West Point Cadets pre-graduation pic
In 2016, sixteen African-American female West Point cadets caught much heat for clenching their fists in a picture.
Some concluded that the gesture suggested their agreeance with the Black Lives Movement – what some have ruled out as a terrorist group.
West Point’s superintendent, Lt. Gen. Robert Caslen Jr. stated that their closed fists were not a political statement.
Caslen stated that the image, which circulated widely on social media, portrayed “a lapse of awareness in how symbols and gestures can be misinterpreted and cause division.”
Sure, but we know better.
