Military Race Relations

The Pentagon today released the results of a survey on racism conducted among 40,000 men and women in the armed services. The survey found 75 percent of minority group members feel they have experienced racial discrimination in the service. But the report also found that most blacks, Hispanics and Asians in the service think they would encounter even more discrimination if they were in civilian occupations. NPR's Steve Inskeep reports.
