Our prestigious military academy at West Point has a contingent of black females who posed for a photo with their fists in the air while in uniform.
The group of 16 black female cadets are being investigated by West Point officials after the picture circulated.
According to the Army Times, there are claims the photo was done in direct support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
“We can confirm that the cadets in this photo are members of the U.S. Military Academy’s Class of 2016,” said West Point’s director of public affairs Lt. Col. Christopher Kasker in an emailed statement to the Army Times.
“Academy officials are conducting an inquiry into the matter.”
The inquiry is meant to determine whether or not the cadets violated the Department of Defense Directive 1344.10, Political Activities by Members of the Armed Forces, a policy that warns against “partisan political activity” while in uniform and also provides a list of political do’s and don’ts for those who are in the service.
This is to most people the Black Power or communist fist symbol. It’s also the symbol used by Black Lives Matter. Black Lives Matter is an anti-white, anti-police hate group.
This is our next generation of military leaders? Is this what we need?
