This still does not explain how the author of the book came to the conclusion that those "Black Luftwaffe Pilots" were deported to concentration camps.
I guess what I really meant to say is, The writer is full of krap. I thought about it, and thought about it, and the only way I could extrapolate his statement is that the writer might have heard the words "Black Men" and "Luftwaffe" somewhere, and came up with "Pilots". I have no doubt that there were Black people in Nazi Germany, and their fates were probably as he described, horrible. But a Black Luftwaffe pilot?....naahhhh, thats just BS.
I don't know about you guys, but I see or hear this kind of junk, in what would seem to be coming from a reputuble publication, website, or person, a couple of times a month or more. Where I'm from, it seems like history is being revised on a daily basis to fit a political angle, a monetary angle, or to just sharpen an axe. With the generations (now) of historical, and just plain academic, retards, coming out of the school systems here, garbage statements like the one our "writer" wrote, are rapidly becoming an historical "fact", just because it was printed, and it fits an ideology/axe sharpener. The only lesson these being's (I'm being polite) have learned from history, WWII history, is how to twist history to fit an ideology, and apparently they learned from the master of propaganda of that time.
Sorry about the rant dudes.
I've kind of already resigned myself to a future of listening to my grandchildren in my old age, tell me they learned in school today, that Gandalf, Winston Churchill, and the pink power ranger, spat fire (pun intended) to defeat the bla....AfricanGerman Luftwaffe squadron at the Battle of Britain.
