“I’m honestly afraid to get out of the car,” ~ Lieutenant Nazario

“You should be.” ~ Joe Gutierrez, Windsor PD

“I’m actively serving this country and this is how you’re going to treat me? What’s going on?” ~ Lieutenant Nazario

“What’s going on is you’re fixing to ride the lightning, son,” ~ Gutierrez, Windsor PD

Being a Black Soldier in America is hard (due to white supremacy)

I will have to admit that this scenario hits me hard.

The U.S. Army needs to talk about this, seriously and honestly

Army EO Policy is where racism is formally addressed. In Army EO (Equal Opportunity) policy, the Army will train a Soldier all day on the proper procedures of filing a formal or informal complaint. The Army loves to drill troops to know how many calendar days a commander has to respond, and other procedural, bureaucratic knowledge. But they won’t talk about the history of racism in America, especially certain regions in these confederate states where most of these U.S. bases reside.
