Well, yes, except in Vietnam, where Army couldn't get enough of poverty-stricken blacks. So, yes, you can say that the Army doesn't discriminate against non-whites.

And, personally, this isn't quite surprising; it's a simply fact that multiple deployments will only drive one to commit an act such as this. Apparently, the rampant increase in the military personnel suicide rate hasn't massively revamped the handling of the mental health of veterans, so I'll wait and see if a massacre such as this does. I'd probably elicit a "No" out of it all, but that's just me.
