Why do senior military officers in African nations always have such a fuckload of medals on their uniforms? I guess the biggest one is trying to bullshit out the smaller ones - as if any of those honors were earned with true valor or greatness. Africans are sure into snappy uniforms that they didn't earn the right to wear.

How could you possibly know that?



If its an American general then they must be brave and honorable and all that, but when it's a black African wearing a military uniform, geesh, well that must mean they're bullshitting everyone. God forbid there are actually black people who deserve and earn the right to wear a uniform.
