Rangel wanted to make service in the military a racial issue by instituting a draft to force enlistment from the wealthy and priv[i]leged. Just what we need, another Jean F. Kerry.
Can this be another form of black-and-white thinking and bigotry--to presuppose wealth and/or privileged background excludes minorities of any imagined sort; and, those born within families noted for their wealth are incapable of serving equally well.
