The media hailed Air Force Lt Gen Jay Silveria for condemning "hate" and "racism" in an "impassioned speech" late last year after "Go Home Ni**er" was found scrawled on several black cadets' dorm rooms.
"Air Force Academy head to racists: 'Get out,'" CNN's headline read at the time.
Here's some highlights from Silveria's speech as NPR glowingly reported last September:
"That kind of behavior has no place at the prep school, it has no place at USAFA, and it has no place in the United States Air Force," Silveria said, in a speech that has found an enthusiastic reception after it was recorded and published online. "You should be outraged not only as an airman, but as a human being."It turns out -- shockingly -- it was all a hoax.
From The Air Force Times:
One of the five black Air Force Academy preparatory school cadet candidates who had racial slurs written on their dormitory message boards has admitted to writing the slurs, the academy said in a Tuesday statement.Rather than admit they were wrong and apologize for falsely accusing innocent people, Herritage and Silveria said it doesn't matter either way:
“Racism has no place at the academy, in any shape or form,” Herritage said. “We will continue to create a climate of dignity and respect for all, encourage ideas that do so, and hold those who fail to uphold these standards accountable.”Here's some reactions to the news from the comment section in Silveria's speech on YouTube:
Four similar hate hoaxes were exposed in just the last few weeks.
