Tuskegee Airmen Memorial honors what Black men can achieve

ULISH CARTER Think about it. It’s during the 1940s when Blacks are looked upon as dumb monkeys; if not intelligent enough to fight on the front lines, how could they possibly be able to fly plans, let alone be fighter pilots? Black people were not considered to be intelligent enough to hold jobs such as doctors, lawyers, policemen, or any other position that required any kind of intelligence, including sports. They were considered to be just a shade above monkeys.
