Black Air Force Cadet Candidate Admits To Writing Racist Message


It turns out the viral story about a racial slur written outside a dorm room at the U.S. Air Force Academy Preparatory School was actually written by one of the black cadet candidates who claimed he was victimized by the message.

In September, five black cadet candidates at the U.S. Air Force Academy Preparatory School reported finding the message “go home n***er” sprawled in marker outside of their dorm room. The incident garnered national attention after U.S. Air Force Academy superintendent Lt. Gen. Jay Silveria issued a fiery speech condemning racism that has received almost two million YouTube views.

The Air Force Times now reports one of the cadet candidates who reported the incident is the person responsible for writing the racial slur.

Lt. Col. Allen Herritage, a spokesman for the academy, told the Air Force Times the cadet candidate is no longer enrolled at the prep academy.

The Colorado Springs Gazette reports Herritage issued a statement saying, “We can confirm that one of the cadet candidates who was allegedly targeted by racist remarks written outside of their dorm room was actually responsible for the act.”

“The individual admitted responsibility and this was validated by the investigation,” he continued.
