A few days ago a picture was released of the first 16 black women to graduate from Americas best know military college at West Point. What these 16 women chose to do is absolutely not except-able for any military personnel especially for any Officer and upon their graduation they are awarded with the rank of 2-LT. These 16 people chose to show their “blackness” to the world and this action is nothing but racist. They all chose to have their graduation picture taken with their clenched fist salute to ‘black power’. This type of action is no different from if white Officers gave the Nazi salute or decided to wear white hoods for the picture. As a former service connected disabled soldier I take great offence to such racism in the ranks. This is something that the military can not tolerate especially among their officers. I totally feel and believe that the Army absolutely must right now discharge these 16 racists with ‘undesirable’ discharges. The Army must do this right now to make an example of them for the sake of the military as a whole. A huge part of being an Officer is the respect factor and I do not know of anyone who has served our country in the armed forces that has any respect for a racist being among them. I have no doubt that if the Army decides to take the cowards way out of this situation and not discharge these racist right now and any of them find their way into a combat unit they will be executed the first day they are in a combat situation. Respect, these racist 16 have no place in our military and the “Brass” had better grow a set of balls and do their job which includes getting these racists out of the ranks right now. If the ‘Brass’ does not do this then they have tainted the institution of West Point beyond repair as well as the reputation of the ‘Officer Class’. Why would anyone ever volunteer to serve in an Army that has racist trash as their commanders?
