I think that minorities and women are capable of being ineffective leaders just as much as the current white male top brasses.

In that case, we should all do our part to make Allen West the Commander in Chief.

"the report says that 77 percent of senior officers in the active duty military are white"

Do we need more than 77% to reflect the U.S. population numbers?

"White persons, percent, 2009 (a) 79.6% "

its a volunteer military, maybe the agitators can put their money where their mouth is and volunteer


on the same note it is sad to hear people still judge others on race , I've served under NCO's and officers of various ethnicities , and i've never judged anyones leadership ability on their race or gender

I learned in economics that bad money will drive good money out of circulation.

I'm sure that that works for other things, too.

I'd rather see TV's Adam West as the No. 1.

This report is utter BS & racially aggravating!

I spent 20 years, 51 days in the Military, I've known about 40 Officers that were
a minority or female.
The numbers are being manipulated because of the high number of "whites" in the military.

If there had been a "poor white boy college fund" I would have went to college & not the military at 17 years old.

I don't have a problem with any race of man being in authority over our men and women in the military.But I do have a problem with women leading our men in the military.Its a religion thing...flame away.

I look around and saw our grunt battalions and they are overwhelmingly (90%+) white.

I would say that many number signed up as contract 0300's as well.

Why don't minorities ever volunteer for combat units?
