You want a real hero? How about Floyd Carter Sr?

Sadly, you won't see him touted on Main Street in big Leftist cities because, after all, he was likely nothing more than an ancient Uncle Tom who fought for the US in World War II and, worse yet, worked as a detective for the New York Police Department. Another sellout. He had no idea how to keep anything real.

He didn't know what he was doing. He was addled. He was doddering. That's the excuse Leftist Blacks will make. Better yet, they'll ignore him entirely.

Floyd Carter Sr., one of the remaining Tuskegee Airmen and NYPD veteran, dies at 95

by Thomas Tracy and Larry McShane Floyd Carter Sr., one of the last of the Tuskegee Airmen, dedicated his remarkable life to serving his country and his city. The decorated veteran of three wars and 27 years with the NYPD died Thursday at age 95, leaving a long legacy as a groundbreaking hero pilot and a city police detective. Carter, who simultaneously rose through the ranks of the U.S. Air Force Reserves and the police, was honored in 2007 with the Congressional Gold Medal by President Bush for breaking the color barrier in Tuskegee. “We mourn the loss of a true American hero,” read a tweet from the 47th Precinct in his adopted home of the Bronx. “Our community & nation has lost a giant.”
"No," Leftist blacks will say, "we simply say goodbye to someone who means nothing any more and cooperated with our oppressors."
Carter rose to the rank of Air Force lieutenant colonel years after joining the group of African-American pilots at Tuskegee University. He met his wife Atherine there, where the Alabama native was working as part of an all-female repair crew. Carter wooed his bride-to-be on several dates in his plane, and they were married at the air base in 1945.
Note to today's American blacks: you have no idea of what daily life consisted for Floyd Carter Sr. You have no idea of the sacrifices he made and kept quiet. You have no idea of the discipline he possessed or the silent honor and pride he held resolutely inside.
In addition to serving during World War II, Carter flew during the Korean and Vietnam wars and led the first squadron of supply-laden planes into Berlin during the famed Cold War airlift of 1948-49. During the Tet Offensive, Carter flew U.S. troops and supplies into South Vietnam.
Do you understand what this man did? He served and flew in WWII, he served and flew in the Korean War, and he served and flew during the Vietnam War.
By the end of his tenure in 1974, he was commander of the 732nd Military Airlift Squadron at McGuire Air Force Base in New Jersey.
My father served and flew in WWII and Vietnam. He did not serve during the Korean War. And Carter became the commander of an entire AF squadron.
Carter joined the NYPD in 1953, earned his detective’s gold shield within three years, and retired in 1980. His NYPD duties included work as a bodyguard for visiting heads of state, and Carter spent time with Cuban leader Fidel Castro and Soviet head Nikita Khrushchev, recalled his son Floyd Jr. He earned a half-dozen citations for his outstanding police work, and survived a number of shootouts with armed bandits.
And still he served his country quietly, steadfastly, with discipline, bravery and loyalty.
Oddly enough, Carter was called up for active duty during the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. Carter remained active into his 90s, serving in November 2015 as the grand marshal of the annual Veterans Day Parade in the Bronx. He was honored by ex-Congressman Charles Rangel in 2005 with a proclamation for his lifelong achievements.
God bless this man, hold him on high, honor him, show him as a stellar representative of the United States. And an American Hero. He deserves no less.
Carter was survived by his wife of more than seven decades and their two children, Floyd Jr. and Rozalind, along with grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Funeral arrangements were not yet finalized.
And so please remind me.

Just why was it that American blacks gave up the once-nuclear black family?
