Be polite. Be professional, but have a plan to kill everyone you meet.

As a black man and military person, I bet you do! :lol:

The "wistfulness" in the tone of the title reminds me of when the
British and Northern Irish was battling in Ulster(?). I think it was
Mother Jones, but am not sure (can't imagine any other magazine
printing that picture).... anyhoo, on the cover was a picture of a
black solider from one of England's colonies, with rifle in hand,
detaining a group of white, bloodied Irishmen with hands upraised
(one Irishman, another black soldier had grabbing by his collar, the
Irishman's hands upraised in surrender). It was the first time IN MY
LIFE that I had ever seen such an "image." And I found it shocking
(like I'm sure, most viewers here will be shocked ). I took it to an
informal, black nationalist gathering to show to the speaker. Came in
late, so just laid it on the table before him and sat down. Well, ole
boy's eyes popped when he saw that cover! Another brutha saw
this and stepped up to investigate. His eyes popped, as well.
Lecturer nearly stopped his talk when he thought the brutha was
going to take the magazine!

So, yea, I'm sure you do "wish there were more images like these." :tu:
