: Sicuramente non penso che i militari siano razzisti. It’s probably one of the least racist institutions in America, se non il mondo, è davvero un posto dove il colore della tua pelle, il tuo genere, your background can be set aside and meritocracy takes hold and you move up based on your own skill sets, based on your own judgment, based on your own leadership qualities.
We see that time and time again proven in a place like the military, and what is inclusive about the military? Bene, the fact that we all have the same standards, the fact that we wear the same uniforms, the fact that we sing the same songs… So there’s a cultural identity that takes place in the military, which is actually really hard to emulate anywhere else, but it happens in the military. That’s what we should be talking about when we say the military is inclusive.
