Quote from: quiller on August 28, 2013, 04:50:22 AMIn 1962, only two Navy enlisted occupations were open to Negro sailors: ship's cook and officers' steward (valet). By 1973 it had fully opened and has remained a principal training-ground (like the other branches) of a huge number of Americans of all colors, trying to improve their lives after their terms of service. If it helps people succeed, it simply has to be racist. If people succeed, they won't need Big Government any more. Just ask a Dem, holding down a job dishing services because everybody else is paying for them.
QuoteOn February 27, 1946, without fanfare, the Bureau of Naval Personnel issued Circular Letter 48-46 which prohibited all segregation in assignments, ratings, ranks, ships, facilities, and housing.
