Here is an excerpt from this history news article / news audio:

Though more than a million Black Americans contributed to the war effort, historian Matthew Delmont says a uniform was no protection from racism at home or abroad.

His new book is Half American.

DAVE DAVIES, HOST:

This is FRESH AIR. I’m Dave Davies, in for Terry Gross.

When you see movies about World War II and photos of Allied campaigns against the Axis powers, the American military personnel depicted are almost entirely white.

But more than a million Black men and women served in World War II, fighting at Normandy, Iwo Jima and the Battle of the Bulge, and serving in support roles that were critical to the Allies’ success.

Our guest, historian Matthew F. Delmont, has a new book about the African American experience in World War II.

And it isn’t limited to their contributions to the war effort.

Delmont describes the discrimination Black Americans faced in the military and in civilian defense industries, and the brutality many Black servicemen suffered when stationed near white communities that resented their presence.

Delmont writes that African Americans didn’t receive many of the benefits Congress bestowed on service members in the GI Bill, but many were energized and enlightened by their experiences in the war and later became active in the civil rights movement.

Matthew Delmont is the Sherman Fairchild distinguished professor of history at Dartmouth College.

He’s the author of four previous books and has written for The New York Times, The Atlantic and other publications.

His new book is “Half American: The Epic Story Of African-Americans Fighting World War II At Home And Abroad.”

Moving Forward – Eren Yeager’s WORDS

Moving Forward – Eren Yeager’s WORDS

What Is It?

The YouTube video Moving Forward – Eren Yeager’s WORDS by the YouTube channel Biraj Senpai.

Here is the description for this video:

Eren’s Words on Freedom and Moving Forward from Attack on Titan Season 4.

Character Synopsis (from MAL):
Eren is Shingeki no Kyojin’s protagonist. His childhood friend, Mikasa, notes on numerous occasions that he acts on impulse without thinking things through, and she often pulls/carries/throws him when he starts fighting with others to protect him from himself. Along with Mikasa, he tends to spend his free time with their mutual friend, Armin.

Spoiler ON Eren’s Character:
When Eren was a child, he saved Mikasa from being sold off when a visit to her home with his father. Three men—killers of her parents—were in her house, and he killed two of them—one by slitting his throat and the other by charging at with a quickly assembled spear. Mikasa herself killed the third man after Eren urged her to fight, whilst the man strangled Eren. After this, he gave Mikasa his scarf and Eren’s father took Mikasa into their family.

Later, when the Colossal Titan broke through Wall Maria, the debris from this attack scattered and hurtled towards his home. He could only watch on as his mother—trapped under the rubble of their house—was eaten by a titan. This event lit the fire of revenge within Eren that he would kill every giant and not live a life cowering in fear.

Sometime after this—before the time skip that jumped a few years ahead, to when he became a soldier—his father injected him with something. It’s unknown what at this time, but it turns out, because of the injection, Eren can utilize the ability to transform into a titan himself (which explains how his limbs were able to regenerate) with side effects of a high fever and massive stamina drain.

The war was still going on, and a shootout was taking place between soldiers outside in a field with trees & bushes et cetera.
