  1. 1. No hard evidence that Chuck Yeager actually said that. So part of this video is based on a myth
    2. Guy looks about half white. He's really mixed at best. I think the one drop rule is BS, the other part of their ancestry should also be acknowledged.

  2. The people who don’t believe POC when they call out the corruption of certain power structures are the ones who have never experienced it themselves or don’t understand why it would be done in the first place so they can’t fathom it. They wouldn’t do it so why would anyone else? Racism is extremely complicated so if you don’t get it, just listen and try to understand another’s experience/perspective. Do not negate it.

  3. Who's to say, but Yeager was from the deep south, he grew up in the '30's and we all know what it was like there, back then.

  4. "Edward Dwight Jr. was an ace combat pilot"… No, he wasn't. When anybody starts out a video with a falsity, how can they earn back any credibility?

  5. he didn't want someone in the program who's qualification was being black ! like they would give whoever qualification that they were ordered to ! just like if any one else was cake walked in ! like a senators son or whatever ! you wouldn't fly with snoop at the control would you ! just because the president ordered you to !!! !
