No, Chuck Yeager Did Not Ground A Black Pilot Destined To Be The First Black Astronaut
It’s another big leftist lie.
The pilot in question was unqualified. The Kennedys pushed him into the test pilot program anyway. He graduated under Yeager’s command, but not without lots of help to get him through. Kennedy’s NASA ended his aspirations to be the first black spaceman.
Yeager was a great American. Period.
