Well they didn't get treated as well as a white soldier would have been. What time period are you studying ? O_o
IM HOME SCHOOLING.
well well okay then O_O it'd help if I knew what war you were studying because the conditions for minority soldiers have changed.
well, I think its the Great War.
Oh okay, that helps. :) As the people of the United States watched World War I ignite across Europe, African American citizens saw an opportunity to win the respect of their white neighbors. America was a segregated society and African Americans were considered, at best, second class citizens. Yet despite that, there were many African American men willing to serve in the nation’s military, but even as it became apparent that the United States would enter the war in Europe, minorities were still being turned away from military service. Minorities were not treated with the same respect that white soldiers would have been given. They were down graded, and were seen as less important and worthy of doing jobs that white soldiers did. Even if they could do them better. They were not allowed to serve the same way other soldiers were.
