Media Distortion

After all of these years, I just learned a fact about the Vietnam War. I remember hearing an almost constant accusation that the Vietnam War was being fought by the "black" soldiers and the "white" young men were staying home and going to college.

The facts: Out of over 58,000 American deaths in Southeast Asia, during the time of that conflict, just over 50,000 were white, about 7,000 were black.

Can we believe anything they have been telling us for a very long time?
