Military Recruiters Continue To Target Minority Youth

Military recruiters continue to disportionately target youths in the Hispanic community according to ongoing complaint's by parents and others in this community. Historically there is a strong sense of both patriotism and national pride for America in the Hispanic community, compared to a weaker national identity of Americanism in the general high school age population, and this has spurred military to recruiters to show up at the same mainly Hispanic high schools on a daily basis compared to schools to wealthier districts where military recruiters are seldom ever seen.

Unfortunately economic, race and ehnic factors figure largely into the military recruiters goals to find the manpower to continue the Iraq War as it continues to take American lives.
