Air Force general rebukes students over racism at academy

After racial slurs were found on dormitory message boards belonging to five black cadet candidates at the Air Force Academy Preparatory School this week, the academy’s superintendent offered a harsh rebuke of racism, misogyny, and other forms of bigotry.

“If you can’t treat someone with dignity and respect, then you need to get out. If you can’t treat someone of another gender, whether that’s a man or a woman, with dignity and respect, then you need to get out,” Lt. Gen. Jay Silveria said to a gathering of Air Force Academy cadets, flanked by academy officers and staff.
