    Well, I ain't always right but I've never been wrong,
    seldom turns out the way it does in a song.
    Once in a while you get shown the light
    in the strangest of places if you look at it right.

    Already made arrangements to be home the rest of the week after the elections. I don't look for much trouble here in Indiana, but disgruntled people throwing rocks can still damage our cars.

    Your number is consistent with WikiPedia...but that is only a piece of the puzzle.

    Black Americans were more likely to be drafted than White Americans.[3] At the time, the Vietnam War saw the highest proportion of African-Americans soldiers.[2] Though comprising 11% of US population in 1967, African Americans were 16.3% of all draftees.[3] The majority of African Americans who were drafted were not conscripted, with 70% of Black draftees rejected from the Army.[4] In 1967, only 29% of African American subjects were eligible for conscription, compared to 63% of white subjects. That same year the armed services drafted 64% of the eligible African American subjects in comparison to the 31% of eligible white subjects drafted.[5]
    Project 100,000, which helped dramatically increase US troop presence in Vietnam from 23,300 in 1965 to 465,600 two years later, sharply increased the number of African American troops drafted. By lowering the education standards of the draft, an estimated 40% of the 246,000 draftees of Project 100,000 were Black.[6] A total of 300,000 African-Americans served in Vietnam.[5] According to Daniel Lucks the reason behind the high turnout was the pay, which for many, was more than they had ever made in their lives, and that young African Americans "perceived military service as a vocational opportunity, and they had the additional incentive to enlist to prove on the battlefield that they were worthy of their newly acquired civil rights."[5]

    I don't care what Donald did or thought in 1960's. McCain served nobly then, but ultimately became petty and self-important and let that drive his politics to the detriment of the country. It's what the Donald thought and did for the last four years, and what he will do for the next four years that counts. Donald will raise up the nation. Biden's handlers will destroy it.
