Yes, People are Angry even indignant but you are the leader. Try to ease the concerns, try to answer questions but most of all do not displace your frustration and try real hard to never lose your temper. Name calling is divisive and defeats your expression of reasoning regardless of strength or logic. Try to understand and consider the wisdom of the body who you represent. Forgiveness begins with an Apology.
Also, I would like to point out that Hispanics are only one of the unrepresented people who in unity make up "The American Warrior". If I understand correctly, this documentary is Historically unrepresentative and inaccurate in many aspects.
Does it include women,
or the assignment of the sons of the Elite?
Does it mention Paperclip or Odessa?
Peter Grace, Asbestos or the smuggling of Nazi War Criminals via our southern border?
The point is not about a bias toward Hispanic Soldiers but an ignorance Mr Burns will not address. To ignore the complete portrait of the American Warrior and leave out very significant heroes and characters is not about race but about skewing history and a man who refused to do his homework.

Protesters packed the VFW Post on 10th Street, Thursday, September 13th in support of "Defend the Honor" San Antonio Coalition.
One after one, speakers complained that only 18 minutes of a 14-hour documentary produced by Ken Burns for PBS on WWII to air September 23rd, mentioned contributions of Hispanic soldiers to the War. One speaker pointed out that Hispanics contributed the highest number of Congressional Medal of Honor recipients among minority groups who served in that war.
