Ofcourse Some white people are quick to dismiss the black man’s talents.
Now if you know black history, you know us black people do it and we
do it better. We do it big. We are the meal, the snack, and the cake with
icing and sprinkles and a nice drink to go with it. We just outdo ourselves.
More black people should help other black people. It’s really a competition
with white people and black people. It’s not black people and black people.
That’s just how it’s set up.
Moving onto the story. The little people thought that African American
engineers were not skilled and industrious as White people. This is so not true. It was an
experiment done with white men and black men to work on the same
project. They did not want African Americans to work in cold climates.
Black men and white men worked on the same highway. Yet,
it was still segregated. The African American engineers were not
allowed to have bulldozers and other machinery. The 95th Engineer
Regiment, who was the final African American unit transferred to
the highway, had more experience operating equipment. Yet,
the all white people of the 35 regiment was given the machinery.
African Americans were given hand tools. You see how backwards
some people are? But the brilliant and bold African Americans
are so magnificent they can get something done with pure labor.
On October 25, 1953, an African American soldier and
a white bulldozer driving soldier shook hands. This was the
final link of the Alaska Highway! They were photographed
as equals coming together to beat the Axis Powers.
It was now 1942, when the highway was completed.
The engineers who had labored so hard and were transferred to
other arenas in the war, including the South Pacific
and Europe. There, thirty men died during the construction
of the highway. Memorials for the veterans are spread
throughout the highway, including the Black Veterans
Memorial Bridge, which came into effect in 1993.
Thus, it was truly hard work to work on this project.
This is just one instance of black people and white people
