Im pretty sure your overthinking it man, everyone not only white men have done things to protect their country.So what if white men are the majority of the military? That doesnt mean shit to me tbh

I was going to post my opinion on this thread, but everything that I wanted to say about it has pretty much been covered. Who cares? Everyone who's served is a Veteran, no matter who they are. I work in a place that gives Military and Veteran personnel a discount but we have to follow corporate rules for that discount. Sometimes I don't agree with how the policy is for it, but that doesn't mean that I'm going to come on here and complain about it.

Also, I only counted 13 people in that picture that you put up as an example total, and that is a very small sampling of the probably 1000's of Veterans that there are out there. So that's not exactly a good example. I think that the Google picture is trying to represent those Veterans that weren't always recognized before, like the people of color and the women that served. And I in no way think that it is disrespectful to anyone that has served their country.

We call them "truck drivers" but there are quite a few of them who are a part of the military. Driving a truck in a war zone is a very risky endeavor. They deserve to be honored, too.

As for the color of the people on the Google page I could care less. As if white people aren't usually the ones being over-represented in everything.

I just found this picture from 2014 if anyone interested..For anybody saying its not a big deal, it kind of is when a major tech company is going out of its way just to bash white people/ push an agenda, especially on day where a lot of remember their comrades who died in war...Let's be honest how many black females died fighting in WW2?

That's not what I can see when I go to google. All we get is one tiny tiny little poppy. Slightly offended

I honestly didn't even notice until you said something. I had to go to Google and check it out. I don't mind that they did this. To me a veteran is a veteran regardless of race.

I don't even know if you're trolling or not. I really don't; I can't even gauge whether or not it's because you're that ignorant, or if I can't tell because I'm that tired. It's kind of amusing and awe-inspiring just having the idea that you are even being serious with this comparison. Idk whether or not to take you seriously, but I'm going to go for it. Just on the off chance that you are. xD

I'll go ahead and start off by saying that this thread, regardless of your intentions, is obviously just flame bait. And if it was funny flame bait I wouldn't have even said anything and waited for it to get locked or die out but it's not even funny. Do you want to see a funny flame thread? Go find the gun rights one that died a while ago. And I don't even think the OP meant for that one to turn into what it did, but it ended up being a keyboard warrior battlefield.

Now, to start off with my reply, I'll add this tidbit.

So here's what you might be thinking at this point. 'Okay, then doesn't my topic fall under #2?'
Actually no, it does not. You have an opinion on the matter, but your opinion is not only formed under a trivial matter, it's formed from an outdated mindset, and it also leaves no room for discussion or even just to see the how and why other people differ from you.


Your opinion is "I don't like that everyone in the picture isn't a white male."

...

No seriously, that's it. No room for discussion, the only other possible opinion being 'well idc.'


To be honest, the only reason I even posted was so that hopefully even a few people would see it and stop themselves from feeding a very obvious troll and blowing up a thread that is not going to be meaningful in any way.

Okay. So let's assume you're not trolling, and you're just a bigot. Well, then I had hoped that people would stop themselves from pissing themselves off by arguing with a person who isn't going to change his mind on the matter, or even care that the voicing of his "opinion"(randomly and for no real reason being the main point of what makes the thread so pointless) is undoubtedly going to be offensive to some(especially if there are any veterans or people who know such veterans on the CR forums that were actually represented by google's image that you decided to go off on a whim and shitpost).

Once again, just out of the faint hope that this thread would die so that I can browse through interesting and meaningful threads whilst not having to go to the forum page because the homepage is cluttered with these nonsense ones.

-sigh- Either way, I hope this thread dies quickly so that I can continue wasting my time laughing at some of the things people say on these forums.

Also, I literally just found this video a few hours ago, and although he's complaining on a completely different matter, the principles that he is speaking out against are basically the same. I actually can't think of a better representation on what I thought when I read your OP, so my message to you is the same from the point I started you on(in the video) until 4:13. Do please take notes especially on what he says during 3:33-3:49.

Anyway, I guess this goes without saying, but if you reply to this whilst wearing your star spangled special snowflake baseball cap, or without contributing anything worth replying to, than you won't have to wait on a reply.
