Little effect on total war effort although they performed outstandingly. It had an impact on race because before the black airmen the armed forces deemed blacks not fit for combat and considered them to dumb for anything other than support troops. The Tuskegee guys proved that idea flawed as they performed their duties as pilots just as good as the white pilots and in many instances better.
