Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Get this. The DOD website measures how many high school graduates of each race join the Army.

But you don't have to be a high school grad to enlist.

In many American cities, only 50% of African-American students graduate High School.

I'm HIGHLY suspicious of that DOD website.

They also have an annual report on the make up of the armed forces, which simply counts by race and compares to the 18-40 age group in the civilian population.

I wonder though, given their other fooling, if there is some omission there.
