DADT Discriminates Against Gays … And Blacks?


Yup! Actually, not just blacks, but all racial minorities. American soldiers discharged under Don’t Ask Don’t Tell aren’t just being kicked out under a policy that targets gays, but data shows non-whites are disproportionately getting booted.

People of color account for 29 percent of active duty troops, and yet 45 percent of those kicked out in 2008 (640 total) came from that demographic, according to Servicemembers United, the legal defense fund representing folks like Dan Choi all-veteran advocacy group that Dan Choi belongs to.

But how pleasant is it to know that discrimination is alive and well … in a policy of discrimination!
