Why Did the U.S. Military Discriminate against African-Americans in WWII?

What is your assessment of the 1925 War-College Report on "Employment of Negro Man Power in War?" What was the reason such a report was prepared?

How could the War-College authors, of this report, reach such sweeping and generalized conclusions about all African-Americans?

The report itself notes:  "While the basic communication is not marked 'Secret,' it has been so regarded at the War College." Why would this non-secret document be treated secretly at the War College? 

Explain how this report may have had a bearing on the treatment of African-Americans in the U.S. military (and on the jobs to which they were assigned).
