Racism in America hasn’t disappeared | The Herald-Sun

Deondre McCullough's insight:

Racism is still going on today as It was back then. Racism is not as strong as It was back then because there is laws protecting different races. Even though the tuskegee airmen were fighting in the war , they were still not accepted by the white community, they could not even train with the white airmen. Today there is still racism going on , some people believe that racism should be brought back full flege.

On January 16th 1941, the War Department announced the creation of the 99th Pursuit Squadron. This was to be an all black flying unit trained at the Tuskegee Institute founded in Tuskegee, Alabama by Booker T. Washington in 1881. Charles A. Anderson, a self-taught African American pilot had established a civilian pilot training program at the Institute in 1939. They both made way for the African American pilots today.
