I want to know why there are racist and discrimination benefits being giving by the VA. A VET IS A VET. Are you telling me that because of the color of my skin my life is not as important as another person’s? I did not go through the same thing as the person to my right or left? I was not being fired apon like a black or Indian? When I apply for VA benefits you are telling me that because the color of my skin I am being JUDGED? I AM BEING DISCRIMINATED AGAINST BECAUSE OF MY RACE? What do I have that gives me more than any other person? Please tell me, EXACTLY what are these benefits. VA and this organization are in direct violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. I’ve added the definition of two dictionaries Oxford and Merriam-Webster to “refresh your memory” on Discrimination.

THIS IS IN YOUR FACE DISCRIMINATION!!!

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (42 U.S.C. 2000e and following) prohibits employers from discriminating against applicants and employees on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, and national origin (including membership in a Native American tribe). It also prohibits employers from retaliating against an applicant or employee who asserts his or her rights under the law. Title VII prohibits discrimination in all terms, conditions, and privileges of employment, including hiring, firing, compensation, benefits, job assignments, promotions, and discipline. Title VII also prohibits practices that seem neutral but have a disproportionate impact on a protected group of people. Such a practice is legal only if the employer has a valid reason for using it. For example, a strength requirement might be legal—even though it excludes disproportionate numbers of women—if an employer is using it to fill a job that requires heavy lifting. Such a requirement would not be valid for a desk job, however.
Title VII applies to employers that fit into the following categories:
• private employers with at least 15 employees
• state governments and their political subdivisions and agencies
• the federal government
• employment agencies
• labor organizations, and
• joint labor-management committees and other training programs.

THIS IS IN YOUR FACE DISCRIMINATION!!!

From the Oxford Dictionary

THIS IS IN YOUR FACE DISCRIMINATION!!!

I do not believe that the VA is in direct violation of Title VII- from experience

Each claim is decided on a case by case and needs 3 items to be approved- those who do not have the three items of record, usually get denied. That is where a VSO can assist with obtaining missing elements of your claim.

Good afternoon. My question is: I am rated with 80% VA disabled. Can my spouse be considered my Caregiver; and if so, what must I do to apply for this? Thank you. Herndon ‘Mac’ McMillan

Sgt Arthur Bustamante - How long have you had that 10% rating? You really need to apply for an increase!! Some things are quite easy to get increased just by time, meaning a historic issue.

LCDR Herndon McMillan - I need to make a correction: SMC (Special Monthly Compensation) and not the letters that I gave pay additional monetary benefits on top of a rating.
