Air Force Academy Superintendent Addresses Racial Incident

The superintendent of America’s Air Force Academy told hundreds of cadets Thursday to "get out" if they can’t treat other people with "dignity and respect," following an incident at the Academy's preparatory school in which racial slurs were found scrawled on dormitory message boards.

Lt. Gen. Jay Silveria gathered cadets and staff members to denounce the incident and speak about “the power of diversity,” according to a statement released by the Air Force.
