To me, the biggest problem is? That they lied and said that the raising of their fists in the black solidarity sign was not meant to be that at all??? BS, so now we have some women, in the U.S. military, about to be commissioned as officers LYING. That is a big No No in the academy. If I was still in the military, there is absolutely NO way I could believe that they were not racists, and being white, I'm sure if they ordered me to a detail that was a dirty one, I would think it was because I was white..They are liars and racists. If our military does not take their commissions away from them, then our military is asking for dissension in the ranks.. NO ROOM FOR THIS CRAP
