Im just wondering. I'm really not racist. Just curious to why this happens. I was in from September '04 - Sept '08. I never seen hit though until I hit the fleet. I at the time was a PFC when I first got to my unit. We had a black 1st. Sgt. Who loved nothing more than to shred every white marine he could. "SAY SOMETHING BOY!" "GET YO PASTEY ASS UP BITCH" etc...just stuff like that. For absolutely no reason. He would even do this to nco's. But a black private could walk in, & I swear it looked like a BET video. I actually seen the private give the 1st. Sgt. One of those cool hand shakes with the snap at the end followed by a "HOW THEY TREATIN YOU OVER THERE YOUNG BLOOD?" "SHHH 1st Sgt. You KNOW DEM BOYS AINT FUCKIN WITH YA BOY. I DONT DO WORKING PARTIES OR SHT!" Then they would both laugh about it. If I walked up to one of my staff nco's when I was in, said "what's good dog? And then stuck out my hand, I would probably get chopped on the throat and then njpD. I'm just wondering if it's still the same and why people let this happen.

Devil, I know exactly what you mean. Thier Fathers and Grandfathers may have had good reason for actions such as you discribe. But they don't. They are just taking advantage of white people anyway they can. Why? because they can. You see it everywhere. They have a serious inferior complex that is well earned.

News flash Devil, that just isnt the Marine Corps. I was in at a similar time frame to you and now work the gov. That shit is like that in EVERY branch of service. It is the way they were raised and then made rank and can finallt "flex" their racist muscles and hide behind rank. It's old news and always will be. That type of crap will never change.

Because you see ONE ignorant ass Marine of "color" doesn't make EVERY single BLACK Marine an ass! I married a BLACK MARINE and he is a damn good one! Doesn't discriminate at all, does all he can for his Marines and is very respectful to his command and subordinates! This ignorant behavior exhibited here is as to say every white man is a racist pig, redneck etc when in fact that would not only be DUMB but it would be FALSE! I have had uncles (3) who all served the US ARMY. One has over 20+ years in and hasn't had it easy has actually had it hard to make it to where he is "pushing pens & flipping papers". Affirmative action hasn't changed a single thing except for allowing SOME ppl of color to get LAZY & others to push beyond and obviously from THIS, some bitter! I'm appalled by these things because I know SEVERAL Marines here and other bases of color who bust their asses to make rank and KEEP it!
What is truly disturbing about all of this is seeing & knowing my husband goes the EXTRA mile to ensure his uniforms are in tip top shape, he's groomed to the max on all occasions yet it boils down to he has it easy because he is "black".
SO Let me guess, more white men die in Afghan and Iraq because of the same thing too??
To add in closing, I do NOT condone the behavior you speak of and regardless of the white, black, Mexican, Haitian or Indian or "OTHER" ANY and ALL Military personnel should show exemplary behavior at ALL TIMES not become "lax" because their "dog/dawg" just came! What's good for one is good for ALL!

well there BLACK mel, your husband is a 1 in a 1000 type of guy. "Typically" the black marines are more likely to be disrespectful and lazy. Not because of color persay, but because of the way they were raised and by the way the society and TV has put how to be "cool" into their heads. Most don't want to step up and think for themselves, they are conformist to their majority. If one guy sees another one disrespect a white guy with higher rank he too will emulate that behavior because he is now "cool". Their "heros" they see on MTV or buy their CD's...rappers...are all still telling them in certain ways to be a racist. Blacks in general are still the ones that grip ever so tightly to that race card and can't wait to throw it down in someones face the first chance they get. They are the ones holding on to racism and keeping it alive. Hell...look at some roll model...Jessie jackson, Al shapton, Kanye west, Loius Farakahn....real people, keeping real racism alive and well through the media. Aimed directly at young black men to keep their old school ways of thinking alive. Truely sad that they cannot seem to open their eyes and stop following these false profits.

I'm a black Marine, that knows black Marines, that has served under black Marines, and leads black Marines and I object.

If anyone has it better, it's the white Marines. The Marine Corps, last to intergrate. White Marines make up the majority of the Marine Corps, it's not even close. So that makes this a White Good old boys club.

Personal experience (just like yours), every unit I've been to, I've been surrounded by whit Marines. When white Marines are the majority, they'll be as racist as they want to be. All of their sentences start off with "I'm not racist but..." As if rural East Carolina wasn't chalked full of enough racist, white Marines get caught in the culture.

^keep telling yourself that line of crap. Black dudes are the only ones allowed to diddy bop around and put that gangsta tilt on their cover and nobody can say shit for fear of being called a racist for correcting a shitbag. You guys are real good at getting away with looking like a bag of ass due to the fact that you slap that race trump card on everyone that even attempts to correct you.

So I'm going to assume that everyone in cowboy boots and hats with skin tight wranglers is learning that from CMT OR RODEO SHOWS!! Not!!! What you're doing here is the general stereotypical bullshit that creates racial barriers!!! I'm part white and black, my husband doesn't eat fried chicken and watermelon every day of summer and we nor anyone we know of color is "following" media!!! This Is by far the most ignorant, racial and might I add cantankerous posting I've read on here yet! I assume we were all raised poorly?? In "the hood"?? Single parent homes?? Not!! And I mean none of the above!! In SF alone its not the black ppl stealing and on drugs hardcore It's white ppl but I suppose that's how you were raised as well!! Smfh

Your response exhibits why you had it hard in the Marine Corp. It's your own behavior. Take responsibility for your actions.

Hey Mel, advice for ya. GET OUT OF THAT LITTLE CAVE YOU LIVE IN. Open your eyes and step out of that small circle you are living in. If you actually look around you will see what I am talking about. If you are going by what someone else says and not seeing for yourself, then you are blind posting. Go out and sit back and just observe and then you can see for yourself why I say what I say. I am an observer, and can see the BS and i shake my head in disbeleif. Open your eyes and look around. See the "stereotype" that everyone seems to want to live up to.

Yeah it's no joke. I can't "Diddy bop" up to another white nco and "chill" but I see black marines "swaggin'" up to snco's & NCOs all the time. "what up folk?" "what's good brother?" and I just stand there in disbelief as I get told to "grab that mop boy".

Only a dumb ass would go off of hearsay!! Why surely there are idiots in every shade of the rainbow! I for one am not in a cave nor imagining some grand facade of a world! I have observed and I have had other black marines at our home and I tell my husband that clown better never set foot here again however there are white marines That I've stated the same. I'm simply saying you're classifying an entire race on select ppl! That's BULLSHIT! I have basically only ONE black friend here and her husband is navy and he doesn't diddy bop anything or anywhere or anyone! I only have one friend whose husband acts as a presentable service members supposed to.... He is white but so are all my friends husbands Including another black lady I associate with occasionally.... ALL of them stay in trouble, broke and cannot make it pay to pay! Focus is on The cave n bud light! There are SOME dumb asses PERIOD! Don't pull race on BULLSHIT! Ignorance is ignorance period!

Mel, if you are not actually in the military here, then you are the one going off of heresay. Can't take what anyone that you are related to says or friends with because you and they cannot be objective. Check out the sterotype copycats that hang out the mall or cruise through new river housing....that might open your eyes....somewhat.
