A Tuskegee airman reflects on racism

Here is a sad reflection from the oldest of the living Tuskegee airmen.  Firstly sad because, despite his service to country during the Second World War, he was excluded from civilian jobs and full civic and economic participation in his country after the war.  And secondly because, with his 102 years of experience, he feels that racism is a pernicious problem that doesn't seem to go away.
